Anthony Davidson says tackling the notorious Spa-Francorchamps - in particular the iconic Eau Rouge bend - is more of a challenge in a modern day LMP1 car than it is in an F1 car.

The defending World Endurance Champion heads to the Belgian venue looking to make more of an impression for Toyota than at the Silverstone opener after the Japanese manufacturer was largely out-paced by its Audi and Porsche rivals.

Competing under the newly rebranded 'Toyota Gazoo Racing' banner, Davidson is looking forward to racing at Spa, particularly for its challenges when experienced in an LMP1 machine.

"I'm looking forward to racing again at Spa as it's a track I enjoy and one where we won last year. Hopefully we will be more competitive there than we were in Silverstone. The weather is always unpredictable at Spa; you never know what's coming and that can definitely affect the results.

"The track itself is really fascinating and driving through Eau Rouge is much more challenging with an LMP1 car than an F1. On a good day it's just about full throttle so it means you are always on the edge through there."
