There are a couple of ex F1 drivers from Germany looking for drives, old F1 drivers can make fast prototype drivers.

I'd expect a fairly aggressive recruitment campaign and some big names in the mix. A crack at a World Championship representing Porsche is a big honour.

If Porsche did want to bring up their guys they would need to farm them out to other LMP teams to gain experience IMO starting now. Similar to what Pug arranged with Vernay. This season has shown the need for heightened racecraft when onboard these machines.
I agree . I would think a good mix is the solution , experiance & youth .

I would love to see Schumacher somehow getting involved with this Porsche LMP1 project. I know it's virtually impossible but would be pretty much eye candy.

My opinion for 2014 Porsche LMP1 lineup:

Bernhard-Dumas-Luhr (former Porsche)
Long (former Penske Porsche) -Lieb (former Penske Porsche)-Holzer
Heidfeld-Duval-Webber (fantasy idea)

Probably because the cars built for the 2014 regs aren't allowed to be run before that?

Well, Michael has raced at Le Mans before too. Almost won overall too. Some think his attitude is "been there, done that." Anyway, I have not watched an F1 race since back when Michael was racing a red car, but it is my understanding that Michael is paid very well to race with F1 rejects where he is now. Why pass up on the money in order to race F1 rejects while being paid much less?

Schumacher has been talking about how he considers Le Mans to be too dangerous, I don't think he'll ever come back.

Can't really say I want him to either...

Im well aware of where he made his name , I was there to witness his exceptional driving , still dont want him in sportscars . He thinks LM is too dangerous ..... arrogant comment coming from him , as I remember him taking out someone , and he did it on purpose . Taking out someone so he could wrap up a championship .....

He is the one thats dangerous , not the track !!!

I agree that not all the current drivers will land up in LMP1, but I am almost sure that the seniority (in rank) of the current drivers will give them the first shot at obtaining a seat.

You are quite correct. Don't get me wrong. Bergmeister is one hell of a driver.

He is a Mercedes man, and I think perhaps Porsche is looking for some younger blood.
