Kevin Magnussen says he will look around to see if a move to a top team might be on the cards.

Although unpopular among many of his rivals, the Dane has impressed at Haas this year and is outperforming his more highly-paid team mate Romain Grosjean.

"I'm happy to be here even if I don't know what will happen in the future. "But I feel comfortable with my team and that they appreciate what I do. I really like the environment we have here," he told Marca newspaper in Monaco.

Magnussen happy for now

Magnussen's two-year Haas contract expires at the end of the year, and it is believed the American team has the option to renew it for 2019.

"We are going to see if I have the opportunity to be in a leading team to fight for the championship, as any driver with ambition would accept that opportunity. But until that happens, we have a competitive car and I am really happy," Magnussen said.

That is despite the fact that many of his F1 rivals have complained about his on-track aggression. There has also been criticism in the press.

"I focus on the team and block all of that out. If I want to put something on social media, I have people who take care of it so I don't need to look. It's all a distraction and it can be frustrating if you let it get into your head," said Magnussen.
