Brendon Hartley said that he reminded the leadership of the Red Bull when in the middle of summer, Porsche has decided to leave the WEC at the end of season 2017.
The new Zealander was part of the support programme of the Austrian concern since 2006, but did not stay there for long, given the results in the Junior series. Nevertheless, he managed to continue his career in 2015, along with mark Webber became the champion in the WEC.
“When Porsche announced the departure of LMP1, I began to study options for next year, – quotes Hartley F1i. – One of the first people I called was Helmut Marko. I told him that if there’s a chance I’m willing to use it unlike what it was eight years ago. He listened to me, but over the next three to four months we were no longer contacted. So, I must admit, this call last week was for me unexpected.”
