JOTA has announced that it has retained Antonio Felix da Costa, Roberto Gonzalez and Anthony Davidson for its line-up for the 2021 FIA World Endurance Championship.
Da Costa, Gonzalez and Davidson first teamed up together aboard the #38 JOTA ORECA 07-Gibson during the 2019/20 campaign, when Davidson and Gonzalez jumped ship from DragonSpeed and Da Costa joined after BMW pulled out of the championship.
During the 2019/20 season, the #38 ORECA was one of the front runners in the LMP2 category. The team took victory in Shanghai and four additional podiums en route to second in the standings behind champions United Autosports.
JOTA will field two cars in the LMP2 category for the 2021 campaign, with the team previously confirming the all-new team of Sean Gelael, Stoffel Vandoorne and Tom Blomqvist for its other car.
“Continuity over the seasons is quite rare in endurance racing, so it is great to see Roberto, Anthony and Antonio back together again for the upcoming season with us here at JOTA,” said team co-owner David Clark.
“They all clearly showed that they had flair, consistency, a great team ethic and many other attributes to mount a serious title challenge last time around. These are all traits that JOTA also revel in when we go racing, so each of these guys fits in very well with the whole team.”
“Roberto has really proved to be one of the most impressive genuine silver ranked drivers in the business and he excelled through the support, advice and experience of both Anthony and Antonio.”
“So, we are really looking forward to achieving more great results together throughout the 2021 WEC season.”
