Crash.net’s Top 10 WRC Drivers: Sixth

Henning Solberg secures sixth place in your vote to find the top driver from the 2009 WRC season
Henning Solberg again took on the role of leading the Stobart Ford team during the 2009 campaign and was rewarded with a top six championship finish.

In all, the elder Solberg managed to score points on eight of the twelve events he contested, with podium finishes coming in both Argentina and Poland – where he finished third.

The undoubted low point of the season came in Cyprus, where Solberg was forced out of the opening day after being involved in a road accident on the way to the opening stage.

As the season wore on, Henning found himself in the middle of an inter-family battle with brother Petter and eventually finished just two points behind in the championship standings.

However, sixth in the standings was enough to see you vote him in the same position in the poll to find the WRC driver of the year.

Car: Ford Focus RS WRC

Championship position: 6th
Points: 33

Agree with that, Henning was pretty consistent. But we're getting near the business end of this top 10 and no sign of '60 starts 1 4th place to show for it Wilson'. Crash couldn't seriously post him inside the top 5 could they? He couldn't even manage top 5 in his home rally at the 6th time of asking.

Chris, the next driver in Crash.net's Top 10 WRC drivers will be Number 7 - and we all know who always finish 7th now, don't we !!! Henning might be consistent, but he's also cr@p ! He's had a few years in the top flight now, and not achieved much, another of the many pay drivers which make up the WRC these days - what happened to all the stars who were there on merit earlier this decade ?
