Carlos Sainz has achieved his second victory of the year on completion of the day’s special finishing near Ha’il.
The Spaniard was the quickest driver at the first intermediate point and went on to open the gap over his pursuers who were not able to catch him. All in all, a fine performance from the Mini driver.
“We are happy. At least we had a normal stage. It was a lot of sand, we didn’t have any problems with navigating system. Today was the best day we have had in this Dakar. We should analyze our mistakes during a free day. But neither me, nor Lucas can’t be happy for what we have already done here”, to MARCA said Carlos Sainz.
