Dani Sordo will return to the Citroen fold on Rallye de France this week and the Spaniard is determined to build on his debut WRC win in Germany.

Sordo sat out the last event in Australia, with Britain's Kris Meeke drafted in to replace him. However, he will be back behind the wheel of a DS3 WRC car for the eleventh round in the 2013 World Rally Championship, albeit running under the Abu Dhabi Citroen Total WRT banner, as Sebastien Loeb and Mikko Hirvonen will compete for the 'A' team.

"I hope that Rally Deutschland was just one stage [in my career] and I'll have the opportunity to enjoy that [winning] feeling again," said Sordo, who finished as runner up in Alsace in both 2010 and 2011.

"I really like Rallye de France. It is an extremely fast course - in fact, this is the rally at which we go quickest all season, with a top speed of over 200kph. Whether it stays dry or it rains, I don't mind either way."

"Obviously, the rally will be special because we'll be alongside Seb and Daniel [Elena - his co-driver] for the last [and fourth] time [this year]," Sordo added.

"Although the transition has taken place gradually this season, it will still be a special moment for the World Rally Championship."
