Kevin Magnussen

Excitement builds amongst fans as they wait for the first race to see how McLaren rookie Kevin Magnussen fares.

The last time McLaren fielded in a rookie, his name Lewis Hamilton and we all know the success they had together.

A proven winner in a number of different categories in his earlier years, the 21-year-old has the respect of the paddock due to his credentials.

2014 will be a massive jump for the Dane but the team believe he is more then ready for his shot. 

The pressure is certainly on as he has to prove that the team made the right choice in fielding him and sacking Sergio Perez after just one season at McLaren.
