Why F1-snubbed Davidson has no regrets in retirement

By:

He may not have won the Le Mans 24 Hours - falling agonisingly short in 2016 - and didn't get the opportunities in Formula 1 his talents merited. But after calling time on his professional career last month, Anthony Davidson says his pride in his performances with Peugeot and Toyota in LMP1 mean more than the results he achieved

A love affair started at Paul Ricard late in 2008. Anthony Davidson got behind the wheel of a prototype for the first time, Peugeot's 908 HDi turbodiesel LMP1, and was smitten. The love turned out to be unrequited, at least initially.

But when it was belatedly returned, the Brit kicked on with a sportscar career that earned him the right to call himself a world champion. That's not to forget a total of 14 big wins, the Sebring 12 Hours included, across multiple series during eight seasons with Peugeot and then Toyota.
