Dennis pays tribute to Magnussen

NEWS STORY

As the Dane announces the end of his relationship with McLaren, Ron Dennis has issued the following farewell to Kevin Magnussen:

"Kevin has always done a very impressive and professional job for McLaren in the five years since he joined our Young Driver Programme in 2010.

"In 2014 he raced very well alongside Jenson, who is a hugely experienced and very quick World Champion. Kevin's Grand Prix debut in Melbourne last year was rewarded with a podium that day that he, and we, can be justifiably proud of.

"Kevin has continued to work hard for us in 2015, supporting Fernando and Jenson, although he was understandably frustrated not to be racing.

"He is extremely keen to return to racing next year, and, in keeping with our tradition with our young drivers, we will not stand in the way of his ability to fulfil his ambition and potential.

"He is a very talented racing driver, and he deserves to have a Formula 1 career, as Jenson has publicly said.

"Evidently, we have no space for him at McLaren-Honda as a race driver next year, but there is no shame in being edged out by two World Champions, Fernando and Jenson. We wish Kevin well, and will do all we can to help him successfully embark on the next chapter of his racing career."

"Well Ron the easiest way to see that he gets the F1 career that you think he so richly deserves is to fire that money chasing driver from Great Briton and give the seat to him. It might also serve as a great way to see if Alonso can still walk the walk or if he is just all talk now. "
