Dani Sordo’s decision to recruit Carlos del Barrio to co-drive him at MINI in 2011 marked a reunion for the Spaniards who worked together in 2004 before they went their separate ways the following season when Sordo linked up with Marc Marti and del Barrio partnered Xevi Pons. Hugely experienced, del Barrio replaced Sordo’s former navigator Diego Vallejo.
The partnership will continue through 2013. At present, the duo will compete in a Citroen DS3 WRC for the Citroen Total Abu Dhabi World Rally Team in eleven of the season's thirteen events. However, the latest news suggests that a full campaign could be possible.
