If Max had finished 2nd, I would have everyone from 1st down to 6th correct. Then if Alonso had actually finished at all, I'd have 9 of the top 10 spot on... :P

Monaco update

Image
SOURCE: https://gvacdn.akamaized.net/Assets/Ima ... 0TlL-2.jpg


Monaco a track known for it's glits, glamore and the wall of champions. Just ask max Versteppen (too soon?). A circuit that maybe the most mentally draining with the cars coming just millimeters away from the barriers at every part of the circuit.

It was clear from Thursday practice that Redbull was going to be a force to be reckon with. The dynamic duo of Riccardo and Versteppen were continuously lighting up the lap charts with sensational times on the new hyper-soft tires. As Mercedes and Ferrari were left scratching their heads searching for more pace. Inconsistency struck max Versteppen once again as another unforced error put him into the barriers at the end of fp3. The pressure was now on the redbull garage to get their man out in time for quali.

In qualifying all eyes were on The honey badger as he was on his quest for his Monaco redemption and the redbull garage frantically working to get versteppen out but alas it wasnt ment to be as a gear box issue prevented any further efforts for max. But on the other side of the garage Daniel Riccardo set a blazing new track record around the principality grabbing yet another pole here.

On race day it all appeared to be the Monaco norm, a uneventful procession with the honey badger leading the field. But little did we know gremlins would strike the mgu-k of Riccardo's RB14, Causing him to battle not only his competitors but his vehicle as well! Having now the challenge of managing the car down on power, down on engine braking, gear box issues and brake temp management. Riccardo now had his hands full with 2/3 of the race remaining. Against all odds Daniel Riccardo continued chugging along fending off his nearest challenger in sebastian Vettel to WIN his first Monaco grand prix. Great drive Riccardo, well deserved win.....

Will Canada bring Mercedes to the front?
Can Ferrari finally unleash all its ponies?
Should versteppen stop trying so hard?

STAY TUNED!

True, true. And I feel like 100 points is a very manageable gap this early in the season for this competition, so we'll see where we end up! :thumbup:

The fastest lap blunder worked beautifully for me though.

I think it's been updated or near to being updated. Unusually late this time!

We shall see if it worked out for you ;)

And I think the whole fastest lap blunder was what triggered the delay. I’m finishing it up now

Canada update

Image
Source https://d2d0b2rxqzh1q5.cloudfront.net/s ... d5a453.jpg

Canada home of Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve. A track known for its high speed, low down force and notorious for providing some of the most exciting races in recent years but would 2018 deliver the goods once again???

Heading into Canada all eyes were on the Ferrari and Renault powered cars as the Mercedes power unit upgrade had been delayed. With speculation that the engine might not be as reliable as the current unit. The power unit is delayed for further testing.

Heading into qualifying it was clear that Max Versteppen had a point to prove scoring a hat trick of fastest laps across all 3 practice sessions. Along with what appeared to be a solid race pace as well. But many were suspicious of the pace Ferrari had shown thus far seeming to not have made much gain from their new upgrade. Fortunately for them Vettel quickly showed us that he not only had more pace in reserve but that Ferrari had gotten a handle of their tire woes as Sebastian Vettel set a new track record taking pole in what was the closest qualifying session so far this year. It was a close one as 6 drivers were looking like they all had the potential to walk away with top honors on Saturday,

Many of us were excited at what appeared to be the much anticipated bout between 3 constructors we have all been waiting for in the turbo era. Sadly we were quite disappointed as the race proved to be the usual procession after turn 1. Even the newly added 3rd DRS zone could not add any excitement to the race which had so much promise on Saturday. Sebastian Vettel lead all the way followed by Bottas who has been quietly racking up points and Max Versteppen who really needed a clean race to silence his critics. (At least until next race)

Can Versteppen’s clean sweeps continue ??
Will the Mercedes upgrade bring a win???
Where will Riccardo decide to go????

