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.

  1. A lot of different opinions on this circuit!!!

  2. Robbie said on 22nd October 2010, 7:34

    Koera? You mean Korea? :P

  3. Icthyes (@icthyes) said on 22nd October 2010, 8:28

    Oops, I missed out Kubica. Oh well.

  4. MacLeod said on 22nd October 2010, 10:14

    Where can i find my entry for Korea instead of Koera.. nm
    for memorysake:
    MacLeod 01:37.453 WEB HAM ALO WEB KUB VET

  5. The laptime format requirements seem a bit silly: MM:SS.ccc

    I can’t imagine a single situation where the laptime goes above 10 minutes. And even if it did, parsing M:SS.ccc should be absolutely no problem (in fact, there should be no reason to require a fixed amount of numbers for any field).

      I guess that’s just the way it works :)

    • Don’t forget Sakon is driving this weekend…

      Didn’t you know? The Snaefel Mountain Course on the Isle of Man (60.7 kms) is on the calendar in 2012 . . .
      “Taking in over 200 bends while climbing from sea level to an altitude of over 1,300 ft (396 m). This circuit is the epitome of the natural road course, all the roads used being ordinary public highways closed for the racing and practice sessions.”
      Wouldn’t that be fun?

    A Hamilton Victory and a Webber DNF…YES!

  7. Gwenouille said on 22nd October 2010, 14:12

    I went for a silly result really:
    Button Kubica Rosberg Alonso Kobayashi
    When I try to be reasonnable with my prediction I end up being wrong: this time I go crazy !
    Let’s see on sunday: I predict a massive Hamilton/Webber/Vettel tangle at the end of maxi-straight and Button first by then. (That’s almost Sci-Fi !)

  8. sabatino said on 22nd October 2010, 14:52

    90% of probabilty of a wet race !

  9. Snobeck said on 22nd October 2010, 15:03

    I think Alonso’s engine will let go this race.

  10. thanks people 4 d mge

    Fab idea Keith, you do a great job on this site; best F1 blog. Thanks :)

  12. webber to bag 0 this week…pressure!

  13. sumedh said on 22nd October 2010, 19:44

    I predict Webber for win. IMO, 2010 has been too good a season so far. It is time for some reality check.

    I reckon Webber will win, Alonso’s engine will fail, Vettel will be involved in some crash, and Kubica will slot in 2nd place thus further runing Mclaren drivers’ chances.

    • Well if that happens Webber can have Brazil off to make the last round semi interesting but still win it.

  14. Johnny Legg said on 22nd October 2010, 19:57

    I’ve based my pole prediction on my best lap of the track in F1 2010 on the PS3.
    After watching practice the track, in the game, seems quite accurate apart from a few grand stands and run offs that are grass and should be tarmac.

    looking forward to this one!!!!
