FIA World Endurance champions Mark Webber and Brendon Hartley have received Gold Stars at the 2015 BRDC Awards.

The factory Porsche LMP1 drivers, who combined with Timo Bernhard to win the FIA World Endurance Championship, were awarded the highest accolade from the BRDC at an awards ceremony in London.

Webber and New Zealander Hartley join a renowned list of former winners including Sir Stirling Moss, Emerson Fittipaldi and the late Sir Jack Brabham.

Red Bull Formula 1 driver Daniel Ricciardo won the Innes Ireland Trophy, awarded to the driver who has displayed the most courage and sportsmanship during the year.

The Western Australian won the same award last year along with the Bruce McLaren Trophy.
