Porsche seeks to pilot. Unless last-minute surprises, the European grand prix of F1 in Baku and the 24 Hours of Le Mans will match in the same weekend. The German Nico Hülkenberg will have to give up to defend title in La Sarthe and the German mark will be to find a replacement of guarantees. In this line, and although there are still hopes for a change in the final decision, the brand has begun to move. Proof of this is the test that will be Juan Pablo Montoya in Bahrain, or the announcement made yesterday. Kevin Magnussen will test the Porsche 919 Hybrid.
McLaren decided not to have the Danish and the doors of the Lotus and Haas F1 are closed. Kevin Magnussen must seek new horizons and it seems that the World of Resistance could be the way to go. For the moment, Magnussen will take the Porsche LMP1 at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya between days 10 and 11 November in a test for young riders, organized by Porsche. A test that has been confirmed after filtered by a recent visit from Kevin Magnussen to the facilities of Porsche Motorsport, presumably to become the seat of the 919 Hybrid and have a session on the simulator.
in Addition to Kevin Magnussen, another two young riders will be at the wheel of the LMP1 German in Montmeló. Mitch Evans and Oliver Turvey. The test of the first of them responds to the tests of young pilots that the promoters of the WEC has organized with the three brands present in the category queen of the World of Resistance. For his part, Oliver Turvey will have the option to jump on the 919 Hybrid is the result of the experience that accumulates in resistance. The british driver competing in Formula E, but Turvey, the 24 hours of Le Mans 2014 LMP2.
