I agree... although as Troy says, Peterhansel is a 'professional' through and through, and has been in this game long enough to know when to play politics and when to say "f*ck 'em"...
I would not be surprised that the real
reason he was not allowed to claim his '12th' will all come out, once his new deal is signed and sealed with Peugeot.
It does seem to me that MINI missed a MASSIVE PR coup with that though... that said, it's not as if MINI currently make a big deal out of their Dakar successes in their general advertising and marketing?
