Loeb is already enthusiastic about the challenge: “With the arrival of other manufacturers in the championship, the competition is going to get tougher. The rule changes concerning the starting order in 2012 mean all drivers will be fighting on a level playing field. To take the fight to them, I’m putting my trust in Citroën, a team I know inside out, and also the DS3 WRC, the car I helped set up with Citroën Racing.”

Frédéric Banzet, the Citroën General Manager, commented: “Sébastien Loeb is a great ambassador for Citroën. His image and ours are intimately linked. He incarnates the daring, sporting spirit and love of competition, values that are dear to us. We’re proud of his loyalty to Citroën, and that he’s continuing his career with the team that’s supported him since his debut.”
