Magnussen already had a contract for next year. "Experience, and the need for it, has been one of the cornerstones of Haas F1 Team," said principal Guenther Steiner in a statement at the Singapore Grand Prix. "And with Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen racing for the team in 2020, we continue to have a driver lineup that offers us a solid platform to continue our growth." The decision closes a door for German driver Nico Hulkenberg, who is leaving Renault at the end of the year and looking for another seat, with Haas seen as a potential destination.
