Dennis says Magnussen has the right stuff to be world champion

Kevin Magnussen has world champion potential claims his McLaren boss Ron Dennis, after the rookie finished second in the season-opening Australian Grand Prix.

The young Dane crossed the line third but after Daniel Ricciardo’s exclusion inherited second place, delivering one of the most impressive displays of driving by a Formula 1 debutant in recent memory.

Dennis said afterwards, “Magnussen has all the ingredients necessary to win a World Championship, although he has to be in a competitive car.”

He added, “It’s only one race and we’ll see where he is after four, but I don’t have any concerns about his temperament, focus or commitment, and he is prepared to make whatever sacrifices are necessary.”
