Nani Roma finished second in stage 7 and shipped 4'33" to Stéphane Peterhansel, but he capitalised on Sébastien Loeb's misfortune to move up to third place overall. The Mini driver also cut his deficit to leader Nasser Al-Attiyah to 37 minutes.
"It's not bad because today was another difficult day. There were lots of dunes and, with our 4x4, it's harder to choose the right pressure for the tyres. There was a moment when we jumped really high, hit our backs and found ourselves gasping for breath. However, we didn't make too many mistakes overall. We're happy to be here."
