  1. I think I’m going to try and end up third on purpose because I love those wristbands! I have little dreams ;)
    Participating from outside the UK isn’t a problem, is it correct?

    1. So @keith you’re the one who got all those Pirellii’s wristband we all wanted? lol

      Great rewards this year, you improve year by year mate!

    2. @carlitox

      Participating from outside the UK isn’t a problem, is it correct?

      Absolutely it’s open to everyone and I’m very pleased to have found so many prize suppliers who are able to support that. It means a lot to me because I know we have a very international crowd here!

      1. @keithcollantine That’s great! I want those wristbands at least, but the Silverstone tickets won’t bother me hehe.

      2. A great job with the prizes @keithcollantine, although it would be lovely if you could get Pirelli to give out those Cowboy hats to the winners of the Austin round :-)

      how we all do love free stuff hahaha! this competition would be tricky as the unpredictable grid and sure it will be fun! a prize would be stellar achievement!
      @keithcollantine, I hope you don’t mind to ship the prize to Indonesia if I got some :D

  2. I’ve been hunting down those Pirelli Wristbands for a long time now. I have to get a second place this time, instead of a three-something-hundredth!

  3. Are there stetsons for the US Grand Prix…?

    1. I hope so!

  4. Great prizes, can’t wait. Hopefully I win something, last 3 seasons were terrible for me.

  5. Can’t wait!!!!!! you guys are the only ones who understand the anticipation of a new season :)

    Checked the website for second place. Now I want to win so I can buy 166 BAR Honda pens :P

    1. Or 56% of Jean Christophe Boullion’s 1998 BAR Test Suit.
      Decisions… decisions…

  7. Great Prizes there, hope it’s easier to predict this year, then again I don’t at the same time :s

  8. This is easily the coolest, most enjoyable F1 competition out there! Also the most frustrating at times ;)

    It’s been a loooooong time since my last race win: https://www.racefans.net/2009/07/14/f1-fanatic-predictions-championship-gets-even-closer-after-round-seven/ – surely I’m due at least a podium this season :/

  9. Great stuff Keith – hmm….play it safe and aim for the Championship prizes or predict wildly and hope for a one off race win?

    1. @bpacman Usually, going for race wins will help you go for the Championship too. Most of the people who ended the season in the Top 12 (or got painfully close to it, like me) usually had at least 1 (more often 2) Top 3 finishes in the course of the season. After all, majority of your points will come from those Top 3 finishes. :)

  10. Really great prizes ! The wristbands are a nice addition for sure. Hope this will be a good year all around !

  11. Great to see the positive feedback from everyone, glad you like the prizes!

  12. First time participating… Hoping for a Grand Prix Hero’s DVD… :-D

  13. I used to keep reading the updates during the last season but somehow never got down to participating! This season promises to be really interesting despite minimal rule changes but changed driver line-ups and Pirelli’s tires will create a spectacle. Let’s hope I win as well :)

  14. Damn! these are some cool swag. Last season started out great for me i.e in the top 50s, but then it went horribly wrong. Got to get it together this season. Thanks @keithcollantine, for making our obsession so rewarding!

  15. kudos on the comp’ @keithcollantine, great site, and lot’s of respect to the work that has went into it.

    My first time, excited. I’ll probably be at 200th place in the standings, but i’m giving it a go for fun. Great competition Keith :-)

    This is gonna be fun! Has anybody ever gotten the top 5 right before?
    @keithcollantine Thanks for making the prizes available to worldwide members. I would play this for the fun of it so prizes just make it all the more better.

    @striderfc Get in on this bro, will make watching the races even more involving when your really pulling for results.

  18. I guess I’m the first to post a prediction! Some 18 or so hours before the FP1 session, I’ve predicted a pole time of 01:23.850…

    1. @sebsronnie Actually you’re the 314th! Some people have also begun adding predictions for later rounds. It’s a handy tactic in case you miss one for some reason.

      1. Whoa – even for later rounds?!?!? Clearly I am not the only one with EF1WS (Extreme F1 Withdrawal Syndrome)! It’ll be very interesting to see whether I have to change my choices after FP3…

    This prizes are GOOD.Looking Forward

  20. Is there any way to amend your prediction?

  21. Oops – worked it out! Duh!
