2017 Spanish Grand Prix Predictions Championship results

F1 Fanatic Predictions ChampionshipPosted on Author Keith Collantine

With two big names colliding at turn one and two Force Indias appearing in the top five, the Spanish Grand Prix produced a low-scoring round of the Predictions Championship.

The top prize was scooped by @Bobwhosaysni, the only player to score more than 11 points last weekend. With dozens of players tied for the runner-up spot the pole position time tie-breaker was used to decide the other prizes, which went to @veldaarF1 in second place and @Eanton32 in third.

@Racerdude7730 holds a slightly increased lead at the top of the overall standings as we pass the one-quarter mark in this year’s championship.

There are prizes to win every race weekend and at the end of the season for the top scorers. The F1 Fanatic Predictions Championship is free to enter. You will need an F1 Fanatic account to place so sign up here if you haven’t got one.

The top-scoring player in the 2017 championship will win a very special prize courtesy of Memento Exclusives: this genuine rear wing endplate from a Force India Formula One car.

This race-used part saw action during the 2015 season which at the time was the team's most successful campaign. Sergio Perez and Nico Hulkenberg took them to fifth in the constructors' championship.

The black end plate features intricate aerodynamic detailing which is typical of modern high-performance single-seaters. Worth £525, it retains its original branding and comes in a 94cm by 74cm frame.

The Memento design team uses only the best materials to create beautiful sports memorabilia, which will be admired for generations to come. Authenticity of memorabilia is of absolute importance. For this reason, Memento Exclusives works directly with the teams to guarantee the heritage of every item.

        I really thought someone would get lucky and snatch the lead from me. I won’t feel comfortable till I’m ahead by 50 which will never happen. Does anyone know the biggest win margin over the years when it’s over?

        1. Haha, lets hope for the best @racerdude7730,
