Lewis Hamilton’s Extreme E team hires Sebastien Loeb and Cristina Gutierrez

Nine-time world rally champion Sebastien Loeb will drive for Lewis Hamilton’s Extreme E team during its inaugural season in 2021. Hamilton’s X44 team will also field Spaniard Cristina Gutierrez for the climate-aware off-road series. “Cristina is an upcoming talent with a great future, and Sebastien is a driver I have admired for so many years,” said Hamilton. Loeb, who is world rallying’s most successful driver, said: “I am really impressed by what Lewis is doing in Formula 1, so to be able to work with him on this is an honour.”. They are both incredible drivers and I’m looking forward to seeing what they’re going to do out there,” said Hamilton – who will not race himself, but will “help guide a dedicated team”.
