Magnussen switches to DAMS for 2013
3 December 2012 – Kevin Magnussen will contest his second season in Formula Renault 3.5 with DAMS, the Dane opting to switch teams after a debut campaign with British-based Carlin.
The 20-year-old McLaren protégé finished seventh in the standings at the end of his rookie year, claiming one victory in Belgium. He also drove for McLaren at the Abu Dhabi Young Driver test in November, posting the fastest time of the week.
Magnussen will be joined by Norman Nato at the squad, with the latter stepping up from Formula Renault 2.0. It was also confirmed on Monday that race winner Arthur Pic and Brazil's Yann Cunha will form the line-up at new team AV Formula.
