Loeb’s F1 comments sparks media frenzy
- 13th July 2009, 8:20am
"If Toro Rosso need a driver I'd love to help out," Citroen driver Loeb told French sports daily l'Equipe on Saturday.
"I've heard talk of this possibility for Sebastien Bourdais.
"But nothing has happened. You shouldn't think of me at the starting line at the Hungarian Grand Prix (July 26). I'd race instead of Sebastien Bourdais."
He added: "Who knows, as long as the Formula One and rallying calendars don't overlap anything is possible. If there is a place at Toro Rosso I'm available."
The 35-year-old tested with Red Bull last November in Barcelona.
However, according to Citroen rally boss Oliver Quesnel, there is no way Loeb could switch from rallying to Formula One during this rally season.
