Glyn Hall, Team Principal: “It was another good day for Toyota today, with Yazeed Al Rajhi winning the stage and Nasser coming in second. We took a little bit of time off Stéphane Peterhansel, but not nearly enough, of course. Shameer and Dennis had a good day. Giniel and Alex got held up in the dust. Nasser and Mathieu drove a clean stage to stay with Stéphane. But I know Stéphane well, and I know that he’ll control the race now that he has a comfortable lead, so we shouldn’t get too hopeful that the results will change. Having said that, we have Hilux dominating many of the top positions with just two days to go.”
Nasser Al-Attiyah (No. 301): “Today was again not an easy day and we are frustrated that we couldn’t get more time from Stéphane Peterhansel. We tried to manage the stage and we came through without any problems. I’m happy to be here in Stage 10 and tomorrow’s stage looks quite long and different in terms of terrain. Everybody says it will be a difficult one, but we have to do our best because this may be our last chance to make a difference in the outcome of the race.”
Giniel de Villiers (No. 304): “Today was not too bad as we didn’t have any punctures. With that said, we did have to change one wheel, but that was due to a bubble in the sidewall and we did it in a decontrol, so it didn’t cost us any time. We did lose about a minute each on two occasions, having left the track and ending up in the camel grass. Yazeed Al Rajhi came past us there, so we had to fall back a bit in the dust. Other than that, we had a really nice and clean day and I’m happy with the result.”
Shameer Variawa (No. 330): “We had another clean run today and it was a good day for us. We had to deal with a lot of dust having to overtake five or six slower competitors which always takes time. About 80% of the stage had rocks so you have to plan when to overtake. But we did okay, the car ran well and we came through without any problems.”
