“Peter” saw his chances of outright triumph get slimmer on the day’s stage as his team-mate Carlos Sainz increased his lead in the general standings, but the Frenchman has not given up yet.

“Today was not a really good day for us. We started first this morning and we got lost just twenty kilometres before the end of the stage. We turned around 8 or 10 minutes before we found the right track. Nasser lost a little bit more, but Carlos and some other drivers were really lucky because they arrived just when we found the right way and then for them it was easy to follow us. At the end we finished together. I think that it was really good because Carlos has been leading since the beginning, he is really fast and now he has a gap over Nasser. For the victory for the team it’s more comfortable for sure”.
