Sainz’s to lose


Rallying: Toyota driver Nasser AlAttiyah won the penultimat­e stage of the Dakar Rally on Friday, while Carlos Sainz took advantage of a crash by defending champion Stephane Peterhanse­l to increase his overall lead and boost his chances of winning the world’s toughest rally. Al-Attiyah finished the 369-kilometre stage between San Juan and Cordoba, Argentina, in 2 hours, 53 minutes. Peterhanse­l’s crash ruled out any chance of a comeback for another victory for the man who has won more Dakars than anyone.
