the Debut was a blessing and a curse at the same time. Second put the dreams of all danes are able to spell to Formula 1.
Five years later, the world championship any longer from Kevin Magnussens range than both he himself, and the big group of Danish F1 fans who are still following him intensively, could wish for. And he still has reunions with the podium for good.
This weekend rounded he is 100 grandprixer in motor sport's finest and most ruthless class, which in itself is as significant a milestone, it may never be surpassed.
Jan Magnussen reached 25. Nicolas Kiesa five!
Since 1950, has 71 racers rounded 100 grandprixer before Kevin Magnussen. Alone to establish the top of the motorsports pyramid is an achievement, which is worth it to hoist the Dannebrog order. Enjoy it as long as it lasts.

He will never world champion. This is the typical comments from a highly passionate group who are ready at the keys, when Kevin Magnussen's one-hundredth of a second after its teamkammerat, or Haas have a bad weekend.
How to bother spend so much energy on a sport you don't understand, and how a sportsman you don't like it, can arouse such feelings, and diligence, is difficult to understand.
But the attitude is an affront to elitesportsfolk.
Christian Eriksen stop his career, because he doesn't win something with Tottenham? Is Danish OLYMPIC athletes ' career wasted if they never win gold. One could argue that it is an achievement in itself to compete at The Olympic Games. Just as it is to establish itself in Formula 1.
the Sport actually reminds of the Premier League and Primera Divison, where you only win titles with quite a few teams.

recently to explain just HOW good the drivers actually are. On tv it looks easy, but only a very few people on this planet can control a race car with centimetre accuracy at extreme speeds.
Cars and big budgets just means more than drivers in modern Formula 1.
Michael Schumacher won seven WORLD cup titles, but nothing when he did comeback after a four-year hiatus. A third place finish in three seasons was the best result. Had the sport's largest lost his abilities?
No, his car was not competitive.
Like Daniel Ricciardo last year won the race for Red Bull and now its really difficult to beat Nico Hülkenberg in a Renault key among the gang.
Such is the sport of ...

still have a chance to become Formula 1 world champion?
Certainly, and therefore he becomes in the sport, so long as it is possible.
Is it likely?
No, it will require significant changes or a seat in a topteam, which is not in the cards.
But take the dane's old McLaren-teamkammerat Jenson Button. He made his debut as a 20-year-old and ran five seasons without winning. Six years into its 113. contest he won the final a race. Well, three years later, in 2009 in its tenth season, got the stars right, and he was world champion. Imagine if he had stopped after 100 years ...
It is neither impossible or too late.
the Extra Leaf has followed from the paddock, since the adventure started, and have no plans to stop.
So thank you for the adventure, Kevin. It must end happily.
