    Congratulations to the winners and thanks for the competition! Nearly forgot to put up my predictions for Brazil, but scored 19 points, my highest score of the season and jumped from 200-something to 140, if I remember correctly!

    Congratulations to Adaptalis – well done

    Bit disappointed at losing out on the top 13 after a season where I was mostly in the top 10. But, still, this was my first full season of participation so…yeah, I’ll take it..:)

    Thanks for running that Keith, a good non-financial way to spice up each race. 164 points! I can live with that after accidentally putting Charles Pic in the top 5 at one race and not putting Vettle as winner for three races when it was bleeding obvious he was on a roll.

    Congratulations to @adaptalis! If only the season were 16 races long LOL! Looking forward to next year.

    Many thanks to @keithcollantine for the great prices.
    Congratulations to @adaptalis and @mrpranz, the last 2 races cost me the win, unfortunately.

    Follow me on twitter to see when my prediction tool is launched.

    Congratulations to all of the winners this year. I’ll take pride in knowing I was the first loser. Great competition, looking forward to next year. Thanks Keith, always enjoy it!

    Thanks everyone! @philereid, @jeff1s, @mrpranz, @psychy, @verstappen, @tobinen, @sebsronnie

    Especially thanks to @keithcollantine for hosting the competition.

    58th :'( that last race murdered me I was aiming for 171 points at the start of the season and ended with 169, better luck next season I guess, I didn’t even get a prize for my best race which I lost out to 1st through the pole time by 0.5s.
