  1. 17 Points is the most I’ve ever had in a single round.

  2. Wow! In the top-10! :)

  3. With Perez in third, I knew that was going to be good, but good game to @Bradley13.

    Sorry to @Goldteef, because one thousanth of a second is nothing.

    @keithcollantine, I already have all the Pirelli tyres wristband and they scratch my skin when wearing them because of the compound. I’d like to give it as a present to Goldteef, who I don’t know, can I?

  4. Wow, having never scored more than about eleven points in a round of the predictions championship I’m quite stoked with that :D

    1. Congrats @bradley13! Fair Play.

  5. Hahaha! The one time I score more than 6 points and 13 others get the same amount of points! Better luck next time :)

  6. wow – 16th in the overall ranking is the highest I’ve ever been :)

    That just shot me up to a joint 30th in the standings!

    Finishing in the top 100 doesn’t sound as far-fetched as I originally thought.

    1. @fihar
      You’re sitting right above me in the standings XD

      I’m getting dizzy by the lofty heights of the Top 30, but the pressure is really on to keep a streak like this going!

  8. I think it’s VERY fitting that one of the most closely-fought races in recent times also had one of the most closely contested predictions results, too!

  9. Hey, I’m still in the top 15.35%! That sounds so much better than tied for #315 LOL

    look at aldo’s smug face

  11. jesus, i did horribly that race! everything was just the other way around for me!
    ham on pole
    ros with the win
    ham 2nd
    hul 3rd
    per 5th

    so, note for myself: next time, when you have a prediction, just switch the positions and you’ll be fine.

  12. Joint 7th – blimey! And with around five laps to go Hulkenberg was 4th and Vettel was 5th which would have got an even higher score, but it wasn’t to be.
