Dani Sordo is a steady scorer but was put on the bench last season with only five starts as Oliver Solberg took the remaining starts if the decision had not been made not to renew the contract with Solberg, there would have been even fewer starts for the Spaniard in 2023.

Before 2023, Sordo was once again faced with the choice of putting his helmet on the shelf, May he turns 40 and is now heading towards a season with 7-8 rallies and it is the 10th straight season with Hyundai. Sordo revealed this in an interview with the Spanish sports newspaper AS on Friday 9 December.

The contract is for eight races but with only 13 races it could be seven, the start will be in the Rallye Monte-Carlo before he is expected to leave the car over to Craig Breen in Sweden. The Irishman is the fourth driver in Hyundai Motorsport and will share the car with Sordo and be backup. He goes from a full season in M-Sport Ford WRT to barely half a season with Hyundai. The continuation of the season in the third car is planned as the season progresses and depending on form, rallies may increase or decrease in number.
