El Andalusia Rally 2021 rekindled the duel that they have maintained for several years Nasser Al-Attiyah y Carlos Sainz. The flames began to burn last Sunday when a video was known in which the Qatari was seen cutting off the road in the last stage of the Andalusian race. The infraction was penalized with two minutes, something that did not prevent him from winning the test.
Sainz, who came second, was not satisfied with the sanction that was imposed on his rival and he let it be seen on his social networks: he criticized Al-Attiyah and also the sports authorities. "A shame to see these images from the last special. A rider in Nasser's class does not need a short cut on a route to fight for victory ”, El Matador explained in his social networks.

Al-Attiyah's response was immediate and forceful. Unlike the Spaniard who made a whole exhibition to make his position clear, the Qatari tagged him in his networks and showed a video in which he saw the Madrilenian cutting his way in the Baja Spain 2007. "Carlos made a great cut ... Good job Carlos", wrote.
It is worth noting that in certain off-road competitions, despite the characteristics of this specialty, competitors travel on trails that are forbidden to cut or for safety reasons or because they cross private areas.
