A huge number of players correctly predicted Sebastian Vettel’s Indian Grand Prix success.
Yet despite that this wasn’t a very high-scoring round of the Predictions Championship. Two players shared the top score of 19 and Tamsin Shuker won the pole position tie breaker – impressively her predictions was just five thousandths of a second off Vettel’s actual time.
@Loup-Garou therefore took second ahead of @Mitchibob, who won another tie-breaker for third place.
Having lost the lead of the championship in the last round @Sebsronnie hit back in India, taking four points out of @Adaptalis. Even in this late stage in the championship there are still over 1,000 players who could take the top prize of tickets to next year’s British Grand Prix.
Here’s the details of what the top three players won in the Indian Grand Prix round:
|First||Tamsin Shuker (@Supershuker)||A Pirelli podium cap plus copies of Codemasters?óÔé¼Ôäó F1 2013: Classic Edition and F1 Race Stars|
|Second||@Loup-Garou||A Grand Prix Heroes DVD and a Pirelli tyres wristband|
|Third||@Mitchibob||A Pirelli tyres wristband|

So close to getting 13 points – putting Massa in place of Alonso would’ve done it!

A grand total of 6! If only Webber hadn’t retired I’d have had him and Grosjean in the correct positions :/
29th October 2013, 17:20
10 points. Had been considering putting Rosberg in the top five, but..there you go..Still, joint 8th overall isn’t bad..
29th October 2013, 17:41
@wsrgo, same here. I had pole, Vettel, and Grosjean right.
29th October 2013, 18:02
@adrianmorse Was a topsy-turvy race in terms of results..
29th October 2013, 17:37
I think I’ve become worse as the season has gone on. Australia was my best score.
Just a thought – how about allowing us to predict the pole time, and then 2nd to 7th instead of pole-sitter and winner for the remaining races? ;)

@deej92 I don’t want to mess around with the points system for no good reason. I’m not the FIA :-)
30th October 2013, 11:10
I must say that this year is not by best – I might do an Alonso (no, not throwing my toys out of the pram) and just sit on my points for a couple of races now, because I like the number (a straight 100). Not making a helmet for it though
29th October 2013, 18:20
11 points, best round this season :P.
29th October 2013, 18:42
10 points, not bad, considering the result was a bit crazy.
Anyway, only three chances left to win F1 2013. I’m afrad I’m not going to win it :(
29th October 2013, 19:57
Well, RIP Isohunt which gave me my copy :P
29th October 2013, 18:45
So I just need to take a massive sprint from p. 697 and those tickets are mine!
29th October 2013, 19:02
I really need to up my game in the predictions championship, although 10 points seems to have been a fairly good score this round.
I need to stop predicting what I want to happen and start predicting what I really think will happen :)
29th October 2013, 19:26
A nice twist would be to award points according to how popular the choice was. Like odds in gambling. So if the choice is obvious and 90% choose Vettel for the win, few points would be awarded for getting it right. But if someone chooses, say, Perez to win and he does, it would award more points.
Max Jacobson (@vettel1)
29th October 2013, 19:59
Complexities I suppose as Keith said earlier ;)
29th October 2013, 19:47
Where can I look up my points?:)
Max Jacobson (@vettel1)
29th October 2013, 20:02
@sunlounger here, and use Ctrl-F on PC, Cmd-F on Mac or the search bar on Apple touch devices and type your @mention (so yours would be of course @sounlounger) – it should then locate you in the standings and you can check your points! (I assume you’ll have many more than myself :P)
29th October 2013, 20:46
Wrong! It was only my second attempt:)
29th October 2013, 20:47
29th October 2013, 19:59
My championship is going worse than Webber’s. I put Hulk in the top 5 and he abandoned. I guess nobody saw Perez coming!
30th October 2013, 1:54
Wohoooo 100 points overall
30th October 2013, 12:59
@keithcollantine if we win and dont want the F1 game (because we might already own it), can we kindly turn down the prize?
30th October 2013, 15:21
3 points..i knew i’d done badly this race, equals my worst ever points
