2014 British GP Predictions Championship results

F1 Fanatic Predictions Championship

Valtteri Bottas, Lewis Hamilton, Daniel Ricciardo, Silverstone, 2014Eleven Predictions Championship players shared the top scores for the British Grand Prix in what proved a fairly low-scoring round.

With most players not unreasonably expecting another Mercedes one-two, Nico Rosberg’s retirement spoiled more than a few predictions.

The pole position time tie-breaker had to be used to decide the top three – and for the first time ever even that wasn’t enough. With two players tied for third place, another means of separating them had to be found. Third place and the final prize was eventually given to the player who had posted their prediction first – which happened to be current points leader @Djqz. Commiserations to fourth-placed player Karl Benz.

Here are this week’s winners in full.

Position Player Prize
First @Mads A Pirelli podium cap
Codemasters’ F1 2013: Classic Edition
Second Fsoud (@Udm7) A Grand Prix Heroes DVD
A Pirelli tyres wristband
Third @Djqz A Pirelli tyres wristband

    Kudos to BerndMaylander for correctly predicting a HAM-BOT-RIC podium!

    Closest I’ve ever been to getting top score.

  5. craig-o (@craig-o) said on 8th July 2014, 17:38

    Oh well… Maybe next time! I’ve come close once already this season!

  6. Ratboy (@ratboy) said on 8th July 2014, 18:26

    I’d like to point out that while I compete I can’t actually win the prizes due to being a family relation, this is why my pole time will always be 1:11.111

  7. Pawel (@marik) said on 8th July 2014, 18:33

    ah, one geardbox, one accident and one Sebastian probably robbed me of perfect prediction
    but it’s good anyway, it was pure fun to watch Bottas storming through the field and then on the podium

  8. Pink Peril said on 8th July 2014, 23:14

    Just when I think I’m going to get the jump on the rest of you, Nico’s gearbox explodes :(

    I missed being a winner by two points…
