Sordo, who ignored Rally GB, is these days 10th within the driving force’s standings – however handiest 22 issues off fourth position. A robust trip at house from Sordo would most probably rule Breen in for Australia as a result of Hyundai workforce boss Andrea Adamo will desire a driving force sitting as a long way down the championship standings as imaginable.
The purpose can be for Hyundai to take pleasure in the cleanest and fastest imaginable stipulations coming from a day-one get started place on the rear of the main team.

You’ll be able to be the quickest guy on the planet, however when you blank the street for the others then you might be completed. I need to see the standings, after which I will be able to make a decision.”
Breen willingly dropped down the order to profit his team-mates, completing 7th on his handiest WRC get started this season – Rally Finland – and is these days six puts underneath Sordo. Finland was once Breen’s first get started with Hyundai, however his efficiency there was once beneficial.
“I might do anything else to visit Australia,” mentioned Breen. “I might love to return there to proper all of the wrongs of ultimate 12 months. I left with some terrible reminiscences, so I actually need to return and do a excellent task for Hyundai. However it is right down to no matter playing cards are highest to play ahead of the rally.
“Andrea is taking part in an implausible recreation, he is doing completely the whole lot in his energy to win the championship and I’ve to make myself the, I assume, the third-strongest card to play in Australia. It is as much as us in GB, and what Dani does at the rallies – Catalunya – in opposition to the tip of the 12 months. It is out of my keep watch over. All I will be able to do is do my highest on GB.”
