    2. Brave guess

      1. Brave guess

        I think that applies to all 3 of us! :P

  4. vetel sticks it on pole but has a problem in the race, then webber is unstoppable.

  5. Hopefully some sort of miracle happens: from a boring race to a unpredictable one leaving smiles on all f1 fans.

  6. Can’t post, telling me my time input for P1 is incorrect, its probably me!

    1. You have to follow the format: 1:20.000 or what ever time You believe in.
      It has to be a : and a dot .

      1. 1:20.000

        Thats my Pole Position time for every race, I’m not a film critic so I can’t be bothered to use the power of decimal points!.

  7. It was me I’m an eejit

  8. Vettel Pole, then cruises to victory. I’m not going to try and be different, it’s inevitable, regardless of Webber’s FP times.

    1. Well look at all of the people that have been fastest in FP2 other than Vettel. None of them have got pole this year.
      I fear you could be correct. The support for Webber is wishful thinking but you never know, it is one on Webbers better tracks, but I still expect Vettel (by 0.2 ahead).
      Hamilton could be a dark horse.

  9. hoping that webber’s feeling confident cos he drives better when he is and therefore might outqualify vettel. hoping that hamilton will win but have resigned myself to a boring season dominated by red bull. failing that, would love to see rosberg achieve his first win but think there’d have to be some kind of major pile up at the front for that to happen. enjoy.

  10. One of the more boring tracks, I’ll give this one a miss.

    1. the race?

  11. Did my predictions monday after turkey so I can’t forget like last time

  12. Keith, any chance of having the table of everyone elses predictions put back up?

    1. Yes. I used to enjoy comparing my predictions with my Twitter friends. ;)

  13. Fingers crossed to be runner up again. Need another mug so I’ve got one for home as well as for the office. Quality piece, and holds a veritable bucket load of tea!

    1. ;-) Not envious at all.

  14. I’ve given up on predicting what i hope will happen and this time gone for the inevitable.

    Think that the timer is a bit off – shows that there is nearly 12 hours left from my computer….. which would be well after qualifying. Either way – I’ll make my predictions around 6 am Saturday morning EST.

    Good Luck Everyone!

      Hmm. I think you’re right. It’s set to expire at 3pm UK time on Saturday. Should make predicting the Pole sitter a bit easier!

      1. yes, you are right, looks like prediction deadline expires after Qualifying finishes.
        i guess its mistake and will be corrected soon. ???

        1. I’ll enter mind after qualifying then. I bet I still get pole wrong :-)

    2. Have fixed that so it’s showing the correct time now.

  16. Are the race results based on over the line results, or do they consider any protests?

    1. That would mean we might have to wait for a month to know, wouldn’t it, if someone doesn’t get the EBD working and decides to instead complain about all teams using it.

  17. Keith, in the confirmation e-mail it still says:
    “You can amend your predictions at any time before the start of practice three at this page”.
    Should be before the start of qualifying.

    1. Thanks I’ll look into that.

  18. First two seem easy, but then… Will Alonso pull it off to become third in his home Grandprix? The McLaren’s also look strong all weekend and then you have good old Schumacher, good performance last year here and looking good in FP3.

    I guess the slightest hint of his old self is enough for me to put the old man in my predictions, while I vow to never fall for it again when the results are published. Ah the routine..

  19. couldn’t choose between vettel and webber for pole, went with webber at first then decided with vettel and just missed out on the pole time by 0.003secs.
