Seems like Magnussen maybe broke some kind of deal between him and Grosjean?

Naah, more like PF1 that loves to make mountains out of nothing. That site lives on repeating what others said/wrote and loves to twisting those words. The conversation talked about might as well be GS wanting to tell KMag "Well done and don't be to hard on Grosjean".

 

As for the two drivers my take is that Grosjean had been harder on his tires than KMag, so at the restart he had less grip left and maybe he also hadn't let them get a bit cold or he was simply napping. Clearly KMag wasn't napping and had Grosjean not made things a little difficult he might have grabbed spot #6 as well.

Cool find.

 

The guy got form: https://en.wikipedia...lly_(1986–2001)

 

And not only is he successful he also seems to be a genuine quality guy. Like just look at how they at Haas do well by all their personal, something which certainly isn't a given in F1.

Combine Grosjean's God-gift with Magnussen's grit and you've got a great driver IMO.

I came across the analysis that Jolyon Palmer did for F1 of the Barcelona race, he looks at what went on at the start and also at the restart so he cover the 2xHaas thing.
