Will Stevens has turned his eye to Le Mans in the event his F1 career stumbles at the first hurdle.

Funding brought by the 23-year-old’s backers as he made his grand prix debut in Abu Dhabi is believed to have been instrumental in ailing Caterham’s survival to date.

“When I got the offer,” he is quoted by Russia’s f1news.ru, “I jumped at the chance with both hands.

“I had to use it and in the end I didn’t lose much to a great driver like Kamui Kobayashi, although it was the first time I had driven the car and my first formula one weekend,” said Stevens.

“Now I’m doing everything to keep it going,” he added, referring to Caterham’s battle for survival, “but if it doesn’t work out, I am considering the possibility of (racing in) LPM1.”

LMP1 is the premier prototype class at Le Mans and the world endurance championship.
