Al-Attiyah Andalucía Rally 2021In a video broadcast on social networks it is noted how Al-Attiyah cut his way on a small straight which led to a return to the left.

Anticipating that this type of situation could happen after the 2020 experience, the organization had made it clear that this type of infraction would end a harsh sanction. However, this did not affect the final result of the Andalusian test.

Al-Attiyah beat the Spaniard by two minutes and 43 seconds Carlos Sainz (MINI), but after receiving a two-minute penalty, a time much higher than the time he gained by cutting the road, he remained at the top of the general classification.
