Kevin Magnussen revealed that he suffered from misfire during the Austrian GP and was “praying to God” that the engine would not break down.

Magnussen finished Sunday’s race at the Red Bull Ring 8th, having scored 4 points. However, the Haas driver had encountered issues with his engine, which might have led to retirement.

“It was a slight issue that didn’t make me feel so good because I was getting very nervous it would blow up. It’s not the first time this year,” Magnussen commented on the matter.

“But there was good pace in the car and even with that slight misfire every time I went on throttle it was still fast and I was able to still score points.

“About 15 laps in I started getting it and then it was just every time I went on throttle on very low revs. I had to use one gear lower in every corner, which wasn’t ideal.

“But I was able to finish the race, I was praying to God that it wouldn’t blow up and it didn’t so [I am] very happy.”
