Reigning Dakar Rally champion Nasser Al-Attiyah and navigator Mathieu Baumel completed the gruelling 453-kilometre Stage 4 between Neom and Al Ula, posting a time just 2min 26sec slower than the leaders.
The pair were the fifth car to start the stage and they made most of their road position, posting competitive times throughout.
Despite coming into Stage 4 with a three-minute penalty imposed by officials on the previous stage, Nasser and Mathieu managed to halve their overall lead gap to just 3min 3sec.
