Hartley has not driven an open-wheel vehicle since 2012 but has been drafted in to replace Pierre Gasly as the Frenchman attempts to win the Super Formula title in Japan.

Hartley won the prestigious Le Mans 24 Hours alongside countryman Earl Bamber with Porsche this year and was a world endurance champion with the team in 2015.

"I'm not very prepared for this weekend, I haven't driven a single seater since 2012, but I like to think the Porsche was hopefully prepared me well". "I like to think I'm ready now", he said.

Having been part of the Red Bull young driver program during his junior career and still a Red Bull athlete, Hartley says he made sure Red Bull was aware of his availability when it was clear he would be out of a drive in WEC beyond this season. On the other hand, the long-run looks quite positive and I did a good job managing the tires there - the biggest thing I need to work on now is the new tire pace, and I'll get another crack at it tomorrow morning before qualifying.
