Podcast: Assessing Rovanperä’s first WRC victory and Tänak’s error

In the latest edition of Spin, the Rally Pod team reflects on the main talking points of Rally Estonia


One driver’s delight and another’s overdriving are two of the main talking points on the latest episode of SPIN, The Rally Pod, as Rally Estonia is unpacked.

Lisa O’Sullivan is joined by Colin Clark, David Evans and George Donaldson to discuss Kalle Rovanperä’s first World Rally Championship victory – which made him the youngest driver ever to have achieved that feat – and the error that cost Ott Tänak, who looked most likely to challenge the 20-year-old for the win, a strong result.

There’s also a review of Thierry Neuville’s road-section speeding and the leniency of the stewards’ decision to fine him and give him a suspended ban, the contrasting performances of M-Sport’s two drivers, and a look ahead to 2022 after Craig Breen put himself in the shop window for a full-time seat with a second-place finish.
