Podcast: Will Hyundai lack leadership in Monte Carlo?

The SPIN, The Rally Pod team assembles to preview the opening round of the 2022 WRC season


It’s almost time for the talking to stop and the driving to start. Almost.

With just days to go until the opening round of the 2022 World Rally Championship in Monte Carlo, there’s 50 minutes worth of talking we couldn’t leave you without: SPIN, The Rally Pod.

Join Colin Clark, David Evans, George Donaldson and host Lisa O’Sullivan as they look ahead to the first chapter of the WRC’s new electrified era.

Donaldson gives us a detailed weather update and reflects on a controversial end to the 2002 event when he was Subaru’s team manager before conversation turns to the present day.

Can we expect the Rally1 cars to work straight out the box, or will we be in for problems? And should a WRC team have a de facto team leader?

Elfyn Evans recently said Toyota doesn’t need one in Sébastien Ogier’s absence, and Hyundai hasn’t given preferential treatment to Thierry Neuville and Ott Tänak, but is that the most effective strategy? Clark and Donaldson discuss.
