Porsche has revealed its full driver line-ups for its two-car GTE Pro assault in the 2021 Le Mans 24 Hours.
Frederic Makowiecki will continue to partner Gianmaria Bruni and Richard Lietz in the #91 Porsche 911 RSR-19, while the regulars in the #92 car, Neel Jani and Kevin Estre, are joined by former factory driver Michael Christensen.
Both Makowiecki and Christensen will also race in the second round of the World Endurance Championship season at Portimao that will be run over eight hours on the June weekend originally occupied by Le Mans - which has been pushed back to August.
"It’s great that I can share driving duties in the number 91 car at Le Mans with Gimmi and Richie for the fourth year in a row," said Makowiecki, who will be embarking on his eighth consecutive appearance at La Sarthe with Porsche.
"We’re a very well-oiled threesome and we’ve always done well at our races. Unfortunately, it’s never been quite enough for us to win our class at Le Mans yet, but that should change this year.
"We’ll tackle the WEC race in Portugal with the aim of refining the interaction with our new race engineer John McGregor.
"There’s not a lot of time to work on some aspects during the Le Mans week, so we’ll do that in Portimao. That puts us in a good starting position."
