Mathieu Serradori: “I’d like to dedicate this victory to Paulo”

January 13 th 2020 - 11:05 [GMT + 3]

The amateur driver from Southern France triumphed on the stage around Wadi Al Dawasir in front of all the professional teams… with Fernando Alonso as his nearest pursuer on the day’s special!

“I’m absolutely delighted. It’s a wonderful story. Yesterday’s stage was very complicated – we made a mistake and paid a heavy price. This morning, we pulled our socks up and left everyone behind us. I’d like to dedicate this victory to Paulo because I’m a former biker. It’s not easy to get motivated after a day like that and my co-pilot Fabien was there as well. But there are two fighters in the car and I’m very happy with this result”.
