The Singapore Grand Prix was one that McLaren’s Kevin Magnussen will not forget in a hurry.

The young Danish driver finished 10th in the two hour time limited race, with the Grand Prix being physically tough on the McLaren racer.

Over team radio it was clear that he was unable to take on fluid as the drink bottle was too hot and was virtually burning his mouth.

Then under the safety car period Magnussen was seen lifting his arms out of the cockpit in a bid to get some draft through his race suit.

?It was tough, very tough, Especially with the seat being that hot it was very bad. But we made it through and got a point.

?It?s the hardest-earned point I?ve ever had.?
Magnussen told Sky Sports.

Following the Grand Prix Sky Sports Ted Kravitz reported news that Magnussen had actually suffered burns to his back due to an extremely hot cockpit, but the driver took to Twitter to deny the reports: ‘some newspapers say I had burns and had medical treatment for it. That’s a bit exaggerated, I was just hot and sweaty!’
