The French driver Stéphane Peterhansel (Mini) has recognized how “important” it has been to achieve his fourteenth victory in the Dakar Rally, by winning a new title in the car category this Friday, and has recalled that he is the only one who has been able to win “in the three continents”, after winning in Africa, America and Asia.

“Winning a 14th time was important, because this year makes 30 of my first victory in the Dakar on motorcycles. It was in 1991. And I am the only one who has won in the three continents,” he said in statements provided by the organization.

In addition, ‘Monsieur Dakar’ assured that despite everything “the pressure is still just as strong.” “Every race is just as difficult to win. You always have to give your all, you have to master everything, you have to have a good car, a good team … And, in the end, the error is human and even if we get everything else, it’s easy to make a mistake, “he concluded.

Peterhansel, 55, who relies on the Spanish Carlos Sainz (Mini), reigned in the motorcycle category, riding a Yamaha, in 1991, 1992, 1993, 1995, 1997 and 1998; After his change to four wheels, he signed the final triumph in 2004, 2005 and 2007 with Mitsubishi, in 2012, 2013 and 2021 with Mini and in 2016 and 2017 with Peugeot.
