Felipe Massa is continuing his Formula E recruitment drive by suggesting Fernando Alonso should give it a try.

The Brazilian has been enjoying his new career challenge with Venturi and recently claimed more ex-Formula 1 drivers will make the move to the all-electric series.

Since ending his F1 career after 2018, the double world champion has been a target with Formula E CEO Alejandro Agag and Massa also previously speaking of the possibility.

And, as Alonso prepares to attempt the Dakar Rally with Toyota in Saudi Arabia next month, Felipe has once again brought it up.

"It will be a great experience for him and something different for all the fans," he told Spain's Soy Motor of his ex-Ferrari teammate's latest project.

"It will be very difficult, it is a great challenge for any driver, so it will be great to see him compete there. I would not do it, but it will be great to see him there.

"I think it will be easier for me to convince Alonso to go to Formula E for him to take me to the Dakar!" Massa smiled.

"I think it is possible for Alonso to come to Formula E in the future. With Fernando, anything is possible."

Perhaps the firmest indication of Fernando himself potentially showing an interest, however, came from Sebastien Buemi, a former Formula E champions who raced alongside Alonso in the WEC.

"We spoke a lot about Formula E, and he's been following it very closely," the Swiss claimed.
