Phil Hanson will return to partner Filipe Albuquerque for the 2022 FIA World Endurance Championship.
Hanson, the reigning WEC LMP2 champion, will contest his fifth consecutive season with the Anglo-American squad.
He first joined the team in 2018 and has since racked up 13 wins out of 42 races. In 2020, he sealed the LMP2 title by winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
“I’m delighted to be remaining with United Autosports for another season of the FIA WEC in 2022,” said Hanson. I’m looking forward to what will be my third season of WEC and fourth consecutive year with a team I feel has become my family in motorsport.”
Hanson and Albuquerque will be part of a two-car effort for the 2022 campaign. Their third driver is yet to be confirmed. 15-year-old Josh Pierson has been lined up for the second car.
“I am delighted we are able to secure the signing of Phil for his fifth season with United Autosports,” said Richard Dean.
“Phil has grown up with us and it has been a privilege to see him develop into the true professional he is today; a Le Mans winner and a multiple championship winning driver.”
“The aim is simple, to be winning races and the WEC championship again in 2022.”
