The divorce between Hyundai and Solberg opens the doors to the continuity of Sordo

The joint dream of Oliver Solberg and Hyundai is over. A ‘marriage’ that sought to follow in the footsteps of what Kalle Rovanpera and Toyota have done, but that has come out ‘frog’. Given the lack of results, but above all the lack of progress of the young son Petter, who was world champion in 2003, the Korean team has announced the ‘divorce’. Something that opens the doors to the continuity of dani deaf the next season.

Hyundai has issued a statement explaining that they will not renew Solberg’s contract for the 2023 season, and that they will look for an ‘experienced’ team for next season. The best thing Solberg has done in his eight appearances at the wheel of the official i20 It was fourth place in Belgium. At no time has he hinted that he will be a future star in the World Cup, and perhaps that is why the Korean team has decided to ‘split pears’ with him.

A situation that opens the doors to the continuity of Sordo. Despite the fact that the Spaniard already glimpsed a year ago in AS that 2022 could be his last season, the results in his few participations this year indicate that he is still in top form. He has won three podiums in the three rallies in which he has raced, Portugal, Sardinia and Greece, to which must be added the two achieved in the last two events of last year, Spain and Monza. The Spaniard does not fail, and at Hyundai they know it and have great appreciation for him after so many years together.

In fact, Dani has already left the door open to continue for another year, aware that it is still competitive. The problem is that Sordo doesn’t want to run the whole season, and that forces to look for another pilot to combine it with the Spanish. And, to ‘dress up’ the situation even more, Ott Tanak could also leave a formation that has been without a boss since December after the break with Andrea Adamo. Intense days ahead in Alzenau.
