2022 Dakar: Danilo Petrucci Ends Stage 4 At Third Place

Former MotoGP rider, Danilo Petrucci managed to overcome his frustration to complete the fourth stage at third place.

The Italian had to sit out the second stage of the race after his KTM 450 Rally suffered mechanical problems.

He then bounced back to complete the 3rd stage at 22nd place before securing a podium in stage four of the race.

The ex-Ducati and KTM rider secured a third-place finish behind Pablo Quintanilla and Joan Barreda, who came out on top with his Honda.

The result saw Petrucci emerge as the best rookie of the day despite crossing the finish line with a 7-minute gap to Barreda.

Nevertheless, in terms of overall standings, Sam Sunderland (GASGAS Factory Racing) retains his lead of the race ahead of Matthias Walkner (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) and Adrien van Beveren (Monster Energy Yamaha Rally Team).
