SÉBASTIEN LOEB, AN 80TH WIN FOR ETERNITY!  🇫🇷 🌎 🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆 🇲🇨  🌎 
The greatest rally driver of all time, if we only look at the prize list and statistics, won the 90th edition of the Monte-Carlo Rally on Sunday, beating by 10 seconds and 5 tenths only, after 17 special stages over 4 days, his arch-rival Sébastien Ogier. His 80th win in WRC, and the 8th triumph in Monaco, where he first competed in 2021, in a small red Citroën Saxo.
Ogier was twice hit by bad luck in the last two stages: first a puncture of his front left tire, in SS16, and then a ten-second penalty for a jump start in SS17, due to a small technical glitch which forced him to release the clutch a little too early.
Loeb did not know he had won when he got out of his Ford Puma at the end of SS17, in the medieval town of Entrevaux, after four days of a fierce and intense fight between the two greatest champions of the modern era of rallying: 9 world titles for Loeb, 8 for Ogier, both having decided to slow down a bit, to start other projects. For Loeb, it was 10 years ago (last full season in 2012) and for Ogier only last month (8th world title in December 2021 at the Monza rally) .
“It’s unbelievable. We didn’t expect so much when we got here,” said Loeb after the podium in Entrevaux. “We were unlucky, but that’s rallying”, Ogier said. He was still leading by 24 seconds at the start of SS16, the one in which he punctured his front-left tire, finishing on the rim and losing 34 seconds in the process. Each had started this rally in a new car of the hybrid era, and with a new teammate, Benjamin Veillas for Ogier, Isabelle Galmiche for Loeb.
This is Loeb’s 80th victory in the WRC, including 79 with Daniel Elena and one with Isabelle Galmiche, a maths teacher who made the most of her weekend in a Ford Puma. She navigated perfectly a very demanding driver, and she was rewarded by climbing on a podium for history, alongside Loeb, Ogier, Veillas and another crew, fully Irish, entered by Ford M-Sport, consisting of Craig Breen and Paul Nagle.
This stunning win is also one for Malcolm Wilson’s M-Sport Ford team, which had almost skipped the 2021 season to better prepare for the arrival of the new technical regulations, in order to fine-tune the settings of this Ford Puma Hybrid. It was objectively the best car of this 1st round of 2022, at the very beginning of the hybrid era in WRC. This car designed in Banbury UK was at the same time the fastest, the most reliable and the easiest to drive, according to all its drivers this week, starting with Loeb and Breen, and adding young Gus Greensmith, 25, who posted his first stage win in WRC, on Friday.
“We have just finished a rally, so we need to celebrate before we decide if there will be others…”, Loeb also said. At almost 48, next February, he has just set a new record: that of the winner on older in fifty seasons of World Rally, a little better than Swede legend Bjorn Waldegard at the Safari in 1990, then aged 46. “For me, it won’t be right away,” Ogier smiled, as he wants to start a new career in endurance, on circuits of this world. “But we will try to set up a date with Seb”, he added, delighted to have experienced “such a great fight since Thursday”, on the roads of Monte-Carlo. Both Sebs are now on equal terms in the Principality: 8 wins each, including Ogier’s win during the IRC era, in 2009, in a Peugeot.
See you gentlemen in 2023 to settle the score, one more time!

