Podcast: Does Loeb get in Ogier’s head?

SPIN, The Rally Pod is back to debrief the opening round of the 2022 World Rally Championship


Trying to discuss everything that happened on last week’s Monte Carlo Rally – the opening round of the 2022 World Rally Championship – in under an hour is quite some task given the drama that unfolded. But that’s exactly what DirtFish’s podcast team has done.

The team is split this week, with David Evans and Colin Clark recording while still on the Mediterranean coast, and Lisa O’Sullivan and George Donaldson back in the studio.

It’s a slightly different show than usual, but it’s packed with all the same insight and analysis you’ve come to expect from SPIN, The Rally Pod.

Sébastien Loeb’s historic victory is assessed in detail as David Evans ponders whether Loeb got into rival Sébastien Ogier’s head, looking at last weekend’s event and plenty of historical examples to make his point.

Former WRC sporting director for several teams Donaldson meanwhile gives his take on Hyundai’s difficult situation and the comments made by Thierry Neuville about Oliver Solberg’s retirement.

And there’s a look at what Adrien Fourmaux must do to improve his WRC form – perhaps there’s a very good guide for him very close to home…
