Unfortunate off by Sebastien Loeb in SS 3 of 2012 Rally Portugal only proves that even the best make mistakes, and pretty odd ones too. He described it so many times already – by not strictly following Daniel Elena’s pacenote call, Loeb ended up setting the car in the wrong direction over the crest, and ended up rolling into retirement.
Thanks to Michelin and Best of Rally Live we now have a chance to see the crash footage and listen to Seb and Daniel comments after the retirement.
Epic battle between two factory teams got significantly less epic after Loeb’s exit, but let’s hope Mikko Hirvonen will not be thinking (only) about points over the weekend.
