A tough start of the Dakar Rally for Toyota GAZOO Racing with 13 punctures in the team. Good news is that all the cars had no problems, they are still in the race! Nasser Al Attiyah was leading all day till 80 km from the end when he had 3 punctures in 20 km, then he had to take care. Bernhard ten Brinke had a good run. Fernando Alonso did a great job in his first Dakar stage despite 2 punctures. Giniel de Villiers had a tough day with 2 punctures very early on then a third with 150 km to go, so he had also to take care. Let’s go to stage 2 with a lot of gravel!
