Rallying: Loeb eases to title No 9
Monday 08 October 2012
Sebastien Loeb wrapped up his ninth consecutive World Rally Championship with victory in the Rallye de France yesterday.
Loeb's eighth win in 11 races so far this season sees him wrap up yet another title with two rounds to spare. "It has been a great moment. We had been dreaming of it since the weekend began," he said.
The victory also heralded the end of an era with the Frenchman previously announcing he would not defend his title in 2013.
