FIA WTCC – Termas De Río Hondo Results

The Citroën C-Elysée WTCCs dominated the first two races of the 2015 FIA World Touring Car Championship. José María López won race 1 at the Termas de Río Hondo circuit, ahead of teammates Yvan Muller and Sébastien Loeb.

Sébastien Loeb then produced a magnificent performance in race 2 to keep José María López at bay and claim his third victory in the competition. José María López and Citroën leave Argentina as leaders of the World Drivers’ and Manufacturers’ Championships.

WHAT THEY HAD TO SAY: JOSÉ MARÍA LÓPEZ:

“I’m happy, but it was really tough out in the cars in that heat. Race 1 went perfectly. I didn’t get a great start, but I managed to hold off Yvan. That gave me confidence going into the second race. I tried to be patient and bide my time before going after my rivals. Seb was really quick out front and I couldn’t get past him. Congratulations to him on a great victory. It’s been a very positive weekend for the team and for me too, because I leave here at the top of the World Championship standings.”

Up next is the race of Morocco 17th April!
