Loïc Duval (born 12 June 1982 in Chartres, France) is a French racing driver, who competes in the 2020 DMSB Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters Championship with Audi Sport Team Phoenix.[1] A long-term factory driver for Audi across various disciplines, Duval made his DTM debut in 2017, having been moved from the Ingolstadt manufacturer's World Endurance Championship programme.[2]

Duval's maiden DTM campaign saw him run largely at the back of the field, failing to score points at all until he claimed his maiden podium finish at the 2017 Zandvoort Race 2.[3] Only one other points finish would follow for the Frenchman before the end of the season, with 22 points to his name and eighteenth in the Championship.[4]

Duval was retained by Audi and Team Phoenix for 2018, and duly improved his form to become a semi-regular point scorer.[5] He therefore jumped to seventeenth in the Championship with 54 points to his credit, having also claimed his maiden pole position.[6]

Another season would follow for Duval in 2019, which saw the Frenchman once again step-up compared to the previous campaign.[7] As a result, Duval would become a regular point scorer, and moved to seventh in the Championship with 134 points.[8]

Background[]

Duval, like most racing drivers, began his career in karting, culminating in the 2002 French Formula Campus title.[9] He followed this with the 2003 French Formula Renault Championship title in his debut season, before entering the Formula Three Euro Series the following year.[9] 2004 also saw Duval test for the Renault F1 Team in a one-off drive, before a second season in the Euro Series in 2005.[9]

A move to Japan followed in 2006, entering Formula Nippon and Super GT for the season.[9] He combined these duties with appearances in the A1 GP Series for Team France, ultimately taking the 2009 Formula Nippon title.[9] A return to Europe a year later paved the way for Duval to take his greatest victory.[9]

Legendary Le Mans: 2011 - 2014[]

Duval was drafted into the Audi Sport Le Mans programme in mid-2011, combining his duties in Super GT alongside his drive in the Le Mans Series.[9] After a fifth place overall in the Le Mans Series that season, Duval committed full time to Audi's programme, taking the FIA World Endurance Championship for them in 2012.[9] This was followed by an infamous victory in the 2013 24 Hours of Le Mans, an event in which he had been competing since 2008.[9]

2014 saw Duval struggle in the WEC, combined with a huge accident at Le Mans in practice.[10] Duval walked away uninjured, but was shaken by the accident.[10] He ended the season seventh overall, while also taking fourth in Formula Nippon.[9]

Electrification Exceptions: 2015 - 2017[]

Duval signed up to join the FIA Formula E Championship midway through the inaugural 2014-15 season, taking a seat at Dragon Racing.[11] The Frenchman impressed to secure two podium finishes before the end of the campaign, earning himself a return for the second FE season.[12] Eighth in the Championship followed for Duval, earning him a third campaign, although with a collapse in form for the Dragon squad the Frenchman would slump to fifteenth.[13]

With that, Duval was dropped from FE at the end of the 2016/17 season.

DTM History[]

Duval was signed up to Audi Sport Team Phoenix ahead of the 2017 DMSB Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters Championship, replacing series veteran Timo Scheider whom had retired at the end of the previous campaign.[2]
