Citroen Racing takes the WTCC Championship title once again making it the third on the trot, as they leave to go back to WRC.
SLR driver Tom Chilton got off to a flyer in his Citroën C-Elysée WTCC, moving into second place.
Back in the chasing pack, Yvan Muller and José María López were engaged in something of a free-for-all. The Citroën Total drivers ended the first lap in sixth and ninth respectively, with their cars already battered and bruised from their attacking rivals.
The crowd was exhilarated as the gaps between the top five closed up with three laps remaining.
The top two made contact on several occasions, with Björk eventually emerging victorious, ahead of Michelisz, Muller, López and Nick Catsburg.
José María López: “It has been a fantastic weekend for all of us. We were the fastest out there.
There was no pressure on me, as I knew I could get the better of Catsburg at the start of the main race. After that, I just tried to enjoy every lap in the Citroën C-Elysée WTCC. What a fantastic car! It’s not often you get the opportunity to go out and win like that, without having to worry about anything whatsoever. We are all incredibly lucky to be part of this amazing adventure and we will be looking to finish in style in Doha.”