STAY TUNED!!!

Only one team really benefited from the checkered flag mishap netting them a bonus of 20pts for correctly predicting all race events, giving them the round win and the Overall points lead. 8O

Congratulations to UltimoF1 aka Unlikeuday :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: for winning the Canada GP

Meeeeaaaaan while back on our leaderboard we have a new points leader as UltimoF1 makes out like a bandit 🤠 with the checkered flag mishap and grabbing his 2nd win of the season. The field is once again bunching up as only 27pts blankets the top 3 and 7pts separates the top 3 from the best of the rest. We also have pos 5-6 tied, pos 7-9 separated by 7pts, pos 10-16 separated by 14pts and pos 17-20 separated by 3pts. Very tight scoring all over the board.

This is also the 5th points leader in 7 rounds with Still plenty to play for as the season progresses. Notable mention to KimiforWDC for being the big mover this round climbing (+8) and Laz_T800 (+6) everyone else stayed pretty close to home.

French GP update

Image
Source http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/newpix/2018/ ... iver_L.JPG

The long awaited French Grand Prix finally returns to the F1 calendar. A circuit that leading up to the race was being doubted by many as a track that wouldn’t allow for much overtaking. Luckily for us those folks were wrong as the Paul Ricard circuit proved to be quite the viewing spectacle.

All weekend Lewis Hamilton was the man to chase as he topped all dry practice sessions heading into qualifying. The battle for pole was an all Mercedes affair as no one seemed to have enough for the new Mercedes engine. The fight was now on between teammates, Valtteri who was putting on quite the fight but it just wasn’t enough as Lewis squeezed out just a little more juice in the final sector to pip his teammate from pole.

The stage was now set with the mercs 1-2 front row lock out and the dark horse of Sebastian Vettel breathing down their neck waiting to strike on the alternate strategy of ultra soft tires to start the race. At lights out Vettel got away too fast for his own good causing an unforced error which destroyed his and Bottas race from then on. Lewis checkout out at the front and enjoyed a pleasant Sunday drive with Max Versteppen a distant 2nd. But to everyone’s surprise it was the prancing horse of the iceman Kimi Raikkonen whom was shaking and baking in the second stint to grab a well deserved 3rd place finish. Well done Kimi.

Can Vettel regain the championship lead?
Is leclerc the real deal???
When will Lady Luck shine on Bottas ???

Stay tuned!!!!

Now, In our race a unorthodox prediction which correctly placed both Ferrari’s in their respective order has netted the first win of the season for this unexpected challenger.

CONGRATULATIONS TO “HOW F1” aka dompclarke For winning the French GP :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Austria update

Image source: https://cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/ ... -tease.jpg

The Redbull ring, a circuit with just 10 turns, 3 drs zones and the most devasting curbs in the game. As simple as this layout may appear the elevation changes can catch even the most seasoned driver off guard. Would Redbull finally grab the bull by the horns in their home track?????

On Friday Mercedes’s stunned the field, as they unveiled a plethora of upgrades on their new spec b car. Would this be the much awaited dominance many have expected or just a bunch of flash? In practice the new car didn’t disappoint with Lewis Hamilton leading the field in both fp1 & 2. In fp3 Sebastian Vettel finally showed up at the top of the time sheets reminding us all that he was still very much in the fight. But during qualifying it was the flying Finn Valtteri Bottas whom snatched up pole for the 2nd year in a row and giving Mercedes yet another 1-2 lock out. Vettel qualified 3rd but after a 3 place grid drop penalty would be starting from 6th and Ferrari’s hope rested on the ice cold shoulders of Kimi Raikkonen.

