Autosport (UK) - - VOTING | AUTOSPORT AWARDS -

AUDI E-TRON FE04

Af­ter a dis­as­trous start to the 2017/18 For­mula E sea­son, the Abt-run Audi cars flew. De­fend­ing cham­pion Lu­cas di Grassi ended up as series run­ner-up, and Audi won the teams’ crown.

DALLARA IR18

The man­u­fac­turer aero kits were gone, and the re­vamped Indycar Series con­tender proved a hit both vis­ually and on the race track. Hell, they could even over­take on road cour­ses this sea­son.

FER­RARI SF71H

It’s only a few races ago that Mercedes was won­der­ing how to stop Se­bas­tian Vet­tel tak­ing the world ti­tle. A match for the Merc as often as not, its re­cent form has let the Fer­rari down.

MERCEDES F1 W09 HY­BRID

The lat­est Sil­ver Ar­row was born a bit of a diva, like its pre­de­ces­sor. But a mid-sea­son turn­around set Lewis Hamil­ton firmly on the road to­wards his fifth For­mula 1 World Cham­pi­onship.

TOY­OTA TS050 HY­BRID

In truth, Toy­ota has only had it­self to beat this year in the World En­durance Cham­pi­onship. Alonso, Buemi and Naka­jima lead the points. Oh yes, and they ended Toy­ota’s Le Mans jinx.

VOLK­SWA­GEN I.D. R PIKES PEAK

Us­ing the mono­coque from the Norma pro­to­type he drove last year, Ro­main Du­mas won the ‘Race to the Clouds’ in VW’S elec­tric car – smash­ing the all-time record by 16 sec­onds.
