Paul Belmondo was the guest this Wednesday March 19 of "C à vous" alongside David Hallyday on the occasion of the eponymous documentary he produced on the singer.

The 59-year-old man, known for his surname, is a director and producer but also and above all a racing driver.

This passion for the sport comes a long way since he learned to drive alongside his father at just ten years old aboard a mini-moke.

As a good instructor, Jean-Paul Belmondo closely followed his son's racing career.

Patrick Cohen even goes so far as to say “with pride and excitement”.

At the same time, archival footage – showing his first F3 grand prix victory at Albi in 1985 – is released.

in a new light.

“He was afraid for me”

Very very happy, and very moved because this year is his first victory

,” he begins while removing his sunglasses and combing his hair.

“I admit that for the nerves it is very hard.

I think it was as hard for me as it was for him.

Me who usually when I do things I never have cotton legs, well there I had them all the race.

Once the viewing is over, the columnist cannot resist the urge to raise the tears of Paul Belmondo.

Beyond the memory of seeing himself at that age winning his first competition, he also explains that he was moved to see his father.

“It was an important moment for me and it was also very important that my father was there.

And I was able to do it in front of him so he could see my success that day.

[...] It is touching to see that he was afraid for me

, details the French racing driver.

And this fear was far from unjustified.

"That circuit, in 1983, I had a very serious accident and he came to see me in the hospital so I think that's the reason why his legs were in cotton."
