      If I put Murdock X5 would that win me any prizes? Regards all fellow fanatics

    2. The McLaren’s, RBR’s and Ferraris are so even that I’ll just not bother analyzing the situation like I always have and place a random prediction.

      1. I have chosen this path for this race as well. :D
        I’ve been analyzing lots of stuff this season, and most of the time my predictions would look good after qualifying or until Jenson’s pitstop goes wrong or Hamilton comes alive at the Nurburgring. And I always seem to get 5-9 points, be it the most predictable race ever, or Canada. This time, I’m writing their names on pieces of paper and mixing them up, what ever comes out will do because that’s what they’re doing all year on the track anyway. xD

    3. this could be the first time this year I don’t put
      VET for pole and VET for race win.

    4. Keith, I’m having trouble submitting my submissions (yes, I can use that word twice – I’m an English teacher). I fill in the form and click ‘Add Prediction’, but then I get the following message:

      For some reason, I keep hearing it in Alec Baldwin’s voice. Could you please fix this?

      1. Woah, ***?!

        I’m an English teacher
        An English teacher of English? Or what?

        1. An English teacher. Of English. In high schools. I’m not actually English.

          1. So you teach English and you’re not English? Impressive. No, really!

            I hope that helps you fix your odd submitting a submission problem.

      2. Are you serious ?
        If yes, you must have been infected by some sort of malware ! Quite strange…

        1. I’m going to be honest, Targeting F1 fanatic predictions is probably… Not on the malware creators to do lists :D.

      3. Wow, I always not good with English teachers. Now I understand why lol

      4. lol… I just had a friend in Aus email me last night that Pirate Bay was now a pay site… Some serious redirects in Aus land :P

      5. I sincerely hope you copied and pasted that message, otherwise you may be in the wrong profession! ;)

      Other top teams are catching up at this stage of the race and the positions of future winners would likely to be quite uncertain. Considering the large lead gap, Vettel is still in a very comfortable position to maintain his pace and win the championships.

    6. I am totally lost at what im going to do here. Red bulls sandbagging i hope

    7. I predict I’ll score 2 points this weekend.

    8. I scored 12 last weekend, my equal highest! I’m now in the top 400 and coming in hard. Look out! :P

    9. the hardest one of the year…

    10. Vettel pole and Vettel win please. Gone for a bit of a gamble with Rosberg 5th.

    11. The work done on Sebs car during curfew seems to have had a positive effect, for the first time i am going to back Seb pole and win!

    12. I forgot :( Tis too late now, but here’s my prediction.

      Pole: Vettel 01:20.945
      1. Vettel
      2. Hamilton
      3. Alonso
      4. Webber
      5. Massa

    13. Hmm – i got bored this week and took a chance on vettel crashing out….crazy thought I know..

      I got pole right though and I was only out by a few tenths…could be my lucky week!!
