Quotes: Dieter Rencken

In the round-up: Haas team principal Guenther Steiner defended his driver Kevin Magnussen following criticism from Pierre Gasly.

What they say

Steiner was told Gasly had described Magnussen as “the most dangerous driver I ever raced against” following the collision between the pair in Baku:

“Sixth place in the Feature Race was a pretty decent recovery after how the race began. The clutch instantly bit and the car stalled at the green light for the installation lap so I started from the pit-lane at the back.”
