    This is brilliant! I correctly predicted the top 5 in the right order (for the first time ever), the only difference was the pole sitter. 48 points for me but 25 for Jenson, a great day all round.

    4 out of 5 in the right order (I had Nico instead of Webber) and missed the pole sitter aswell…
    Well done @alexf1man if you are not the winner, you’ll definitely be the runner up… 29 points for me, I am ahead of Jenson :D !
