This year's Predictions Champion will be going to the British Grand Prix

The F1 Fanatic Predictions Championship is back for the 2010 season!

This year we’ve got a bigger competition with – for the first time – prizes to win at every race. We’ve got paintings, F1 DVDs and copies of Autocourse to be won.

And the winner of the overall championship will claim the grand prize of grandstand tickets for the 2011 British Grand Prix. Of course it’s entirely free to enter – join in below…

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.

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: F1 race winner print

The second place finisher in each race will win a 40x35cm print of the race winner from Motorsport in Print.

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 and the top five finishers in the race. See below for the rules in full.

Please try to pick an original and distinctive user name – something a bit more descriptive than just a first name. We had a lot of very similar entries last year!

    Is it possible to participate even if we are outside the UK? And if so, do we pay the delivery?

    • Keith Collantine (@keithcollantine) said on 8th March 2010, 17:17

      Good news! Yes it’s open to people outside the UK, no you don’t have to pay delivery. :-)

    • GeeMac said on 9th March 2010, 5:33

      Thatt’ just what I was going to ask, thanks Keith!

    • Nirupam said on 9th March 2010, 10:17

      Thanks Keith, that was my question too as I know I will be moving out from the UK in a month!!!!! :)

      • Macca said on 9th March 2010, 13:38

        I don’t think first prize realy suits people outside of the UK, unless travel is included, but I don’t think that is going to happen.

        On a side note, it is fantastic to so that we have 65 people joined up to our Fantasy Leauge over on FSPORTS.

        Good luck to everyone in both competitions!

    Dindnt get the deadline. From that countdown I undrstand its till the end of SP, am I correct?

  3. newnnhamlea1 said on 8th March 2010, 17:22

    keith, you might want to correct the size of the race runners up prize, if that is the genuine size i wouldnt know were to put it.

  4. sato113 said on 8th March 2010, 17:23

    5 positions! will guessing the winner of a race be worth more points than guessing 5th place?
    great prizes btw!!!

    • José Baudaier said on 9th March 2010, 1:47

      Should be the other way around. Everybody talks about the first positions. So it is harder to guess the fifth.

  5. irishlad (@irishlad) said on 8th March 2010, 17:31

    Looking forward to it keith :)

  6. Adrian said on 8th March 2010, 17:32

    Wow, that was tough!! It’s so open this year that deciding who to put where was near impossible. So I’ve guessed…

  7. Einar AI said on 8th March 2010, 17:35

    One word – spectacular.

  8. Arun Srini said on 8th March 2010, 17:36

    Only one apart from me cheering for the King, Schumacher, lets see,…

  9. interesting last year i didnt enter, and this is free which is even better.

    But S*** it’s only until saturday the 2010 cars are set loose for “real”, my head is thumping already.

  10. F1Fan said on 8th March 2010, 17:39

    Keith, how much of the Silverstone track is visible from the Grandstand ? Is it only the start-finish straight ? I want to be prepared for when I go there :)

    • Keith Collantine (@keithcollantine) said on 8th March 2010, 17:46

      The exact location of the grandstand hasn’t been decided yet, partly because of the new building work which will be going on between the 2010 and 2011 races.

  11. 42 points is the maximum then? 19*42 = 840-19 =
    = 821 points is the maximum of the whole season?

    • Keith Collantine (@keithcollantine) said on 8th March 2010, 17:47

      No, 50 – the points accumulate:

      Two points for a win.
      Eight for correctly naming the drivers in the top five.
      40 for getting them in the right order.

      So max score for the season is 950.

  12. irishlad (@irishlad) said on 8th March 2010, 17:48

    dont get too cocky :)

  13. steph said on 8th March 2010, 17:50

    I’m so excited I half want to make the predicitons now but I’ll be shrewd and wait for practice although I doubt that will give away much either!

  14. maciek said on 8th March 2010, 18:08

    Very enticing competition, Keith. F1 tickets – holy split!. One question – The Lotus DVD box set is the prize for every race? So someone might end up with multiple copies…?

  15. John H said on 8th March 2010, 18:09

    Nice. In the words of Murray: ‘Oh fantastic!’
