The World Rally Championship has produced absolute legends behind the wheel. The 13 events that make up the WRC have tested the best drivers on natural terrain, unlike racing drivers who have specially prepared tracks.
The dynamics of the WRC are drastically different from track events because of the surface. For example, cars move from a tarmac to gravel to ice.
There are many legends in the WRC; here are two of the best WRC drivers.
Among WRC drivers, Sebastian is a god. The Frenchman has won 9 drivers’ championships. He also holds the record for the most wins a row, having won all 9 of his titles in a row between 2004 and 2012. Loeb won all his titles with Citroen, making Citroen the car that has won most titles.
The Finnish driver has won four championships. Like Loeb, he won all four in a row, between 1996 and 1999. For all his wins, Tommi drove a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. He is now retired and lives with his two children and wife.
In the upcoming championships, we are going to be on the lookout for whoever is driving the Audi R8 rally car as it looks like it’s going to leave the competition in the dust.
