  1. Can we see the full final standings?

    1. @t3x Apologies, the link wasn’t displaying. It’s there now.

      1. Please check your emails re: prizes for Japan 2013 and 2016. Have not received a response from you. @keithcollantine

  2. awww I was in the top 12 for the majority of the season.. ended up 18th. :(

    anyways, thanks and well done @keithcollantine the Predictions Championship; it made this F1 season even more exciting.. looking forward for 2017 !

    1. Me too, I was in the top 12 nearly all year however I could not watch practice 3 for the last 4 rounds so I had to kinda guess after practice 2.

      Congratulations to the winner !

    2. I hear you. Was up to 2nd at one point but dropped to 24th at the end. If only I had put in picks for Monaco.

      Congratulations to the winners. I shall try again next year.

  3. Congratulations to all the winners and specially @SBFIM29 for the first place.

  4. Thanks everybody for an entertaining season. Glory to the winners, honour to the losers.
    Thankfully I employed the correct strategy at the last two races so I managed to avoid receiving a prize. I mean – my room is already cramped with stuff and I couldn’t possibly accommodate anything extra.

  5. Congrats to everyone who entered.

    I finished far off the field, but when they both lapped me over and over I saw @rpneto trying to back @sbfim29 up into fourth place.

    1. Thanks to this competition, those last races were extra fun to watch, because While I was cheering for Lewis, I was also trying to get close to @SBFIM29. It was incredible to see how we both score the same amount of points in many of the closing stages even having different bets.

      Thanks @keithcollantine for keeping this great blog.

      1. This prediction championship was kinda intense for me. I was quite strong in the first half of the championship. But @rpneto was closing in on me during the second half of the season. I would’ve not been on top if it weren’t for the Mexico race.

        Thank you for the great fight everyone.

  6. Congrats @SBFIM29

    Though I think @rpnet deserved it more ;)

    1. My computer and this blog were working flawlessly all the season, so I cannot blame anybody or anything ;-).

      Congratulations @SBFIM29!

  7. Joint 298th, so-so I suppose. I think other people must be getting better because my scores are pretty reasonable!

  8. 87th after having been top 30, trying to throw in some odd results didn’t work as usual. Enjoy your prizes.

  9. I wonder …. now that the season has finished and things have quietened down if I can somehow contact Keith. I no longer have access to my e-mail that I used to use here. I have tried several times to change it but with no success. Have you checked your system to see if it does work Keith?

  10. Congrats to the winners.

  11. Thanks Keith. You’re doing a great job. Will not be easy to wait for next season.
    Also, congratulations to all the winners, and better luck next year to all others.

  12. Some pointless but interesting statistics:
    – The most unpredictable race for us was Baku, with an average score of just 4.4 and a maximum score of 19. I guess not many of us expected to see Pérez in the podium. Paradoxically, we also regarded it as one of the worst races in recent years (www.f1fanatic.co.uk/rate-the-race/f1-fanatic-bottom-10).
    – The most predictable race was, unsurprisingly, the last one, Abu Dhabi, with an average score of 17.1 and 21 perfect scores. Mexico had more perfect scores, though: 30.
    – The average score of all the predictions was 9.7.
    – The average score of the winner (congratulations!) was 15.9.
    – There was a surprisingly steady decline in the number of predictions throughout the season, from a high of 1066 in Australia to a low of 504 in Abu Dhabi. I wonder what that means.

    Note: These statistics assume that a score of 0 means no prediction. This is certainly correct in most cases, but there must be a few cases where it actually means a prediction which scored 0 points. That means that these numbers aren’t 100% accurate, but the inaccuracy is probably minimal.

  13. Congrats to the winners. Second time I’ve finished (tied for) one place out of the prizes!

  14. Hi, cant see the full list. Is it still up?
