Vote for your top World Rally driver of 2010

We've had our say on the stars of the 2010 World Rally Championship campaign – now it's your turn to have yours'. We want to know who you rate as the heroes of the season. To cast your votes, read on...
So we've revealed to you our top ten stars of the 2010 World Rally season – but do you agree with our appraisal? Here's your chance to have your say...

Petter Solberg topped our rankings due to the way his privately entered team took the fight to the factory cars of Sebastien Loeb, Sebastien Ogier and Jari-Matti Latvala et al. Petter may not have won any events, but he came close as his eight podiums prove and his commitment to the sport was second-to-none. He even had to pay for the final one and half events of the season out of his own pocket. But do you think he deserved to be #1?

Would you have elected for Loeb, who took the title for a record seventh time in succession and was again the class of the field?

Perhaps, you were more impressed with how Ogier got on and how he won two events in only his second season in a World Rally Car, a feat that earned him promotion to the Citroen 'A' team for 2011?

Or how about the way Latvala bounced back after a tough 2009 – winning in New Zealand and Finland and despite being Ford #2 took the runners-up spot in the WRC drivers' championship?

Whatever your views, make sure to share them right here, both by clicking on the link below and also in our comments forum.

Simply rate each of the chosen 15 drivers with a score from one (poor) to ten (excellent) dependent upon how impressed you were with their performance this year – and before Christmas, we will publish a list of your top ten.

'No driving talent' Wilson shouldn't even be on this list. Year 5 of 5, (though it's really his 7th season competing on WRC), 74 WRC rallies started and he managed 1 (one) 5th place in 2010. Could do no better than 7th on his home Rally GB - over 2 mins behind Henning in 6th and nearly 9 mins behind winner Loeb - and experience not an issue as this was his 7th GB start. Utter @rse gravy.
