Bruno Saby, the 1993 winner, took the second stage of the Paris-Dakar rally over the rocky desert tracks of northern Morocco yesterday.

The stage was delayed because of thick fog on the north African coast, where the drivers landed after a night crossing of the Mediterranean from Motril in southern Spain.

Last year's winner, another Frenchman, Pierre Lartigue, was third fastest in the first Citroen ahead of the veteran Finn, Timo Salonen, who retained the overall lead, driving another Citroen.
