Romain Grosjean, who has driven for the Haas F1 Team for four seasons, is in 17th (out of 20) in the Formula 1 drivers’ standings. He has had just one top-10 finish in the last 13 races.

Haas F1 Team boss Guenther Steiner says that owner Gene Haas is weighing his team’s commitment to Formula 1 beyond 2020.
The American team has had a dismal 2019 season — the team is ninth in the Formula 1 Constructor’s Championship standings after finishing fifth in 2018 — and Steiner says that Haas is contemplating the future.

“First of all, no one is sure that they will be here in 2021, because no contracts have been signed,” Steiner said in Brazil, referring to the expiring Concorde Agreement. “It does not depend on me what we will do in 2021, but anyway we cannot stop development. We must continue as though we will continue to be in F1.”
Haas is wrapping up its fourth season in the sport and has yet to earn even one podium finish.
As for Gene Haas and his decision on whether or not to commit to the sport beyond 2020, Steiner added, “There has been no progress for a couple of weeks, but I hope that there will be news next week. He must understand what he wants to do, so we wait patiently for that.
“It’s a serious decision for him and I understand that he needs time to weigh everything up properly.”
