It is undoubtedly a mark of Robert Kubica's enduring popularity, rather than sadly the results he achieved in 2015, that he features so highly in your 2015 WRC Driver of the Year vote.

After a first full season at the top level in the WRC blighted by too many crashes in 2014, despite showing some impressive pace, his second campaign offered more of the same for the former F1 driver and race winner.

Though flashes of speed continued to show the Pole has some evident talent behind the wheel of the Ford Fiesta RS WRC car - he won nine stages, he struggled to make it to the end of an entire event without a drama, either self-inflicted or technical related.

Three top ten finishes proved an average return, and his best result, fittingly, came in front of his home fans when he was eighth in Poland.

In your vote you gave him an average mark of 6.1 out of ten, leaving him sixth overall and ahead of the likes of Mads Ostberg, Dani Sordo and Elfyn Evans. Do you think that score is about right? Share your opinions simply by clicking on the 'Post your comments' link below.

About the vote:
Rather than repeat the Drivers' World Championship standings, the World Rally Driver of the Year poll asks readers to take into account factors such as machinery, performance relative to a team-mate, driving style, experience, injuries, progress and personality just as much as race results.

Over 3,000 votes were cast for the 2015 Crash.net WRC Driver of the Year poll, where viewers awarded each of this year's full-time participants a mark out of ten for an average rating.
