Magnussen to get married next summer
Kevin Magnussen has revealed he is engaged to be married.
Denmark's Ekstra Bladet newspaper reports that the Haas driver proposed to his girlfriend Louise.
"Yes, it is true that we will be married in the summer," Magnussen confirmed in Mexico.
Danish media said the wedding will take place in the August break next year.
Magnussen says he has been engaged for some time now, but didn't feel the need to announce it.
"It's strange to me to share my privacy with people I do not know," said the Dane. "So I do not want to go into too much detail and I hope people respect that."
Magnussen is much keener to let the world know his opinion about the 'fuel economy' rules in formula one, which led to his disqualification in Austin a week ago.
He says the rules are "stupid".
"The end of the race was not a race anymore. Nobody attacking, nobody defending. How is that racing?" Magnussen is quoted by SID news agency.
"The last lap we all drove down the straight at half throttle. It was a joke."
