Has anyone apart from Hulk been confirmed for 919 #3?
Hulk is in that third Porsche, the two full-season cars have the same driver line-up as this year.
Yeah, I guess the rumor about Alonso was before Hulkenberg was confirmed. Also if Alonso sign for Mclaren I don't think they will let him have a go in a car which is a competitor on the sports-car market.
More importantly this rumour about Alonso driving for Porsche at Le Mans was started due to a single photo of Alonso and Webber together at the Bahrain WEC race earlier this year. Prior to that photo there was no speculation about Alonso driving for Porsche. Thus I personally don't take these "rumours" about Alonso and Le Mans all that seriously until there is some more substance to them. One photo op isn't quite doing it for me.
That's more than what I knew. I heard the rumor from one of the Swedish F1-commentators so I thought there was more to it.
I actually watched that WEC race from Bahrain and there was a lot of commotion when Alonso was in the paddock.
For the record I do believe Alonso definitely has his eyes set on Circuit de La Sarthe at some point in his career. For all I know it COULD be next year with Porsche. All I am saying is that it's a bit too early to jump on the "Omgdz Fernando at LM2015!!!" bandwagon with the "evidence" we have. As of now it's merely media (and fans) drumming up headlines now that the racing season draws to a close.
Well, what already IS confirmed is, that Porsche will field a third car in the 6h of Spa and 24h of Le Mans next year and Nico H?lkenberg will be driving it. His two team mates are not named yet, but German media have been reporting that it is to be manned etirely by F1 drivers.
The 2015 F1 calendar was announced with Korea back and in the May 3rd date, with WEC's Spa on the 2nd of May, so I guess no F1 drivers for Spa at least.
