Sordo still uncertain for his 2022 plans

Dani Sordo is still uncertair for what he will do next year, but he wants to continue competing in World Rally Championship as he feels that he can be very competitive.

The Spaniard driver has won three times in his WRC career with two of them as an Hyundai driver.

According to the quotes of Andrea Adamo, the last one is thinking to change the policy of Hyundai next season and to have only three drivers in the squad instead of four drivers.

It is noteworthy that Sordo is tipped to join Toyota in 2022 as Sebastien Ogier will retire at the end of this season and he will participate in a selected number of rallies next year, so there is an available seat for a driver who will share the third Yaris with the current WRC champion.

However, Teemu Suninen and Esapekka Lappi are the other potential canditates for the Toyota seat in 2022, but the last one is most likely to sign a contract with the Japanese team.

"At the moment, I don’t know what I will do", Sordo said when he was asked by DirtFish whether he had a deal for 2022, but insisted his desire was to continue driving in the WRC.

"I want to be competitive. 

"The day I am not competitive, I will not drive, because I don’t like that.

"I like to fight and I like to drive rally cars, but I like to be at the top.

"The day I feel like I’m pushing really hard and all is good, and I am not fighting for the good positions, of course I will stop. 

"But for the moment, maybe next year I hope to do some more rallies.

"I think I’m competitive.

"In some rallies I’m competitive, on this rally [the Acropolis] I was not really good. 

"But it’s like this, it’s why I don’t do all the championship, why I’m not on all the rallies".
