That's the likely conclusion - one PSA group brand exits a world championship, another joins one. I hope Peugeot make a better fist of WEC than Citroen have of their most recent WRC foray - the C3 has been a terrible car.

kurski should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Jean-Eric Vergne and Antonio Felix Da Costa have both expressed interest in becoming part of Peugeot’s Hypercar lineup when it debuts in the 2022-23 FIA World Endurance Championship season.

I wonder if Jose Maria Lopez will still be with Toyota or if he'll move to his old PSA group team? Toyota has an upcoming star Japanese driver in lmp2 right now by the name of Kenta Yamashita. I think he'll replace one of Toyota's drivers. My guesses right now are Buemi (Nissan's leading F-E driver) or Lopez.

I would be surprised if Joest teamed up with Peugeot. I am thinking it is more likely that one of VAG's super car brands will show up with something:
- Bugatti
- Bentley
- Audi
- Lamborghini
- Porsche

Oreca probably already lined up to run a car, that's what I think. And by Oreca, I am thinking Rebellion in the same way that Oreca had a 4th one in addition to the 3 factory 908's.

I wonder, with several years to go before the start of the programme if any drivers will start manoeuvring themselves into position for a race seat. I.e. looking to get into P2 / privateer P1

I imagine AMR will target a different set of drivers

As far as AMR goes, I don't think that they'll move many current GT drivers to the LMP1 program. Especially as the GTE-Pro program is supposed to run concurrent to the LMP1 program.

For Peugeot, they do have a while to say the least. Certainly plenty of time to pruse the driver market from their own driver alliances and others who are up and coming pros looking at a LMP1 drive. Same also applies for AMR right now, too, though with much less time.

I'm sure they can find enough decent drivers to help develop the programme. It's important to be in a top manufacturer car if they are to have a chance of winning every weekend, so it shouldn't be too hard to find drivers willing to help them
