Five years after his last WRC win (Argentina 2013), Loeb led his Citroën C3 through the finish line. Despite a rainy morning, Citroën Total Abu Dhabi technical team has managed to predict the drying out of the road to put Loeb and Elena in the best conditions to fulfill their goal : win the race.

"Right now, given how the rally panned out, I’d be tempted to say it’s perhaps my greatest win and I’m delighted to secure what is a richly-deserved result for the team."
