Reflects on his Cyprus win over Gronholm
After taking his eighth victory of the season on Sunday in Cyprus, Sebastien Loeb
extending his championship advantage over Marcus Gronholm
to 35 points with four events remaining. Heading to Turkey, Loeb's aim is clear to wrap
up the championship.
"We will have to finish fourth to win the title in Turkey," Loeb explained. "This will be possible. For that we have to do the rally first and see what happens."
It was a close battle between Loeb and Gronholm in Cyprus and Loeb believes the turning point for his win came down to tyre choice.
"After the first loop I realised it would again be a close fight, Loeb said. It was like this, very close, all weekend. My tyre choice was a good one.
We were fighting, Marcus was really fighting. In the first long stage there was just 0.1 seconds between us. Something changed and I am sure that was the tyres. I used the wide tyre. The second pass was a wide tyre. I think we had more grip with this.
"We have some new rallies coming in. I think they could be interesting. Everything is going well with our car. Okay, I am confident and know it will be a fight."
