The Russian driver won his fourth Dakar in Lima following on from his titles obtained in 2013, 2017 and 2018.

“It was a very difficult race. There were a lot of dunes, a lot of sand and very strong competitors, like my team-mates, Gerard de Rooy and Federico Villagra. Thank you for the race. I’m very happy. I’m happy with my crew, they worked perfectly. There were no problems apart from a small problem when we got stuck in the dunes, but our truck is a very good truck. My co-pilot coped with the task perfectly, so I am happy.
