Kevin Magnussen doesn't want to take a year off after leaving Haas and could therefore switch to in the IndyCar series or other championships. However, his father Jan Magnussen advises him not to just give up his dream of Formula 1 - but his son can still have a look around.

"He will no longer be with Haas in the coming season, but I don't think he's ready to give up the dream of Formula 1," the Dane told Motorsport-Total.com. "It is unlikely that he will have a racing cockpit next year, but there is also 2022, which could be an exciting year thanks to the new rules."

Magnussen said he had had a "great time" with the team and will announce plans for the future "in due course". Grosjean did not give details on his future Team principal Guenther Steiner said: " I want to extend my thanks to both Romain and Kevin for their hard work and commitment to Haas F 1 team

"I don't know if there will be any opportunities for the year, but Kevin has to make sure that there is something or not so that nothing slips through his fingers," said Magnussen.

"I advise Kevin to think about what he wants, what is most important - and then do it," the Dane continues. He knows his son would like to win races again, but it has to be a meaningful series for him too. He therefore advises him above all to look for opportunities in the IndyCar series or the World Endurance Championship (WEC).

"I know he's talking to teams in the IndyCar series," reveals Magnussen. "But he also has to look a bit broader." Magnussen's problem: All good places in the IndyCar series need sponsorship money. "And that is the problem all over the world - and that is why he is in the situation he is in right now." Because Haas also needs drivers with a budget.

A free IndyCar test at Barber Motorsports Park on the Monday after the Imola Formula 1 race is too short for Magnussen, but his father advises him to test such a car at some point and see what he thinks of it - the same applies for the WEC, in which, according to Papa Magnussen, interesting things happen. "If he can join a manufacturer, he should definitely look to it too."

"At the moment, however, he has to concentrate on ending the Formula 1 season in the best possible way and doing some advertising for himself," says Jan Magnussen.
