JEDDAH: Nasser Al-Attiyah’s caution  paid off on Monday when he gained on Dakar Rally leader Stephane Peterhansel by three minutes.

Al-Attiyah cracked the whip on the eighth stage from Sakaka to NEOM in northern Saudi Arabia, a day after a marathon stage. The Qatari won it, his fifth stage win of this Dakar. 

Defending champion Carlos Sainz was second, and Peterhansel third after losing his way twice at the end of the 375-km (233-mile) special.
