A dramatic Rally Portugal brought plenty of talking points to the World Rally Championship last weekend. While Toyota’s Sébastien Ogier secured his second consecutive WRC victory with a masterclass performance, Hyundai driver Thierry Neuville significantly extended his lead atop the drivers’ championship standings.

Titles are won by maximizing your points on events where winning isn’t possible, and Neuville appears to have mastered that approach. Was it a champions’ drive that we witnessed last weekend? Our experts have their say on this week’s edition of SPIN, The Rally Pod, as Colin Clark and Jon Scoltock are joined by ex-driver Simon Hughes to discuss the action.

A deflated Elfyn Evans and his unflappable co-driver Scott Martin, the rise of Adrien Fourmaux into a leading contender, and Portuguese ice cream are just a few more of the topics the intrepid trio chew over.
