Five perfect results in Predictions Championship

F1 Fanatic Predictions Championship

Posted on

| Written by

Five different players scored a perfect 50 in this weekend’s round of the Predictions Championship – meaning the pole position time prediction had to be used to pick a winner.

This was especially difficult as Formula One was racing on a new track for the first time, but @PratikPanda took the top prize by predicting Lewis Hamilton’s pole position lap time to within three tenths of a second, and became the first player to win a copy of Codemasters’ F1 2014 which goes on sale later this week.

The second place prize went to Phillip Speer and third place to Neil. Commiserations to the other two who made perfect predictions but missed out on the prizes.

In the overall championship, @Brouard21 continues to lead but now holds a reduced seven-pointed margin over @Romain-from-Grenoble.

  1. Congratulations to all winners.

  2. congrats to all winners.
    @keithcollantine unless you’re now accepting “payments” for predictions, which may explain why I haven’t won a round, I think you might have a slight typo:
    “and became the first payer to win a copy of Codemasters’ F1 2014 which goes on sale later this week.”

  3. Ah, that’s frustrating :(

    I originally put Jenson fourth (albeit Alonso fifth), but I got too scared that thinking McLaren would do well was naive and optimistic!

  4. So close. I thought I would win it with all but Bottas correct. Even pole time within a tenth. But five perfect predictions, great job guys!

  5. True to form i got my usual result – picked 4 out of 5 correct drivers, none in the right position.

  6. Well done guys! Can’t compete with that. Had high hopes for my 4 out of 5 (plus Alonso) until I saw the results – damn that Ferrari jack.

    Well done to the winners – I was waaaay off.

    @KeithCollantine, any chance of ‘helping’ the guys who who do the forecast totally in the dark (i.e. before FP1). We have no indication of the ‘form sheet’ and have to take an educated guess at the best quali time. Maybe, when there is a tie ‘first come-first serve’? (although I do like the guessing of the Quali time as well)

  8. Thanks Keith, and congrats to the others!
