Citroen steals the podium in Race 1 one of the WTCC, with Jose Maria Lopez winning the race, and Seb Loeb and Yvan Muller, close after.

With a tailor made car, developed especially for the new, TC1 rules, during 2013, it isn't a big surprise. The surprise came from Honda's inability to put pressure on Citroen.

Race 2 was pretty crazy, with crashes and about half of the cars not finishing the race.

Loeb won the race, followed by Maria Lopez and Hugo Valente in a Cruze.

Honda wasn't as fast as you expect a works team to be, after their main driver, Gabriele Tarquini didn't race because his fellow Italian, Gianni Morbidelli did an Italian job, on his car, making it unavailable for the race.

I wonder if Honda officials are concerned, or they hope that Citroen will surrender, before the season ends.
