This is isn't a question of Autosport shirking its responsibilities. Well, OK, maybe it is a bit.
But we wanted the definitive top 10 drivers of the British Touring Car Championship season just gone, so we went deep into the pitlane to speak to the people who really know. We questioned team managers or owners from every operation represented on the grid and asked them for their leading performers of 2019.
We've added up the votes (see, we did put in some effort) and come up with a list from the men and women on the inside.
