Hi guys,

I was thinking, we have a lot of prediction competitions going on for race results, but not so much for qualifying. I realise the top 4-6 are far more static on Saturday than Sunday, but at the same time the midfield and back end of the pack can put in a lot of surprises over one lap that they can't manage in the race.

I was thinking of a points system that matches Pick 10 - so get your prediction within 9 places, your prediction scores. The main difference being that all 20 grid slots are part of the competition. Entries would be expected before the start of FP2 each weekend, allowing basically a shakedown FP1 session as the only benchmark by which to judge. That should keep a balance between insight and instinct among predictions.

I was hoping to start this from the Belgian Grand Prix, so we'd have a 9 race championship this year and shake out the bugs for 2019.

Thoughts?

That would certainly simplify the lower half of the field for points - say, 10 points for each right answer in Q1/2 and then the 25-18-15-12-10-8-6-4-2-1 for Q3.
