Dakar Rally 2020
Saudi Arabia
Stage 10




Nasser Al-Attiyah (No. 300)
: “The stage started really well for us and we quickly caught up with the car in front of us. But then both of us struggled to find a waypoint, which cost us a few minutes. Unfortunately, we took the wrong track after finding the spot and we ended up doing 20 kilometres extra. We made our way back but lost about 18 minutes. That’s the way the game works and tomorrow is still a long stage. It isn’t over yet and tomorrow’s stage starts with 80 kilometres of difficult dunes, so anything can happen. But today was a little bit disappointing for us.”
 


Giniel de Villiers (No. 304)
: “Today’s stage was only 230 kilometres long, with the second part cancelled due to safety. It was a really difficult stage and quite dangerous with many sharp dunes. The visibility was also a problem this morning due to the high wind speeds. We decided to take a cautious approach and finished in third place. Tomorrow promises to be another difficult stage but we’ll try our best as always.”
 


Bernhard ten Brinke (No. 307)
: “It was quite a nice stage although we found it difficult and quite dangerous, with many dune slip faces. We did find the shortened stage somewhat too short to our liking, but it was probably better for the car as we made it here with no damage. The Hilux is in perfect shape, so we are in a good position to take on tomorrow’s stage.”
 


Fernando Alonso (No. 310):
“We rolled the car early on in the stage which changed our original plans. In general, I think we had a good day despite the roll, because we didn’t lost too much time. We lost a few places in the overall standings but I’m happy to have experienced another challenging day at the Dakar. After the roll, we had to change the wheels and suspension arm because we felts something strange. We felt 100% after that, until the stage was stopped by the organisers.



In the end, it was better for us to spend a bit more time at the bivouac so we could wait for the assistance truck and try to repair the windscreen for tomorrow. I think we were quite lucky today; to get to the end of the stage and still be in 14th place overall. Our Hilux is still running and we didn’t sustain too much damage. We are really lucky to be here and we are ready to start the stage tomorrow.



The Dakar is a really tough race and it proves itself to be challenging every day. We won’t give up. We aren’t here just to take part. We’re here to race, to try and set good times, to win stages and to do well. That is what we enjoy doing.”
