Magnussen looking for second-half improvement
Kevin Magnussen is feeling optimistic about Haas' chances of enjoying a positive end to the Formula One season.
It has been a season of frustration for Haas so far and they currently occupy ninth in the Constructors' Championship, having amassed just 26 points from the first 12 races of the campaign.
Only Williams, who have just one point, are keeping the American manufacturers off the bottom of the standings, with reports claiming chief Guenther Steiner is considering a driver shake-up for 2020.
However, Magnussen, who has only recorded three top-10 results this year, is optimistic better will come after the mid-season break.
"I think there have been some pretty high moments this year, especially in qualifying," he is quoted as saying by F1i.com. "So, I'm looking forward to the second half of the year and I'm full of hope that it's going to be better and we're going to improve on our understanding, so that we can hopefully finish off the last half of the season in a stronger way."
