The Alien, master strategist, decides to help his mate. What does he do? He let the boys go up front and they have hard time with the navigation. They are all a bit lost. Chaleco is one of them, he loses time. In the meantime he tells Caselli to slowdown, and explain to him wtf is happening.
Faria, with the broken rim gets to be 2nd in the special, and gains 3 minutes on Chaleco.
Well done Cyril, muddyboy
I've just forgot all the mud situation.
And this is what intrests me the most about DAKAR, never mind the physical and mechanical issues one has to deal with. CDP shows that he is the ultimate stategist, he has been calculating his moves since day 2, he know short of a mechanical failure he has overall wrapped up. He now starts strategizing forhis team mates to optimize their finishing positions.
CDP has shown that he deserves the position within the team and shows that he truly is part of the team.
