JOTA resigns Davidson, Da Costa and Gonzales for 2021 LMP2 campaign
British LMP2 team JOTA will retain its driver line-up in the No. 38 ORECA Gibson LMP2 car for FIA WEC Season 9.
Anthony Davidson, Antonio Felix da Costa and Roberto Gonzalez will stay on for a second campaign following a hugely successful first season together, which saw the trio claim a victory at Shanghai and second overall in the LMP2 Teams’ Championship.
Today’s news follows hot on the heels of JOTA’s announcement last week which confirmed Stoffel Vandoorne, Tom Blomqvist and Sean Gelael will race in the team’s sister No.28 car.
Davidson, Da Costa and Gonzalez will once again compete with Goodyear tyres but with an all-new vibrant livery, which will be revealed shortly.
Anthony Davidson commented: “I can’t wait to get back on track this year with JOTA and to build on what we achieved last season as a team and as a car crew. We managed to set the bar pretty high last year, but I have full confidence we can not only continue that but also go on to achieve even greater things in 2021.”
Antonio Felix da Costa added: “I’m super happy to be back in the WEC with JOTA and racing with Roberto and Anthony once again. I am a big fan of continuity, and we will be able to carry the momentum we gained last season to have another crack at winning the FIA WEC and also Le Mans. I can’t wait to get started and go racing in Sebring.”
