Magnussen's daughter steals qualifying show in heartwarming moment

Magnussen's daughter steals qualifying show in heartwarming moment

Kevin Magnussen had a little helper in the Haas garage as he prepared to start his qualifying session in Abu Dhabi on Saturday.

The Danish driver was joined by his daughter Laura, who aided him as he put on his helmet and gloves.

Unfortunately for Magnussen, he struggled to put in a strong time, getting knocked out in P17.

While Magnussen has struggled for on-track success in 2023, he had a reason to celebrate away from the grid, welcoming the birth of his second daughter this year.

Taking to social media, the Haas driver announced in July: "Laura is now a big sister. Welcome to the world Agnes. We love you so much. You’re [his wife, Louise Gjørup] a superstar.”
