The relaxed home life that helps F1’s Kevin Magnussen to deliver – Motorsport.com

“Are you Mr Magnussen?”
Finally, after half an hour of walking along the harbour in Kevin Magnussen’s home city of Roskilde with GP Racing in tow, Denmark’s only current Formula 1 driver is stopped by a group of people wanting to pose for a picture. But they’re not local – they’re French tourists here to visit sights such as Roskilde’s famous Viking Ship Museum and UNESCO-listed gothic cathedral rather than stalk one of the area’s most famous sporting sons.
‘Mr Magnussen’ confirms his identity and politely agrees to pose.
It would be easy to get the impression Kevin’s compatriots aren’t that interested in him, as if he’s simply another face on the street – the boy from next door perhaps – rather than Kevin Magnussen, F1 driver. Over the next couple of hours, as Kevin guides GP Racing around various parts of what is one of Denmark’s oldest cities, he isn’t intercepted in this manner again.
