Hartley 'definitely interested' in future Porsche role

Former Toro Rosso driver Brendon Hartley says that he would be "definitely interested" in having a role in the Porsche Formula E programme going forward.

Porsche will enter FE full-time for the 2019-20 season, and has already confirmed that Neel Jani will take up one of its seats.

It is believed that Hartley, who competed four seasons with Porsche in the World Endurance Championship, is a front runner for the second drive.

The Kiwi recently tested with the German manufacturer alongside Jani as it prepares for its upcoming FE entry. Although Hartley knows he can't influence the decision, he says he would be keen on taking up a seat.

"I actually felt right at home immediately back with the Porsche shirt on and a lot of familiar faces from my time at Porsche and LMP1," Hartley said.

"There's been a lot of crossover from personnel, including myself and Neel, to this development phase, which is definitely helpful.

"Although Porsche is starting from zero in Formula E, there is obviously some experience behind from our time in LMP1 together.

"It's not really for me to answer," he said when asked by Autosport if he was interested in a more involved role.

"Honestly, all I'm focused on at the moment is doing my job here at the racetrack, back on the simulator, giving good feedback, trying to get the most out of the car, trying to help get the most out of the systems and the development going forward.

"Ultimately it won't be my decision, but I'm definitely interested to be involved, yes."
