Sebastian Loeb to retire at the end of 2011 season
His namesake, Sebastian Ogier, is definitely a prime candidate to fill his shoes, but none compared to him.
What do you guys think, is he retiring to soon? Should he have stayed on for a little while longer?

Having followed Loeb right from the day he started, it does feel weird to think of an era without him. While it had to end sometime, very few people have dominated sport this way. Someone head and shoulders above the rest. Can only think of Sergei Bubka in the same vein.
What seems remarkable is his ability to be on the limit without looking like a kamikaze pilot. When Colin Mcrae drove, it was anybody's guess whether he would make it alive. No wonder Seb is called as "the machine" in WRC.
Well, i don't think he is retiring too soon. He has just had a nice long run and does not want to take any more risks. He probably thinks differently than Indian cricketers who keep playing until their bodies die on them.
