Sella, who will celebrate his 18th birthday next week, amazed the world of motorsports by winning the event, which is widely considered one of the toughest in the world. Sella took the lead at the beginning of the race and maintained it nearly the entire race.






In an interview with Ynet at the end of the race, Sella said, "The excitement is huge, it's unbelievable. It's going to take me a long time to digest it. I wasn't thinking about winning at all. I thought maybe if I'm lucky I can finish among the first, but I didn't think it would happen."
