Esteban Gutierrez has confirmed he will leave Haas at the end of the season after one year at the team.
The Mexican driver returned to Formula One with Haas at the beginning of this season. However he has failed to score a point this year while team mate Romain Grosjean has amassed 29.
“Dear friends, I want to share with you that I will no longer be with Haas F1 Team for next season,” Gutierrez posted on social media.
“I want to thank all the team and staff, [especially] Gene Haas for this opportunity to work with them. I wish them all the best. There are two races left, which I intend to enjoy to the fullest and as always, I’ll give my best.”
“Special thanks to all my fans and supporters, you will always have a place in my heart.”
“I hope to shortly share my plans for the future. Warm regards!”
Reports have claimed Kevin Magnussen will take the second seat at Haas next year.
