Why Alonso is already exceeding expectations in Dakar bid

By:

How significant was Fernando Alonso's first cross-country rallying podium on a Saudi Arabian event last weekend? Very. The next leg of his post-F1 quest for versatile glory is going very well so far...

When Fernando Alonso climbed aboard the Toyota Hilux with Marc Coma at his right hand less than three months ago, no one could have convinced the double Formula 1 world champion that it would take him so little time to collect his first rally raid podium trophy.

The South African division of Toyota's factory Gazoo Racing programme - which is responsible for the Dakar Rally effort - didn't even appear likely to give Alonso the opportunity to fight for actual results before his debut on the Dakar Rally itself in January 2020.