At lights out Kimi got away to a brilliant start going 3 wide into turn one dead center of both mercs. A great display of driving by all 3 drivers with no contact made and with all cars attacking the corner. Bottas lost 1st dropping back to forth just behind Versteppen but quickly went back on the attack reclaiming 2nd just 2 turns later. Mercs were once again 1-2, Versteppen grabbing 3rd after some contact catching Kimi out and the iceman dropped to 4th after that promising start. But bad luck would strike Bottas yet again as a hydraulic failure ended his day. Then Mercedes once again dropped the strategy ball and didn’t pit their leading man Lewis during the vsc period while all their rivals did. Versteppen inherited the race lead with the Mercedes strategy blunder and never looked back. As the attrition rate continued to climb seeing Riccardo, Hulkenberg, Vandoorne, Hartley and very rare merc double dnf all fail to finish the race....

- Will Mercedes finally start pitting under the Vsc??
- Can haas deliver the good once again??
- When will Bottas catch a break???

STAY TUNED!!!!

Meeeeeaaaann while back on our leader board the top 5 remain unchanged as UltimoF1 continues their reign at the top but BanceriF1 has reeled in the current points leader and is only trailing by just 1 pt. A 20 pt gap now separates 2nd & 3rd. Project mayhem still leads the midfield in their pursuit of the big 3 and has extended their lead to kc grand pix.

PredictablyPoor & Bernie Sanders Racing continue to jostle for position as PredictablyPoor reclaims the # 6 spot. As this was a low scoring round not many moves were made across the board. Biggest mover this round was CrzyFast (+2)

Dang, nice scores! :lol:

I think 6th position is my highest of the year, so I'll take it. Still hunting that non-chaotic race where I can call it correctly and make up a load of points...

Actually your highest finish so far is 5th in monaco & you currently have two 6th place finishes to date thus far.....

These chaotic races make it impossible to determine the pecking order but if you happen to nail one of these races you will make some HUGE gains...,

Also, most of us scored just a few points apart which tells me we all pretty much had the same picks. Aj's win was simply due to him predicting kimi & alonso correctly. Which was more then any of us foresaw lol

The top 10 drivers I tipped in the race were the top 10 drivers in qualifying. I was confident I was on for an absolute haul of points.

Then... 9 points.

It’s definately a bummer for sure.

I just had a look at the global stats and someone scored 90 points that last round guessing 5/10 correct including the podium itself..... I should ask that guy for the lotto numbers

On the flip side, anyone who guesses a race like that correct is probably scoring duck eggs most of the time. 8)

While I do agree with that statement 100%, that person in particular averages about 18 pts a race . I tallied their points and they would have been 18th moving up to 5th on our leaderboard after that points haul.. just goes to show how easily momentum can change.

I'm feeling pretty good about this one. Not going to say too much before I find out how everyone else did, though! :D

- Silverstone update

Image
Source https://cdn.newsapi.com.au/image/v1/034 ... ?width=650



The British GP a physically demanding circuit unloading high G-forces through its notorious maggots, becketts & chapel sweeping s-complex. A track that has been dominated by Mercedes power for the last 5 years straight. With Lewis Hamilton the home town hero winning 4/5 races held here. Would it be the welcome home party Lewis expected or would the dark horse Sebastian Vettel rain on the Lewis parade.

Going into practice on Friday both Mercedes and Ferrari brought forth more upgrades in hopes of edging one another out of race winning contention. Fp1 went as expected with Lewis Hamilton on top of the time sheets but in Fp2 we saw Ferrari show uncharacteristically fast pace during a Friday session. First time this season in fact. Which had many wondering what exactly were Ferrari up too. In Fp3 it was Mercedes on top once again with Lewis as Sebastian Vettel was tending to sore neck.

In qualifying it was quite the spectacle as Lewis Hamilton was the first man to dip into the 1:25’s only to be pipped by Sebastian Vettel for provisional pole with an amazing lap on his first attempt in Q3. The two men being separated by less then a tenth of second. Hamilton thinking he had done enough, Vettel going for the jugular. On their final runs Hamilton some how found extra time in sector 2 being willed by the crowd and came across the line to reclaim pole position as Sebastian Vettel did not improve but hold on to you seats folks because Kimi Raikkonen YES that Kimi Raikkonen was on a flier and setting purple times across sectors 1 & 2 but it all came unglued in sector 3 for the iceman. With what could have been the biggest upset of the year.

