Sébastien Loeb became champion for the seventh successive season by claiming his 60th WRC win on the streets of his birthplace, Haguenau.[2][3] Dani Sordo was second and Petter Solberg was third. Thanks to Sordo's second place, Citroën also retained its manufacturers champion title on this same event.

IntroductionEdit

Prior to the rally, depending on results, Sébastien Loeb had the chance to clinch his seventh consecutive world title with two events to spare.[4] With a 43-point lead over Sébastien Ogier pre-rally, Loeb had to outscore Ogier by eight points. If Loeb scored more than six points on the event, it would eliminate Ford's Jari-Matti Latvala from championship contention. As it turned out, Loeb won the event which gave him the title.
