Rookie win for Peteris in Singapore Predictions round

Predictions Championship

Posted on

| Written by

Peteris (@Spicais666) racked up the highest score in the Singapore round of the Predictions Championship.

It was a particularly impressive win given this was his first appearance in the championship after he joined the site on Friday. Correctly predicting the pole sitter and the top four finishers earned Peteris 31 points and a prize of a 1975 Autocourse eBook.

A two-way tie for second and third place was won by @Toddbarden, who moves up to fourth in the championship and claimed a Grand Prix Heroes DVD as a prize. Third place and a PJ Tierney F1 poster was won by Fernando (@Alonso2012).

Sebastian Vettel was the overwhelming favourite for pole position, picked by two-thirds of players, but he was beaten to it by Lewis Hamilton. However over half correctly picked Vettel to win the race.

@Zantex remains in the lead of the championship and pulled a further point ahead. See the updated points standings in full here:

Here are the predictions and scores for the nine highest-scoring players in this race:

  1. @Alonso2012

    Congrats :)

    Some posters are sold out, but feel free to pick any in-stock A3 poster and I’ll send it out when I can:

    You can send me your address via the contact form.

  2. It’s not just Hamilton’s championship hopes that took a hit when his gearbox failed on Sunday. My HAM VET ALO BUT DIR prediction was looking pretty good with Hamilton leading (ok, Maldonado had still to retire), but now I scored a paltry 7 points. Cruel luck ;-)

    1. I had the same prediction but I correctly predicted Hamilton for pole.

      1. I did have Hamilton for pole, and then I changed it to Vettel after FP3 :-(

    2. Yiiiiipppiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeee !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      That was my 1st prediction & won 19 points… :) :) :)

  3. I am so chuffed with this result and now my standing overall. Consistency does seem to be key in F1, watch out @Zantex coming to get you

  4. @spicais666 Latvia wins! Congratulations, Pēteri!

  5. @keithcollantine I still have not received my DVD from the Monaco round.

  6. First time I forgot to make my predictions, remembered two minutes after Q1 was underway :(

  7. Damn, forgetting to put in my prediction was quite costly! I’ve dropped 40 places :/

  8. Absolutely thrilled to be in the top nine this week!

  9. Gah, if Hamilton hadn’t retired I would have been on for a good score :(

  10. Shame I forgot to make predictions this weekend :(

  11. 194th aint so bad considering I didnt enter 6 rounds

  12. 326th. Yay?

    4 points. A stunning weekend from me yet again. Vettel let me down badly and Di Resta bagging 5th scuppered things.

    1. Beat you! I got into 242nd with 8 points!
