much though i admire seb for his skills, and praise him for his good f1 test, i dont think that any team would take him on, due to his age and lack of hunger. but his profile could attract sponsors. maybe if teams had to run a third car, then he would be in with a shout. i think that he would be better suited to endurance racing,where he has had some success

rich ard - I doubt he lacks hunger, there'd probably not be anyone more motivated to show off than him. He'd drive his socks off. And as for age, well who cares! Prost, Hill, Mansell, Schumacher all won races and even championships older. And although i dunno i he'd win, a podium would be enough to prove just how versatile he is.

This guy can drive a car! No doubt about it. Question is, who takes him on? Does he get a decent car. I would like to see him have a go. I would have liked to see the great "46" have a go as well

You need to look into the story a bit more. Was Loeb asked a hypothetical question or is he looking actively for a seat in F1?

I think he was probably asked a hypothetical question to which he replied as above and now this story emerges.

I don't think he'll go to F1, more likely closed wheel endurance racing.

sorry to above posters, hunger is probably the wrong word. i have always said that seb should get a F1 chance, but he does not say that f1 is his ultimate aim, whereas younger drivers are more ruthless and singleminded. tippex has said it for me. i could see endurance racing as more his forte. it is highly unlikely he would be offered the prime seat in any team,or even a number two. if there was a number three, yes, for the publicity and kudos. i have always said that seb is one of the greatest drivers, better than current F1 lot, but gets little or no recognition for his outstanding skills, but formula 1, realistically , no chance! PITY, but true

Agree with brendan... I would have never known he was 34...

As for him joining the F1 circus, we all seem to forget that the guy can drive quick, but has NO experience of passing people and racing... The only overtaking he's done have been on cars that were broken and therefore had lost the 2 minutes (or is it 1) gap they started the SS with.

I'm not saying he couldnt - actually, as a Frenchman, I would LOVE to see that - but it wouldn't be a walk in the park!
