Sébastien Loeb, the big announcement!

After several good performances during the Dakar in recent years, Sébastien Loeb (Prodrive) will aim for final victory in a few days during the 2024 edition, which will be held in Saudi Arabia.

Often well placed, Sébastien Loeb has not yet managed to add a new prestigious line to his list of achievements by winning the Dakar. Although he has been world rally champion nine times in the past, the Frenchman has so far had to be content with being second in this prestigious event three times (in 2017, 2022 and 2023).

A few days before the start of the 2024 edition of the Dakar, which will take place in Saudi Arabia from January 5 to 19, the Prodrive team driver has not hidden his ambition, he who dreams of finally winning during this rally-raid. “The Dakar is still the ultimate race in this championship. For me, it has more importance. At the moment, I have no other big project apart from winning the Dakar. I have made several podiums so far. Two or three second places, a third place, but never a first place,” said the Alsatian in recent days.

“With Al-Attiyah, we will be on equal terms”

“So the goal is to try to fight for that. (…) Nasser Al-Attiyah? He was my main competitor until then, he will be even more so with the same car as me. We will be on equal terms. He’s the guy who has the most experience and is the most formidable on this type of rally. Once we’re in the car, everyone does their own thing. It doesn’t change much that we’re on the same team.”also recognized Loeb, during an interview with The team.

“The state of mind is to try to attack the rally concentrated, trying not to do too much while staying in the rhythm because it has become a bit of a sprint: the cars are solid , co-drivers don’t make many mistakes. You still have to attack. » As a reminder, after Prodrive in 2024, Loeb and Al-Attiyah will be in the same team in 2025, at Dacia. Their duel for victory is sure to be thrilling.
