Qatar’s Nasser Saleh al-Attiyah and French partner, Mathieu Bommel, on Ford Fiesta R5 scored second place with a 1 minute, 10 seconds, 6 seconds per second difference, while Lebanese Rodolphe Asmar and partner Ziad Shehab, on Skoda Fabia R5 came in third place with a difference of 4 minutes, 7 seconds from first place.

Feghali scored the best time in the six stages on Saturday, with a chase from Attiyah, at a time when Asmar was pressing to catch them from afar.
