With just two previous WRC starts to his name, Khalid Al Suwaidi will use the 2016 campaign to improve his experience and, with that in mind, he has recruited veteran co-driver Giovanni Bernacchini to partner him in a Ford Fiesta R5.

The Qatari made his driving debut in 2006 and his career until now has been predominantly focused on rallies in his native Middle East driving Mitsubishi Lancers, Subaru Imprezas and Ford Fiestas.

He has finished in the top five of the FIA Middle East Championship on four occasions, with a best of third in 2015, and claimed the runner-up spot in the Qatar Championship in 2013.
