Dani Sordo, Citroen – Q&A

Dani Sordo looks forward to Rallye Germany and reflects on Citroen's decision to 'rest' him for Australia.
Q:
Finally, you're about to race again on tarmac. Will this be a new start for your season?

Dani Sordo:
We have only been able to test ourselves against our rivals on this surface at Monte-Carlo. And even then, almost all the roads were covered in snow. It's difficult to make real comparisons, but my third place was encouraging. It's no secret that I feel particularly at home this type of road surface. I know what is expected of me and I'm ready! I'm very pleased to be racing on this surface again.

Q:
What are your goals for Germany?

Dani Sordo:
There are three tarmac rallies coming up between now and the end of the season, and I know my chances of doing well are even higher on this surface. Germany is a rather particular round, with road surfaces that vary greatly from one stage to another. There are a lot of corners which can make the racing line quite dirty, and the weather is often unpredictable. I have already had some good results in these sorts of conditions and I'll be trying to fight for the win right from the word go.

Q:
Your programme was changed recently. Will the fact you are missing Rally Australia change your approach?

Dani Sordo:
The decision was taken jointly. It means I can skip the specific preparation needed for Australia and focus more effectively on the three tarmac rallies that are coming up between now and the end of the season. I want to be quick in Germany, France and Spain. I know I can win, and I know how strong this team is. I have everything I need to do the job.
