Hartley confirmed for another season with Porsche 919 LMP1

Porsche has confirmed its LMP1 driver lineup for the 2015 FIA World Endurance Championship season, opting to remain with all six of its current full-season pilots for next year’s program with the all-new Porsche 919 Hybrid.

Despite rumors of at least one high-profile Formula One driver potentially jumping ship, the German manufacturer will have stability in its full-season lineup, with Timo Bernhard, Romain Dumas, Neel Jani, Brendon Hartley, Marc Lieb and Mark Webber all returning next year.

No word has been given on the potential of a third car for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, which is known to be under consideration, and one of the primary reasons for Porsche recently testing the majority of its factory GT drivers in its LMP1 car.
