Loeb back in winning mode

11:20 am on 8 March 2010

Defending world champion Sebastien Loeb has won Rally Mexico to claim his first WRC victory of the season.

The Citroen driver has now won Mexico four times in a row but more importantly goes to the top of the drivers' championship ahead of the Ford driver Mikko Hirvonen who could only manage fourth place.

The Frenchman says it was important to get back into winning mode in the second round.

Round 3 of the WRC is in Jordan early next month.
