The Auto sport has claimed the agreement of Sebastien Loeb who is signing his first professional contract outside the PSA group. Loeb is currently free and out of any contract. He is riding sport run Peugeot 3008 DKR in Abu Dhabi, for the next month’s Dakar.
The Hyundai team’s assistant manager was the first to comment that the Korean squad has decided to hire the 9 times World Rally champion from France. The removing of Hayden Paddon is not sure and joining of Sebastien Loeb is not yet completed and how he will be fit in the Hyundai squad.
The entry of the Loeb in Dakar can make the issues complicated with Monte Carlo. The departure of Peugeot has left Loeb without any contract for the first time in the last two decades.
Sebastien Loeb will make a comeback after five year gap. He would be confident by his win in Spain.
