Carlos Sainz to 286 kilometers from his second Dakar victory

19 Enero 2018

Only one stage remains for the Spanish driver

In control of the race with a lead of than an hour over the competition this morning, Carlos Sainz / Lucas Cruz avoided the many pitfalls of the penultimate stage. Despite a small off during the opening section, the Spanish duo conceded only a few minutes to their pursuers. They are still firmly in the lead, 46min18s ahead, with only a 119 km stage remaining on Saturday.

Carlos Sainz: “The first part of the stage was really tricky. I don’t know what happened to the competitors who left after me, but I'm sure there were a lot of problems. The second section was more typical of a WRC stage and a little less complicated, even though there were parts that were really narrow for our PEUGEOT 3008DKR Maxi. The upsets today show that the race isn’t over yet. I hope everything will be fine tomorrow.”
