“Iam very very happy with the 1-2 Dalbit team finish… It was a fierce battle and quite exciting that we were swapping the leadership with Alastair considering that he was first on the road,” said Tundo. Cavenagh was all smiles. “This was really close. We pushed the car knowing that we had to be very careful and from the mood in first stage we knew it was going to be very fast, so we were level headed,” said Alastair.
