The Haas F1 Team’s Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean have confirmed that their chances of securing seats in the NTT IndyCar Series for next season are looking increasingly slim.
Speaking ahead of the Turkish Grand Prix this weekend, Romain Grosjean said that his wife and three kids are living in Switzerland and that it is unlikely that he will move to the U.S for the NTT IndyCar Series.
Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean are hopeful that they could try to enter the Indianapolis 500 as a one off but Kevin Magnussen says he is unlikely to secure backing for a drive in IndyCar due to a lack of funding.
The Frenchman said that he would expect to race for Chip Ganassi Racing, Team Penske or Andretti Autosport but he is hopeful that he could get a drive with another team.
As for Kevin Magnussen, he wants to follow in his dad’s wheel tracks who was competitive in the NTT IndyCar Series.
Chip Ganassi Racing have four drivers confirmed with Scott Dixon, Marcus Ericsson, Alex Palou and Jimmie Johnson while the it is possible that Tony Kanaan could join the No.48 Carvana Honda crew for ovals only but that part time seat could go to either Magnussen or Grosjean.
Andretti Autosport have five drivers Ryan Hunter-Reay, Alexander Rossi, James Hinchcliffe, Colton Herta and Marco Andretti.
Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing’s Graham Rahal and Takuma Sato are in place for 2021.
Meyer Shank Racing have Jack Harvey on a full-time deal with Helio Castroneves competing in six races next year.
Team Penske have Josef Newgarden, Scott McLaughlin, Will Power and Simon Pagenaud.
Dale Coyne Racing have Santino Ferrucci while Carlin Racing have Max Chilton and Conor Daly sharing the car.
Ed Carpenter Racing have Ed Carpenter and Rinus VeeKay so there could be place there for the Haas drivers.
While AJ Foyt Racing have Sebastian Bourdsis and Charlie Kimball are set to return for next season.
