A shortlist of drivers is published in the magazine, then the Autosport readers vote for the winners. Nothing to do with recent race results, biased judges or anything like that, it's entirely down to who the public think is best.
As it's based on popularity, personally I'm once again disappointed that drivers who have achieved more have lost out to F1 drivers.
Thanks. I echo your sentiments. Sebastian Loeb not winning international driver of the year illustrates your point perfectly.
