WTCC: Season finale at Losail
Jose Maria Lopez won the Drivers’ championship title, Citroen is again best in Constructors’ championship, but before the last two rounds of World Touring Cars Championship there are still few questions which are waiting for the answers.
Norbert Michelisz and Mehdi Bennan are main contenders for the Yokohama Drivers’ Trophy. Hungarian driver in Honda has 152 points, just seven more than Moroccan in Citroen and their battle for the title is probably most interesting thing we should watch in Qatar. Tom Chilton is third with 117 points and it is very unlikely that he could jump in the fight for the title.
Even more interesting could be battle for the Yokohama Teams’ Trophy as four team have a chance to claim the title. With 175 points ROAL Motorsport is on top, followed by Campos Racing with 163 and Zengo Motorsport with 145 points, while Sebastien Loeb Racing has 132 points.
Finally, in the Drivers’ championship two Citroen experienced drivers from Alsace will battle for the runner-up position. After good run of results, Sebastien Loeb moved up to second with 329 points, only five more than Yvan Muller who failed to finish last two rounds in Thailand and dropped to third.
So, there is still plenty to be resolved in WTCC and hopefully we will enjoy on Saturday during two night races in Qatar which is the host of the WTCC races for the first time.
