The only surprise is that Loeb was voted 2nd in 2010!

Also a surprise that Hapless fails to make the top ten. After his 8th season competing on WRC I'm sure all in Malcolm's household would have thought the public would have taken the boy wonderless to their hearts by now. But like slow moving glacier M-Sport haven't been quick to realise what everyone else did years ago and that he lines up in Monte again is a joke.

Put Wilson in the SWRC for a couple of seasons.Perhaps not as I see Breen blowing him away,so send him to IRC.Perhaps not as Hanninen,Kopecky and the like will hang him out to dry.Perhaps weather crew and testing may be the best or back to BRC!

Every single title Loeb has deserved it completly and he will be favorite number 1 next season. The only one who can really challenge him will be Latvala. But in the manufacturers championship will be more interesting than this year surely. As for Wilson, his place maybe is in PWRC or in some S2000 championship which will be much tougher considering the level in both IRC and SWRC.

Agreed. It had to be Loeb. 8 titles on the bounce. A great achievement. I think I agree with most the top ten this year, maybe would have expected Mikko to feature higher than tenth though, and personally I would have put Ogier 2nd. Paddon? Well, I don't really know how strong the PWRC was this year. Will be interesting to see him in SWRC next year, see his pace against Ogier etc. Breen is a future talent, and watching quite a few WRC academy rounds this year, you could see how close the competition was.

Oh well. I'm sure we all could argue for hours over who should have featured where! I can't wait for the start of Monte Carlo. Should be a good year.

I feel Ogier was the best in 2011.
He was fast in all rallies and unsettled Loeb more than any body in WRC history. And Shameless Loeb got him fired by citroen because he did not want a faster teammate, just as Alonso did not want hamilton in 2007.

He's the greatest rally driver of all time. That makes him one of the greatest *drivers* of all time. Enjoy him now, you'll miss him when he's gone.
And yes, I know it's not easy, but if you're not a fan of him, or even dislike him, then admire him for what he is while you can. It may be a long time until we see his like again.
