THE FAST FRENCHMAN

Loïc Duval is one of his country’s fastest drivers. When the Frenchman won the 24 Hours of Le Mans with Audi for the first time in 2013, many observers agreed: his victory was overdue. In 2017, the former endurance racer lined up for the first time in the DTM under the banner of the four rings, which saw him score a podium finish at Zandvoort in his first season and a pole position at Misano one year later. He is known as a driver of extreme pace. He has perfected his driving style over many years as a sports car driver and at the same time as a single-seater racing driver in Japan. His driving style may be extreme, but outside of the cockpit the family-man is entirely mild-mannered. With his sons and wife Gaëlle, the Audi driver maintains a family lifestyle in Switzerland. In addition to motor racing, football is one of the Frenchman’s passions. Be it during official PR commitments, matches of celebrity teams or in his personal surroundings – Duval is an avid football player and has been a supporter of Audi’s partner FC Bayern München since his childhood days.
