Silk Way Rally stage 7 -Nasser Al-Attiyah: “China is going to be complicated”

S.7 – DALANZADGAD - BAYINBAOLIGE
Distance: 551KM
Saturday, July 13th 2019




Unbeaten since the start in Irkutsk, with 6 wins over the 6 stages, Nasser Al-Attiyah and Mathieu Baumel (Toyota Gazoo Racing Overdrive) have left mere crumbs for their rivals. The premature retirement of their teammate and the title holder, the Saudi Arabian Yazeed Al Rajhi (broken engine) has no doubt made their job easier.



But nevertheless, from the tricky tracks of Siberia to the ultra-fast Mongolian steppes, the winners of the last Dakar have been untouchable, to the point of being able drop the pace slightly over the last two stages.



Relegating Liu Kun (Hanwei SMG), the winner of the last Chinese edition of the SILK WAY RALLY, to more than 40 minutes, Nasser Al-Attiyah can go into China with a reasonable hope of achieving a first final victory on an event where the win has so far escaped him.



“I nevertheless think that the last three days in China are going to be complicated,” admits the Qatari driver. “It will be the same for everyone, because I think the contrast will be big with what we’ve had up until now, since the start of this race in Siberia and in Mongolia. We are very curious to discover this part of the Gobi Desert.



Normally I like the sand and the dunes. But whether they are in Africa, South America, the Middle East or here in China, they are all different.” Which in theory gives an advantage to Liu Kun and the many other Chinese drivers still fighting for a place on the podium, with no less than 6 crews present in the top 10.
