Carlos Sainz in the presentation in Arabia, but does not know if he will run

The Spaniard goes to the 'première' of the new era of the test in Riyadh, but has not yet renewed with Mini. I could go to Toyota with Fernando Alonso.

A new era of Dakar begins with the launching of the new test scenario, Saudi Arabia. Tomorrow will be presented in Riad the third era of the st hardest competition in the world of engine, and there will be one of the myths of the desert, Carlos Sainz. The double winner in 2010 and 2018 will go to the Arab capital, clear of their commitment with this his second sports life after his two world rally titles.

But the presence of Sainz in Riyadh does not mean that vaya to go to the next edition of the Dakar. The Spaniard has not yet defined his future, and in fact the option he had in his contract for continuing a year more with Mini has expired. In the German team have not yet made a decision in this regard, and therefore the two-time champion, who has just turned 57, is in expected wait.

Eso, rumors begin on a possible change of air a Toyota. The increasingly feasible arrival of his friend Fernando Alonso to Dakar with the Japanese brand could boost the transfer of Sainz to the brand with which he achieved his two world titles in 1990 and 1992. A 'pitch' that would give the Japanese sign a huge impact at national and international level. The squaring of the circle, with the dos best Spanish pilots of the history under the isma bandera.

Let's see what the Madrilenian counts tomorrow in Riyadh, where el Dakar begins its third era. After Africa and South America, the test makes the leap to Oriente Medio at the hands of its new 'captain' David Castera, which also debuts in the position as maximum responsible at this historic moment.
