Fernando Alonsoand his co-pilotMarc Coma(Toyota Gazoo Racing) have finished in the third position of the general of the Ula Neom Rally, which has been played in Saudi Arabia, so the Spaniard signs his first podium in a 'raid' before facing his first experience in the Rally Dakar
The Spanish couple, who came fourth to the fourth and last stage, has traced on board their Toyota Hilux more than six minutes apart with the emiratKhalid Al Qassimi(Peugeot), who came third last day and suffered a mechanical averaging that forced him to leave, to get on the third drawer of the podium.
In this way, the Spaniard is compensated for the experiences in the Lichtenburg 400 and the Rally of Morocco, where he did not achieve the expected results and encountered more problems than expected. "The last stage and the Rally ends. First podium rally! Thanks to these guys!" Alonso said in his social networks with a photo with his team.
The racers faced this last Saturday a last stage of 175 kilometers timed with final in Neom, which finally crowned the SaudiYazeed Al-Rajhi(Toyota) -which the Spaniard helped to get out of a dune on Saturday- as the winner of the rally, ahead of his compatriotYasir Bin Seaidan(MINI), which ended at 2:09.
