#2 Magnussen gets under someone else's skin

While being an F1 driver will inevitably lead to some conflict on track, no other driver on the current grid seems to be antagonised as much as Kevin Magnussen.

The Danish driver most recently got into it with Charles Leclerc in Suzuka, with the Monegasque driver plainly claiming "Magnussen is, and always will be, stupid!" In the past, Magnussen has also had run-ins with Jenson Button, Sergio Perez, teammate Romain Grosjean, Fernando Alonso and most famously, Nico Hulkenberg.

While the Dane didn't go as far as to telling Leclerc to suck anything, as he did with Hulkenberg, it's clear that he does not intend to yield on the track to anybody.

Currently sitting at a tied 7th with Perez and Hulkenberg in the standings, we see the Haas driver getting into a tangle with someone completely new in Austin. Some of the drivers that he hasn't necessary honked off in the past include Sirotkin, Ocon, Hartley and Valtteri Bottas. Will one of them be prone to an outburst against Magnussen in the USA?

We don't know, but we sure see the Dane being a big talking point coming out of Austin.
