    So we have the young drivers’ test coming up on tuesday and wednesday, and I’m making a predictions championship for it. Scoring is the same as in the F1Fanatic predictions championship, apart from the pole position part:

    Correctly naming one/two/three/four/five driver/s who finish in the top five: 1/2/3/5/8 points

    Correctly predicting where one/two/three/four/five driver/s finish: 2/6/14/24/40 points

    There will also be a tie-breaker with predicting the fastest time set – if two predictors score the same amount of points, the one who is closer to the actual time will win. There are no prizes unfortunately!

    So predict the top 5 (from both days) and the fastest time set. You have time until Monday midnight British time, which is around 24 hours from now.

    Here is a list of drivers that will participate, although I’m not sure if it’s entirely correct:

    Red Bull: Daniel Ricciardo

    McLaren: Oliver Turvey, Gary Paffett

    Ferrari: Jules Bianchi

    Mercedes: Sam Bird

    Renault: Mikhail Aleshin, Jerome dAmbrosio

    Williams: Pastor Maldonado, Valteri Bottas, Dean Stoneman

    Force India: Yelmer Buurman, Antonio Felix da Costa, Paul di Resta

    Sauber: Sergio Perez, Esteban Gutierrez

    Toro Rosso: Jean-Eric Vergne

    Lotus: Rodolfo Gonzalez, Vladimir Arabadzhiev

    Virgin: Jerome d’Ambrosio, Liuz Razia, Rio Haryanto

    Hispania: Pastor Maldonado

    My prediction:

    Best time: 1.41:497

    1. Ricciardo

    2. di Resta

    3. Bianchi

    4. d’Ambrosio

    5. Bird

    Haha! I’ll help you out. No idea what the best time will be but I predict that the top 5 will be:



    Paffett (hardly seemes like a young driver anymore!)

    3. Bianchi

    4. Di Resta

    5. Really don’t know….I’ll say Gutierrez

    I expect Di Resta to be very stong as he’s had a lot of miles in the car this year along with Paffett who deserves a real shot at F1.

    Ricciardo will be fast but not as fast as you’d think a red bull to be and Maldonardo and Gutierrez will have decent showings.

    Problem is the track evolution of the two days makes it hard to judge their relative performances.
