One day away from the end of the competition, the fifth stage will be – for sure – the fastest of all, but not the simplest. Some of the sections are very demanding in terms of driving so it will be necessary not to be over-confident.
It will be one long section that will have different surfaces. There are firm and fast ones, also sandy and twisty, and there are changes of path which results in an intense use of the road book necessary.
At the beginning is twisty, with many options but only one is correct so the speed of the section will provide the shrewdness to drive from very early. After the fast section, there are jumps on a narrow path surrounded by estuaries which will mean precision so as to not to make mistakes that will mean losing too much time.
When the first sandy section comes, the road book becomes essential so as to no go into the wrong path and make it to the second fast section, find the right crossroads and go back to another sandy section.
The long and final part combines fast sections in narrow roads with twisty and loose ones which will be the key as the competition moves forward. This day, surely, no one will experience the same thing all along this stage, each competitor will cover for it in a different way and there is where they will find differences in the overall classification of the day.
