11:35 am on 12 November 2012

Motor rallying's greatest driver Sebastien Loeb has ended his last full season with a ninth victory after winning the Rally of Spain in his final outing as a full-time driver.

The 9-time world champion will compete in only a limited number of events next season before joining the World Touring Car Championship in 2014.

38 year old Loeb always said he wanted to quit rallying at his peak, and his teammate Mikko Hirvonen will become Citroen's main driver next year.
