Sordo: Podium is the aim again.

Citroen number two driver Dani Sordo will be chasing his fourth podium in succession on the Rallye de France-Tour de Corse this coming weekend.

Sordo took another second place finish on his home event in Spain last Sunday, to add to the ones he notched up in New Zealand and Germany in August, and he is feeling particularly fired up ahead of the thirteenth round in the World Rally Championship.

The momentum is definitely with him too - and with an unbroken run of nine points finishes going right back to the Rally Argentina at the end of March, he should again be a real contender, especially as Corsica is on asphalt - his preferred surface.

"I thoroughly enjoyed myself at the wheel of my C4 WRC over the three days in Spain. It was amazingly quick and I can't wait for the competitive action to begin in Corsica," said Dani.

"As usual, we expect fierce competition, but I will give it my very best shot to achieve my objective which is another podium finish to secure more valuable championship points for Citroen."

Sordo has competed on the Rallye de France-Tour de Corse four times to date, finishing third both last year and the year before.

"Corsica calls for less of a circuit racing style [than Spain], but I don't have a problem with that. With the mountain on one side and steep drop-offs to the other, it isn't possible to cut corners, but that doesn't prevent us from getting up to very high speeds at times.

"I enjoy the Tour de Corse, even though it hasn't been all that happy an event for me. Hopefully, I will succeed in putting that situation right this time round," he summed-up.
