Porsche will maintain a contractual relationship with Brendon Hartley even after he moves into Formula 1 with Toro Rosso full-time in 2018.
Hartley has been a Porsche LMP1 driver in the World Endurance Championship since 2014, winning the drivers' title on two occasions and scoring an overall win in the Le Mans 24 Hours.
He sought alternative employment when Porsche announced the closure of its LMP1 programme, and after coming close to a Ganassi IndyCar dealended up making a shock F1 debut with Toro Rosso that has led to a full season chance next year.
Asked during Porsche LMP1 team's farewell WEC weekend in Bahrain whether the 2018 Toro Rosso deal affected Hartley's status with Porsche, team principal Andreas Seidl told Autosport: "Not really. Obviously we will put some limitations in terms of what he can do for us, because he will have quite a busy schedule.
