  1. 2 races, 7 points in total … sigh

  2. Keith, is it possible to sort people on the same points in alphabetical order like previous years? Makes it so much easier to see how close to the bottom I am!

    1. Try CTRL+F

      1. ignore previous post.

  3. Holly sh… cow, this is incredible!
    Needless to say, I’m happy Vettel ignored team orders. :P

  4. oh Kimi why did you do this!!! Anyway, this is my best score ever!!!!

    In a matter of a race, my rank doubled.

  6. Hmm so joint 807 with 11 points :) Not a bad start considering it was my first time. Could have been higher had Raikkonen got his setup issues sorted and performed better.

  7. Kimi and Alonso did no good to my prediction

    1. A bit like that for me too. And Rosberg should have pushed on.

      Ah, well, I did get 4 times as many points this second round, so I should see it as an improvement

    putting Alonso to win did nothing to help my score this weekend! aha

    1. @scuderia29 – annoyingly I also did that based on Red Bull’s tyre deg in Australia! Annoyingly, since usually I’m optimistic Vettel can win!

      1. Ben (@scuderia29)
        27th March 2013, 23:51

        haha he may have been able to win was it not for the incident…some things are just unpredictable!

  9. Have to laugh at ‘hamiltonsnumberone’ prediction ( VET VET WEB RAI ALO MAS )

    If you thought Hamiton was number one when you made your username, why do you not have faith in him to get in the top 5? Or are you betting against your self, so that if he does well your happy, but if he crash’s out its ok because your f1fantic prediction does better?

  10. Malaysia scores didn’t calculate correctly for me. My score for MAL shows 0 points but I had Vettel and Hamilton predicted in the top-5.

    1. @blue2gnt Drop me a line and I’ll look into it:

      Reporting a technical problem

  11. i am nailing my 5 point average again this year!

    i would have done better, but the tires/team orders/wrong pit/my inability to bolt wheels on the car…..

  12. she’d get button as well if he had not that problem in the pit, impressive!

  13. 14 points..No. 358(tied obviously). The only thing I got correct was Vettel on pole..
