A crash hindered Fernando Alonso in stage 10 at the Dakar Rally, but the veteran driver continued to race without a windshield.

Fernando Alonso drives without windshield after big Dakar Rally crash


Fernando Alonso is determined to make up ground at the Dakar Rally after suffering a significant crash on Wednesday.

Alonso's vehicle was without a windshield after dramatically flipping down a sand dune at high speed.

The two-time Formula One world champion continued driving without a windshield after an incident which halted him for over an hour. 

"All good and ready!! Looking forward to recovering ground," Alonso wrote on Instagram ahead of Thursday's resumption of the race.

Alonso and co-driver Marc Coma finished Wednesday's stage 10 in 55th position out of the 64 runners, one hour and 17 minutes off the pace.

They are faring better in the overall standings, though, sitting in 14th place. 

Stage 10 came to an early halt after organisers halted proceedings 345km into the day's racing due to strong winds.
