F1 2021: Grosjean and Magnussen dropped by Haas for 2021
Haas F1 Team will field a completely new driver line-up next year as the American team part ways with Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean after four consecutive seasons.
30th October 2020
Announcing on their social media accounts, both Grosjean and Magnussen said that this season would be their last with the team.
Grosjean, who has been with the team since it's debut at the 2016 Australian GP, looks to be leaving F1 for good with Magnussen, who joined the team in 2017, is also set to be out his way out of the sport.
Haas are currently experiencing their worst season to date with only three points which leaves them 9th in the standings.
Grosjean is in his ninth full F1 campaign while Magnussen has been on the grid since 2014. Both drivers are therefore very experienced and this experience was vital for the team securing 5th in the Constructors Championship in 2018.
Their best result came in Austria that year as Grosjean and Magnussen steered their VF-18's to 4th and 5th which contributed to their points haul for the year of 93.
Getting the car to perform to the best of it's ability has been a struggle for the past couple of years with the team dropping from 5th in 2018, to 9th last year with only 28 points.
With Haas signing the new Concorde Agreement to keep them in the sport for the next five years from 2021, the American team are plotting a new five-year strategy.
F2 Championship and son of Seven Time World Champion Michael Schumacher, Mick Schumacher, is expected to take one of the Haas seats due to his links with the Ferrari Young Driver Academy.
