The situation is quite bad, the engine lost all its compression today was a nightmare for me to manage to pass some sections of the stage. I need to get the engine rebuilt if i want to have a chance to finish, i have the parts but have no clue on how to put hands on the TM engine.

This really surprises me that anyone would attempt the Dakar with little to no mechanical knowledge or a support. Today I'm sure will be the hardest day to find a mechanic with nothing else to do, and can help him. Unless it's from somebody who is "out"...but still running support course.

Caselli's was probably missed WP's with his early nav errors - will check the regs to see what levels of penalty you get for what

Or may be nobody doesn't want to help him because he is not well prepared ?
This is an interesting point and one I've thought about as well. Manuel is great, somehow he pulls it together, seemingly always at the 11th hour, and I applaud his tireless effort, but I do wonder if what seems like (from the outside at least) his constant search for a helping hand, is wearing on some of the other teams or riders?

Yes, Mauro Sant had a big hand in the development of the TM kit, would seem a natural resource but perhaps he is too busy tending to Joan Barreda.

Do you know how much it costs to hire support with another team?

That's weird. The swedish listings (http://tv.eurosport.se/tvschedule.shtml) still show 23:00 GMT+1, and the UK listings show 23:00 GMT. I'm guessing one of them isn't quite up to date. We'll see.
