Loeb eases to stylish sixth straight Spanish success

“We've got to try and win there,” added Hirvonen of Rally GB, an event on which he triumphed three years ago. “This year hasn't always gone the way we wanted it to, so a win in Britain would be the best way to end it.”

Behind the Finnish duo, Matthew Wilson came in sixth ahead of Khalid Al Qassimi, Henning Solberg, Ken Block – with the American thereby picking up the first points of his WRC career on his ninth start – and the out-of-luck Ogier, who nonetheless achieved one small victory by claiming the final point in tenth.

@ Chris: How can you say that Loeb was prepared to give Sordo the victory? Loeb had nothing to lose by going for it to ensure he had a clean sweep of wins for the C4 on tarmac. Granted Sordo did disappoint on the gravel test and doesn't deserve a full season next year, but perhaps a partial one on all tarmac rallies

@whodunnit. I have a feeling it is going to be another boring year next year for all us wrc fans. Citroen will dominate both championships, here's why: even if the ford citroen and mini cars are identical, for argument's sake, citroen will still win as they have marginally better drivers who are seriously quick and will make very few errors. Citroen know how to make a car that's quick out of the box and reliable - the c4 wrc. YAAAAAAAAWWN.
