Later today Kevin Magnussen confirmed the news on social media that 2020 will be his last season with the Haas F1 Team. The Dane also said he is still working on his plans for the future.
Citing 'a number of sources', the Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet this week claimed that the country's Kevin Magnussen, and his French teammate Grosjean, have been told that their small American employer will be replacing them for 2021.
"The end of Romain Grosjean's collaboration with the American team was announced by Auto Hebdo and confirmed by RMC Sport," the latter French media source reported late on Wednesday.
Correspondent Lucas Vinois said Grosjean, 34, is linked with a move for 2021 to the all-electric series Formula E or the World Endurance Championship.
"He recently indicated that he is very interested in the Peugeot Hypercar project," he explained. "The (Peugeot) lion will be back in WEC from 2022."
Jean-Michel Desnoues, editor of France's Auto Hebdo, said of Williams' new owner: "Dorilton Capital probably doesn't want to embark on the Formula 1 adventure without the help of Michael Latifi, who is also the father of Nicholas Latifi."
Russell's seat looks set to be filled for 2021 by the strongly Mexican-backed Sergio Perez.
Desnoues continued: "It seems almost impossible that a boy (Russell) with so much potential in the sport will have to leave, but didn't we say the same about Esteban Ocon?"
"So we don't necessarily have to take action this year," Marko added.
