The French private driver is here to rain on the favourites’ parade… and finished fourth today.
“It was a hard day for everyone. We’re glad the stage is over. We set the tone for the Dakar. There were plenty of changes of pace. We weren’t reckless, but we pushed hard all day long. We made a few mistakes here and there, but we’re in good company in this regard.
Fabien did a sterling job with the navigation, putting me back on track after I got into a tight spot two or three times. We jumped into all the right wadis. The big guns are on their way. Carlos and Stéphane are putting in an excellent performance, but so did we.”
