Please allow me to be silly for a moment. Sebastien Loeb crashed on purpose, to avoid facing the reporters, team members, fans and spectators at the end of the very last stage of his WRC career. Because even the poker face Sebastien would probably tear up and succumb to emotions at the site of the thousands of people, gathered around the finish for a final cheer. He wants to remain true to his “naaah” image.
But fans, spectators and reporters will find you, Seb! And they’ll cry you a river, because this is one of the most emotive goodbyes in recent history of motor sports.
