Loeb Confirms USF1 Contact

Now for a story sure to interest rally fans all over the world, rumors that a person representing Sebastien Loeb contacted future Formula One team USF1, have been confirmed by the French rally driver.

The 35-year-old French remained in the automotive media's spotlights since he tested an F1 car with Red Bull earlier this winter. Since then the motorsport press wrote about the mega-successful French rally driver's allegedly introduction to Formula 1.

Now, as this new information surfaced, the French daily L'Equipe talked with both USF1 and Sebastien Loeb. "Somebody representing Loeb called us but I won't give details of the conversation", said Peter Windsor, sporting director at USF1.

"He is an incredible talent and he would definitely make things interesting in F1. We are looking more on the American side but are going to take him seriously", added Peter Windsor.

This was confirmed by the French rally-car driver fro the same French media. "I wanted to know if a team was really interested in me for F1. Someone contacted this new team but I don't know what happened", revealed Loeb.

But this doen't seem to draw Sebastien Loeb's interest away from his triumphant rally driving career, as he evoked his curiosity and interest in Formula One IF the calendars won't overlap.

"I am enjoying myself in the WRC and am on the verge of extending my contract with Citroen. But if I get the opportunity to do a couple of races in 2010 when the calendars don't clash then why not?", said the Frenchman.
