Feb.1 (GMM) Nick Heidfeld's management on Wednesday confirmed rumours the Formula One veteran will drive a Lola prototype at Le Mans this year.

The 34-year-old contested Grands Prix almost continously for more than a decade, most recently last season, but will have to be content with Sebring, Spa and Le Mans in the new world endurance sports car championship in 2012.

"Since I did Le Mans in 1999 I always knew that I wanted to come back to endurance racing," he said.
