The French will pay the toll of being leader opening track, something that will try to take advantage of his two rivals, winners of the last three editions, Neuville in 2016 and 2018 and Tanak in 2017.

Sordo recognizes that "We know we lost the opportunity to get a good result in Portugal, but we have recovered and now we are focused on Sardinia, where our goal is a weekend without problems. It is, however, a difficult rally. The roads are narrow, with stones that can harm us without realizing it. The first pass is quite gritty, so there is more grip in the second loop, which means we have to follow an intelligent tire strategy. The heat also makes it an exhausting rally for the car, tires and us, so we have many things to control throughout the weekend ".
