Championship standings

Sush Meerkat and championship newcomer Bobo the Legend were the top scorers at the Istanbul round. Each netted 50 points, but no-one managed a perfect 60 this time around. Sush and Bobo correctly predicted the top three correctly but neither got the pole sitter right.

Sush’s result propelled him up 71 places into a tie for tenth with greg76, mar-E-o and simonrs. Meanwhile Bobo entered the 459-string championship an impressive 105th with just one result to his name. Can he do it again next week?

Here’s the championship standings so far in full:

    Its is the happiest day of my life, a mention on my favourite site, on the main pic.

    Yeah you better be jealous!

    Well done to newcomer Bobo the Legend, I look forward to next weeks race predictions for sure.

    I think I might lodge a complaint with the Stewards of the Meeting. Not for any good reason, just because I’m around bottom . . .
    Well done to Dougie, Sush and Bobo!

      LOL the law of averages gives you 19th place?, until the Turkish GP i was putting Sutil in third place in some sort of wishful thinking type thing

    Twice i’ve got the top 3 right, just wrong order, if only my luck was different :(

    Sorry to ask, but, how come I scored just 10 points at Istambul having predicted Button to win and Vettel for 2nd?…

    I predicted the race winner correctly and I said Vettel would finish on podium… I don’t get it. Why just 10?

    Could you reply me the way you give points, to make it clear :P?

    This thread isn’t half as popular as it should be, I blame the Max Mosley for raining on mine and Bobo’s parade.

  13. harisim said on 12th June 2009, 20:19

    Cong. guys.Good one.Can’t wait next round.I have to be more objective.I know I should not choose drivers and teams just because I like them.

  14. Flying Wombat said on 12th June 2009, 23:23

    Equal 40th! I rock (!)

    I’d have cleaned up if Massa had got his act together – I had him as being on pole and finishing between Button and Vettel. Thanks for nothing Filipe… ;-)

    wish i had a time machine de-lorean like michael j fox, like in the movie back to the future. or even a compendium of formula 1 results upto 2020 would do it for me!! any way 317 is not a bad result for me,considering the fact that i missed to votr for bahrain,in which i think i got all podium performers right. any way the championship is still open to people like me. unlike the real one on the track.
