World champion Sebastien Loeb of France comfortably won his fourth successive Rally of Germany on Sunday.
Loeb won 12 of the 19 stages in Germany
The Citroen driver, who won 12 of the 19 stages, was 37.4 seconds ahead of his Belgium team-mate Francois Duval, who was told to settle for second.
Loeb's closest rival, Peugeot driver Marcus Gronholm of Finland, was more than two minutes behind Loeb in third.
Loeb, chasing his second successive world title, now leads Gronholm by 32 points with five rounds to go.
The one-two finish also gave Citroen a six-point lead over Peugeot in the manufacturers' standings.
Loeb, who has now triumphed eight times this season, became the third driver to win a rally four times in a row.
"Records don't interest me," he said. "The important thing for me and my team is the championship and with every victory we are getting closer to it.
"We really drove aggressively the first two days but we let up the pace on Sunday and drove without taking risks," Loeb said after his eighth win of the season.
The next event is the British Rally in Wales from 16-18 September.
