Romain Grosjean announces he is leaving Haas at the end of the season

Romain Grosjean has announced he will be leaving Haas at the end of the season.

Grosjean, 34, has been with the American team since they entered Formula One in 2016.

It is expected that Haas are poised to announce an overhaul of their current driver line-up for 2021, with the future of Grosjean’s team-mate Kevin Magnussen also in doubt.

Frenchman Grosjean has made 175 starts in F1 but the concluding six races of the season are set to be his last in the sport.

“The last chapter is closed and the book is finished,” said Grosjean in a Facebook post ahead of this weekend’s Portuguese Grand Prix.

“I’ve been with Haas since day one. Five years during which we went through highs and lows, scored 110 points in 92 races, but the journey was worth it. I’ve learned a lot, improved to be a better driver as well as a better man.

“I hope I’ve also helped people in the team to improve themselves. This is probably my biggest pride, more than any of the crazy first races in 2016 or fourth at the Austrian GP 2018. I wish the team all the best for the future.”
