WRC » Loeb: I'll retire in 2011 – but not due to Ogier


Record-breaking multiple World Rally Champion Sébastien Loeb has all-but admitted that he will retire from competition at the end of 2011 - but he insists it is not out of fear of being regularly beaten by young Citroën team-mate Sébastien Ogier

The state WRC is in is not Loeb/Citroen or even Fords fault.

If it wasn't for them sticking it out these few years there would be no World Rally.

The FIA has neglected the WRC terribly.

It will be a shame when he fnally does retire. It's also a shame he's dominated in the weakest era of the WRC, with little competition, and events that are little more than sprints. Loeb hasn't experienced 'Killer' Kielder in the night, not sure he's finished a Safari, a shame.
Hope he decides to turn to Sportscars.

With newly established Le Mans Continental Cup there is a bright future ahead of him behind the wheel of Peugeot or Oreca (or Pescarolo in case of his return)

I wrote this 10 days ago:

People always think his the greatest driver.To be at number 5 position is not possible without any logical reason. Maybe he already old and don't want to take any risk as a young driver might or maybe he lost the drive to win in Japan. Maybe setting of the car is not good compare to Ogier is also possible. We will never know.
