The CANAL + SPORT channel will broadcast an interesting report on women’s motorsport this Friday, December 24, 2021, at 2.20 p.m. A world apart in a world of men where the fairer sex is gradually finding its place. A dive into a female team orchestrated by Margot Laffite.
Margot La ﬃ te, daughter of Formula 1 driver Jacques La ﬃ te, unwittingly grew up in motorsport. Between determinism and determination, and despite all its qualities, making your place as a pilot is not an option, the world of motorsport remaining, in the common imagination, a male territory.
20 years later, she has not become a professional driver but has established herself as a key figure in the world of Formula 1. As a journalist, she has the privilege of being at the forefront of a revolution in progress. What seemed inaccessible yesterday, appears inevitable today, the emergence of a new generation which is sweeping away the question of gender.
The documentary UNE PILOTE tackles, without detours, the journey of a 100% female crew engaged in the most legendary race in the world, the 24 hours of Le Mans. Since 1923 only 25 female crews have taken part out of a total of 4,298. From physical and psychological preparation, to the starting grid, Margot La ﬃ te goes to meet the actors of this change.
