"It was very, very difficult, especially because we were the third car on the road pretty much the whole stage. Basically, with no lines, it's really hard to go through the rocks because, when you have more cars, the rocks form a line. We just got one small puncture, maybe 50 k from the end, so we decided to keep going and finish on the rim. Sorry to the team for that, but I think it was worth it. So, here we are, seven stages in, in a good position. The goal is to fight for the podium and, who knows, I still believe in the win. Six more to go and we need to keep fighting. We'll keep pushing."
