(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANATEQ QATAR CROSS-COUNTRY RALLY WINNER, NASSER AL-ATTIYAH, SAYING: "Today was really not an easy day for everybody, but we won today.

This was a great result for me and the championship.

Yeh we are quite happy to win the Qatar Rally." 7.

AL-ATTIYAH AND BAUMEL CLIMBING ON TOP OF THEIR TOYOTA HILUX CAR TO CELEBRATE STORY: Four-time FIA World Cup Rally winner Nasser Al-Attiyah got his 2020 campaign off to the perfect start by securing victory in the opening Manateq Qatar Cross-Country Rally on Thursday (February 27).

Al-Attiyah, who is chasing a first World Cup rally crown since 2017, won four of five stages alongside French co-driver Baumel to secure overall victory in his home country for the seventh time in nine seasons.

Al-Attiyah and Baumel triumphed with a winning margin of one hour 31 minutes, 40 seconds despite finishing the final stage with two flat tyres.

Victory in Lusail gives the Qatari the perfect start in the five-round series which resumes next month with the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge.

The Toyota Gazoo pair held a lead in excess of one hour heading into Thursday's stage five and did enough to cruise through with Yazeed Al-Rajhi and Michael Orr finishing second overall for Overdrive Racing.

Poland's Jakub Przygonski and German navigator Timo Gottschalk battled back from a near two-hour time loss on day two to secure the final podium place on their first appearance together in a Toyota - completing a podium sweep of Toyota Hilux cars.
