Sordo secures 'morale-boosting' second in Greece

Dani Sordo: I've been on a poor run of results... and so, second place means that we score points that we really needed.

Citroen's Dani Sordo took a morale-boosting second place finish on the Acropolis Rally last weekend and he has said he hopes the result will now allow him to 'reach new heights' in Sardinia in two weeks time.

Sordo had only scored two points in the last two events and after the poor results in Portugal and Argentina was keen to stop the rot, something he duly achieved by taking the runners-up spot.

It was his best result of the year and his first rostrum since finishing third on the season opening, Rallye Monte Carlo. It was also the twentieth time he has finished as runner-up in 104 WRC rallies.

"We didn't fight for the win, we had to be content with driving in the lines without taking any unnecessary risks," Sordo said. "I've been on a poor run of results, finishing out of the points in three of the last four rounds. So, second place is a morale-boosting result and means that we score points that we really needed.

"I hope that this result will enable me to feel more confident and reach new heights, starting with Rally Sardegna."

Citroen boss Yves Matton added: "Dani produced a performance entirely in line with our expectations.

"We asked him to secure the best possible result without taking any risks, and that exactly what he did, from start to finish."
