Magnussen finished 20th in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Formula 1 race at the Yas Marina Circuit Sunday evening.
Magnussen would pit on lap 6 to switch medium for hard tyres, setting up a big second stint. It would later be revealed that he locked up the brakes in turn 16 making the very early stop and tyre change necessary. That would put Magnussen on an alternate pit strategy and mire him in the back of the field the rest of the way. He would fall 1-lap down to Max Verstappen
on lap 52 and ride to a disappointing 20th-place finish at the Yas Marina Circuit.
