2011 and 2015 Dakar champion Nasser Al-Attiyah finished second in last year's edition and is one of the favourites for this year. The Toyota driver, flanked by his loyal lieutenant Matthieu Baumel, aims to capitalise on the sand and dunes of Peru to claim victory with the Japanese maker after his triumphs with Volkswagen and Mini.[This Dakar] will be different. Only in one country, 70% sand dunes… It will be really hard. We need to respect all the drivers. This time we have a really good car. Last year we finished in second place. We improved a lot since last Dakar. Last year, we had a few problems. My aim is to win this Dakar for Toyota. Last year, the strategy of Peugeot was having four cars, with everyone helping the leader. This year, all Peugeot riders are with Mini. The race is shorter, we need to be really focused and not lose any time with the navigation.
