Premier Power Driver Kevin Magnussen Signed by Vodaphone McLaren Formula One Team
15th November 2014
Kevin Magnussen who drove using Premier Power Formula Ford engines in 2008 to win the Danish Formula Ford Championship has been signed by the Vodaphone McLaren Formula One Team to drive in 2014. Kevin now twenty one, won the Danish Formula Ford Championship at only fifteen, has worked his way up the motorsport ladder, winning this year’s International Renault 3.5 Championship. Kevin, son of former Formula one driver and now sports car driver Jan Magnussen, will partner 2009 F1 Champion Jenson Button at McLaren in what is to be a new generation of Formula One, as the Formula sees the return of smaller capacity turbo charged engines.
Stuart, managing director of Premier Power said, “It’s great to see Kevin get his chance at the big time”. “He was a very mature and committed driver for someone so young back when he was racing Formula Ford, I’m sure he’ll do well in Formula One”.
