(Reuters) - Fernando Alonso has teamed up with five-times Dakar Rally winner Marc Coma as the double Formula One world champion prepares for a likely entry in the Saudi-hosted event next January with Toyota.

He first competed in the Dakar in 2002, winning with KTM, before the event switched from Africa to South America for safety reasons.



Coma, a winner in the motorcycle category, stood down as Dakar sporting director in 2018 and is acting as Alonso’s co-driver.



Alonso has yet to confirm he will enter the 2020 Dakar, regarded as the world’s toughest motorsport challenge which is moving to the deserts of Saudi Arabia for the first time, but it looks increasingly likely.

The two Spaniards have been training together in Namibia and Poland and this weekend are competing in the Lichtenburg 400, a round of the South African cross country series.

The 38-year-old left Formula One last year.

I’ve been able to learn so much from him about rally raid thanks to his wealth of knowledge and experience,” said Alonso in a Toyota statement.
