Sordo received some help in securing his podium position, as Hyundai’s Thierry Neuville and Toyota’s Takamoto Katsuta were forced to retire on Saturday.

“This was a really tough rally with very difficult special stages. We didn’t have the speed on some sections,” Sordo said.

“However, other drivers had problems, so we got the podium spot that way. It’s not a bad thing,” Sordo continued.

Rally Sardinia poses a tough challenge for both drivers and cars.

“This is a very demanding rally for the cars and drivers. Really tough,” Sordo said.

“I just tried to do my best for the team and collect as many points as possible.”

As a part-time driver for Hyundai, Sordo doesn’t have any other rallies officially scheduled for this season. There has been long-standing speculation that Sordo’s career might be nearing its end.

Sordo is one of the most experienced drivers in the WRC. He couldn’t say much about his future after Rally Sardinia.

“I don’t know. We’ll see about that later,” Sordo agreed to say.

Rally Sardinia was won by Hyundai’s Ott Tänak, who beat Toyota’s Sebastien Ogier by just 0.2 seconds. The WRC continues at the end of June in Poland.
