Carlos Sainz: “I cannot be one hundred per cent happy”

January 15 th 2021 - 13:21 [GMT + 3]

The title holder finished the rally this year on the third step of the podium on which the two X-Raid team buggies took their place, providing some sort of consolation for the Spaniard.

“A podium finish is always important, but I cannot be one hundred per cent happy, because we had the opportunity to fight for the victory, but we did not do such a good job with the navigation and the road-book. We didn’t understand it and we paid for it. On the other hand, I'm happy for the team and happy for Stéphane. He did a really fantastic job. That is why he is called “Mister Dakar”. It’s the same podium as last year but we are on opposite sides. It’s good, but I’ve not much else to say. We need to keep working. I don’t know if we will be here next year for the moment. We will see what opportunities there are”.
