Spaniard, Dani Sordo, will begin this weekend's Rally Italia Sardegna with victory on his mind. He took his second WRC victory at the event last season, and will be aiming for a similar result. “This is a very special rally for me, with some incredible memories from last year’s event," Sordo explained. "I will never forget the feeling of taking that victory with Hyundai Motorsport and I hope we can repeat it this year! "The stages are normally quite slippery on the first pass because there is a lot of loose gravel on the surface; this can benefit those crews starting further back on the order."

This plays into Sordo's hands - he will be starting from tenth on the road. "The second pass is much more aggressive on the tyres, offering greater grip levels. "I tested the car recently and had a good feeling, so the objective is victory,” he added. Team Principal, Andrea Adamo, echoed Sordo's wishes for a strong result. “We know the championship fight is incredibly close during this pandemic-affected season, so we have to approach Sardinia with the target of another competitive performance," he said. "Thankfully, we have three crews who have all demonstrated their ability to be fast there. We welcome back Dani and Carlos for this event, which holds wonderful memories for us all from last year."
