Fernando Alonso will do a test with the Toyota for the Dakar

Yes, you read correctly, Al-Attiyah has confirmed that Fernando Alonso will do a test in April with the Toyota car for the Dakar rally . Something that seemed unthinkable has now been confirmed, and even if it's just a test, he already flirted with the Sainz family with rally cars, and I suppose he did it with a view to this test so as not to go completely new. And of course, if you do this test it is probably not for nothing, but with a view to the future.

For now Fernando Alonso's participation in the legendary race has not been confirmed, but who knows if in the future we could see Fernando also try his luck in this competition so different from the cars and prototypes he has been driving all his life. What we do know is that both Nasser Al-Attiyah and Alonso will do that test in Qatar together.

For the test they will use the Toyot Hilux , and Nasser will be the Asturian's teacher in his first contact with this car for the Dakar on April 17 and 22. It seems that to go well and like the kind of driving that is needed for these cars, could be a foray into the test in 2020, but nothing for this year exceeded what we already know: WEC, Daytona, Indy, and still need to see if it's something else.

As far as he would have admitted, it seems that Fernando Alonso would like to carry out this tough test in the future. Therefore, the Triple Crown is too small to Fernando that will surely surprise us with several different mythical races. At the moment, we only have confirmed some of the ones that will be done more immediately in 2019, but I'm sure there will be more, maybe even Formula E ...
