Having previously won the prologue and the first stage, Nasser Al-Attiyah (Toyota Hilux Overdrive) also won the third stage in the Rally of Andalusia on Saturday. The Qatarees was 1:48 faster than his Saudi teammate Yazeed Al Rajhi. Carlos Sainz finished third at 3:17.
In the standings, Al-Attiyah increased his lead over Sainz to 4:43. Guillaume de Mevius and Tom Colsoul (OT3) finished sixth and move up to fifth place in the standings. Grégoire de Mevius and André Leyh (Henrard Dunbee) finished eighteenth. In the ranking they remain twelfth.
Al-Attiyah was the third to go on track and took full advantage of that advantage. Sainz, winner of the second stage on Friday, was the first to lose just over three minutes on the track. With a bonus of 4:43, Al-Attiyah has the overall victory up for grabs.
