Haas driver Kevin Magnussen has wished former Team Principal Guenther Steiner "all the best" after his shock split from the team.
Steiner's departure was confirmed in a statement from the team on Wednesday [January 10] with owner Gene Haas citing poor results as the reason for the personnel change.
Ayao Komatsu has been promoted from his role as Director of Engineering to take over at the helm of the American-owned outfit as it aims to take steps forward from a disappointing season last term where it finished bottom of the Constructors' standings.
Following the news, Magnussen - who raced under Steiner over two separate stints from 2017 to the latter's departure - has taken to Instagram to post a farewell message.
In the post, the Danish driver wrote: "Thanks, Günther.
"Thanks for taking me on the journey in 2017 and thanks for bringing me on board again in 2022. It has been both fun and tremendously challenging – but never boring.
"So long and all the best."
The post was accompanied by a picture from Magnussen's fairytale pole position at the 2022 São Paulo Grand Prix, the first for both himself and Haas in F1.
