    He tweeted this an hour before he won the award so I doubt it’s about it.


    Let’s hope it’s the news that he will contest the whole season after all!!!

    Was that all, six pieces of text, or am I not seeing the whole article?

    Fascinating if that's the whole analysis.

    It was a fair vote in all honesty but I doubt there was a single driver more deserving of the prize than Latvala this year. Tanak evolved into a genuine title contender this year, but Latvala found the consistency he never had and didn't make a single mistake until the last stage of the last rally.

    You have mentioned it, but...tbh, he rolled (ok, illness) and in Spain he broke the car himself. But i agree, great driving from him this year, also from Tänak but would have nominated the one and only person...who actually won the title. I agree with best co-driver and team.

    You can make a case for quite a few drivers this year - which is fantastic. Latvala would probably have been my fourth choice. Neuville 3rd, Ogier 2nd...

    Can't begrudge Tanak winning it at all. He broke through to take his first win, became a genuine title contender, won again and finished the year with his stock at an all-time high.

    I was lucky enough to do five rounds this year and from a spectator perspective he's my driver of the year. If you're standing at a jump or anywhere which requires a bit of commitment he's one of the guys you're looking for.

    The "surprise" tweet came about 10 minutes after Social Media award was announced. It was then about an hour later came the longer tweet about what the award was.
    Anyone who was following the awards in real time could confirm this.

    Not a fan of his, but Neuville with most 2017 stage wins possibly deserved the 'DOTY' more than Tanak...

    If he hadn't wasted his championship chances on so many occasions and failed to capitalize on Ogier's misfortunes he'd have been deserving of the prize.

    There is only one driver who should take this award, and its the champion. Everything else is joke.
