17-1: MotoGP Rider of the Year results

Your full results for the 2011 MotoGP Rider of the Year vote.
After calculating more than 79,000 votes, Casey Stoner has been revealed as your top MotoGP rider of 2011, polling an average rating of 8.70 out of 10.

Rewarded for his outstanding 2011 MotoGP campaign, which included 11 race wins and 16 podiums from the 17 rounds, Stoner won the fan vote ahead of the much-missed Marco Simoncelli and outgoing world champion Jorge Lorenzo.

As well as results, viewers were asked to take into account factors such as machinery specification, performance relative to team-mates, injuries, plus the ability to communicate with fans and promote the sport.

Although we've already revealed your top ten, viewers were asked to mark all-17 of the full time 2011 MotoGP riders - so here is a complete list and average mark out of 10 for each rider:

1. Casey Stoner Repsol Honda 8.70
2. Marco Simoncelli San Carlo Honda Gresini 8.46
3. Jorge Lorenzo Yamaha Factory Racing 7.86
4. Ben Spies Yamaha Factory Racing 7.32
5. Dani Pedrosa Repsol Honda 7.24

@pinky Rossi is only worth one point in my eyes for the following reasons He has years of experience, a 15million euro salary, spent a massive development budget, and yet failed to deliver on improving the bike and getting it on the podium. To cap it all off no one can say he rode the bike withe commitment or aggression of Stoner. So much so even JB accused him of not pushing hard enough. Relatively speaking the rookies achieved so much more. @LCTanner.not sure how close racing is derived from "character" or clowns as I like to call them!

Stoner deserves to be recognised as the best Moto GP rider - by a very long way. On both the Ducati and Honda he has shown that he is the master of rear wheel steering - and without this talent Rossi has finally been revealed as just an ordinary mid-fielder.
