Stéphane Peterhansel: "The pressure never goes away"

The overall leader is going into tomorrow's decisive stage with a 17-minute lead over Nasser Al-Attiyah.

"The navigation is designed to throw the drivers off track, so it wasn't easy. We didn't get lost, but we hesitated a lot. We lost very little time to Nasser and that's what really matters. The tension goes up as soon as you start to hesitate, so that's when you need to stay as calm as possible. The pressure never goes away, from the moment you wake up until you go to bed. When you do well in a stage, you know it would be a real pity to see all that effort go down the drain! Being in the lead is the best position, but it's also where you've got the most to lose."
