Sebastien Ogier enjoyed a brilliant season in 2013, securing the WRC Drivers' title with two events to go, when he was crowned in front of his home fans in France.

The Volkswagen man won nine events in total, claiming his first victory of the year in Sweden – only the second WRC event with the Polo R WRC. The Frenchman also won in Mexico, Portugal, Sardinia, Finland, Australia, France, Spain and Wales.

In addition he took second place finishes in Monte Carlo and Argentina, and won 7 of the 12 Power Stages (there was no Power Stage in Monte Carlo after the final two tests were cancelled on safety grounds).

His only mistake came in Germany, when he went out on the Friday morning in SS3. He also only finished 10th in Greece – but that was after being sidelined by a fuel pressure problem in SS1.

Overall you gave him an average mark of 7.001 out of ten and that places him second in your 2013 World Rally Driver of the Year vote.
