He has proved that he has simply been overlooked by Team Managers, he was only 2 seconds off Mikko on the final splits of Oninpohja who broke his own record from the previous year.

I would imagine that Citroen must be seriously thinking about replacing Sordo with Kris after that. He hasn't been to Finland for 7 years, he hasn't done a WRC event for 18 months and he was in a comfortable 5th place and right on the pace all Rally, beating Sordo by over a minute on one stage

By Comparison Sordo might as well of been in an WRC2 Car, no wonder he didn't go off, I would rather impress and go off than disappoint and finish an hour later like Sordo - lol

Kris should be seriously considered for a Factory seat with that performance, such a shame he rolled so close to the end of the Rally, glad they were ok though. Hope he is back in a DS3 real soon.
