Stephane Peterhansel had mechanical problems today on his Peugeot 30085DKR Maxi just after passing by WP3.   The reports coming from Bolivia say that Peterhansel has problems in the suspension of the car, and was forced to stop to repair and continue the race.
At the moment Peterhansel is already dropping in to the classification and it is not yet know if he will be able to continue the race or not.  This was a particular bad day to suffer problems, because today is the 1st part of the Marathon stage, which means that by the end of the day the mechanics will not be allowed to repair the car.  All interventions should be done by the pilots.
Luckily for Peterhansel, Cyril Despres who is behind him is now working as an fast assistance car after his very own problems a few days ago, and stopped to help repair the problems.
With this situation, Carlos Sainz was the winner of today's stage.
