Hanson to stay in WEC for 2022 with United Autosports
United Autosports has confirmed that British driver Phil Hanson will return to the team for the 2022 FIA World Endurance Championship.
Hanson, who is the reigning LMP2 FIA WEC champion, will return to United Autosports for his fifth season, having first joined the team in 2018 when he was 18 years old.
Since then, Hanson has entered 42 races with United, scoring 13 wins and 26 podiums, with the last 19 podiums coming in the previous 22 races.
The news follows on from the recent announcement that Filipe Albuquerque will also remain at the British squad for 2022. Both Hanson and Albuquerque will race in the same car next season. Their teammate, who will race alongside them, is still to be confirmed.
United Autosports will be entering two Oreca 07 LMP2 cars into next year’s WEC after confirming that 15-year-old Josh Pierson will also join their WEC team for 2022.
