The 2018 World Rally Championship title battle has been the best in many years, with the three-way tussle between Thierry Neuville, Sebastien Ogier and Ott Tanak still too close to call with two rallies remaining.

All three are shortlisted for the Award, as is Tanak's Toyota team-mate Jari-Matti Latvala. Ogier has won this category for the past five straight years.

Their opposition includes a WRC legend: Carlos Sainz is nominated for claiming his second Dakar Rally victory in Peugeot's farewell year, beating not just growing opposition from Mini and Toyota but also an illustrious line-up of team-mates that included Sebastien Loeb and Stephane Peterhansel.

Also in the mix is Jan Kopecky, nominated for his outstanding performances in WRC2 this season.
