Romain Grosjean will leave Haas at the end of the season after announcing his exit from the team after five years.

The 34-year-old Frenchman joined the American-owned team ahead of its inaugural season in 2016 but had not been expected to stay on for next year.

“The last chapter is closed and the book is finished,” he wrote in a Facebook post he has since taken down.

“I’ve been with Haas F1 Team since day one.

“Five years during which we went through highs and lows, scored 110 points in 92 races, but the journey was worth it. I’ve learned a lot, improved to be a better driver as well as a better man.

“I hope I’ve also helped people in the team to improve themself. This is probably my biggest pride, more than any of the crazy first races in 2016 or the P4 at the Austrian GP 2018.

“I wish the team all the best for the future.”
