“Well, I’m not happy at all, because they (FIA) can measure and see. And the Audi ran a lot… well, it turns out it didn’t run that much. Welcome be. They have all the data to measure what accelerates one car and another and I think that if they give us 8 kW, which is 11 horsepower, they will see that we are missing something”, explained Carlos Sainz when it came to bivouac, benefited. with the rest of Team Audi Sport completed by Stéphane Peterhansel and Mattias Ekstrom.

And through social networks the same ‘neighborhood’ began to get involved, the members of Audi Sport and Toyota Gazoo Racing fighting for the bronze Tuareg in cars.

Thanks for killing the race early @fia, @OfficialW2RC, @dakar.”

And then he was one of the three official Audi drivers, Matthias Ekstrom who replied to the French police in his post on Instagram: “I don’t expect you to be a politician and write things like this.
