Dakar Rally: Sébastien Loeb has shared a reflection of today’s stage through his social networks. After yesterday’s huge nightmare, with three punctures, the Frenchman, accompanied by Daniel Elena, completed a great record today with the BRX.
The former World Rally Champions qualified sixth, 16 minutes behind the fastest time, achieved by Qatari Nasser Al-Attiyah with the Toyota. This result has made them recover more than ten positions. Therefore, in the general classification they are already seventh, 36:40 minutes from the lead, in the hands of Stéphane Peterhansel.
This was the Frenchman’s reflection at the end of the stage: “After yesterday’s nightmare, today we were able to complete a good special. We won more than ten places in the general classification. But, above all, we continue to learn with the car and progress every day. Do not forget that it is his first race. “
Nani Roma, his teammate, was not so lucky today. After achieving an eighth place in yesterday’s stage, the Catalan has left more than half an hour at the finish line. Navigation problems between kilometers 351 and 398 prevented Rome from getting another good role in the top ten.
