Sebastien Loeb Wins Rally World Title 7th Time

Sebastien Loeb claimed an extraordinary seventh consecutive world rally championship by winning his home round in Alsace.

Loeb guaranteed overall victory for the seventh straight year with two legs of the season lasting after winning six of the 11 rallies of the 2010 season - he also managed at least a top three finish in ten of those events.

The champion was able to savour his triumph on home soil as he hails from Haguenau, just outside Strasbourg in eastern France near the German border, the Citroen C4 driver leading home a 1-2-3 for the marque ahead of Spaniard Dani Sordo and Norway's Petter Solberg for a 60th career success.

"This is fantastic," said Loeb. "This has been a very inspiring rally. It has been very difficult and I didn't suppose so many people to be here. This is the best result for me to win the championship here in France."

Sordo was delighted with his second place, and congratulated Loeb and his team.
