ALL CROSSED UP
Sébastien Loeb’s still got it. That much was evident just days after the SMMT event when he was in with a real shout of victory in the WRX event at Silverstone.
Loeb qualified on the outside of the front row for the six-car final but fluffed his getaway and dropped to fifth position. He recovered to third by the end of the race, which was won by VW Polo driver Johan Kristoffersson.
“I had a really good final run, despite the really bad start,” said Loeb. “There was a lot of grip [on the start line] and I nearly stalled the engine. I took my joker lap at just the right time and that helped me to make up some places. It was a great battle.”
