Alonso sure is missing his seat in F1. He's changing wheels out in the desert. Hanging tough in 20th place:
On day two, Dakar rookie Alonso had long delays when he broke a wheel and as a result, dropped down to 53rd due to the incident but has since then made steady progress, ending the stage 13th, and now lies 20th in the standings two hours and 50 minutes behind the overall leader who is fellow Spaniard and friend Carlos Sainz Snr. in the Mini.
