Loeb takes step closer to Monte Carlo Rally win
The Associated Press
Loeb, competing in one of only four races this season after going into semi-retirement, has won six of the past seven Monte Carlo Rallies. The Citroen driver leads countryman Sebastien Ogier by 1 minute, 47.4 seconds.
Loeb won stages one and three to add 13 seconds to his overnight lead over Ogier, who also drives a Citroen.
Norway's Mads Ostberg won the other stage of the day.
The 38-year-old Loeb won't secure a 10th straight world title because he'll only race in Sweden, Argentina and France this year.
