In THIS article (in Italian) Botturi described his first special stage as this:
"I was going fast, wait, no, I was going very fast, I was right behind Faria that started 8 minutes before me, but then I got stuck in the wire*. So here comes Vogels, helps me taking it off so I could start again, didn't loose too much time. Problem is that I have probably lost some fuel there and later I had to stop again because I did ran out of it. Again Vogels helped me out."

*Apparently he did a mistake in his navigation and ended on a metallic net, and some wire got stuck in his wheels

It also says that in the second special stage Vogels fell down a slope, luckily with no consequences for him. I think this is the cause for his gap.
