Loeb reflects on his latest victory

Winner of the penultimate round of the season, in Spain, Sébastien Loeb reflected on his latest victory in the post-race press conference.

Here is what he had to say:

Win number 61! You led from the start and after a close battle with Ogier on the opening day you had no real challenge for the lead. Despite a lack of battle did you enjoy the rally in Spain?

“It’s always enjoyable to win, so yes, it was good. It has been nearly my first rally at the end of the season without any pressure. I knew the first day would be difficult with the road cleaning. I tried really hard from the start and made good times on the gravel. We didn’t lose the time we thought we might. Then we came to the tarmac leading the rally and made no mistakes.”

With the championship settled it must have been nice to drive for the win with no pressure…

“I was really motivated when I arrived, I know I can try and I know if I make a mistake, it’s not that bad. It’s really fun to drive like that and the stages were good. I would say it was nice to drive one day on gravel and two on tarmac, maybe not everybody agrees...”

Wales Rally GB will be the last event for the C4, how much does it mean to win that event?

“Like always, like here in Catalunya, it’s a rally I won a lot of times, I was feeling quite confident. In Rally GB it will be more difficult, but for sure we will try. Here was the last tarmac rally with the C4 and I won all the tarmac rallies with the C4 - it was important to do it.”
