Loeb Would Consider Permanent F1 Move In 2010
Sebastian Loeb has admitted he would seriously consider any forthcoming offer from an F1 team for a permanent move to F1 in 2010, alongside some testing in 2009.
The Frenchman, who has had 2 outings in F1 machinery with Renault and Red Bull Racing, the latter in a proper F1 test session where he impressed with good pace, has just clinched his 5th World Rally Championship title.
“The team bosses think I am too old, but mentally I am not: age would not be an obstacle for me,” the 34-year-old told the French newspaper Liberation.
Loeb said: “With a testing programme in 2009, I would go to the Formula One grid in 2010.”
Loeb has a contract with Citroen to race in the WRC for 2009, but after that the decision is his. It is likely he will leave WRC as he is disolussioned with future plans to change rules, and also changes to the cars.
