Following her win on stage one, Cristina Gutierrez Herrero skilfully managed to avoid the pitfalls on the rally’s second special. With an eleventh-placed finish, twelve minutes behind the day’s winner, the Spaniard has kept hold of fourth place in the general standings.
“I tried to be patient, the stage was too long. Today was a very, very long stage with very hard dunes and a lot of fast stony tracks. I tried to get in front of all these guys. I don’t know the time but I think it’s good. I don’t feel the pressure. I felt good yesterday, but today was another day. The Dakar is so long, I just need to focus on the next day and continue like that”.
