The Argentinean driver recruited this year by team BRX won the 7th special in his career and his first in Saudi Arabia, finishing one minute ahead of the Audi driven by Mattias Ekström.

“It was a difficult stage because there were the tracks of the bikes, but some went in the wrong direction, so we had to stay very focused. It wasn’t simple to overtake the other cars on the very fast first part, everybody was driving very vast. At the neutralised zone, we felt that we were doing a good job, so we pushed harder on the second part. The sand was very soft, so it was very complicated to drive on. In the end, we won the stage and that’s a great feeling. The car is fantastic and we are going to carry on pushing because we know that there is still a long way to go and that we can put in some fine performances”.
