Citroen's Dani Sordo is looking forward to Rally Poland this week and he is firmly focused on putting his Greek disappointment behind him.

Sordo reckoned he could have won the Acropolis Rally two weeks ago had he not hit a rock on day two and damaged the suspension on his Citroen C4 WRC - something that dropped him right out of contention.

Now he wants to capitalise on the progress he has shown on gravel and put his Citroen back on the rostrum, a feat he has already managed three times this year - in Ireland, Argentina and Portugal.

"I can't wait to get back behind the wheel of my Citroen C4 WRC to try to put the disappointment I suffered in Greece behind me," confirmed the Spaniard.

"I really felt I could have won the Acropolis Rally; everything seemed to be flowing so naturally.

"It's now up to us to bounce back, while at the same time bearing in mind that Citroen is above all in need of Manufacturers' points."

Asked specifically about this weekend's event, which has this year gained full World Rally Championship status, after being one of the mainstay rounds of the European Championship, Sordo added that from what he has seen so far it all looks very good.

"Rally Poland looks a bit like Finland, but narrower, and with fewer jumps," he continued. "The surface is softer, too, with a high number of sandy portions.

"I like sandy conditions and I think it has the makings of being a great World Rally Championship event."
