The driver added: “Due to a harmless but unexpected hand surgery next week, it’s uncertain whether I’ll be able to race at Daytona.”

Magnussen was due to compete in the Daytona 24 Hours in a Porsche 911 GT3 R with his father Jan and team mates Mark Kvamme and Trenton Estep.

He is now expected to return in the F1 pre-season test in late-February.
