    Thanks Keith for this great competition. It adds another dimention to each F1 weekend. Happy being top20 this year, looking forward to 2013 :)

  2. George (@george) said on 27th November 2012, 18:24

    Top 100! Slow and steady!

  3. DaveF1 (@davef1) said on 27th November 2012, 19:37

    60th with one win. Not bad for a rookie ;)

    344th. Woeful. I’d like to blame my pit crew, Romaine Grosjean, dodgy alternators, fueling miscalculations, drain covers, astro turf, slippery white lines, and the Ferrari favouring FIA. Congratulations Carpy3 but you did have the fastest car and the competition was really between me and Adrian Newey.

    Woo, I got a prize! I didn’t see it coming at all, I got too caught up in the race action to think about it :) Thanks Keith!

    Also, kudos to @Andy2k12 for the accuracy of the pole position time. I was 260 times further from the actual time!

  6. Ciaran (@walsh-f1) said on 27th November 2012, 20:38

    I’m happy with 25th but if I had a better end to the year I could’ve been one of the prizewinners. Still nothing to be ashamed off and it’s better than I did last year :)

  7. I’d just like to thank f1fanatic and silverstone for the the tickets that I won for 2013 British Grand Prix and not forgetting the people that have congratulated me…..I’ve been like a kid that’s got a new toy all day,now just gotta book my snoozebox.

      Enjoy it @carpy3, impressive work! It’s great to win that prize, you can enjoy your win, than use the winter to look forward to the Silverstone race and look back on a great season, and then there’s the actual Silverstone race, three prizes in one :)

    Wow! I came =1504 and I only put in a predictions for two races! Next year I’m going to do every race! How hard can it be?

    Big Thanks to @keithcollantine for this great game, this great page and your huge commitment to all of that.

    With the things that happened at my job and my private life, this is the 3rd surprising achievement today …i’m not kidding! Thanks F1Fanatic for the contribution to my perfect day =)
    (…now there is the fear of what will happen tomorrow^^)

    Thanks for the great competition this year. Just a suggestion though. At the moment picking the winner of the race doesn’t actually give you extra points – only another driver in the right spot. How about say an extra 10 points if you pick the winner? That’s over and above the existing points structure. Picking the winner of the race is the most satisying after all, and in F1 winning is right up there on the “to do” list!

    Well done carpy3 and thanks Keith for all the hard work.

    I forgot to enter 3 times – d’oh! Still, it’s a amusing distraction

  12. AndrewTanner (@andrewtanner) said on 28th November 2012, 13:40

    A pretty dismal year for me! 103 points puts me just outside the top 10% Well done @carpy3 You finished with a pretty substantial lead considering the unpredictable nature of this season!
