Seven time World Rally Championship (WRC) champion and presumably the greatest rally driver ever, Sebastien Loeb, has signed a new contract with Citroen to stay in the WRC for another two years until 2013. The 37 year old Frenchman has been in WRC with Citroen since 2002, where he took his first win in Rallye Deutschland on that year. After narrowly finished second in driver standings in 2003, the following seven years has proven that he is the greatest WRC driver ever lived.
Sebastien Loeb, greatest rally legend alive!
Won a massive continuous seven WRC driver titles from 2004-2010 and three Race of Champions titles, Loeb drove only Citroens in WRC, from Xsara WRC, C4 and most recently the DS3 with pure and supreme Godly skills. The former gymnast since young, he took advantage of his gymnastic training to drive like calm water in various surfaces, just like Bruce Lee’s famous quote “be like water”. However in 2011, he was widely speculated in news of his retirement from WRC to try other motorsports, and Volkswagen trying to poach him to drive the new Polo for their new WRC team in 2013.

Rain, sand or snow will not slow him down!
Similarly with Paul Scholes, the English footballer who played his entire football career in Manchester United, Loeb stays loyal with Citroen until his decided to retire from rallying. At the time this piece is written, Loeb has just finished in second on Rallye Deutschland, behind his younger team mate, Sebastien Ogier. Loeb leads the driver standings but currently challenged by his more competent team mate Ogier, hence his driver’s title for 2011 will not be an easy one.

When in doubt, FLAT OUT!
