Will Sebastian Loeb make WRC comeback?

Sebastian Loeb says his recent victory at Rally Spain has made a 2019 World Rally Championship return even more desirable.

The nine-time champion made a three-event comeback schedule for Citreon this year, and took a surprise win in Catalunya on the last of those outings.

The deal was considered unlikely to allow him to continue into 2019, and was all but confirmed when the team signed Loeb’s former arch-rival Sebastien Ogier from M-Sport Ford.

The 44 year old suggested that the win definitely made him consider a full time return next year.

“It was a nice feeling to fight again and win, and maybe this does give me more desire to come back next year,” said Loeb.

Continued speculation and indecision has left the Frenchman without a drive next year, after Peugeot terminated their 2019 World Rallycross plans.

“I was sure I would do a full season in World Rallycross, and now I have nothing.”

Fans across the racing world will hope to see Loeb behind the wheel in one series or another.
