Kevin Magnussen says he was approached by another Formula 1 team after being ousted by Haas.
The Dane, who is currently enjoying a competitive start to his post-F1 career at Daytona, told the Danish magazine Dossier that he turned down the alternate Formula 1 seat.
"I can't really say who it was, because I think it will make someone mad," Magnussen smiled in Daytona. "Because it was a team that is no better than Haas. It's not that hard to figure out."
Haas finished the 2020 world championship ninth - just ahead of Williams, and just behind Alfa Romeo.
"Even though I had a chance to stay in F1, I didn't feel motivated to continue like that," Magnussen, 28, insisted.
"I would have liked to have had a chance to win with one of the big teams."
