The WTCC arrives at Losail yet decided. A final decaffeinated of a championship in which Pechito ‘López’ and Citroën Racing have been the dominators. To solve the lack of battle -to the margin of the runner-up position and the title of Independent – the championship has a series of what’s new in a compressed program. The last test of the calendar of the fia WTCC is to be played on Thursday and Friday, in a scenario unheard of for the pilots, and at night, under artificial light. All these developments are seasoned with the debut of the successful local rider Nasser Al-Attiyah.
With the drivers title and marks determined in previous appointments, the main fight is for second place. Sébastien Loeb dispute his last race in the WTCC after his abrupt departure from Citroen and is played to finish second with his teammate Yvan Muller, who himself will continue in the championship in the last campaign of the official team of the brand. Five points separating the two French pilots in a fight in which there are nine titles in the WRC and the four crowns of the WTCC on the table. In addition, Gabriele Tarquini, Tiago Monteiro and Norbert Michelisz will play to be the best Honda rider in the standings.
Norbert Michelisz is immersed in a second battle, the
the title of Independent Pilots. The Hungarian comes with a 7 point advantage
about Mehdi Bennani after a difficult weekend in Buriram. In your
against is the inferiority mechanics as the pilot of Zengo Motorsport

test with the Citroën C-Elysée for Sébastien Loeb Racing. A fight of pilots
private will have much to say other pilots as

time in the WTCC, and what is the same, played their first races to the
controls of a vehicle of front wheel drive on a circuit. The pilot qatar has

extra, while the Honda Civic WTCC will continue dragging 40 kilos more than
the account. Dam of the small improvement of performance view in the Lada in the
latest tests, the Lada Vesta will carry 10 kilos ballast, with a final weight
