Following weeks of speculation, Porsche has confirmed the driver combinations for its two new 919 hybrid LMP1 cars that will compete in this year’s FIA World Endurance Championship.

As previously announced, longtime factory drivers Timo Bernhard and Romain Dumas will be split between the two entries.

Formula One veteran Mark Webber and rising star Brendon Hartley will join Bernhard in the No. 20 car, with Dumas to share the wheel of the No. 14 Porsche with Neel Jani and Marc Lieb.

All six drivers were on hand in Weissach today for seat fittings, ahead of expected further testing prior to the official FIA WEC Prologue test at Paul Ricard on March 28-29.

The German manufacturer will officially unveil its LMP1 program on Tuesday at the Geneva Motor Show, including the car’s final livery.
