There were 16 players tied for third place and @Solidg emerged on top with a pole position prediction which was just six thousandths of a second of Sebastian Vettel’s actual time.

  1. I’m out of the championship after this round. With such a predictable race, my haul of 9 points was not enough to keep up with the leaders. I had Vettel, Webber, Grosjean, and Hamilton in the top 5 (also Rosberg), but all in the wrong place except for Vettel.

  2. Have to say that this predictions round had me on the edge of my seat throughout the race. After qualifying, I was very optimistic given that the top 5 were very close to my predictions. Even though I’m not a Webber fan, I was so wanting him to get passed Hamilton, and when he did I was extremely happy.

    Then came the endless waiting of actually wanting the GP to finish just so that I could have a perfect score. When Alonso passed Hulkenberg…I was really not happy, but Hulkenberg catching him back up and almost passing him…

    Congrats to the winners, I’m very happy for them, and my score as well, but those great prizes continue to elude me :P

  3. I don’t enter these very often, but I was sure that I had a great score, just needed to swap one Mercedes driver for another

  4. 21 points, not bad at all :P

  5. congrats to @mrpranz. deserved to be on top.perfect score!

    1. Thank you!

  6. Did I seriously score 24 points? I thought I had it all wrong… I mean, I’m awesome! :D

  7. Good luck to all those who could possible win the grand prize to Silverstone! And good luck to everyone for the final race predictions as well! May the best predictor win! :D

    My top five: VET, WEB, GRO, HAM, HUL Pole: VET
    Real top six: VET, GRO, WEB, HAM, ALO, HUL

    So close to 50 points, I ended up with 13…Maybe next time!

  9. just like everyone other than red bull…im just looking ahead to next year, as ive done really very badly in this years prediction championship aha

  10. @mrpranz has averaged 26.5 points over the last 4 races. That’s a lot more than I’ve managed to score for even a single event this year. Crazy good!

    1. My best for a single event was 13 in Singapore! I’m averaging 7 and one-third. That guy is almost four times as good as me!

  11. really bad at this. 100 pts from 19 races, haha.

    1. 101 I think I’m on – welcome to the terrible club!

  12. Man finally I have scored a big haul of points, 24, and still I’m not even close to the top scorers of this race. haha
    Had I just turned around GRO and HAM I would have the perfect score -_-

    But congrats to the winners and good luck at the last race

  13. Wow, equal third. Pretty sure I’ll never manage that again.

  14. I thought I would win something this time. I got 31 points and I’m in that list. I’m gutted, depressed becuase I don’t think I’ll be able to emulate this success anytime again.
