That made the pole position time tie-breaker even more important than ever and the top three players were all little more than one tenth of a second away from the correct time.
The top scorers this week all correctly predicted the pole sitter (two points), plus four of the top finishers (five points) and all five in the correct order (24 points) for a total score of 31. Had just one of them put Valtteri Bottas in fifth place they would have scored the maximum haul of 50.
Here’s who scooped the top prizes for the Spanish Grand Prix:
Position Player Prize
First Dan Lee (@Danlee) A Pirelli podium cap
Codemasters’ F1 2013: Classic Edition
Second David Cantu (@Bugsracer) A Grand Prix Heroes DVD
A Pirelli tyres wristband
Third Marcin Coles (@Magic-marcin) A Pirelli tyres wristband
