    Congratulations to all the winners, and especially to @Adaptalis for the tickets. Got to say, that’s one hell of a prize you offer Keith, and really appreciate you giving all of us a chance to win it. Great guy.

  2. Fer no.65 (@fer-no65) said on 1st December 2013, 14:21

    @fer-no65 Pos 558, 107 points
    @vettel1 Pos 565, 106 points

    Almost equally rubbish. :P

  3. Well done to @Adaptalis, @MrPranz, @Piet for predictions, and big thanks to @keithcollantine for the game and all gifted prizes, though I never won – my bad.

    I’m far away: 170th overall with 149 hardly-earned points. Did not vote for Bahrain GP.

    Well done. This contest is a fun way to enjoy the F1 season. Made every race this year even though sometimes I had to put in a prediction a week or more in advance. Getting the top 5 finishing order was the toughest challenge this year. Oh well, tickled to be in the top 100, that was my goal. Maybe next year.

  5. Just outside the top 100. I went with a crazy prediction for Brazil, unfortunately it didn’t pay off. It was a solid season, though. I didn’t win anything, but at least I was consistent!

  6. Dan_the_McLaren_fan (@dan_the_mclaren_fan) said on 1st December 2013, 15:36

    Awful season for me, I finished only 200th, my lowest rating in 4 years. I still managed to get two good scores at the end, but without them, the final socre would have been worse.

    But next year anything is possible, and maybe I will finally win a prize!

    Congratulations for the winners, and thank you Keith for organizing this contest!

  7. Paul (@frankjaeger) said on 1st December 2013, 15:39

    Thanks for putting on the competition guys! Signaled the start, and added a little extra excitement to race weekends

  8. Mike Dee (@mike-dee) said on 1st December 2013, 16:31

    Thanks for the competition! It has been fun. I started very poorly but ended up at rank 11, with which I am very happy, even though I didn’t win any prizes or was ever within the top scorers of any race.

  9. Ben (@scuderia29) said on 1st December 2013, 17:25

    588th..you shouldnt even be classified when you finish this low lol

  10. MrPranz (@mrpranz) said on 1st December 2013, 17:32

    Congrats to @Adaptalis and @Piet!

    Thank you for the competition and prizes too!

  11. mantresx (@mantresx) said on 1st December 2013, 18:26

    Thanks @keithcollantine this is a great game to play, I was rubbish here on F1F but you gave the idea to bet real money and at the end of this season I did make a profit from that!! cheers

  12. psychy (@psychy) said on 1st December 2013, 19:25

    Congratulations to @adaptalis @mrpranz and @piet

    And very special thanks to @keithcollantine !!!

  13. gnrpoison (@gnrpoison) said on 1st December 2013, 19:32

    was a good championship and was happy to be second at the Singapore round, loved my dvd, however there has been no sign of my wristband so hope it was not lost in the post. :-(

  14. Master firelee (@master-firelee) said on 1st December 2013, 19:56

    If this was a predict the quali results I reckon I might have done better but ohwell 420th isn’t bad but can’t remember if that is better than last year for me.

  15. Deej92 (@deej92) said on 1st December 2013, 20:03

    It seems I saved the best ’til last with 19 points – I’m extremely chuffed with that! My best score before then was Asutralia – which really wouldn’t have looked great on my part!
