Fernando Alonso completed this Thursday, a very good special on a day in which appeared the first dunes, not very big and with a lot of vegetation. He finished in seventh place after losing just 12 minutes with Carlos Sainz. The terrain begins to change and the Spanish rider appreciates it. “In the stones, the rivers dry, I'm not as comfortable as in the sand. When there is a lot of stone I'm very careful always to not prick. With these cars, unlike the buggies, you have to always go with the wheels very straight, because they just support the flank is cut to the side, so that you're always very uncomfortable”, he explained at the end of the stage.

When he got his first I stopped the car and I asked Marc: where Do we go up now? I said: Of front. And I: But where to?. Front. But do we climb? And I said: Yes. And it was a metre of sand! “The improvement has been spectacular, trust and win,” he says.
“The help of all my colleagues, De Villiers, Al-Attiyah and, above all, of Marc Coma, that has millions of miles in the dunes and in this race have done that would compress what I had taken years of preparation and that it did so in seven months.”
