Sebastien Loeb and Daniel Elena have just claimed victory in Rallye de France and in doing so have collected their ninth World Rally Championship title. It’s a quite an astonishing record, really. Loeb’s win today also wraps up the 2012 constructors’ title for Citroën, their eighth world title.
We’ll be back later today when Citroën updates us with their official post-race update. In the meantime ponder this question: is Loeb the best racer ever, in any discipline?
That’s what Prodrive claimed when they tweeted their congratulations to Loeb: “Well done to Seb Loeb, amazing achievement, which will never be repeated. Arguably now the greatest driver of all time in any discipline.”
