Predictions Championship

Posted on

| Written by

Two players are tied for the lead of the Predictions Championship after the Monaco Grand Prix round.

Carpy3 and Chrissylyn each have 65 points following a difficult round in which most players struggled to score in double figures.

The highest scorer was Tango11 with 19, who wins a 1972 Autocourse eBook.

Formula 1 took second place after beating OmarR-Pepper in the pole position time tie-breaker. They win a Grand Prix Heroes DVD and F1 poster respectively.

For the second week in a row few players correctly picked the race winner before qualifying started – just 11 (1.2%) named Mark Webber as the winner and 12 (1.3%) tipped him to take pole position.

Lewis Hamilton was the favourite both for pole position (43.2%) and the win (34.9%).

  1. Is it just me or has no one got any points for Bahrain?

    1. @mads The round was cancelled for Bahrain

      1. Aaaah yeah I remember now!.. Oh that is slightly embarrassing.
        Thanks for clearing it up.

  2. Amaizingly, this was my best round so far this year :P. Predicted Rosberg on 2nd and Vettel on 4th correctly. Had I followed my heart, I’d have put Webber on pole and win… but I didn’t. Heh.

  3. I had Rosberg, Alonso, Vettel and Hamilton in my top 5, but none in the correct spot :/

  4. Well I am so far averaging 2 points per race. pretty poor showing really.

    1. Any new word for not opening an account till yet :(

  5. Had Alonso in third, and Hamilton in the top 5 (1), so a whopping 4 points this time!. Also I initially predicted Perez and Maldonado in the top 5, but I swapped Maldonado for Massa (5). Should have put Webber in there as well, but after his comments that he didn’t think RBR could challenge for pole I gave the Red Bulls a miss…

    1. @adrianmorse Same here about Red Bull! Damn him!… he fooled us! :P

  6. 9 points, great result. Delighted to be in 7th place

  7. I am just 19 points behind …One good result and i should be in top 10!!!!

  8. Wow, almost doubled my score this week! I was expecting a wet quali if anyone’s wondering why the time is so high (or why I went for Webber).

  9. Yet another terrible showing from me, 3 points! Currently ranked around 700.

  10. I would like to say that my success was down to having watched F1 since the days of the Lotus 77 in its JSP livery, but it would be a lie. Success in the Prediction Championship this year seems to be as random as the driver’s championship.

    Great competition in its own right – prizes a nice bonus. Thanks Keith.

  11. As i (stupidly) did not write or print all my prior predictions can Keith please let us access our prior predictions, without giving us the chance to change them of course ;(
    I scored a massive ONE from Monaco :-((

    how do you find out how much you scored without having to go on the massive predictions championship table?

  13. 8.6 points average so far, 5 this week, and I find myself tied at #31. Crazy! Are previous year’s prediction results still available for viewing?

  14. I was all over this round but fate dealt me a cruel hand – check this out.

    My Pole Time – 01:14.300 – fastest time 01:14.301 but then Shuey was sent back 5 grids
    My Pole – Nico Rosberg – I had the right team but the wrong driver
    My Position 1 – Fernando Alonso – finished third
    My Position 2 – Mark Webber – finished first
    My Position 3 – Nico Rosberg- finished second
    My Position 4 – Jenson Button – the less said the better
    My Position 5 – Sergio Perez – close but no banana

    So all I get is 3 points – I could have been a contender!

    1. @thecollaroyboys You shouldnt have taken the dive. You coulda been somebody, lol

      7pts for me, tipping MW for the win finally paid off :)

  15. Had a day off work on Fri and forgot to enter! D’oh!

  16. @OmarR-Pepper Contact me here regarding your poster, lemme know which (in-stock) A3 poster you want and I’ll send it out :)

  17. Where do I find how I done? Do I have to find myself in the over list?

    1. @Drive if you hold Ctrl f on the predictions table, a bar should come up and you can type your name in and it will find any matches to it.

      1. Thanks
