Stephane Sarrazin hopes it's 14th time lucky at Le Mans 24 Hours after finishing runner-up on three separate occasions in the LMP1 class.

The Toyota driver is set to contest his 14th Le Mans 24 Hours race and his fourth with the Japanese manufacturer but is yet to taste victory at the blue riband event. This year Sarrazin says his only goal is to end the prestigious endurance race on the top step of the rostrum.

The Frenchman is a firm favourite with the home fans and says Le Mans holds a special place in his heart.

"Le Mans is an incredible, legendary race, the highlight of the year for me," Sarrazin said. "The atmosphere and fans are amazing. When I am on the grid before the start of the race, with all the spectators in the grandstands, some of them shouting my name, and the French flags flying, this is a very special feeling."

In 2013 Sarrazin narrowly missed out on victory for Toyota while co-driving with Anthony Davidson and Sebastien Buemi and suffered an unlucky 13th Le Mans after failing to finish in 2014.

This year the 39-year-old partners up with Mike Conway and Alex Wurz in the #2 Toyota TS040 Hybrid and says he'll give it his all to claim the chequered flag for the first time.

"Winning Le Mans has always been my goal and my wish is that 2015 can be the year," he said. "Everyone is pushing to the maximum and we will give everything, then we see what Le Mans will bring for us."

Ahead of Le Mans Sarrazin will take a trip to Moscow for round nine of the inaugural Formula E championship, where he competes for the Venturi Grand Prix team.
