Former Formula 1 driver Kevin Magnussen will race for Peugeot in the World Endurance Championship and the Le Mans 24 Hours in 2022, the French manufacturer said on Monday.

The Dane lost his F1 seat at US-owned Haas team at the end of last season along with Frenchman Romain Grosjean, who has switched to IndyCar.

Magnussen joins ex-F1 racers Paul di Resta and Jean-Eric Vergne among six main factory drivers named by Peugeot for their endurance comeback with a hypercar prototype.

The others are Le Mans winner Loic Duval, Denmark’s Mikkel Jensen and American Gustavo Menezes, with Britain’s James Rossiter as reserve.
