The Haas administration recently announced that both their drivers, Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen, will have to vacate their cockpits. The Team Principal has been hinting at it for a long time, and it finally came to fruition. What’s more, the decision did not surprise the Frenchman as he knew it was coming.
Grosjean took to social media to update all his fans about the new developments; however, the kind of love that he received from the fans left him bewildered. The only post that crossed the 100k+ likes mark on his Instagram was about his split with Haas.
The racer joked about the same in a tweet saying, “My first ever 100k + like picture on Instagram is the one I announce I’m not going to race with Haas in 2021… Not sure how I should take it”
Romain Grosjean might have joked about it on Twitter, but even he realizes how pitiful the state is. This is a testament to how shallow and mindless the world of social media is.
It is no wonder that racers like Max Verstappen are opting to stay away from it as much as possible.
A number of fans sparked a conspiracy after Max Verstappen unfollowed Honda and Red Bull on social media. Many blew the situation out of proportion citing chatter about the Dutchman’s desire to part ways with the Milton Keynes based outfit.
Max later billed it as an effort to pull away from all the unnecessary drama of F1 and focus on his racing.
Haas’ Team Principal, Guenther Steiner, was quite open about his plans for 2021. With new regulations coming his way, his desire to pull the American outfit out of their misery was bolstered.
Although the Haas administration has not declared their new drivers for the next season, suggestions have popped up already. The most probable line up would be Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin.
With Alfa Romeo possibly retaining Giovinazzi, Mick’s next option is Haas. The young German will be ready for anything and is sure to excel in whichever format necessary.
