With two cars on the podium, Sebastien Loeb leading the drivers' championship and Citroen closer to the lead in the manufacturers' standings, Citroen Total boss Oliver Quesnel said he was delighted with the way the weekend had turned out.
Today's result is Citroen’s fifth straight success in Argentina, while Sebastien has become the most successful driver ever on the South American fixture with four consecutive wins to his name.
"It's an excellent result for us,” said Quesnel. “When you see how the event unfolded, it clearly wasn't an easy rally, yet both our crews figured amongst the few who didn't put a foot wrong. Apart from the steering rack problem which slowed Dani on Friday, we didn't have any mechanical trouble either.
“The combination of two such sure-footed drivers and the reliability of the C4 has enabled us to go top in the drivers' standings and also make up much of our deficit in the Manufacturers' points table. It's now up to us to keep up the hard work in order to leave nothing to chance with a view to repeating the same sort of performance in Jordan, which is the next round.”
