Kevin Magnussen has reiterated his desire to stay in Formula 1 with Renault for the long-term, following the manufacturer’s decision to sign Nico Hülkenberg on a multi-year deal.
Magnussen joined Renault at the start of the year when Pastor Maldonado encountered funding problems, but the Dane’s future at the team remains unclear, amid its acquisition of Hülkenberg.
Reports in the US press on Monday evening suggested Magnussen was in contention once more for an IndyCar seat, having come close to racing in the category in 2015.
However, Magnussen has rejected such rumours and has insisted that he wants to remain with Renault in Formula 1, though admits being “impatient” over the wait.
“Seeing rumours around about me in IndyCar,” Magnussen posted on social media.
“I’m a big fan of IndyCar but those are really just rumours. [There’s] nothing to it.
“I feel confident my future is in Formula 1 and there should be no doubt I intent to stay with Renault Sport for many years if I can.
“Unfortunately there is nothing yet to announce regarding my future, but hopefully there will be soon. I too am getting impatient!”
