Think you can predict the top five finishers in the Hungarian Grand Prix?

Name your top five and the pole sitter below for your chance to win from a selection of great prizes including tickets to the 2011 British Grand Prix, new F1 Fanatic T-shirts and loads more.

The prizes

This year we’re giving away a pair of prizes every race weekend.

On top of that at the end of the year the top 12 finishers all get prizes – and whoever scores the highest overall will be going to the 2011 British Grand Prix. Here are the prizes in full:

Grand prize: Two grandstands tickets to the 2011 British Grand Prix

The person who scores the most points in the 2010 F1 Fanatic Predictions Championship will win grandstand tickets to the 2011 British Grand Prix at Silverstone.

This is the first time we’ve offered F1 race tickets as a prize at F1 Fanatic and I hope you all agree it’s a fitting reward for the F1 expert who can best predict who will be on top in 2010.

The grand prize winner will receive tickets to all three days of the 2011 British Grand Prix with reserved grandstand seating for the race.

Second place prize: An F1 painting of your choice

The second place finisher in the championship will win an F1 painting by Rob Ijbema.

You get to choose which F1 driver, present or past, will feature in the painting. Or you can pick one of the other motor racing paintings on Rob’s site Car-a-day.


Runners-up prizes: Autocourse 2010-2011

The ten players who finish in third to 12th positions in the championship will win a copy of the 2010-2011 edition of Autocourse.

The highly respected journal of Formula 1 and other major international four-wheeled racing series is published at the end of every season.

This year the publication marks its 60th anniversary edition.

Race winners prize: The Lotus Story DVD Box Set

Duke Video are supplying the prize for the player who gets the highest score in each round.

With the Lotus name returning to F1 in 2010 what better prize than a DVD box set showing the history of this great team. This four-disc set “The Lotus Story” chronicles Lotus’s participation in F1 from the company’s beginning in 1948 up to its F1 withdrawal in 1994. (Please note this DVD is in PAL format).

Duke are also offering a special promotion exclusive to all F1 Fanatic readers – whenever you order from them you can get 15% off using the promotional code F1Fanatic at the checkout.

Race runners-up prize: Two F1 T-shirts

The second place finisher in each race will win a race winner’s T-shirt and Official F1 Fanatic T-shirt from Unlap.

This prize is supplied by Unlap.

How to enter

Entries will open in the week before every race. You have until the start of free practice three on Saturday to make your predictions.

You can post your predictions for the first race now below or wait until nearer the deadline. A reminder will be posted on the site after free practice two on Friday.

Each player may predict the pole sitter, the pole position lap time and the top five finishers in the race. See below for the rules in full.

Enter your pole position lap time prediction in the following format: MM:SS.ccc – e.g. for a lap of one minute, 25.386 seconds enter 01:25.386

After submitting your prediction the page will refresh to show your prediction has been added. If this does not happen, or you are concerned your prediction has not been received, please get in touch using the contact form.

        Yes. On the official F1 website it originally had thunderstorms predicted for the race before they changed it an hour or so later. It is as if they are trying to add some mystery to it or something??? We have had so few wet races this year! But does anyone know if it will actually rain for quali before I make my prediction?

    4. i cant seem to enter :( 16:00 friday…? :/

      1. Predictions are still open and coming in. If the form doesn’t work for you you can email them in (see in the rules).

          I wish FOM wouldn’t give us false hope by saying thunderstorms for all three days…:S I just predicted for a dry time because I have no idea what the weather is doing!

    7. I think this is the most similiar set of predictions yet. Seems to be Red Bulls, Ferraris and Kubica – it’s just what order?

      I went for Webber on pole and Webber to win. It just seems whenever he slightly slips into the shadows…bam. He’s there again and it’ll be nice to see him ahead of Vettel again. As for Kubica I think he could split the Ferraris – jsut hope i’ve got the reds the right way round.

      1. If we were predicting the grid than that could be close, but we know that this year the final results have looked anything but the quali order.

    8. do we get double points if we predict massa to finish ahead of alonso and it happens???

    9. I’ been really enjoying the predictions comp lately, I threw my toys out of my pram after a really poor result in round 1, so I,m looking to improve my predictions results.

    10. the main prize should be paddock tickets.

    11. I really hope Massa wins, I don’t think it would happen, but it would be good…

      I will show I get pole position. Just like in Monaco. Almost. Just don’t tell RedBull or Ferrari

      Think that I was the only one to put HULK in the top five. just you guys wait and see! :)

    14. Oh God, please rain

      1. Agree. If we all do a rain dance do you think it will work?!!

    15. Yes! I’m praying for rain too

    16. The only thing that is certain is that Vettel will try and run somebody off the track at the start.
