Nasser Al Attiyah: Second place is not bad

A two times winner of the Dakar, Al Attiyah has added a third second-placed finish in his career to his CV.It was a crazy Dakar but we love the Dakar and would like to thank the organisers for everything, for making this a really hard Dakar. Every day the result was changing. We’ve reached the final day in second place – I think it’s not bad with all the problems we got in the first week. I’d like to thank the Toyota team, South Africa and Gazoo Racing. It was really hard work and I’m quite happy to finish second. I was thinking that we wouldn't be on the podium after losing one hour and fifteen minutes, but okay, we are quite happy to be here and second place is not bad, I believe. I remember in 2010 I was second behind Sainz, now in 2018 we finish behind him also, but I will do my best for next year to win the Dakar. Next year, we absolutely can win.
