Magnussen and Grosjean to remain with Haas for the 2019 Formula One season

London, September 28: Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean will remain with Haas for the 2019 Formula One season.

Magnussen is ninth in the driver standings with 49 points in his second season with the American team following his move from Renault.

Grosjean, who has driven for Haas since its inception in 2016, has 27 points to his name, leaving them fifth in the constructor standings ahead of the Russian Grand Prix this weekend.

Team principal Guenther Steiner said the duo deserved to keep their seats following what has been Haas' best season.

"From the very beginning, we needed experienced drivers to hasten the development of our car and our team, and we have two very good and experienced drivers in Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen," said Steiner.

"We've improved drastically from last year to this year, so retaining both drivers was a pretty easy decision."

He added: "I think the 100-point barrier should be and will be broken, and we'll do it with Romain and Kevin.

"Both drivers push each other to be better, and their collective feedback allows us to be better. It's not a coincidence that in their second year as team-mates, Haas is having its best year.

"By keeping Romain and Kevin together, we aim to do even better next year."
