Haas looks set to keep same drivers

Esteban Gutierrez says his future is secure.

Actually, Haas' team boss says it is leaving the driver question open for now, so when asked about 2017, Romain Grosjean smiled: "Ask Gunther (Steiner)!"

But the Frenchman dropped a big hint that he sees Haas as a long-term project, even though he admits there had been some talks with Ferrari.

"When I signed the contract with Haas, the idea was to start in 2017, improve in 2017 and succeed in 2018," said Grosjean.

As for his teammate Gutierrez, the Mexican has struggled to shine through this year but he seems confident about 2017.

"I know what I am doing next year," he announced in Hungary.

"I know that not everything has gone in my favour this season, but I'm not worried."

Asked specifically if he will be driving for Haas in 2017, Gutierrez added: "I'm sorry, but I can't go into details."
