Could another Formula One driver be making the switch to the FIA World Endurance Championship this year?

Swiss publication Blick reports that Adrian Sutil has been linked to a drive with Nissan, which could see the 32-year-old German join the manufacturer’s new GT-R LM NISMO LMP1 effort.

Sutil, who has been left without a ride in F1 this year following Sauber’s signings of Felipe Nasr and Marcus Ericsson, hasn’t hidden the fact that he could make the switch to sports car racing.

“I can’t say what I’m going to do [in 2015],” Sutil told F1zone.net. “But it is true there are categories other than Formula One.”

Seven of the nine race seats in Nissan’s LMP1 program have already been confirmed, with one full-season seat yet to be announced, as well as one in the team’s third car for Le Mans and Spa.

Nissan is expected to finalize the remainder of its lineup in the next few weeks.
