Thierry Neuville heads to this week’s Croatia Rally with a six-point lead in the World Rally Championship standings. He’s been at the top of the pile ever since the season kicked off in January. But it hasn’t all been plain sailing – he’s had to rely on some stunning ‘Super Sunday’ performances on the past two rounds.

Could it be that the Hyundai driver is building a sustained title bid? Or can Elfyn Evans find that elusive sweet spot with his Toyota GR Yaris and strike a momentum-swinging blow on a rally he won last year?

What about Ott Tänak? After a very difficult start to the season, Neuville’s team-mate is under pressure to produce a strong result this week. Then there’s Adrien Fourmaux in the M-Sport Ford Puma; can the Frenchman secure a third consecutive WRC podium finish?

These are among the topics discussed by Colin Clark and David Evans on this week’s SPIN, The Rally Pod. The pair also look back on a fantastic Otago Rally in New Zealand and ponder the state of play with the WRC calendar.
