France's Sebastien Loeb has won his ninth Rally of Germany title in a decade to extend his lead in the World Rally Championship.

Loeb finished just over two minutes clear of Jari-Matti Latvala with another Finn Mikko Hirvonen another 30 seconds behind.

It is the Citroen driver's 74th win of his career and he is now 54 points ahead of his team-mate Hirvonen.

The next event on the WRC calendar is the Wales Rally Great Britain starting on September 13th in Cardiff, the 10th of 13 in a season which culminates in Spain's Rally de Espana on November 11th.
