Despite a still disappointing 2019, Haas F1 will also start next Formula 1 season with Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen at the start. The expiring contract of the 33-year-old Grosjean has been extended on Thursday.

"Experience is one of the building blocks of Haas. With Grosjean and Magnussen we have a solid foundation for continuing to grow. We can continue to build on their knowledge of business and quality," says team boss Günther Steiner.

"It is a difficult year for us with the changeable performance of our car, but our experience will help us improve and move forward as a unit."

Haas is disappointing this year and plays a supporting role in the World Cup standings, with Grosjean on the seventeenth and Magnussen - who already had a contract up to and including 2020 - in sixteenth place. In total, the finish was not achieved eight times.

Grosjean has been riding for Haas since 2016, the racing season's debut season. He is in his eighth full year as a Formula 1 driver. The 26-year-old Magnussen came over from Renault two years ago and will start his sixth year in 2020.

A turbulent season for Haas

It is an eventful season for Haas on several fronts, as the team came into conflict with title sponsor Rich Energy. Earlier this month, both parties split up after a long soap.

This season, after fourteen of the 22 Grands Prix, Haas is in ninth place in the World Championship stand for constructors. With 26 points, only the poorly performing Williams stays ahead.

Haas and the other Formula 1 teams are currently preparing for the fifteenth Grand Prix of the season in Singapore. This season is also being raced in Russia, Japan, Mexico, the United States, Brazil and Abu Dhabi.
