Spain’s Dani Sordo will return to Citroen for the 2013 World Rally Championship season after two years with the Provide-run Mini team.
The 29-year-old clinched the Junior title in 2005 with Citroen before joining the French team as Sebastian Loeb’s number two during the following season.
The reigning champions had been looking for a new driver following Loeb’s decision to compete in only four or five rallies in 2013.
Sordo will line-up alongside this year’s runner up, Mikko Hirvonen, who will become Citroen’s main driver when the season gets underway in Monte Carlo on January 15.
