Kevin Magnussen may replace Sergio Perez at McLaren

Kevin Magnussen may replace Sergio Perez at McLaren for next season apparently...bit of a risk being such a newbie.
If it happens lets hope he doesn't disappoint like his dad did.

Yeah on the other hand what if he turns out to be the next Lewis Hamilton? We know for sure Sergio Perez is not.

Yea..never been a massive Perez fan.
Re: Kevin Magnussen.
"He has had two runs in an F1 car [and] in Abu Dhabi, on his third flying lap, he did a time that was good enough for sixth on the grid, which is pretty impressive," said Whitmarsh.

When you are McLaren and your best driver is in 9th with most of the season done and you are more than 400 points behind in the constructor's heads must roll. Perez doesn't seem like much of a sacrifice to be honest, tough luck for him since I suspect the Honda engine in 2015 will inject more relative speed in the car.

I'd love it if KM turned to be massively fast...you can never have too many hotshoes in F1.

Looks like it is a done deal according to the BBC today.

Glad that Mclaren wisened up.

Sad that it had to be after the fact. Hopefully Perez can find a seat. Better to have him around than Maldonado.

Brutal for Checo. They bring him in, provide an all time shit car (for Mclaren), and expect him to make lemonade.

Why is Hulkenberg not being considered for the seat??

Hope they provide the Magnussen kid a better ride.

JPM has a lot of weight to lose before he can fit into a Penske car next year. The guy has been on a Nascar diet for the last few years.

Too many "soda cookies", I doubt he'd even fit in there.

I hope this kid performs next year so that he'll get a seat the following year when the Honda McLaren era begins.

I think McLaren's performance next year will be the same as this year.
