The Spaniard’s F1 season begins with the first four grands prix in Australia, Bahrain, China and Baku, before he makes his WEC debut at Spa on May 5.

His most intense spell of the year will kick off from the Canadian Grand Prix on June 10, when he will undertake five consecutive weekends of F1 and WEC events, including Le Mans on June 16/17.

At the end of the season, he also faces a mammoth three-weekend travel schedule that takes in the Brazilian Grand Prix, the Shanghai WEC event and then F1’s season finale in Abu Dhabi.
