Kevin Magnussen is confident his move to Haas will be beneficial.
The Dane raced for McLaren in 2014 before being forced onto the sidelines in 2015. He moved to Renault last year as a last-minute replacement for Pastor Maldonado but moved on after just one difficult season.
"Haas is a completely different team than both McLaren and Renault," he told the Danish newspaper BT. "And it fits much better for me.
"I feel like I've been unlucky in formula one to hit two teams that were having a bit of a mess with their leadership," Magnussen explained.
"But Haas is a much cleaner management structure. Gunther Steiner runs the team and Gene Haas is the owner, but they're both real racers who are in formula one because they love the sport, not because they want a profile or to make a lot of money.
"That suits me really well, because I'm exactly the same type," he added.
Magnussen is also pleased that he will have to do less sponsor work at Haas.
"Haas is much less dependent on sponsors than Renault, and I'm super happy about that," he said.
"Promotional work can take your focus away from racing, and it also takes time that otherwise could be spent on training.
"Motor sport has unfortunately become a sport in which the driver's physical fitness and wellbeing are not considered particularly highly - it is just assumed that we are in very good shape.
"But how do we get in top condition if there is not enough time to train?"
"It will be necessary," he said, "because there are many indications that the 2017 cars will be the fastest in Formula One history."
