Sebastien Loeb says the new Super 2000 regulations that will be introduced to the World Rally Championship for 2010 can be good for the sport.
Despite being an outspoken critic of the proposed switch to S2000, the five-time champion believes it could be a positive move for the championship in the current financial climate.
"Firstly, it won't be the same Super 2000 as we see now, it will be different cars," Loeb told autosport.com.
"I don't like normal Super 2000 but it's a big difference between the Super 2000 we see at the moment and the one we will have.
"At the moment, Super 2000 doesn't have any torque and so it's not nice to see in the hairpins, it's very slow. But we will have turbos so it's much more horsepower than this S2000 - it's nearly a hundred horsepower difference, that's a lot.
"If it's done correctly with the turbo, we shouldn't lose much horsepower and maybe it can be a good car and still interesting for the spectators, we will see.
"If it will reduce the cost a lot and help manufacturers to come into the game, with more drivers, it can be a good thing."
