Is that two fires in one hole or are there two holes on fire?
Boy oh boy! How unfortunate the whole affair and how uncomfortable for Nani Roma. It's worth a translation but I can't do it fast enough. Basycally he says that he's not in his position by chance that they have worked very very hard to be there and that the pression is a lot and that he doesn't deserve the whole thing. He is not clear on the team orders, says that he didn't think there were clear tema orders, just a recommendation to go slower [and this shows an umprobable naivity] and then goes on sayin that there always were team orders in Dakar, mentions the Mistus, Jead Todt's coin, and even himself last year. He says that soem Dakars were settled on rest day. He referes to Peterhansel Alphand and Lavigne as Mr. Peterhansel, Mr Alphand and Mr Lavigne and pulls the "I'm spanish and this is a french race" card. WHAT A MESS!
A lot of interesting and contradicting stuff. At first he said that the public has read more into this than it is, nothing fishy about yesterday. He waived Peter on when twice he came close because Nani had lost time, fair and square.
BUT then he says that team orders always existed and he has seen winners being decided on rest day, that he always respected team orders and that he has sacrificed his race on team orders.
And then, yes, he mentions the French - ASO thing, Poor Spaniards get screwed all the time...
^^^ This is a shame for Nani... as I wrote earlier, wwhether his first or second now... the whole deal gets a * next to it.
Yup - MINI screwing both their top driver's reputations...
