Tony CastaneiraAnalyst INovember 28, 2016

Five-time WRC Champion Sebastien Loeb, announced that he would like to take the Torro Rosso seat if the rumors of Sebastien Bourdais leaving are true.
 
"If Toro Rosso need a driver I'd love to help out," Citroen driver Loeb told French sports daily l'Equipe on Saturday.

He added, "Who knows, as long as the Formula One and rallying calendars don't overlap anything is possible. If there is a place at Toro Rosso I'm available."
 
Loeb, currently second in the world rally standings, spent several hours at the headquarters of Red Bull, the sister stable of Italian outfit Toro Rosso, in England three weeks ago.
 
The 35-year-old, tested with Red Bull last November in Barcelona and impressed those in attendance with his times.
 
Speculation has been rife that Bourdais could be fired by Toro Rosso after Sunday's German Grand Prix following a series of poor results.
