Sainz closing in on Dakar Rally victory with one stage to go

Spaniard Carlos Sainz was one stage away from a third Dakar Rally triumph after ending the penultimate day in Saudi Arabia with a 10 minute lead over Qatar’s defending champion Nasser al Attiyah. Mini buggy driver Sainz, whose son and namesake races in Formula One for McLaren, finished third in 379km stage over desert dunes from Shubaytah to Haradh.

Sainz’s French team mate Stephane Peterhansel, a 13-times Dakar winner on two wheels and four, won the stage his fourth victory on this year’s event and career 80th. He is now just six seconds behind Toyota’s Al Attiyah going into the final 374km to Qiddiya with the pair gaining eight minutes on Sainz, the first driver to start the 11th stage.
