Citroen number two driver Daniel Sordo will re-start under the SupeRally on day two of the Corona Rally Mexico.

Sordo retired from the opening leg on the very first stage when he hit a rock just a few kilometres from start of the 22.96 kilometre-run through Alfaro 1. The impact broke his front left suspension and he was immediately forced out.

"I don't know what happened," Sordo reported back at service in the Poliforum exhibition centre. "I was keeping to the line made by previous competitors through a left-hand corner, but there must have been a rock because the wishbone broke.

"It's bitterly disappointing. Up to that point, we had found a good pace and our split times were looking good."

Sordo will now rejoin the fold on Saturday morning under the SupeRally format in a bid to try and claim a few manufacturers' points.
