N.R.: “I had a very good season. With Sven Qandt we agreed that I would participate in several races. I believe that to be a better approach. They are proper conditions, where we can better test the material and better prepare as driver and co-driver. And we won all the races in which we took part and that has allowed us to come to the Dakar with a certain piece of mind and a high level of confidence. It is vital when taking on a very difficult and wide-open race that his year will feature nearly 1000 more kilometers of timed sectors. For sure, I am aiming for victory. The arguments are clear: the car is good. We have improved the weight distribution. Along with Michel Perin we are a very, very good team and we will come full of confidence."

A.K.: “I felt emptiness after the finish of the Dakar 2013: "Well, that's it." All year we prepared to the Dakar, we counted days, and then it was suddenly all over. The cabin was silent; I looked at the guys who were astonished. Everyone had their own thoughts. Then we arrived at the park fermé, people greeted us, congratulated us and only at that moment you began to understand that all the dramatic twists and turns of the race had become history”.

“Having participated in all the races on this season's calendar, it all came back and more especially I have given myself what I need to return to the Dakar with the form I had before my crash in Morocco and my dislocated left shoulder. I am coming in with a lot of desire even though over the years my perspective of the rally has changed. I am competitive but the Dakar has become a very wide-open rally. You have to remain aware of this change and ride your own race and not try to control your adversaries. For sure, I want to win a 4th title. I haven't won it for a long time, but I know that it is by no means crazy to think of victory.”

I.C.: “I came close to taking first place last year. And for this Dakar I have prepared 100% to improve or at least equal my good result last year and return to the podium. This season I won the Desafio Inca in Peru, the Desafio del Desierto in Chile as well as other national races in Chile. I accentuated my training in the desert with trips to Copiapo, La Serena and Viña del Mar. What troubles me on this edition are the two days in Bolivia. Because if the cars and trucks aren't going it must mean that it is a difficult terrain. In any case, you have to get on with it and have to want to do it. I think that the arrival at Valparaiso will be fantastic. In addition to the Chileans there will be many Argentineans because it is a favorite vacation destination during this time of the year.”
