Respect for him giving the Dakar campaign a go, but I'm not putting any money on him being NEAR the front within 4 years (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yazeed_Al-Rajhi). "In 2011 he contested seven WRC rounds, but retired from six of them."

He is favored to win the Hail Rally (http://www.arabnews.com/news/445630), which he won last year (four of five last events to be exact). First year for bikes and quads, makes me wish I was back in Riyadh.

Yazeed and Winocq Crash Out of Ha'il Rally
They crashed heavily in the sand dune 50 kms into the final stage. The Hummer landed on all four wheels with a hard impact and moved a few meters before stopping. Via his Twitter account in King Khalid Hospital Ha’il, Al-Rajhi declared that both he and his co-driver, Frenchman Alex Winocq, had each suffered one broken vertebrae following the impact.
