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 the auto, I haven't driven a single-seater since 2012, but I like to think that Porsche LMP1 has hopefully prepared me well". "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.

The 20-year-old is a hot property in the sport after becoming the youngest ever race victor, in Spain last year at the age of 18.

"We had some issues with the helmet lifting up and trying to choke me", he said. Really looking forward to getting out on track. I saw him two nights ago, I asked him for all the advice I could manage to get out of him regarding tyres.
