López will share again Toyota TS050 HYBRID N ° 7 of Toyota GAZOO Racing with english Mike conway and the Japanese Kamui Kobayashi, as in the last two seasons.
"Mike, Kamui and I have one goal: nothing more and nothing less than to win races and the championship, and take our revenge at Le Mans", said Pechito, who along with his teammates was second in 2018 and 2019 behind the other Toyota driven by the Spanish Fernando Alonso, the Swiss Sébastien Buemi and the Japanese Kazuki Nakajima.
“It will be the last season of the TS050 HYBRID and we go into it with mixed feelings. The new regulations for 2020/2021 are very interesting, but the downforce, speed and power of the TS050 HYBRID are surprising. I am sure that one day I will be able to say that I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to drive such a car ", added the Cordovan.
"I am going to enjoy each and every one of the laps and each moment behind the wheel and I intend to have a great time this last season", Lopez promised. Hopefully I can fulfill it ...
