For Toyota, in all events that do not clash with an F1 race. AIUI this means he misses only the Fuji round. So he's going to be a busy race driver.

I miss the days when you'd see your favourite F1 driver taking a
weekend to run sedans, or sports cars or even lower formula events,
just for the fun of it.

But I suspect that you couldn't pilot a modern race car while smoking
a cigarette, or while drinking a beer. Not that Clarke or Moss did
either -- to my knowledge -- but some did.

In any case, it's good to see F1 drivers expanding their horizons.

Whilst I appreciate the team clashes, it occurs to me that as Fernando and
Webber are really good mates, it would have been great to have seen them
team up in WSC, or even just for Le Mans.

But definitely good to see FA going for this - and two bites at the cherry
too with both 2018 and 2019 Le Mans in the deal.

It was to top up earnings, not so much for fun.
