Sordo pleased with podium

Dani Sordo said he was delighted to finish second on Rally Argentina, as the Spaniard moved up to second in the championship standings.

The Citroen driver had led the event on the opening day but slipped down to third on the second morning, before the retirement of Mikko Hirvonen promoted Sordo into second behind team leader Sebastien Loeb.

From that point onwards, Sordo was unchallenged as he helped Citroen to a 1-2 finish and he was delighted with his display.

“It's a very good result for me and for Citroen,” he said. I'm now second in the WRC. I'm really happy with my performance.

“I felt comfortable throughout the weekend. This is our second 1-2 finish of the year and my intention now is to defend my second place in the championship.”

While Sordo admits his confidence is increasing as he seeks to secure his first win, he conceded that the next event in Italy isn't amongst his favourites.

“I will continue to go faster and faster, but the next rally is not my favourite,” he said. “It's very slippery, but I will try our course to continue to push a bit more.”
