Make your British Grand Prix prediction

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

Button has his eye on a maiden home win. Would you bet against him?
Button has his eye on a maiden home win. Would you bet against him?

Can Jenson Button?s incredible string of podiums continue at home? Or can one of his championship rivals rob him of a win at the track where he most wants to win?

Name the driver you think will claim pole position and the three who?ll be on the podium at the end of the race for a chance to win these prizes:

The prizes

First place prize

  • An original F1 painting by Rob Ijbema
  • Five F1 DVDs from Duke Video: “Formula One 1970: The uncrowned champion”, “Formula Villeneuve: A tribute to Gilles Villeneuve”, “The World’s Greatest F1 Cars”, “Champion: Hill” and “Nine Days in Summer”
  • ??60 to spend on F1 merchandise at Onpole.com

3x Runners-up prizes

  • Copies of “Lotus Goes Turbo” DVDs from Duke Video
  • ??30 to spend on F1 merchandise at Onpole.com

Here?s how the game works:

1. Predictions have to be made before the beginning of final practice on Saturday.
2. Only one set of predictions per person.
3. You have to predict (a) Who will be on pole position and (b) What the top three finishers (three different drivers) will be.
4. Players score:
a. ten points for correctly guessing the pole sitter
b. ten points for naming one of the top three in their correct position, 25 for naming two of the top three and 50 for naming the whole top three correctly
c. five points for correctly naming any other driver in the top three (but not in the correct position)
5. Predictions must be entered as described below and either posted in a comment below or emailled to competition-at-f1fanatic.co.uk
6. Whoever scores the most points over the 15 races from round three (China) to 17 (Abu Dhabi) wins the grand prize.
7. In the event of a tie the winner will be determined by who picked to most race winners correctly, then second places finishers and so on.
8. In the event of a dispute the editor’s decision is final.

How to enter your predictions

Please post your predictions in the following format: start with your user name (try to pick a unique one), then the name of your pick for pole position, then the top three drivers in order, using only their surnames. Do not add any other characters on these five lines. If you do not adhere to this style your entry may not be counted.

I’m not eligible to win the prizes, of course, but I’ll be joining in for fun. Here?s my prediction for the British Grand Prix:

Barrichello

Make your predictions now. Remember – predictions close when the third practice session begins on Saturday.

    I believe this is the weekend for Webber his long wait will finally come to an end firstly on Saturday by getting his first pole then on Sunday by winning the Grand Prix.Vettel will come 2nd in a close battle with his teammate and Fernando Alonso will somehow drag that R29 onto the podium.Quali will be insane and the race will prove a great farewell to Silverstone.

    1. Have you ever heard of Brawn GP mate? :P

      1. clearly he hopes that rubes plows into jenson in the first corner. and frankly so do i….but id much rather see jenson finish, just outside the podium. this way nobody can blame it on sumbody else. i want him to have a genuinly misserable weekend.

        1. I like Jenson he’s a nice guy. I just wish someone else would win for a change. I’m sick of it

            Lol where those replies meant for me if they were your damn right I hope Rubens plows into Jenson so we could get some drama in the championship the Brawn team would start to get nervous and implode under the pressure of Red Bull I shall pray for it to come to pass :) & Sutil could make Q3 dont you think?

    1. Very nice, hahaha

    2. ^ i lol’ed…

      more so at the fact that u couldnt care less about what happens so long as button wins. what a shame it will be when he climbs over the tire wall and walks back to the pits before the checkered flag comes out.

      1. au contraire – i am trying to make some kind of a mockery of his dominance and the tedium of ‘F1’ as it is today…

        I long for another Alonso victory as it happens..

    Man, this can be a very exciting race !
    I can’t imagine Jenson not giving it all… Too short for pole, but he’ll overtake Seb Vettel in an epic move in the closing laps before a cheering crowd !
    As a Frenchman, I do hope Seb Bourdais will show a better display and get some precious points.

    1. This is F1 not MotoGP.

      You’re only allowed to overtake in the pitstops

  75. Keef…the host ban on comments kinda sucked…I felt left out of the blog. There are many great comments that come from people who aren’t MOD’s. I can understand the tech problems from a local broadcast, but this is a popular site and you should have foreseen the problems and worked around them. I’m a bit disappointed, but I’m still a fan of this website.

    It’s not like I ever say anything intelligent. It’s more like I just love F1…Now, having had my 12th pint…I’ll defer to more serious matters than my personal feelings.
