Gutierrez announces Haas departure

11 Nov 2016

Esteban Gutierrez is to leave the Haas team at the end of the season. The Mexican driver made the announcement via social media on Friday morning, saying he hopes to reveal his future plans soon.

Gutierrez joined Haas for their maiden F1 campaign, having previously raced for Sauber, but unlike team mate Romain Grosjean has thus far failed to score for the American squad - despite finishing 11th on no less than five occasions.

Renault’s Kevin Magnussen has been widely tipped to replace Gutierrez alongside Grosjean at Haas for 2017, though the team has yet to make any official driver announcements.

Gutierrez, 25, is set to end the season with a total of 59 F1 starts to his name, with his best finish to date a seventh place at the 2013 Japanese Grand Prix. That year also saw him set the fastest lap in Spain.
