Ungary.

So I put the top 6 names into a random generator & it selected the podium winners as

1. Ric
2. Vet
3. Rai.

But i've decided to ignore the wisdom of the all powerful, all knowing internet & instead i'm going

1. Vettel
2. Verstappen
3. Ricciardo

So they're ya go. Get your hard earned on Ricciardo to win. He's a cert.

Hmm, nobody at all picking Hamilton to win? Are we really that bold after Hockenheim? :uhoh:

Probably best if I avoid coming into contact with people for a good 5 or so hours after seeing the qualifying results x(

You'd have won the round with this, BTW. :lol:

Update coming later tonight (tomorrow morning, for you Euro types). Spoiler alert, but nobody did very well...

HUNGARIAN GRAND PRIX RESULTS

With Ferrari looking on strong form lately, and Mercedes having a well-established history of struggling at the Hungaroring in the turbo-hybrid era, confidence was high that it would be a red car atop the podium come Sunday, with a slight chance of a Red Bull stealing the show and claiming victory at a track that should suit them as well as any. In fact, confidence was so high that not a single person picked a Mercedes to win.

That's why nobody scored five points or higher. Hamilton took pole in a rain-soaked qualifying session, with both Ferraris failing to capitalize on their pace to reach the front row. In the race it was more of the same: Ferrari threw away a possible win with a poor pit stop when they couldn't afford anything to go wrong, and Vettel came home in second with Raikkonen behind.

Since nobody foresaw a Hamilton win, the victory in our own little competition was determined by who had Vettel down for second. Congratulations, therefore, to Bentrovato and Lotus49! They say it's better to be lucky than to be good, and since nobody was good this round it counted for double. :thumbup:

(Spare a thought for CarlPotter and Jezza13, both of whom almost predicted something that would have given them the win but backed out)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First Place - 3 points
Bentrovato, Lotus49

Second Place - 1 point
Remmirath, Black_Flag_11, CarlPotter

Third Place - 0 points
Everyone else

Individual Standings - Round Twelve

Image

Amazingly, despite Mod Titanium not having scored since France, there is still no change at the top. The winners of this round not only weren't highly enough placed to threaten the leader, they also didn't get very much for their victorious efforts. Bentrovato and Lotus49 each move forward two places as a result of their victories, ending up in 12th and 18th places, respectively.

CarlPotter, Black_Flag_11 and Remmirath all scored a point but did not change their position (although in the case of CarlPotter, he would have lost a position if he had not scored).

Team Standings - Round Twelve

Image

It's a much-needed win for Lotus-CC Racing, although true to their luck this season that win does come at the lowest-scoring round yet (the winner also received only three points for China, but in that case some teams scored with both drivers). The last-placed team of 2018 gains slightly on the pack ahead, but fails to improve their position; ahead of them, Drive Sauber also inches forward with a single point this round.

The only actual change of place this round occurs higher up the table, with The Also Rans sliding past Crisis in Management on the strength of their double scoring - it may have only been one point each, but it was still the only double score of the round.

CHAMPIONSHIP PICTURE

Shockingly stagnant heading into the summer break.

Okay, that does it for Hungary! It's almost a month until the F1 season resumes at Spa, so we have some time to sit and think about how it's all gone so horribly wrong.

I'll be putting together a sort of mid-season report some time in the coming weeks, comparing scoring and form this year to previous seasons. I can already tell you that this is the lowest scoring season since I've been curating the competition: nothing seems to go as expected, and as a result nobody has been able to put a sizable lead together.

While that's frustrating for the people who feel like they've been getting it right and getting no points in return, it does mean that the competition is wide open heading into the second half! :thumbup: :]
