Sordo keen to retain second

Dani Sordo says he is hoping to retain his second place in the World Rally Championship standings as the series heads back to Europe for the sixth round of the year.

The Spaniard moved up to second place after finishing as runner-up to Citroen team-mate Sebastien Loeb last time out in Argentina, with Mikko Hirvonen's retirement allowing Sordo to move a point ahead of the Ford driver.

That second place was Sordo's third podium finish of the year as the Spaniard continues to aid Citroen in its quest to wrap up the manufacturers' title but he admitted that he was now also keen to try and retain his own position in the drivers' standings as well.

"I see this round as a big test following my fifth place on last year's event,” he said. “That wasn't such a great result for me.

"This season is a bit special because I sense I am making progress on all the different types of surface we encounter in the championship. If I can keep that up in Sardinia, I think I will be able to take the fight to Mikko. Being second in the championship hasn't changed my approach in any way, but it's true that I would like to hold on to second place..."
