Stéphane Peterhansel: I don’t think I can attack much more


The overall leader is having to dig really deep to defend his lead over Nasser Al-Attiyah.

“We’re not marking one another, it’s just one relentless attack after another, and in the end we finished in the same time! Apart from a small navigation error near the finish, I don’t think I can attack much more. To stay in concention, we need to go all out. So far, so good, as we aren’t making too many mistakes. In the old times, 50% of all contenders would be knocked out for the race by driving mistakes or technical issues, but it’s become far less common, so you just have to hold on.”
