Stoffel Vandoorne will race for Peugeot starting in the 2024 World Endurance Championship season. He will start as an official driver at the first WEC race which takes place in Qatar on March 2nd. Vandoorne was called up in Fuji to substitute for Nico Muller after the Swiss injured his collarbone.
A quote from Jean-Marc Finot - Senior VP Stellantis Motorsport says, “We are proud to name Stoffel Vandoorne as Team Peugeot TotalEnergies official driver. As he showed in Fuji, his team spirit, his performance, and his consistency are in line with the ones of his teammates. Of course, we already know Stoffel very well, as driver for DS Penske in Formula E; he is part of the Stellantis Motorport drivers’ family. His ability to adapt and to get into rhythm right away shows that both series are complementary, the FIA WEC and FIA Formula E and the advantage of having drivers that participate in both championships.”
Following the announcement of Vandoorne joining, Current Peugeot driver Gustavo Menezes announces that he will be departing Peugeot at the end of the season, after having a “3 year journey” with the team.
