2014 Malaysian GP Predictions Championship results

F1 Fanatic Predictions Championship

Nico Rosberg, Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel, Sepang International Circuit, 2014Three players tied with perfect scores in the second round of the Predictions Championship.

Hayden Freeth, @BrockEllett and @Brouard21 each picked up a maximum 50 points after correctly predictions Lewis Hamilton would win from pole position, with Nico Rosberg, Sebastian Vettel, Fernando Alonso and Nico Hulkenberg completing the top five.

The pole position time tie-breaker was used to separate and although all of them were over 20 seconds out – having not expected qualifying to be hit by rain – Hayden Freeth had the closest prediction and therefore scooped the top prize. Here’s what they won:

First Hayden Freeth (@Dossy) A Pirelli podium cap
Codemasters’ F1 2013: Classic Edition
Second @BrockEllett A Grand Prix Heroes DVD
A Pirelli tyres wristband

  3. Ivan (@wpinrui) said on 1st April 2014, 17:11

    Daheck! 31 points?! I was not expecting that!

  4. Max Jacobson (@vettel1) said on 1st April 2014, 17:50

    How the hell am I 17th‽

  5. Rigi (@rigi) said on 1st April 2014, 21:47

    i’m very bad at this, however i can see some improvements! my highest score last year was 11, which i have now equalled by the second race this season! if i keep it up i should win if not this year, then the year after.

  6. Chris (@cgturbo) said on 1st April 2014, 22:06

    I was so hoping for that clock.
    It looks gorgeous XD

    Congrats to those scoring 50/50! Very impressive :)

  7. Deej92 (@deej92) said on 1st April 2014, 22:17

    31 points! That’s my highest ever score by miles, and joint 24th is the highest I’ve ever been.
    I’m enjoying this while I can as I can safely say it won’t last!

  8. Ivan B (@njoydesign) said on 1st April 2014, 22:42

    Ahhh, I’m having to much faith in Ferrari. Still, 21 point is much better than 5 for the 1st round))

  9. electrolite (@electrolite) said on 2nd April 2014, 0:02

    I had Rosberg, Hamilton, Alonso and Hulkenberg in my top 5… and came out with 3 points in Malaysia! Somehow, I manage to be so bad at this every single year…

  10. DaveD (@daved) said on 2nd April 2014, 5:19

    Hey, I’m in the top 15%! I’m going to take a picture of the results and frame it because I’ll never be that close again LOL

  11. If it wasn’t for Ricciardo and raikkonen I would have had a perfect weekend. I hope I can do better than 12th this season.

  12. Keith Campbell (@keithedin) said on 3rd April 2014, 8:19

    302nd! Ok, maybe i need to start predicting what i ‘think’ will happen, rather than what i ‘want’ to happen ;)

  13. Mcquiz (@mcquiz) said on 4th April 2014, 21:40

    I’m really rubbish at this. At the very least I doubled my score from 4 to 8. I’d really like get half the points in a race.
