According to Peugeot’s simulation, the 208 should have been capable of a time of 8m 15sec, but the nine-times World Rally Champion eclipsed that. “I really didn’t expect anything better than 8m15s, so to do 8m13s was fantastic,” said Loeb. “Before the start I didn’t really know if I should push absolutely to the maximum or if I should just push to a comfortable pace, in order to make sure of the victory. In the end, I decided to push to the limit.”
