Sebastien Loeb wins the 2010 Rally of Great Britain

Sebastien Loeb had his eighth win of the 2010 season in the Rally of Great Britain, rounding off the World Rally Car era. Loeb had beaten Petter Solberg by 19.1 seconds. Solberg also missed out on the runner-up spot in the championship as Jari-Matti Latvala took third from Ford team-mate Mikko Hirvonen on the penultimate stage.

This added just the right number of points for him to finish second in the standings. Loeb had won by a substantial margin but the first half of the rally had been a close fight, with the Citroen driver, teammate Sebastien Ogier, Latvala and Solberg being in a rousing lead skirmish.

When Latvala lost a tire on Friday and Ogier crashed the next day, the race became a fight between Loeb and Solberg. Loeb was able to pull away and was awarded the last win for the present generation of cars before the new rules for next year are imposed.

However, Loeb was aided by the slightly damp conditions and was able to take an immediate lead even as Citroen Junior's Sebastien Ogier had been pressuring him. From second place, Ogier fell to 17th when he misheard a pace note and slid into a barrier.
