Loeb refuses win after Park death
Sebastien Loeb deliberately incurred a two-minute penalty to avoid retaining his world crown after the death of Markko Martin's co-driver Michael Park.

The cancellation of the remaining stages and the withdrawal of Martin's Peugeot team-mate Marcus Gronholm would have seen Loeb clinch the title.

But the Citroen driver decided not to profit in such tragic circumstances, relegating himself to third place.

That meant Subaru's Petter Solberg took the win, with Francois Duval second.
