Oliver Jarvis hoping to stay in WEC

Oliver Jarvis is keen to stay in the World Endurance Championship, despite Audi's impending exit.

The Brit has raced for the manufacturer in the WEC full-time since last year, and DTM before then, but is currently evaluating his options.

"It's hugely narrowed my options to stay racing with Audi next year, as there's not much now that can be offered to me," Jarvis told Autosport. "There might be a GT racing deal somewhere, but DTM is full and there are cuts across the board."

Jarvis insists he'd like to remain with Audi, but he says he may have to look elsewhere to guarantee his future.

"My contract is up, and it now comes down to sitting down and looking at my options and what suits me, but in truth I want to stay in the WEC," he said. "I have fought for so long to get to the top of the WEC, and I love the championship."

"It's home to the best drivers and cars out there, so naturally I want to stay racing here and at Le Mans," the former Macau Grand Prix winner added. "I've had nine amazing years at Audi, and I've felt privileged to be part of the family for every one."

"But if I have to look elsewhere to continue my career then I will."
