Danish Deaf returns to make 'the americas'. As it happened in Mexico, where the Spanish was fighting for the victory, now in the Rally of Argentina has a great opportunity to shine. The order of departure favors him in a test in which he has always shone and in which he has great support from the public. His team-mate Thierry Neuville defends the lead against Sebastien Ogier and Ott Tanak.

The Argentine event starts on Thursday at Villa Carlos Paz, one of the most passionate scenarios on the calendar. Its s are full of nuts, , which is what fans call there, offering impressive images on the roads of Cordoba. A landscape in which Sordo has climbed three times to the podium and in which he again has a great chance to get wet by coming out in seventh place in the first stage.

"I always want to get to Argentina, a special test with some fans really surprising ", secures the Cantabrian. "Despite being one of the most difficult rallies on the calendar, there are some very beautiful stretches, such as El Cóndor and Mina Clavero, which are a real privilege to ride." We show our rhythm on the ground in Mexico, fighting in the lead in the day inaugural and we want to repeat that level in Argentina and do everything possible to get a good result own and for the team ".

And if Sordo has an advantage for his starting position, the opposite happens with his teammate Neuville, who will pay the toll be a leader by opening track and cleaning the dirt to the rest. A factor that will try to take advantage of Ogier (who has never won in Argentina) and Tanak (winner of last year) to snatch the lead in this tight season in which the trio reaches the fifth test separated by five points.
