"British Touring Cars is never easy, never straightforward, and it always goes down to the last round," said Turkington after receiving the award from Williams Formula 1 deputy team principal Claire Williams and driver Valtteri Bottas.

"This year was no different - seven champions on the grid, it was more difficult than ever."
