Spanish veteran Carlos Sainz won the Dakar Rally in Argentina on yesterday, January 20, as Peugeot bowed out with their third win in a row.

The victory, ahead of Qatar’s two times winner Nasser al-Attiyah in a Toyota, handed Sainz his second title in the gruelling endurance race that switched to South America from Africa in 2009 for security reasons.

The double World Rally Champion previously won in 2010 with Volkswagen.

Peugeot’s works team, who won the previous two Dakars with Frenchman Stephane Peterhansel, had already announced their departure after this year’s edition.
