Sordo happy to lead

Dani Sordo said he was pleased to emerge as the man to beat following the opening day of Rally Argentina, with the Citroen driver set to take a slender lead of just over five seconds into Saturday's second leg.

The Spaniard admitted he had taken it a little too easy during the morning stages at the wheel of his Citroen C4 WRC but headed into the afternoon loop well in contention for the lead; duly securing top spot with the fastest time on SS6.

He then dropped to second behind Mikko Hirvonen on SS7, but was quicker than the Finn on both SS8 and SS9 to end the day at the head of the pack – although he now faces the prospect of playing road sweeper on day two.

“I'm not going to turn my nose up at being in the lead of Rally Argentina!” he said. “The crowd is even more fired up than ever. I know it won't be easy tomorrow, but then rallying is never easy. I will only have one option and that is to attack.

“Today, Sebstien was first on the road and now he is third, so of course I'll try to lose as little time as possible. It's important to learn how to drive first on the road, maybe one day I'll be there a little more often.”
