Despite the Waterford/Cavan crew’s excellent second place on Rally Sweden it has been hinted Dani Sordo will return to the third Hyundai for Rally Mexico next month.

Breen is contesting a partial season for Hyundai and sharing the third i20 Rally 1 car with the Spaniard this season.

In the meantime Breen and Fulton are contesting the Portuguese Rally Championship for Hyundai Portugal.

Speaking at the Rally Sweden post event press conference Breen hinted that Sordo will be granted the factory entry for WRC Guanajuato Rally México while he continues with his national programme.

The first round in Portugal – Serras de Fafe Rally – takes place one week before Mexico.

“I’m going to play with my Portuguese friends for the next while. I think I have two Portuguese rallies before I’ll be back in the world championship again,” Breen told the press conference.

“We’ve done all that we could this weekend to earn our place back in the team again. Of course Mexico is next. I think if you don’t take Dani to Mexico he’ll cry, it’s like his second home! For sure he’ll have a good road position there on a rally he knows very well and let’s hope he can bring back some points there as well. He has a bit of pressure now, to be fair, so he has to deliver.”

The second round of the Portuguese championship, Rally Casinos Algarve, is scheduled for March 30 and April1 while WRC Rally Croatia comes one week before round three.
