Though he ran in Pramac colours, Andrea Iannone was very much a factory Ducati rider in 2014 and emerged as the more consistently competitive team-mate to Andrea Dovizioso than the other man in red, Cal Crutchlow.

A notable step up in consistency and form compared with his maiden 2013 campaign, Iannone - like Dovizioso - often stole the headlines in qualifying as he took advantage of Ducati's softer compound rear rubber, claiming five front row starts.

But Iannone's race pace was also eye-catching at times, leading several races and scoring six top-six finishes, as well as being in contention for a podium at the Valencia season finale.

Iannone proved himself to be on the up in 2014 and was duly promoted to join Dovizioso in the official Ducati team next season.

About the vote:
Rather than repeat the Riders' World Championship standings, the MotoGP Star of the Year poll asks viewers to take into account factors such as machinery, performance relative to a team-mate, riding style, experience, injuries, progress and personality just as much as race results.

Over 50,000 votes were cast for the 2014 Crash.net MotoGP Star of the Year poll, where viewers awarded each of this year's full-time participants - only Colin Edwards, who retired during the season, was not included - with a mark out of ten.
