F1 driver Romain Grosjean leaves Haas racing stable at the end of the season. The 34-year-old Frenchman announced the news of his departure on Facebook. “The last chapter is closed and the book is finished,” he posted. Grosjean thus seems to allude to the end of his career. His team mate Kevin Magnussen also announced his retirement a little later. The 28-year-old Dane indicated that he would soon make plans for his future public.
“I’ve been with Haas’s team since the very beginning,” Grosjean began explaining. “For five years we alternated highs and lows, racking up 110 points in 92 races, but it was worth the whole journey. I have learned a lot, have become a better pilot and a better person during that period. ”
“I hope I have been able to help other members of the team improve as well,” the Frenchman continued. “I am probably most proud of that, more than in that crazy opening phase of the championship in 2016 or my fourth place in Austria in 2018. I wish the team the best in the future.”
“Being part of a new team was a big challenge and I enjoyed it. It has given me a lot of experience and I have certainly grown as a driver ”, Magnussen noted on the team website. The Dane drove for Haas for four years. He can claim two fifth places as the best performance in the car of the team, which bears the name of owner Gene Haas.
The announcements from Grosjean and Magnussen come a day before the start of the free practice sessions in Portimao for the Formula 1 Grand Prix of Portugal, the twelfth of seventeen rounds on the F1 calendar rescheduled by the corona pandemic.
It is not yet known who will drive for Haas next year. The name of Mick Schumacher, son of Michael Schumacher, echoes in the corridors.
