Kevin Harvick could not resist taking a picture of his son in the car, which F1 driver Kevin Magnussen drove. The car model is from the 2018 season when Magnussen bagged 11 Top 10 finishes and a best finish of 5th that year.

Of course, several NASCAR fans were thrilled to see this semi-crossover between F1 and NASCAR. Some laughingly declared that an F1 car was a lot more complicated than a go-kart. Others predicted that they could see great things unfolding for the 10-year-old.

There were a few jokes that Keelan Harvick would soon fall in love with F1 instead of NASCAR. Some fans even boldly declared that Keelan could be the next great American F1 driver. Ultimately, the choice lies with Keelan and his father Kevin Harvick, on the boy’s career path.

How have Kevin Harvick and Kevin Magnussen performed in 2022?

In 2022, both Haas teams enjoyed a fair amount of success and decent performances. Harvick himself managed to notch up two consecutive Cup Series wins at Michigan and at Richmond.

Meanwhile, Kevin Magnussen pulled off some up-and-down performances in the 2022 Formula One season. Undoubtedly, the biggest highlight in his career was a maiden pole position at the Brazilian Grand Prix. Admittedly, he was unable to finish the actual race, because he got punted out by Daniel Ricciardo. Nevertheless, the overnight hero definitely turned a lot of heads on that Friday.
