“The race is not over, things can change very quickly and so much remains to be done until the end.” - Caudrelier

Skipper, Charles Caudrelier talks about the re-shuffle on the leaderboard and what it means for Dongfeng Race Team.

“Taking the top spot in the overall ranking is of course good news for Dongfeng Race Team. It’s a big psychological boost for us. It gives us momentum and fuels our hopes of final victory. MAPFRE has lost the lead in particular circumstances which are also part of the race. We dismasted on the last leg three years ago and we lost a lot of ground in the overall standings. This reminds us all that the race is not over, that things can change very quickly, especially on a double-points leg, and that so much remains to be done until the end.” - Charles Caudrelier
