On Sunday 2nd December, many of our sport’s biggest stars will flock to the Grosvenor House Hotel in London for a glittering evening of prize-giving celebration. Autosport subscribers can vote online by simply clicking on your choices from the nominees below. All votes will be counted to crown the Autosport Award winner for each of the nine categories, which is the ultimate accolade following an intense season of action.
Scuderia Ferrari German driver Sebastian Vettel has been nominated for the Racing Driver of the Year category: “There have been mistakes, no question, but Vettel has carried the weight of Ferrari’s title hopes for two seasons and that pressure is immeasurable. Still managed five wins and now has 13 to Kimi Raikkonen’s one in their time together.”
Future Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc has been nominated for the Rookie of the Year award: “Big things were expected after back-to-back GP3 and Formula 2 titles, but nobody could really have imagined Leclerc earning a Ferrari promotion in his first season. Sauber’s on the up, and Leclerc has taken full advantage.”
The SF71H has been nominated for the Racing Car of the Year category: “It’s only a few races ago that Mercedes was wondering what it could do to stop Sebastian Vettel taking the world title. As quick as the Merc as often as not, only its recent form has let the Ferrari down.”
