Selected driver quotes after Dakar stage 9

17.01.2019: Nasser Al-Attiyah: “Today was very difficult, not easy at all. A lot of soft sand. We took it easy and we did a really good job. Until now everything has been going very well. Tomorrow we just need to bring it home to Lima. Always we try to do our best

Nasser Al-Attiyah: “Today was very difficult, not easy at all. A lot of soft sand. We took it easy and we did a really good job. Until now everything has been going very well. Tomorrow we just need to bring it home to Lima. Always we try to do our best because it’s really not easy here. Everyday we work really hard to have a good speed and not to make any mistakes.”



Giniel De Villiers:
“The aim this morning was just to follow Nasser (Al-Attiyah). We let him pass just after the beginning and then followed him for about 70 kilometres in the dunes. It was easy to follow because there was no dust. Then we got into some fesh-fesh and I dropped back about a minute and a half so we could see in the dust. We just tried to follow the tracks of Nasser in case he needed us, but he did a great job. For us as a team our aim is to get Nasser over the line in first place.”



Kuba Przygonski:
“It was a nice stage. On the first part we were pushing to catch Sébastien (Loeb). We picked up a puncture and 10 kilometres from the end we got stuck, so we lost some time. We’re so happy that we’ve been able to be competitive in our car against the other teams.”



Cyril Despres
: “First all we’re happy that Seb (Loeb), Daniel (Elena), Stéphane (Peterhansel) and David (Castera) are all OK. We stopped with Stephane and David to make sure everything was fine while the helicopter coming. We were having our first really good day of this Dakar, until 15 kilometres from the finish line. There was a waypoint that was not easy to find. When we went back over the small dunes we nearly hit a bike that didn’t see us. We brought our car to the right and went over on our side. Luckily Martin Prokop stopped for us.”




Sébastien Loeb:
“We were doing a really good stage and pushing hard since the start. At kilometre 250, or something like this, we had a broken transmission. This is something that is quite tough to fix, but we had a spare one so we changed it. Then it broke again so we had to wait for Pierre (Lachaume), he gave us his spare transmission. We spent more time changing it again.”



Stéphane Peterhansel:
“We came over a dune and landed head-on in the next dune. Everything went so fast that David (Castera), who was looking at the roadbook at that moment, didn’t expect the impact.”



Toby Price:
“We were on some tracks that we’d taken in previous days so we knew the area a little bit. Some of the waypoints were still tricky to find. The last little section in the dunes was tough, two waypoints caught us out. We’re in the fight with one stage left so hopefully we’re looking at a one or two result and I’ll be happy with that. Today was all about being smooth and consistent, there wasn’t really the chance to break away. I just needed to keep everyone in sight and that’s what we managed to do.”



Matthias Walkner:
“It felt like a really long day because we were on and off the pace all day. Sometimes it was high, then it would slow down and then go high again. It was a much harder stage than we expected. It was a good day for me, I lost no time. Now I hope I can really enjoy the last stage.”



Luciano Benavides:
“There was some chaos at the beginning. We started as the first 10 bikes all together in the dunes. I got lost for about five minutes in the fog and after that I pushed a lot to catch the front group. In the end I didn’t lose too much to the top guys so it was another good day.”



Daniel Nosiglia:
“This was my best stage in the Dakar. I did a great job today. I was very fast. The bike and the navigation were both good. Now I’m here with one more day to go to reach the finish line.”



Mohammed Balooshi: “
Today was 313 kilometres, most of it in the dunes and the navigation was the most complicated part of the stage. There were tracks from previous days on the stage so it was easy to follow the wrong line. You had to pay a lot of attention to the roadbook today.”



Chaleco Lopez:
“On the first week of this Dakar we had some problems, but the second week has been excellent. We’ll take care now on the final stage, watch out for the tyres. Only at the finish line will we stop to reflect on our result.”
