Earlier, it emerged that the former Toro Rosso driver - who has been signed by Red Bull Racing as its official reserve driver for this season - wanted to add the fabled 24 hour Le Mans race to his 2012 programme.

"His wish will come true this summer," said the report.

On Wednesday, Toyota announced that former F1 drivers Alex Wurz and Kazuki Nakajima will front the lineup for one Toyota prototype at Le Mans.

"Discussions are still ongoing to finalise the driver lineup for the other (car)," said a spokesman.
