Surfinsoljah made the top prediction for the Korean Grand Prix and wins two F1 DVDs courtesy of Duke Video.

The runners-up prize of an F1 Fanatic mug was claimed by Ninad (Nin13) this weekend.

It was a low-scoring round for the championship front runners – no one in the top ten scored more than ten points, meaning the championship has closed up.

With up to 150 points left to be won only the top 694 of almost 2,000 players are still able to win the championship. But remember there are prizes to be won in every round.

You can get your predictions in for the Indian Grand Prix below. As usual you can edit your prediction as many times as you like up to the start of qualifying.

Find out where you are in the championship standings and have a look at the statistics so far here:

You can enter your predictions for all the remaining rounds below and on the Predictions Championship page (under Community > Predictions Championship in the menu).

You can edit a prediction for any race up until the deadline for entries which is the start of qualifying at each round.

The prizes

There are prizes to be won in every race plus grand prizes for the overall winners at the end of the season.

Whoever gets the highest overall score throughout the year will win a pair of grandstand tickets for the 2012 British Grand Prix.

Here are the prizes in full:

Grand prize: Two grandstands tickets to the 2012 British Grand Prix

    1. A measly 5 points for the third time this season, equalling my worst result! However, 47 points off the lead so the optimist inside me is telling me to think positive!

      Congratulations to @Surfinsoljah and @Nin13 !

      1. Thanks :-)

    2. Wow !! Cool never thought I’d even get runner up spot!! ;-)

    3. 405, so I can still win this thing!

    4. I’m in Button’s position- requiring perfect scores every week with nobody else scoring at all. Bring it on.

    5. This is the second GP in a row that i guess the polesitter with a time within a tenth of a second and all 5 top-finishers.

      But in the COMPLETELY wrong order. :D

      It takes skills to mess up so beautifully.

    6. Plodding along, nearly time to hibernate,

    7. Still in touch at the top after a poor weekend personally, all 5 drivers but none in right order and no pole. Getting nervy now, and India is gonna be a bit of a guessing game!

      1. Exactly the same for me! ;-)))

    8. @Todfod guess who got the same points as you this round…

      1. Lol. I guess that makes it 9 races this year we have had identical scores..

    9. 10pt! …. and 10 places lower

    10. uhh Keith i’m pretty sure there’ a problem with submitting your predictions on the mobile version, cause i got 0 points this race? either that or i was very unlucky with my predictions…

    11. i can still win being in 400 and something spot and i got my second best result in korea i think.

    12. I don’t think it’s that difficult to predict the top 5, as it’s almost the same every race, bar a few that weren’t. The only thing that’s hard is knowing which order they will finish in.

      Anyway, another 12 point score finish for the second time in a row, both after a 16 point finish, so I must be getting better, even if it’s a little too late :P

      317th and rising xD

    13. Falling behind @Katy and @Dan-Thorn… This is not good at all!
