Cyril Despres: We didn’t come to Saudi Arabia for the Ha’il Baja


Cyril Despres and Mike Horn accomplished their first top 5 finish between Sakaka and Neom. The Peugeot crew competing for the Abu Dhabi Racing team occupy eleventh place in the general standings, 4 hours and 9 minutes behind the leader.

“It was a good day. We were missing our rhythm during the first week. We didn’t have time for training. We didn’t come to Saudi Arabia for the Ha’il Baja and its four days of racing and we were missing a little bit of rhythm.

But it’s ok, the most important for us was to be on the starting line, to try and push every day and to have the best data for the car to give us the possibility to reproduce this data and this analysis on the fuel cell car for the future. Today, that’s the most important”.
