To this end and since he will soon be participating in the Silk Road Rally, the Russian driver assures us that he is training “better.” He said: “In three months, I have done more training than the past few years, I will be able to drive tomorrow. If the opportunity arises, I will be prepared. However, the current context should not help him achieve his ambitions.
