2013 Japanese GP Predictions Championship results

F1 Fanatic Predictions Championship

Mark Webber, Sebastian Vettel, Romain Grosjean, Suzuka, 2013Colin Walters (@Colinwalt74) produced the best prediction of the Japanese Grand Prix – and would have got a perfect score had Sebastian Vettel not missed out on pole position.

With over 83% of players tipping Vettel for pole position a lot of players lost out due to his KERS problem – meanwhile the 30 who’d backed Mark Webber picked up an extra two points.

They included @Mickrock who took the second-highest score of the weekend.

However with 28 players tied for the next highest score the pole position time tie-breaker had to be used to decide the winner of the third place prize. It goes to @Gurpz.

Another of the players to tie for third place was @Adaptalis who has taken over at the head of the points from long-standing leader @Sebsronnie.

Here’s the details of what the top three players won in the Japanese Grand Prix round:

Position Player Prize
First Colin Walters (@Colinwalt74) A Pirelli podium cap plus copies of Codemasters? F1 2013: Classic Edition and F1 Race Stars
Second @Mickrock A Grand Prix Heroes DVD and a Pirelli tyres wristband
Third @Gurpz A Pirelli tyres wristband

  1. 29 points @fer-no65! Well done mate! :D

    Compare that to me – I got 5 ;)

  2. Krichelle (@krichelle) said on 15th October 2013, 17:38

    LOL. Everyone voted Vettel for POLE. These guys really are thinking hard for those prizes!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHHA!!!!!!!!

  3. DaveF1 (@davef1) said on 15th October 2013, 17:41

    Gaaah, I got Vettel, Webber and Alonso right. And of course the race I predict Vettel to get pole he doesn’t. Don’t know what possessed me to put Rosberg in 3rd, guess I really am terrible at this. :P

    Also, who predicted Bianchi for pole?

  4. Krichelle (@krichelle) said on 15th October 2013, 17:42

    By the way, I would like to join in for predictions. However, I do not want to win the prizes. Is that possible??

  5. Ben (@scuderia29) said on 15th October 2013, 18:01

    woop! 11 points, thats my best score yet (that says a lot though)

  6. FullSpe3d (@dryyoshi) said on 15th October 2013, 18:10

    Nice to be on the top scorers list for once! I was thinking about changing the prediction to Webber on pole after Vettel’s problems in FP3… regret that one now!

  7. wsrgo (@wsrgo) said on 15th October 2013, 18:11

    I’ve stayed at 9th for 5 of the last 7 weekends….time to move up!!! Hopefully my home race will yield better results.

  8. Nick (@npf1) said on 15th October 2013, 21:15

    I matched my highscore of 17. Wonder if I’ll end up scoring more than 20 points here this year.

  9. mantresx (@mantresx) said on 15th October 2013, 21:48

    I am one of the 3% who picked Webber for pole, unfortunately I also picked him for the win! :p

  10. PaulT (@pault) said on 15th October 2013, 22:23

    I had Webber on pole (predicted 1:30.950 compared to actual 1:30.915), and all first five places in correct order EXCEPT for first and second. I had Webber to win from Vettel :(

    My head said Vettel to win but my heart said Webber. Should stop being a silly old romantic………….

  11. Palle (@palle) said on 15th October 2013, 22:52

    It would be nice to be able to see not only present rank, but also previous rank in the points table, or a green arrow with the number of places someone have moved up and a red arrow with the number of places someone has been demoted since last race-result, erhm prediction result.
    This time I did the fastest prediction ever, only regrets I chose Hulkenberg as fifth driver instead of Alonso – I ended up with 19 points for VET on pole, VET, WEB, GROS, RAI, HUL, which is by far my best this year.

  12. Mickrock (@mickrock) said on 16th October 2013, 1:18

    WOO HOO! 2nd place! Nice!
    Congrats to Colin Walters who came in first, but that Pirelli podium cap would have fit my fat head much better! :)

  13. I’m usually terrible at these predictions but i genuinely would have gone for something pretty close to this….if i had remembered to make the prediction before qualifying…doh. I was gonna go Vet, Web, Gro, Alo and then was thinking either Ham or Rai, would have chosen Vettel for pole though and was a bit off for the pole time anyway.

    Ah well, sucks to be me i guess. Grats to winners.
