Aron Einarsson has been dropped by Olsbergs Team Holmqvist following the French V-Prix, just hours after he secured his maiden point in the series.
'Olsbergs Team Holmqvist wish to confirm that they have mutually parted company with Aron Einarsson, effective immediately' a statement from the team confirmed.
'There was a difference of opinion between Aron and the team in regards to many aspects, and this is something that has been ongoing for a while behind the scenes. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Aron for his hard work since we joined the series in 2016 and wish him well in his future endeavours.'
The announcement comes mere hours after the conclusion of the French V-Prix, in which Einarsson secured his maiden point in the series by finishing tenth - something the teams statement neglected to mention.
It is believed a replacement has already been identified and a deal agreed, and this will be announced in due course.
