Fernando Alonso finished eighth in a stage he started in 113th place and continued to move up the Dakar learning curve.
"Yesterday we had a low-speed roll-over, it was not big. We finished the stage with no issues. Today we had no issues. It was a good marathon stage. In the first leg we lost a bit of time, but these things can happen to anyone. The second leg was okay today, more sandy. Starting 113th in the classification didn't help. I'm very happy. You learn things every day. One day left to finish my first Dakar."
