Magnussen not ruling out IndyCar future

(GMM) Kevin Magnussen is not ruling out using 2021 as a springboard into America’s top open wheeler category IndyCar.

It was announced on Thursday that, having lost his Haas seat, the 28-year-old Dane will drive for Chip Ganassi’s IMSA sports car team next year.

His first race next year will be Daytona at the end of January.

“I’m looking forward to driving in cars again in which I can win,” Magnussen said in Bahrain.

Chip Ganassi also has a top IndyCar team, and so Magnussen was asked if 2021 might be a springboard into that top series.

“You never know what the future holds,” the Danish driver said.

“I have signed a contract with a team that is very successful in different racing categories, and I am very happy to continue my career in the US.

“My father has been racing in the States for 20 years and I’ve been to many races with him. I loved the atmosphere and the tracks, so I’m looking forward to the beginning of this new chapter in my career.”