SS 13: OGIER 🇫🇷 🌎 WIDENS THE GAP ON LOEB 🇫🇷 🌎 🇲🇨 🌎

SS 13: OGIER  🇫🇷 🌎  WIDENS THE GAP ON LOEB  🇫🇷 🌎
🇲🇨  🌎
SS13: Ogier widens the gap on Loeb 
A gap of over 20 seconds between Ogier and Loeb: the last special stage of this Saturday (SS13, 20 km), the second pass between Saint-Geniez and Thoard, was decided just before the start: “We put on the slicks at the last minute, but Ogier saw it…”, smiled Loeb at the end. “I was going to use my snow tyres, because it was the safest option, but when we saw that Seb was putting on the slick tires, we changed our mind at the last minute and put on the slick tyres as well”, Ogier explained later. And he was right, since he managed to extend his lead over Loeb from 5 to 21.1 seconds in the space of 20kms.
Fans will never know if, by putting on his two studded Pirelli tyres in this SS13, instead of keeping them in the trunk, Loeb could have rocked this rally again, just like Friday morning when he took the lead, at the expense of Ogier, by signing four best times in a row. And now, with four stages to go, “21 seconds is a bit far away”, Loeb admitted before heading back to Monaco for a good night’s rest, after a suspenseful day which did not end as he hoped.
What is certain is that Ogier, on four soft tyres, lost less time -5 seconds- on Rovanperä, who started with two snow tyres, than Loeb -21.1 seconds- on four soft tyres too. Another sure thing is that Rovanperä took advantage of the situation to post his second best time in a row, after SS12, and completed a grand slam by Toyota on Saturday (with 2 stage wins for Ogier and one for Evans). So the Finnish hopeful will start the last morning of the rally, early on Sunday (67kms over four stages), in 4th place, with a chance of a podium because he is only 37 seconds behind Craig Breen, 3rd in his Ford Puma Hybrid.
Further down the standings, Gus Greensmith (Ford Puma), now 5th but 6 minutes 33 seconds back, lost all chances of a podium by showing up 18 minutes late before the start of SS11, after having a puncture and suffering a major mechanical problem in SS10, already losing a bit less than two minutes on the leading quartet in that stage, and then spending a long time trying to repair on the side of the road. Worse still, Thierry Neuville (Hyundai), now 6th and 7 minutes 44 seconds behind Ogier, saw his front right damper pierce through his bonnet and he finished the day in slow motion, to save big points on Sunday in the championship, and possibly to aim for bonus points in the Power Stage.
In WRC2, big favourite is now Norway’sAndreas Mikkelsen, who is now 7th overall without competition from former class leader Frenchman Stéphane Lefebvre (Citroën C3), who disappeared in the morning: sanctioned by a 30-minute time penalty, he then hit the bank at the end of SS10, spinning and losing his right rear wheel. Game over.

SS8: LOEB 🇫🇷 🌎 IN THE LEAD ON FRIDAY EVENING THE PROFF BY 9.9! 🇲🇨 🌎

SS8: LOEB  🇫🇷  🌎 IN THE LEAD ON FRIDAY EVENING THE PROFF BY 9.9!  🇲🇨 🌎
SS8: Loeb in the lead on Friday evening, the proof by 9.9! 
Sébastien Loeb (Ford Puma), in management mode, ended Friday in the lead of the 90th Monte-Carlo Rally, after leaving his mark on a very long day: 4 best times out of 6 and always in the fight for the lead. The 9-time world champion, 79 times winner in WRC, will start the second half of the rally, early Saturday morning, with a 9.9-second gap over Sébastien Ogier (Toyota Yaris), the reigning world champion.
“With the hybrid, it’s good!” Loeb smiled in the cockpit of his Ford Puma, after crossing the finish line of SS8, between Val-de-Chalvagne and Entrevaux. “It’s better!”, was the immediate answer by Isabelle Galmiche, his new co-driver, delighted with her race day, and the very efficient successor, this winter, to the indestructible Daniel Elena.
Having suffered a breakdown of his hybrid system in the previous stage (SS7), Loeb had to leave the honor of a first best time in WRC to his teammate at M-Sport, Gus Greensmith (25). The young man had suffered the same type of breakdown earlier in the day, losing instantly a hundred horsepower, 100% electric.
In this last stage of the day, on a road where humidity had fallen at the same time as the sun had settle down, Ogier had the advantage of passing half an hour before Loeb and he took advantage of it. This was his third best time of the rally, after the two on Thursday evening (SS1, SS2). It enabled him to reduce his gap on Loeb to less than 10 seconds, which leaves the suspense intact for the weekend.
On the provisional podium of this 90th edition, while there are still… 9 stages to run until Sunday, Loeb is 9.9 seconds ahead of Ogier, and 22 seconds ahead of Elfyn Evans, the reigning vice-world champion, in 3rd. Further back, Thierry Neuville (4th) is 47.8 seconds back and Ott Tänak (5th) relegated at almost a minut (56.7 seconds). The two Hyundai drivers being closely followed by two other Ford Pumas, with Craig Breen ahead of Gus Greensmith.
In the WRC2 classification, the suspense is also intact, as Eric Camilli (Citroën C3), leader this morning, crashed in SS5, and because the big favorite, Andreas Mikkelsen (Skoda Fabia) is now 2nd, sandwiched by two Frenchmen in Citroën C3s: provisional leader Stéphane Lefebvre and rising star Yoann Rossel, last year’s champion in WRC3. The three drivers are grouped in 20 seconds, between 11th and 13th place overall.
