WRC Driver of the Year 2012 vote: Full results

Sebastien Loeb came out top in your World Rally Driver of the Year 2012 vote - but what were the surprises? And who's missing from the top ten run down?

Just before the New Year we revealed that Sebastien Loeb had been voted as your top World Rally Driver of 2012, no surprise there. But now, it is time to give you the full run down on how all 20 drivers' fared...

In all, we asked you to give the top 16 drivers' in the 2012 WRC drivers' championship, a mark out of ten, and just for fun we added in four 'wildcards' too, one of whom made it into your top ten, with S2000 World Rally Champion Craig Breen taking a fantastic fourth place overall.

The full results, and the average score out of ten awarded by Crash.net readers, can be seen below, and as you can see spots 6 to 12 were very tight...
