Not to mention these guys rarely do anything their not told to do over the radio anymore these days. They DS's have TV's in the car, they have the commisares motorbikes giving them the splits. They can all do the math in their heads as to what speed is needed over the remaining course to either stay away, or to catch the break.
If they Tell Aitor he has to keep it above xxkmh, and he can do that on the tops, he probably would. But 22 seconds is pretty damn close.

He may have been cramping, or having trouble breathing in a full aero tuck also.

There are a lot of factors, but the bottom line is, it was enough.
