DAKAR 2013: Peterhansel extends overall lead to 10 minutes after stage five

Stephane Peterhansel increased his lead in the Dakar rally to nearly 10 minutes after finishing second on Wednesday’s fifth stage.

The Frenchman benefitted from closest rival Nasser Al-Attiyah’s problems, as the Qatari driver went off course and lost time. Team Qatar Red Bull’s driver started the Arequipa-Arica stage strong and set the early pace, looking to close in on Peterhansel. But Al-Attiyah and his co-driver made a navigational mistake that eventually cost them six minutes. The 42-year-old remained in second place overall, but Peterhansel’s lead increased to 9 minutes and 54 seconds.

The stage was won by Peterhansel’s Monster X-Raid team-mate Nani Roma, who set the pace after a quiet start. Roma’s stage win put him in contention for fourth place overall, as he is now only 8 seconds behind fellow Mini driver Leonid Novitskiy. South African Giniel de Villiers remains third, despite problems with the brakes on stage five.

U.S. veteran Robby Gordon regained his pace after his disastrous start to the rally. The Hummer driver finished the stage on third place, but in the overall standings he is still a massive six hours behind the leader. Carlos Sainz has also a lot to recover, as he is three hours behind and outside the top 20. He was sixth fastest in the fifth stage.
