Citroen's Sebastien Loeb put in an impressive performance this week when he joined the Red Bull Racing F1 team for the opening day of its winter test programme at the Circuit de Catalunya in Spain.

Intended as a 'thank-you' by mutual sponsor Red Bull for winning the WRC drivers' title for a record fifth time in succession, Loeb completed 82 laps in total, his best a 1 minute 22.503 seconds, which left him eighth overall on the unofficial timesheets - just two tenths slower than Robert Kubica and quicker than the likes of Nelson Piquet Jr and Adrian Sutil.
