a documentary in the privacy of the legend of the rally
Sébastien Loeb returns to the screens but, this time, to reveal part of his intimacy. This unpublished documentary, entitled “Sébastien Loeb: eternal pilot”, will be broadcast Sunday evening on Canal +. The man with nine WRC titles was awarded in “Europe 1 Sport”.
Open heart. Sébastien Loeb, the rally driver with nine WRC world titles, signs his return to the front of the stage with a new documentary entitled “Sébastien Loeb: eternal pilot” directed by Romain de L’Écotais and Damien Miloch. It will be broadcast Sunday evening on Canal +. Guest on the show Europe 1 Sports (every evening from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. live on Europe 1), the 49-year-old Frenchman accepted the cameras in his privacy for an entire year, between 2021 and 2022.
Usually very discreet about his personal life, this documentary was for Sébastien Loeb the opportunity to have “a beautiful memory for his daughter” Valentine. “I thought it could be nice for everyone and to have a memory a little later. And it’s true that the result is rather pleasant”, he enthused at the microphone of Céline Géraud.
The teams of the encrypted channel followed the former world rally champion at home, in his family cocoon, but also during his races. Because although the Alsatian is retired, he returned punctually behind the wheel of a car last season. Sébastien Loeb had participated in four rallies in 2022 with the M-Sport team, notably postponing Monte-Carlo at the start of the season.
“I took a pseudo retirement”, admitted Sébastien Loeb in Europe 1 Sports. “When you love, it’s hard to stop,” he justified himself, sketching a smirk. Since his retirement as a pilot, announced at the end of 2012, the native of Haguenau has “discovered other disciplines” like the Dakar. For the moment, Sébastien Loeb has no other scheduled dates to come. But one thing is certain, the former WRC champion is a man of challenge. He will not hesitate to take on new challenges.
