WRC Driver Scores Rally Podium With Beer-Cooled Car

Hyundai's Thierry Neuville sprung a leak in his radiator at Rally Mexico over the weekend, so he filled it with beer.

Thanks to the Corona, Neuville managed to not just finish the rally, but score Hyundai's first podium with a well-deserved third place.

(Hat tip to everybody!)

You're missing a couple of the key details, Raph! The beer was given to Thierry at the podium ceremony (which, for the sake of TV, takes place at the end of the final stage, not back at service which is the real end of the rally). In other words Thierry's award for finishing third, given to him before he technically finished, was what saved his rally and allowed him to finish third!
