The all-Danish trio will be forced to skip the Chinese event following a decision by the Young Driver squad, which operates the car on behalf of the British manufacturer.

“Young Driver AMR and their sponsors have chosen not to race in Shanghai this weekend," said AMR team principal John Gaw in a team statement.

The only other change among the team's GTE-Pro line-up is Richie Stanaway returning to the #99 line-up alongside Fernando Rees and Alex MacDowall, having missed the previous WEC round at Fuji owing to clashing GP2 commitments in Russia.

The drivers of AMR's two GTE-Am class cars, meanwhile, remain unchanged from Fuji.
