The ever-close F1 Fanatic Predictions Championship has seen another change of lead with Saloolas nicking the top spot from Dougie once more.

And with Benno, brouard21, Chua, Dank, ianhaycox, Pete Walker and Sush Meerkat locked in a seven-way tie for third, this one’s going down to the wire.

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”

3x Runners-up prizes

  • Copies of “Lotus Goes Turbo” DVDs from Duke Video

This was one of our lowest-scoring rounds so far, with no-one predicting the Hamilton-Raikkonen-Webber podium exactly and only Haas correctly naming Fernando Alonso as the pole sitter.

Saloolas now has a ten-point lead over Dougie, with the chasing pack another 20 points further back. But with seven rouns left to play and 60 points on offer at each round, there’s still a lot of fight left in this title battle.
