Former Formula 1 driver Marc Surer has claimed Haas driver Nico Hulkenberg's explosive return to the grid is 'destroying' his team-mate Kevin Magnussen's career, saying the Danish driver is getting a taste of his own medicine after doing the same to Mick Schumacher.
Surer drew parallels to Magnussen's F1 return, when the son of seven-time world champion Michael struggled to consistently keep up with the experienced driver.
However, now the tables have turned with Hulkenberg running the show for Haas. The German driver has amassed nine points for the American team, compared to Magnussen's solitary point.
While their race pace appears relatively similar, the qualifying performance has been a noticeable divergence, with Hulkenberg out-qualifying Magnussen by a margin of nine to three.
