Technical problems

Apologies to those of you who experienced difficulties submitting your predictions using the form last week. This was due to a problem with a small number of user accounts which caused by a software update which had to be applied at short notice. Those who sent in their predictions by email should see their entries were added.

The problem should now be fixed so if you were among those affected you should be able to add your prediction for the next round and all subsequent rounds via the usual page:

    1. Very race. So podium.

  1. I’m so sad.
    I guessed the Top 5 correctly, but in the wrong order :(

    1. Same! I guessed the top two correctly, but I put Alonso, Vettel and Ricardo all in the wrong positions. Gutted!

      1. I also had top 5 right – I put Rosberg, Hamilton, Vettel and Alonso in the wrong spot. Only Ricciardo is in the right spot.

        I had the feeling that Rosberg was better in practice so was betting on him. Guess I was wrong.

        1. @mike-dee

          We likely had exactly the same prediction then. Had my doubts Rosberg would do it, but have a championship bet on him so have to back my own bet to some extent ;) never would have put alonso in front of the red bulls though, should have known better.

  2. 44 perfect predictions, including me ^^.

    1. 44 perfect predictions for the #44 to dominate…….

  3. Yes! I’m up to #1310 now!

  4. well done to everyone! congrats!

    Keith, the form is still broken for me, any ideas for a possible solution? thanks

    1. +1 on the form not working.

    2. Same problem here. It mentions cookies aren’t enabled, but they apparently are. It also says I’m not logged in while my login info is displayed in the top right corner.

    3. @njoydesign @tim-m @rpneto @pault Sorry I should have repeated if anyone still has a problem please send details via here as usual:

      Reporting a technical problem

      1. Noted. It’s ok; my predictions are generally so off, I may as well fill all top 5 spots with Narain Karthikeyans! :)

      2. @keithcollantine
        Thanks Keith. Although it’s not the most convenient way of doing it, especially when you want to change prediction and don’t want to flood you with a myriad of these messages…

        This never happened before though, but now the problem persist no matter where I access the site from. PC, my smatrphone, all the same…

        1. Oh, wait. Just scrolled up and it seems to be fine!

  5. 5 points. It’s ogre.

    1. You know, I was cutting onions with a knife the other day. There must be someone you can pray to every night to improve your predictions?

  6. Yep F1 is getting predictable

  7. I call hacks!!! ;)

  8. And I thought I had pulled off the impossible getting 50, how wrong I was. No prize for me i guess :(

    1. I say that and then find out I’m top of the championship so hopefully I can continue scoring big.

  9. shows how predictable F1 has been this year. Let’s hope that’s gonna change soon.

  10. bummer, forgot to enter my predictions this week, would have got top two right at least! ;-)

  11. Wow!

    I don’t think I’ve scored a 20+ score in all my years here.

    And now this vaults me to P14 in the overall table. Fantastic.

    my best score this year, 7 XD and there was me thinking i’d do better this year

  13. I can only be disappointed that I got a mere 48 out of 50…

  14. If only Ricciardo had passed Alonso I too would have scored a perfect score *shakes fist*

  15. Yeah, I thank you very much! :) These are very cool prizes for me! :)
