The pilot of Peugeot, Sebastien Loeb commented on his failure in the first stage of “Dakar-2018”.
For Sebastien had problems with the brakes, which at the finish of the debut day of the rally-RAID he lost the championship leader Nasser al-Attia five and a half minutes.
“The brakes failed on the third kilometer of the race, after which I had to improvise. Well, that first day we had to overcome only 31 kilometres, said Loeb. – I really was driving very slowly, because such a breakdown is difficult to attack the dunes.
Literally 200 meters from the entrance to the dune I had to take my foot off the gas pedal to avoid additional risk. The start of the competition turned out for us difficult.”
