Nyck de Vries will drive for Toyota in the 2024 World Endurance Championship (WEC) alongside Kamui Kobayashi and Mike Conway. It’ll be his first WEC campaign since he competed with Racing Team Nederland LMP2 in the 2019/20 season.
De Vries, reserve driver for Toyota from 2020-2022, will drive the #7 Hypercar for what has become one of the WEC’s top teams competing against the likes of BMW, Porsche and Ferrari. He’ll also compete in next season’s Formula E for Mahindra Racing.
The Dutchman’s spell in F1 ended after a series of poor results for AlphaTauri saw him replaced with Australian – and fans’ favourite – Daniel Ricciardo.
De Vries said: “I am super excited to be returning to endurance racing, especially with Toyota Gazoo Racing. Endurance racing is something that I have always enjoyed, and it is a discipline with incredible momentum at the moment. I was with the team in a different role for a few years but never got the chance to race, so it is great that the time has now arrived, and I want to thank the team for their continuous support and faith in me.”
