F1 Fanatic Predictions Championship

| Written by

Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg, Daniel Ricciardo, Monaco, 2014A trio of players entered perfect predictions for last weekend’s Monaco Grand Prix round, each netting a maximum haul of 50 points.

The latest high-scoring round of the Predictions Championship was won by @Tomakko, who came closest to predicting the pole position time correctly out of our three high scorers.

A poor round for @Brouard21 meant they lost the lead in the points standings to @Djqz, who netted a healthy haul of 31.

After four wins on the trot it was no surprise to see Lewis Hamilton was the favourite for victory and pole position. But this week Nico Rosberg proved the Mercedes driver to back.

    1. 31 points – my best result ever :)

      1. Congrats @andae23! This season seems to be rewarding the regular site commenters for some reason!

        1. @vettel1 Let’s hope the trend continues then! ;)

    2. 21 points is a pretty good haul for me. But irritatingly my prediction exactly matched the top 5 on the grid.

      1. Same here @vettel1 It was a pretty straight-forward prediction, but i guess we didn’t take into account Vettel’s recent bad luck. Interestingly it was again Hulkenberg who took #5. I barely noticed him all weekend.

      2. For me too, well the qualifying was more predictable than the race I guess.

      incredible that i’m already 110 points behind the leader in the table XD this is why i dont place bets lol

    4. Had the grid remained the same after the race, I would have won. Especially this being Monaco, where overtaking is difficult, I had high hopes. My pole position prediction was 1:16.000. Anyway first time scoring more than 20 points. Cheers.

      I’m…. I’m 16th! I knew my gamble on Rosberg is going to pay off handsomely, but hot damn!

      I hope my wings won’t melt for flying this close to the sun. Sure beats hanging around the 300th position on the standings though.

    6. A disappointing seven points here, and I’m another who’s prediction matched the starting grid with the exception of the Mercs! Still stoked to be joint 37th overall however! XD

    7. I got pretty near to perfectly predicting a surprising result. I just had the wrong Red Bull retiring and didn’t think Kimi would be that unlucky. All I needed was those and the Red Bull managing to get past Hamilton for second and it would’ve worked.

      (If I recall my prediction correctly)

    8. I predicted the pole to be 01:15.974 while the real pole was 01:15:989. Looking at my point tally of 11 I don’t think I got any extra points for that. Ignoring that one I seem to be pretty awful at this, personal best of only 13 points.

    9. My bad, I just missed to get my prediction in time. That’s what happens when you want to do it after FP3 and then you forget to make it.

      0 point: Caterham material.

    10. I hate Rosberg, he totally screewd my predictions with his dodgy moves in qualy. A mere 7 points… Hope he has a DNF next time in Canada… but then again putting him in 2nd place is such a safe bet :)

    11. I wavered over picking Nico for the win & pole and in the end went for Lewis. D’oh. Still, slowly but surely moving my way up the standings. Only 159 places to go before I’m first on the leaderboard.

    12. 5 points, ouch. Thought I’d mix it up with something other than a Mercedes 1-2. I’ll go back to predicting Lewis 1 and Nico 2 for the next race, mostly working for me so far.

    13. Just caught up on some reading here on f1fanatic and than this.
      What a pleasant surprise!
      Big thanks to Derek Warwick and the other two race stewards…
