Sebastien Loeb tests the Ford Puma in Spain

Sebastien Loeb’s return to the World Rally Championship seems closer. The nine-time world champion dedicated yesterday to testing the Ford Puma Rally1 in Spain, which has increased the rumors about his possible return to the WRC. By now, you already know what the new generation of hybrid vehicles that debut next season in the race has to offer.

Loeb dedicated the day to riding with the Puma on the asphalt section of Alpens, a special that was used when the Rally of Catalonia was held with its epicenter in Lloret de Mar. The Frenchman, who is the driver with the most world motorsport titles in history, rolled incessantly on the road to the north of the province of Barcelona, to assess his possible return to the World Cup with Ford.

If it is finally decided, It will be difficult to debut with Puma in the first Monte Carlo event, Since there are only three days between the end of the Dakar, where he will race with the Prodrive team, and the start of the reconnaissance of the test that opens the World Championship at the end of January. A complication for the 47-year-old French star, which does not preclude his presence in the Principality. In fact, he has already done a Dakar-Monte Carlo double in 2019.

Craig Breen, the driver signed by Ford to lead his team for the next two seasons, will pick up the witness of Loeb at the wheel of the Puma on the Catalan roads, where he will roll on both asphalt and gravel sections in the race against the clock to arrive with the best preparedness at the beginning of the new hybrid era of the World Rally Championship.
