After finishing third place in the second to the last round of the World Rally Championship in Japan, Sebastien Loeb enters WRC history by clinching his fifth consecutive FIA championship. Loeb and his co-driver Daneil Elena now hold a new record as it passes the previous one held by Juha Kankkuen and Tommi Makinen.

Citroen's Sebastien Loeb staked his claim to a place in rallying's record books this weekend by clinching an unprecedented fifth consecutive FIA World Rally Championship.

With a final race to go in three weeks at Wales Rally GB, Loeb plans to go flat out to secure the manufacturer's titles for his team Citroen.

"It's a fantastic feeling," said Loeb. "I really wanted to wrap up the title in Japan to enable us to go into Wales Rally GB with a totally free mind. That made the weekend very long and frustrating. The title just seemed to loom larger after every stage, but it was well worth the wait in the end."

Loeb and Elena have dominated world rallying since 2004, initially with the Citroen Xsara and, more recently, with the C4. The pair has scored ten wins so far in '08.
