Re­nault new boy Kevin Mag­nussen will be ex­tra-mo­ti­vated this year af­ter his ax­ing by Mclaren, ac­cord­ing to team-mate Jolyon Palmer. Mag­nussen was part of Mclaren’s race team in 2014 be­fore be­ing rel­e­gated to third driver for last year and even­tu­ally dumped by the team. Palmer said: “He’s a good driver who has proven what he can do in F1 al­ready. If they [Mclaren] were strug­gling to de­cide who should stay be­tween Kevin and Jen­son [But­ton], then it says some­thing. I’m sure he’s go­ing to be un­be­liev­ably mo­ti­vated to show Mclaren why he shouldn’t have been dropped.”
