Though not a driver of the first rank, Louveau was nevertheless a more than useful performer whose best days were in the immediate post-war years. In 1946 he drove a Maserati 4CL, winning at Lille, where he shared with Sommer, and gaining second places at Forez, Perpignan and Albi. The following year he was second at Lyon and third at Pau with the 'Maser' and also raced a recently purchased Delage with success, taking a second at Perpignan once more, third at Marseilles, fifth in the Jersey Road Race and sixth in the Italian GP.

The Delage was put to good use over the next three seasons, with seconds at Montlhéry and Chimay in 1948, third at Pescara in 1949 and fourth at Rouen in 1950. But the most thrilling of his races in the car must have been the 1949 Le Mans 24-hour race, when Henri was second having driven the Delage at Grand Prix pace over the last couple of hours and just failed to overhaul the sick car of Chinetti, which was touring to the finish.

Having handled Rosier's Talbot in the 1950 Italian GP, Henri planned to race the car regularly in the 1951 season, which began with a series of non-championship events. He began with fourth at Syracuse, crashed at Pau, where he was lucky to escape without injury after the car flipped, eighth at San Remo, sixth at Bordeaux, eleventh in the rain-halted International Trophy, and fourth in the Paris GP at Montlhéry. A week later came the championship race at the fearsome Bremgarten road circuit in Berne. With the track made even more treacherous by the wet conditions, Henri's Talbot skidded off the road, struck a barrier and overturned in a repeat of his Pau crash. This time he was not so fortunate, suffering concussion and a fractured leg, which prompted his retirement from racing.
