Loeb reclaims Rallye Deutschland crown

Novikov's team-mate, Ott Tanak also failed to finish. He had been running fourth until he crashed in the final test on Saturday. Although he rejoined and finished in ninth, he was withdrawn after the event to allow the team to fit replacement parts for the next asphalt rally in France in October.

Martin Prokop was another retiree, going no further than SS3 after his car caught fire, while Paulo Nobre went out in SS9 and Peter van Merksteijn Jr rolled it in SS12.

The WRC now heads to Wales in a few weeks time, with Rally GB running from September 13-16.

I feel like Loeb is so underrated in Motorsport. There is always the talk of Schumacher and Rossi but because WRC doesn't get the coverage his achievements have gone a bit ignored. 8 World Championships in a row with a possible 9th this year makes his a Motorsport legend in my opinion. It was another great win for him this weekend to. They guy has some series skill on the tarmac and well he's not to bad on the other surfaces to.

smiles.. yes, totally underrated. there has been no driver in any form of motorsport, who has dominated like seb, in a sport where reaction time has to be far more rapid than in even f1. and seb also competes competitively in le mans, and gets no mention, whereas any ex f1 driver gets coverage, even if running about 10th! and seb even runs his own lmp team! so is putting his money back into motorsport.
