Haas duo Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean have revealed discussions over extending their stays with the team for the 2021 Formula 1 season haven’t started.

The duo have been teammates since 2017 but team boss Guenther Steiner admitted ahead of the Belgian Grand Prix Haas is open to having an entirely new driver line-up for next year.

With Racing Point announcing Sebastian Vettel as its new driver for 2021, speculation is rife as to where the ousted Sergio Perez will end up.

Perez is a potential option for the American team, while Nico Hulkenberg is also available having been heavily linked with a move to Haas at the end of 2019.

Speaking ahead of the Tuscan Grand Prix at Mugello, Magnussen said he wasn’t ‘worrying’ too much about his future and is remaining focused on the task at hand.

“You never really know so that’s one thing I’ve learnt in Formula One that you can never be sure,” Magnussen said. “You have to do the best every time in the car and just wait and see what the future holds. There are some very good drivers on the market so it’s a competitive market at the moment. I don’t worry about it too much - I just try to do my best on track.“

When asked if he had held any discussions with Haas, Magnussen said: “Not actually, no. It hasn’t really started so we will see when that happens and take it from there.”

Like Magnussen, Grosjean is also unsure of his F1 future having been with the team since its maiden season in 2016.

“Very similar to Kev,” Grosjean added. “Yes it’s competitive and it’s great, and it’s how F1 should be. Just going to do my best and let’s see what we can do in the future.

“The team was focused first on getting the Concorde Agreement and so on, which is more than understandable. Now being in a triple header, it’s difficult to get time to speak about it, so no not really.”
