LOEB AND CITROËN PART WAYS
The Citroën Total team finished its season with another two victories for Lopez and Muller, and said goodbye to Sébastien Loeb who will now fly the Peugeot colours in off-road rallies!
Finishing on a high note
Double world champion, José Maria Lopez, scored his seventh pole position and clinched his 10th victory confirming his domination of the 2015 WTCC. Yvan Muller won the second race and overtook Sébastien Loeb in the battle for the runner-up spot. The Citroën Total team finished its second year in the WTCC with 21 wins in 24 races, the manufacturers’ title and a quadruple success in the drivers’ ratings!
“By winning the races here with the titles already decided, José María López and Yvan Muller reminded everyone why they are the best drivers in the competition today. The whole team was terribly sad when it sunk in that this was Sebastien Loeb’s last race with us. A great chapter in the history of motorsport has ended today. We will always share a lot of fond memories with Sebastien.”
Yves Matton (Team Principal – Citroën Racing)
“I wanted to hold onto second place in the World Championship, but I knew it would be difficult and that Yvan would push hard to get the better of me. Even though there was only one point in it in the end, I have no regrets. I thank Citroën for that and for everything we have done together over the past 15 years. It was really emotional to be with the team for the last time today, but I’m looking to the future, and the challenges that lie ahead for me are exciting. I still have a few things I want to try before I call it a day!”
Sebastien Loeb (Citroën Total Team)
