Dani Sordo could be poised to complete the line-up for Hyundai's return to the World Rally Championship in 2014, following an inadvertent slip-up by one of the marque's distributors.
Although Hyundai Motorsport has yet to confirm anything officially, Hyundai Spain's Twitter
feed briefly claimed that Sordo would 'run with Hyundai on the Monte Carlo Rally and other rounds of the world championship'.
The faux pas
suggests that the Spaniard would be the team's tarmac specialist alongside the already confirmed Thierry Neuville and Juho Hanninen. Neuville is slated for a full campaign in the new i20 WRC, while Hanninen has a partial programme, expected to focus on loose surfaces.
Sordo had also been linked with a possible return to Citroen, although the French team is not expected to make an announcement regarding its line-up until 16 December. He could now be confirmed at Hyundai during the team's planned launch in Germany next week.
