Mechanical problems delay Carlos Sainz in the second stage of the Dakar Rally

07 Enero 2018

In spite of everything it was sixth

Carlos Sainz/Lucas Cruz were hindered by Lucas feeling unwell, but under challenging circumstances they recorded a top-six finish on the stage to move into the top 10 overall, despite having to change two wheels after the tyres came off the rim.

Carlos Sainz: “The stage started quite well, we were quite fast in the beginning. We caught and passed Cyril, but then we thought we had missed a waypoint, so we turned round and lost a bit of time. Then we caught Seb, but we also had a tyre come off the rim twice during the stage. At the end, we were lost again looking for a waypoint so we had to drive around a bit and dropped more time. It was a tricky stage, especially for my co-driver Lucas, who was sick, but we got through it.”
