Fifth today, more than 13 minutes behind the winner, the man from South Africa brought the raw power of his two-wheel drive car to bear, although the altitude affected its performance.

Brian Baragwanath – Stage 7 – ENG

"A very fast stage today. It suits the two-wheel drive. It's a little bit difficult to win a stage like this at high altitude. If we have this terrain at low altitude, possibly we can try and win this kind of stages. But glad to be competing here. We didn't have the motorbikes' tracks today and the first cars opening the road were unable to rely on them like they usually do. At the end it was a little bit challenging. We had one scary moment kissing the ground on the nose today, but otherwise no problems."
