Tactics, no tactics, dry tarmac, wet tarmac, mud, abrasive gravel, fine gravel, snow, ice - regardless Loeb is the best ever. Darn near won his first ever WRC in a Xsara. And had the measure of Citroen team-mate Colin and Carlos in his first full season.

I agree with the person who said Loeb was from another planet. He really must be an alien. lol.

57 World rally wins, 6 world titles, 23 runner-up positions,86 podium finishes,44% winning ratio(more than any other driver). This guy is the dominator of rallying. :)

Now our beloved Matthew Wilson. 0 World Rally wins, 0 world titles, 0 runner-up places, 0 podium finishes, 0% winning ratio and 0 talent. Impressive stuff I must admit. :) :) :)

One can only agree with such statistics...

And remember he was stripped of his first Monte Carlo win by a terrible mistake of Daniel Elena, and possibly of his first drivers title by team orders, Citroën asking him to secure the manufacturers title rather than risking to lose all while trying to get the drivers title.

Loeb was really at a cornerstone of his career then. If he disobeyed and brought BOTH titles home, he would have been even more of a hero, but if he disobeyed and crashed out of the race losing both, who knows what Citroën would have decided, instead of being forever faithful towards Seb ?

Loeb had his First Monte win stripped because Citroen changed his tyres, when they should'nt have.

Its a pleasure to watch him rally, he's not arrogant about his domination of rallying.
