From the moment Porsche announced it would leave the World Endurance Championship's LMP1 class at the end of 2017, things were always going to change for Brendon Hartley. And the twists and turns have been plenty.
Since Le Mans 24 Hours and later WEC LMP1 title honours in 2017, he's taken in a surprise Formula 1 debut with Toro Rosso, and then a full year of grand prix racing with the team before being unceremoniously dumped from the Red Bull programme for a second time at the end of 2018.
This year he's been a fresh face at an IMSA team - finishing third at Sebring for Action Express Racing - and two squads in LMP1. First, on the same weekend as his IMSA cameo, he competed for SMP Racing in the WEC round at Sebring, and then he replaced Fernando Alonso in Toyota's LMP1 squad for the 2019-20 season, winning the most recent round at Fuji.
