The only reason sordo has lasted so long in the works team is because spain is an important market for citroen. Dani has never shown outright pace for over one day hence why he hasn't won any rallies. He will be too afraid to risk fighting for victory this season as he knows his p45 awaits at the end of the year as ogier will be much better than him after a few more tarmac outings

Exactly. dani has had plenty of chances to push for victory over the last couple of seasons and has either not produced the pace or has crashed out when trying to win. Look at the way latvala was under so much pressure but still was able to win rallies over the last 2.5 years.

He's a decemt driver but was dropped to the junior team for a reason.

And yes, the comment about car sales is correct, Spain is a big market for them.

This is just some kind of lame excuse, I cant believe it even came from Sordo. You cant drive a Factory WRC car at even 80% let alone flat out without total concentration

sometimes when a Rally driver goes off he says he momentarily lost concentration which is plausable, but you dont drop time and loose out on a ptential victory and say that you simply lost concentration

that doesnt wash with me, the sad fact is that Danny is very fast and even capable of taking victory on both surfaces but just never seems to string it together long enough to win an event

Any driver who can post 2 or 3 fastest times a Rally is capable of Winning, the rest is in their head. They need to believe
