I can relate to why they would want to match Magnussen with Button and see how this pans out, can they work together, learn from each other and just as important can the drivers help improving the cars based on their feedback, they are the ones driving the cars and not the technicians but overall it is all teamwork and the right sponsors of course :-)

 

I consider Kevin Magnussen to be extremely talented. His performance in the Formula 3.5 series this year was quite impressive.  I would not be surprised if he within the next couple of years or so would manage to capture the formula one crown if his car is on par with his talent, on the other hand he could just be an intermediate for one season until they can bring back whoever McLaren really wants... 

Quoting myself from a few months back..about the Danish rookie Kevin Magnussen...

 

First test results...still early days.. but...

Fastest test time of them all. Although I will not read too much into this... The facts speaks.. He is fast and just a rookie in a McLaren... I know that his father was probably an even more talented driver but had some personal issues to deal with but his son has way more integrity which will make him very successful on the F1 circuit..Wait and see..

The bit about Redbull puts a small smile on my face.

Made for each other???
 
McLaren and Lotus 2014 cars
 
 

McLaren and Lotus were next to reveal their machines and it was soon apparent that their cars were made for each other. Top Gear commented that the McLaren looked like “a big silver gentleman’s sausage,” while the pitch-fork was one of many nicknames given to the Lotus. "

Watching testing in Bahrain now - Mercedes and McLaren definitely seem to have a league to themselves for the time being. Things still not looking too good for Red Bull...

Maybe not - there was a time when people would have thought it pretty unlikely that Williams would make a car incapable of challenging for the World Championship, and now we're all so excited because we hope this year's Williams might get a podium or two. Sometimes it happens gradually, and sometimes it happens suddenly.

 

Personally I see Red Bull this year as being more like McLaren in 2009 - behind at the start because they focused too much on last year before the big regulations shake up, then catching up as the season progresses. I don't think they can win, though.

Final days of testing here, sounds a lot like fuel consumption might be a determining factor on who will be challenging for wins. Of course they would need to not break down first, the Renault engined cars are STILL having issues grinding out laps.

Renault cars still having issues?

Darn…
