Simply the best the sport has ever seen. Great effort and under pressure to wrap it up at home.

As for our own comedy duo another truly dispicable performance. Save for the cancellation of Bitche 2 the Cumbrian irritation would have been 15mins down at the end!! At times Block was quicker. At times Muller(!) was quicker. At times S2000 drivers - Ostberg, Mikkelsen, Henning, Brynildsen, Ketomaa - were all quicker. At times Turan(!) who stuffed Wilson in a private 307 in Bulgria was quicker. At times Al Qassimi was quicker. Journeyman Villagra(!) was quicker.

Matt doesn't deserve to be in the same country as Loeb let alone on the same stages. And after another pounding Malcolm doesn't deserve the Ford contract. Pathetic both.

as usual , a great drive by seb l. just shows that he was just playing games last time out.
i presume that matt is now switching to a 20 year plan. surely, despite his father, he cannot be considered seriously for a semi-works drive next year?

Loeb is definitely in the same league as the greats of the sport. Problem is he's the only one currently. Anyway, that's not his fault and let's not belittle his achievement because he's been doing the job !

What an emotion it must have been to conquer this title in his hometown. He should have lived a normal life in his worker, lower middle class milieu in Haguenau where he spent his youth and today he's crowned for the 7th time there ! He was almost a yob trailing with his buddies and now he's in the legend of world motorsports. What a life ! Such a great way to close the circle.

Just Brilliant. He's simply the best isnt he? Several years ago Citroen gambled on a young kid with no money who had a serious passion, working and spending every cent he had to get to the start of each rally, that gamble has well and truly paid off. Superb work. He is in a league of his own isnt he? I remember when Makinen won four titles and we were all impressed, I remember when Mcrea won 25 rallies, along with Makinen and we were all impressed, Loeb is now on his 60th win!! For the last two years every event win, and stage win has been a new record.

Now is the chance for Dani to win in Spain. Loeb can lose the concentration after become world champion as in Australia because there is no more motivation to win.

Loeb always the fastest so there is no need for Citroen to use team order except 2009( Spain but without team order also Loeb can win that race and Poland, team junior slow so that Loeb can have better position). Ford start this in 2008 when Duval give his position to Mikko two time that year. Ford also in that year start to slow down to have a better starting position on gravel.
