Sordo rolled his Citroen DS3 just after the halfway point of the 40 kilometre Santa Catalina / La Pampa stage when an incorrect pace note from Del Barrio [pictured left above] caused him to take a corner too fast.
Del Barrio later tweeted: 'No excuses. I made a stupid mistake this morning. It was totally my fault. I am very sorry for @DaniSordo & all @CitroenRacing guys.'
But on Thursday evening Sordo explained that his co-driver had given the wrong note because he was distracted.
“Unfortunately, there was a problem with Carlos’ door. It affected his concentration and he didn’t give me the right pace note,” he said.
Have a look at the onboard footage to see exactly what del Barrio was doing in the seconds before calling that wrong note.
