Haas problems continue as Magnussen admits "P16 is our pole"

Haas problems continue as Magnussen admits "P16 is our pole"

Kevin Magnussen was again left to lament Haas' lack of pace at Silverstone as he and team-mate Romain Grosjean endured a miserable qualifying session for the British Grand Prix.

Haas knew heading into the weekend the circuit would underline the inadequacies of the car, with team principal Guenther Steiner stating it would bring "no joy".

After qualifying 16th, although with AlphaTauri's Daniil Kvyat facing a five-place grid drop for a gearbox change, a downcast Magnussen said: "I think P16 is our pole position.

"There's no way that we can go that much quicker with this car to get P15 - not on this track at least. I think we did everything we could today.

"There's going to be a car or two with a penalty tomorrow, so maybe we will start P15 or P14. That's the best we can hope for."

From four races this season each driver has only managed to escape Q1 once, and with no updates planned it is a statistic neither is confident will change.

Grosjean said: "It's a challenge for us for the minute to get out of Q2.

"We have the car that we have and there aren't any updates coming, so we just need to optimise that and hope that the others don't bring that much either."
