WRC Rallye Deutschland: 1-2 will give Hyundai added momentum - Sordo

Dani Sordo takes his first podium and his first points of 2014 in Germany after misfortune on his three other WRC outings with Hyundai
Dani Sordo says Hyundai's 1-2 finish on Rallye Deutschland will give the team added momentum for the rest of the season.

Hyundai has returned to the WRC this year with the new i20 WRC and in Germany came through to take a dream double podium, with Thierry Neuville heading home Sordo after Volkswagen duo Sebastien Ogier and Jari-Matti Latvala and also Citroen's Kris Meeke all squandered the chance to win.

Reflecting on the event, Sordo added that for once he was pleased with second place, one year on from his maiden WRC win in Trier.

“This is a great result for the whole team and a testament to all the people who work so hard in the team and at the factory,” said Sordo.

“To get our first 1-2 is fantastic. Normally, I would prefer to be the one scoring the win but I am happy with second and I am pleased for Thierry.

“It has been a tough rally so we were focussed on getting to the finish safely. I have to say the team has really developed a lot since I was last competing, both in terms of the operations and the car performance. We can really use this result to continue our momentum and our learning in our first year.”

Sordo is now hoping to return to the Hyundai line-up for Rallye de France in October.

“I think I will be back in France,” he confirmed.

“So, Thierry, in France, it is my turn [to win]...!”
