Perfect score for Yud in Canadian GP predictions

F1 Fanatic Predictions Championship

Posted on

| Written by

Yud (@YUD77) became the first player this year to claim a perfect score in a round of the Predictions’ Championship.

They scored a full 50 points for correctly naming Sebastian Vettel as the pole sitter and winner, plus the remaining top five finishers in the correct order. That blasted Yud up the overall points standings, gaining over 1,000 places and is now ranked inside the top 25.

Second place went to @AP04, who is now 12th overall. They also predicted the top five finishers correctly but, like most players, tipped Lewis Hamilton to take pole position.

Quick Nick (@Tasvat001) came out on top in a three-way tie-break for the last prize-winning place. But @Sebsronnie remains the overall leader, just one point away from racking up 100 so far this year:

Position Player Prize
First Yud (@YUD77) A Pirelli podium cap plus copies of Codemasters’ F1 2012 and F1 Race Stars
Second @AP04 A Grand Prix Heroes DVD and a Pirelli tyres wristband
Third Quick Nick (@Tasvat001) A Pirelli tyres wristband

  1. Wow congrats on the perfect score @YUD77

    Vettel is out to get me this season though. Every race I predict him to win he doesn’t, and when I predict someone else to win, Vettel wins >:-(

    1. Could you perhaps predict him to win the next 12 races please? ;-)

  2. Finally, I get some good double figure points. Bad season for my predictions thus far, I hope this is a turning point.

  3. I’m delighted but sad at the same time. I’m delighted for YUD77 who got a perfect score. Congratulations!
    But also sad to see that someone got a perfect score on a weekend. That means that F1 is getting predictable again. I was so happy last year to see my predictions fail when we were getting so much close and unpredictable racing. If I’m not wrong nobody managed to get over 30 points over a single weekend for the 3/4 of the races of 2012. And that was amazing! Now it’s just Vettel/Mercedes on pole and Alonso/Vettel for the win on more that half of the races this year…

    1. The predictions championship standings show quite a lot of players, so someone is bound to get a perfect score at some point. It doesn’t necessarily mean that things are getting too predictable. I remember much more predictable eras in F1 history.

  4. Congrats @YUD77,

  5. Well done, nice work @YUD77 ! You’re doing better than me that’s for sure – 3, 0 and 3 points from the last three rounds! With form like this, I’m staying away from the casino for a while :)

    1. Is it not the other way around? Yud might have used all his luck here…

  6. 456th and proud!

  7. Congratulations @yud77 . Still clinging to the lead but not in a Vettel-esque manner!

  8. Oh dear, 3 points. I think it’s about time I gave up on this championship!

  9. Finally, my first double figure points score of the season! Need to get back on form with last year and turn this up a notch. (I have no idea how I’m supposed to go about doing this)

  10. Got a decent average of around 8.7, if I’m not mistaken the winner last year averaged at 9, so I just need 1 good weekend and I’m there, had a decent last 3 race – 11, 11, 13, but there’s still a long way to go yet. Don’t be fooled by the people in the first 20, it’s only been 7 races so those who scored one or two big points then drifted off are still up there, it’s all about consistency.

    First 11th, then 22nd, then 50th, now 62nd and going down… anyway, what really motivates me is to get one of the race prices… I’m too far from the top to dream on the year prices… unless I do the Yud foreseing thing
