Lopez and Loeb triumph in Argentina
Sébastien Loeb and José María Lopéz claimed the first two victories of the 2015 FIA WTCC in Termas de Rio Hondo. After having clinched the pole position, Lopéz triumphed in Race 1 at his home track. The 31-year-old reigning champion was unable to prevent his Citroën team-mate from claiming top spot in Race 2.
Yvan Muller finished second in Race 1 following a first-corner bump with Lopéz, while Loeb completed an all Citroën podium. Tiago Monteiro (Honda) finished third in Race 2 behind Lopéz, who leaves Argentina as championship leader.
Norbert Michelisz and Mehdi Bennani shared the wins in the Yokohama Drivers’ Trophy.
