Predictions Championship

Nico Rosberg, Mark Webber, Adrian Newey, Fernando Alonso, Monaco, 2012Two players are tied for the lead of the Predictions Championship after the Monaco Grand Prix round.

Carpy3 and Chrissylyn each have 65 points following a difficult round in which most players struggled to score in double figures.

The highest scorer was Tango11 with 19, who wins a 1972 Autocourse eBook.

Formula 1 took second place after beating OmarR-Pepper in the pole position time tie-breaker. They win a Grand Prix Heroes DVD and F1 poster respectively.

For the second week in a row few players correctly picked the race winner before qualifying started – just 11 (1.2%) named Mark Webber as the winner and 12 (1.3%) tipped him to take pole position.

Lewis Hamilton was the favourite both for pole position (43.2%) and the win (34.9%).

    Is it just me or has no one got any points for Bahrain?

  2. Fer no.65 (@fer-no65) said on 29th May 2012, 14:24

    Amaizingly, this was my best round so far this year :P. Predicted Rosberg on 2nd and Vettel on 4th correctly. Had I followed my heart, I’d have put Webber on pole and win… but I didn’t. Heh.

  3. necrodethmortem (@necrodethmortem) said on 29th May 2012, 14:29

    I had Rosberg, Alonso, Vettel and Hamilton in my top 5, but none in the correct spot :/

  4. Sam B (@sb360) said on 29th May 2012, 14:56

    Well I am so far averaging 2 points per race. pretty poor showing really.

  5. AdrianMorse (@adrianmorse) said on 29th May 2012, 15:49

    Had Alonso in third, and Hamilton in the top 5 (1), so a whopping 4 points this time!. Also I initially predicted Perez and Maldonado in the top 5, but I swapped Maldonado for Massa (5). Should have put Webber in there as well, but after his comments that he didn’t think RBR could challenge for pole I gave the Red Bulls a miss…

  6. Ciaran (@walsh-f1) said on 29th May 2012, 16:20

    9 points, great result. Delighted to be in 7th place

  7. rajamaniarun (@rajamaniarun) said on 29th May 2012, 17:12

    I am just 19 points behind …One good result and i should be in top 10!!!!

  8. George (@george) said on 29th May 2012, 17:40

    Wow, almost doubled my score this week! I was expecting a wet quali if anyone’s wondering why the time is so high (or why I went for Webber).

  9. AndrewTanner (@andrewtanner) said on 29th May 2012, 22:14

    Yet another terrible showing from me, 3 points! Currently ranked around 700.

  10. Tony M (@tango11) said on 29th May 2012, 22:38

    I would like to say that my success was down to having watched F1 since the days of the Lotus 77 in its JSP livery, but it would be a lie. Success in the Prediction Championship this year seems to be as random as the driver’s championship.

    Great competition in its own right – prizes a nice bonus. Thanks Keith.

  11. Mad Eric (@mad-eric) said on 29th May 2012, 23:09

    As i (stupidly) did not write or print all my prior predictions can Keith please let us access our prior predictions, without giving us the chance to change them of course ;(
    I scored a massive ONE from Monaco :-((

  12. Paul Ogbeiwi (@pauldstar) said on 29th May 2012, 23:46

    how do you find out how much you scored without having to go on the massive predictions championship table?

  13. schooner (@schooner) said on 30th May 2012, 0:38

    8.6 points average so far, 5 this week, and I find myself tied at #31. Crazy! Are previous year’s prediction results still available for viewing?

  14. Thecollaroyboys (@thecollaroyboys) said on 30th May 2012, 3:31

    I was all over this round but fate dealt me a cruel hand – check this out.

    My Pole Time – 01:14.300 – fastest time 01:14.301 but then Shuey was sent back 5 grids
    My Pole – Nico Rosberg – I had the right team but the wrong driver
    My Position 1 – Fernando Alonso – finished third
    My Position 2 – Mark Webber – finished first
    My Position 3 – Nico Rosberg- finished second
    My Position 4 – Jenson Button – the less said the better
    My Position 5 – Sergio Perez – close but no banana

    So all I get is 3 points – I could have been a contender!
