    1. Congrats @Brouard21 !
      Great predicting what seemed at times to be a very unpredictable year !

      Cheers !

    2. 210th – 185 pts.
      6, 11, 29, 24, 19, 0, 4, 7, 5, 0, 3, 5, 7, 6, 9, 21, 11, 9, 9.

    3. @Brouard21 Congratulations! You get that ultra-awesome brake-disc clock! I hope that particular prize stays for a while so I can have a hope of getting my hands on it!

    4. 233rd. Err, could have gone worse I guess…

      Big congrats to everyone who won something this year :)

    5. 222nd with 183 points. i’m happy with that. target for next year is top 100.

    6. 7th with 262 points. My best result. Without disqualification Red Bull cars in Abu Dhabi would be a lot better.

    7. Ended up not being too bad for me, =414th with 152 points.

    8. That’s a fine looking clock. Hope it doesn’t keep stopping.
      Well played everyone who’s won something this year, and thanks again for running it.

      1. Haha, very good :)

    9. 86th with 209 points, not bad I think for the first season, which was quite predictable for at least the first two places.

    10. Congrats everyone for playing, another great year of predicting the future!
      I finished 3rd, and kind of regret my predictions for the last 3 GPs where I under-estimated the Williams. Should have done better.

      Keith, will you get hold of 2 Silverstone tickets as next year first prize? That certainly was a great prize you had the previous years. Although if it were for Monza or Monaco, it would be closer for me. Anyway, I think any ticket for Barcelona, Spa or the German GP would be popular with your audience.


    11. 26th with 236 points. Missed 3 races but I don’t think it would have made much difference since it was for Australia Germany and Belgium. Those 3 races were kind of unpredictable. Aiming for a top 5 next year. Well done to brouard21 and the same to those who just missed out :)

    12. Congrats to the winner, beautiful little clock you’ll be getting.

      72nd… not bad, and won a little prize along the way in Russia. Hopefully it’ll arrive soon!

    13. Well done all you winners. One day but not yet, not yet

    14. The year started well but after 4 races my race engineers started choking and me tanking :) – see you next year maybe with a tad more luck.

    15. Tied 49th place with a best score of 31 and total score off 220 :) might be my best year yet!

    16. 14th this year – woohoo!

      What a difference it makes when your favourite driver retires and you don’t keep picking him for pole and win every week :)

      1. I realized that I used too much time and got too annoyed over this prediction competition, because of the “need” to evaluate 3. practise before making my prediction. So early this year I dropped the competition totally – I’ve had a much more enjoyable F1 year after that. Both because I didn’t stress myself over the prediction and because I watched the races without any bias towards my prediction. So I realised that I enjoy F1 more when I don’t “gamble” on the results. But congrats to all winners, I hope You get your prizes soon.
