After nine years of total domination of Sebastien Loeb and Daniel Elena time has come for another Sebastien to take the title. Even though the Rallye de France just started, by failing to win the bonus points power stage, Belgian Thierry Neuville lost a chance to challenge Ogier in the remaining events, virtually… »
