Denmark’s Formula 1 hope Kevin Magnussen will not have his contract renewed by McLaren for next season, according to Autosport.

Autosport revealed, however, that the young Dane could very well have a future in Formula 1 and is one of three drivers being considered for Lotus’s second seat alongside Pastor Madonaldo.

Magnussen first joined British racing team McLaren in 2012 and swiftly rose through its ranks.
