Mark Webber, Sebastian Vettel, Fernando Alonso, Interlagos, 2013@Adaptalis won the 2013 F1 Fanatic Predictions Championship and did it in fine style after making the best prediction of the final round.

That means they scoop the grand prize in the 2013 F1 Fanatic Predictions Championship: Grandstand tickets for them and a friend for next year’s British Grand Prix.

@MrPranz headed the points going into the final race after a perfect score in the United States Grand Prix, but slipped back to second place overall. They win ??200 to spend on grand prix memorabilia from Memento Exclusive.

And in third place in the final standings @Piet has won a Formula One painting of their choice from Rob Ijbema’s Car-a-Day website.

Another player also scored 31 points with their Brazilian Grand Prix predictions but @Adaptalis had a better pole position time prediction and therefore won the tie breaker. Third place in the Brazilian Grand Prix round went to @Seaney_T.

  1. Congratulations to all the winners, and especially to @Adaptalis for the tickets. Got to say, that’s one hell of a prize you offer Keith, and really appreciate you giving all of us a chance to win it. Great guy.

      Beat that one!!! :P

      My only consolation prize is my PJ poster won last year and my … cough **original* copy of F12013 full edition

      1. @omarr-pepper nice ! my only consolation is scoring 29 points at Japan :P one of the 4 times I scored double digits !!

    2. @vettel1 won the whose worst at it competition by 1 point . Wow. I am in between @fer-no65 and @omarr-pepper . I have 131 points placed 337 position . I think that is also worse enough. I flopped in Brazil ;-) . @wsrgo rocks ! Congrats for the top 15 !

        congrats to @wsrgo and @hamilfan they know how to play this game the right way!!!

    3. @fer-no65 congratulations to you on being one point better than me – that’s about the only consolation I could give you! ;)

      Yep @hamilfan, completely useless haha! Hopefully I’ll be better at predicting the unpredictable next year ;)

      1. @vettel1 I’ll race you next year FULL ON ! miss a race, and the round is cancelled.

        you just CAN’T get MY title for Worst Prediction of the Year..

        (it might also be an incentive to actually do well, for a change :P)

        1. I actually missed two rounds this season so game fully on as far as I’m concerned :P

        2. @fer-no65 I think you cheated, including Chilton, Bianchi, Vandergarde and Pic at every race and reaching 100+ points ? Or you limit yourself at 1 driver per manufacturer ?
          Personnal score : 238 th => 141 points, Japan : 19 as a “best” … Leading you at worst best score.

          Soon we will have andae23 joining with all kind of stats and facts

          1. @jeanrien I’m very honest about my bad predictions !! I’d imagine if I predicted a normal result, Chilton, Buanchi, Van der Garde and Pic would finish in the tiop 4 !!

  3. Well done to @Adaptalis, @MrPranz, @Piet for predictions, and big thanks to @keithcollantine for the game and all gifted prizes, though I never won – my bad.

    I’m far away: 170th overall with 149 hardly-earned points. Did not vote for Bahrain GP.

  4. Well done. This contest is a fun way to enjoy the F1 season. Made every race this year even though sometimes I had to put in a prediction a week or more in advance. Getting the top 5 finishing order was the toughest challenge this year. Oh well, tickled to be in the top 100, that was my goal. Maybe next year.

  5. Just outside the top 100. I went with a crazy prediction for Brazil, unfortunately it didn’t pay off. It was a solid season, though. I didn’t win anything, but at least I was consistent!

  6. Awful season for me, I finished only 200th, my lowest rating in 4 years. I still managed to get two good scores at the end, but without them, the final socre would have been worse.

    But next year anything is possible, and maybe I will finally win a prize!

    Congratulations for the winners, and thank you Keith for organizing this contest!

  7. Thanks for putting on the competition guys! Signaled the start, and added a little extra excitement to race weekends

  8. Thanks for the competition! It has been fun. I started very poorly but ended up at rank 11, with which I am very happy, even though I didn’t win any prizes or was ever within the top scorers of any race.

  9. shouldnt even be classified when you finish this low lol

  10. Congrats to @Adaptalis and @Piet!

    Thank you for the competition and prizes too!

  11. Thanks @keithcollantine this is a great game to play, I was rubbish here on F1F but you gave the idea to bet real money and at the end of this season I did make a profit from that!! cheers

  12. Congratulations to @adaptalis @mrpranz and @piet

    And very special thanks to @keithcollantine !!!

  13. was a good championship and was happy to be second at the Singapore round, loved my dvd, however there has been no sign of my wristband so hope it was not lost in the post. :-(

  14. If this was a predict the quali results I reckon I might have done better but ohwell 420th isn’t bad but can’t remember if that is better than last year for me.

  15. It seems I saved the best ’til last with 19 points – I’m extremely chuffed with that! My best score before then was Asutralia – which really wouldn’t have looked great on my part!

  16. And a special congratulation for your nickname as well @adaptalis

  17. Congratulations to the winners and thanks for the competition! Nearly forgot to put up my predictions for Brazil, but scored 19 points, my highest score of the season and jumped from 200-something to 140, if I remember correctly!

  18. Congratulations to Adaptalis – well done

  19. Bit disappointed at losing out on the top 13 after a season where I was mostly in the top 10. But, still, this was my first full season of participation so…yeah, I’ll take it..:)

  20. Thanks for running that Keith, a good non-financial way to spice up each race. 164 points! I can live with that after accidentally putting Charles Pic in the top 5 at one race and not putting Vettle as winner for three races when it was bleeding obvious he was on a roll.

  21. Congratulations to @adaptalis! If only the season were 16 races long LOL! Looking forward to next year.

  22. Many thanks to @keithcollantine for the great prices.
    Congratulations to @adaptalis and @mrpranz, the last 2 races cost me the win, unfortunately.

    Follow me on twitter to see when my prediction tool is launched.

  23. Congratulations to all of the winners this year. I’ll take pride in knowing I was the first loser. Great competition, looking forward to next year. Thanks Keith, always enjoy it!

  24. Thanks everyone! @philereid, @jeff1s, @mrpranz, @psychy, @verstappen, @tobinen, @sebsronnie

    Especially thanks to @keithcollantine for hosting the competition.

  25. 58th :'( that last race murdered me I was aiming for 171 points at the start of the season and ended with 169, better luck next season I guess, I didn’t even get a prize for my best race which I lost out to 1st through the pole time by 0.5s.
