Today, we won and it’s just huge. It’s definitely the Dakar the most hard in which I participated: physically demanding, but especially mentally. Questioning yourself every morning and fighting, it’s very hard in the head. It’s not like a 42 km marathon, it’s every mornings you have to go back to the coal. All the victories are pretty, but this one is special because the context was delicate until the end, at the last moment. It is impossible to imagine this scenario, in which we fight with seconds. I have done 90 or 85 rallies in my life, and this is the one where I fought the most. Today I am marked. Stéphane Peterhansel, there is none only one on the planet. I don’t know if I’m good in a car, I’ve never tried. What is clear is that he has a good co-driver, Jean-Paul Cotteret, and q I have a good teammate, Ruben Faria ".
