It was logical. It was not necessary to eat a lot of the head to get it right, although as always, you had to wait for the official confirmation from the team Hyundai. It arrived this Friday: Dani Sordo to take the wheel of the Hyundai team’s third unit at the 2021 Rally Italia in June. There was no doubt that this would be the case. Dani has two consecutive wins (2019 and 2020) on the gravel sections of Sardinia with the Hyundai i20, and of course, it will once again defend its hegemonic position on the Sardinian island.
It will do so during the weekend of June 6, after competing in the Rally de Portugal, also on land, the weekend of May 23.
With the Portuguese and Italian events, the Spanish will add three participations in the WRC World Championship this year after starting his partial program with the South Koreans in the first round of the course, in Monte Carlo, unable to shine as I wanted in very difficult conditions. The Spanish, in the assistance of Monaco, said at that time that he would like to compete in Croatia, new quote from this course, but finally Hyundai opted for a Craig Breen who did not have his best weekend in the Croatian race, already past. At that time, he also said that he would like to return to Portugal, said and done. And then it will come Sardinia, place where he will seek his third consecutive victory in those lands accompanying Thierry Neuville and Ött Tänak, which will be piloted by the other two Asian machines.
“It is always a pleasure to run on the magic island! I’m going to give everything to try to win there for the third time in three years. “Dani commented on social networks, happy to announce his return to his most beloved island.
