Kevin Magnussen is expected to switch to Haas next season in a potential two-year deal which signals the end of his partnership with Renault after just one year.

The Danish driver is believed to be set to sign a deal which would keep him at Haas until 2018 with the option of a third year at the US team, according to the BBC.

Magnussen had sounded out his intention to stay with Renault but after the French manufacturer delayed its driver line-up decision having already announced Nico Hulkenberg for 2017, the 24-year-old has accepted Haas's offer.

Magnussen, who is expected to team-mate Romain Grosjean at the American team for 2017, began his F1 career with McLaren in 2014 before losing his race seat a year later and was forced to take a year out of the sport.

The Danish driver returned to F1 this year after being a late replacement for Pastor Maldonado at Renault and despite looking to build a long-term future with the French manufacturer it appears he has lost patience and wants to guarantee himself a drive for next year to avoid a repeat situation during his time with McLaren.

Magnussen has scored seven of Renault's eight world championship points so far in its comeback campaign as a fully-fledged squad in F1.

If the deal is confirmed it will signal Esteban Gutierrez's likely exit from Haas but still leaves a number of drivers potentially in line to join Hulkenberg at Renault including Jolyon Palmer, Esteban Ocon and Felipe Nasr.