On race day Hamilton was starting at the front with Vettel giving chase at lights out a costly poor start by Hamilton saw him drop down to 3rd with Vettel claiming the lead. To make matters worse Hamilton was spun out and would now have to limit the damage in his world championship hopes. At the front Vettel managed the lead well and it all looked like hopeless for merc but a safety car brought some excitement in later stages of the race putting Bottas in the lead while Vettel pitted for fresh rubber. The Mercedes call didn’t work out as Vettel too his time and made the move on Bottas to reclaim the lead and win the British gp.

NOW in our race their was only 1 man devilish enough to predict such a radical prediction. Which allowed him to claim the biggest points haul of the season thus far by correctly predicting 6/10 netting him 170 POINTS, in doing so has sky rocketed his team to the top of the board.

CONGRATULATIONS No Limit Exediron Racing aka Excedrin for winning the British GP. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Mmmmmeeeeeaaannn while back on our leader board for the 6Th time this season we have a new points leader. As No Limit Excedrin Racing (+14) dethrones UltimoF1 taking the crown. Ultimof1 & BancieriF1 continue to be just 1pt apart while top banana Racing gets bumped out of the top 3 with the rise of the new points leader. Congrats to Exedrin for ending your podium drought.

How quickly things change from race to race in this game never ceases to surprise me. NO POINTS LEAD IS SAFE.

Noteable mention to AJ Racing climbing (+7) & lax-t800 (+5)

Yes yes yes yes yes! Ta ta ta ta! Grazie Ragazzi. Whooooooooooo!

I knew a result like this was waiting out there somewhere and could get me back into contention! It's crazy how much a single great race can do for you - I went from ~750 in the USA to 22nd, and ~10,000 worldwide to ~500. I got three of these big bonus races last year, so here's hoping there's more to come!

For now... I'M BACK.

It's mostly just the Pick 10, honestly. I've been going through a rough spot in the Top Three, but I'm historically quite competitive there. Ever since I fought for the title with Covalent in 2016 and fell apart towards the end I've been totally awful at the Pick 10, however.

EDIT: And there's the Group Pick'em, at which I'm astonishingly terrible! :lol:

Meh, he didn't even correctly guess pole, fastest lap and positions gained - he only got one of the three right. What a bum!

...

Just kidding. That's pretty impressive stuff!

Wasn't me, either. I had Vettel down to win, and I would have done pretty decently if he hadn't crashed. x(

I don't suppose anyone is going to score all that highly though, what with the chaos in the midfield and two DNFs out of the drivers everyone is going to have in their top ten. I had 6 of the correct 10 in my picks, but none of them in exactly the right spot. I doubt much of anyone is going to be picking up points for Ericsson or Hartley.

I think I'm getting 21 whole points out of this weekend, if my math is on point.

I don’t even wanna do the math for mine lol. I also had Vettel for the win and that midfield shuffle was disastrous for me. (Leclerc & riccardo also tanked for me) not looking good at all.

Hello all,

Scores will be delayed as the site is still calculating the results. I would imagine due to the Hamilton controversy yesterday. Perhaps later tonight. From what I can see on my end there were some good scores for such a mix up of a race. With what looks like a 1st time winner at the moment

Hello all,
Not sure what’s going on with the predictor site it still hasn’t tallied the scores but I have taken the liberty of calculating the scores my self :smug:, so without further ado (drum roll)


German GP update

Image
Source https://www.dw.com/image/44779495_303.jpg

Hockenheim returns back to the F1 calendar home town favorite Sebastian Vettel leading the championship. Following the foot steps of his childhood hero in the prancing horse. Could Vettel finally win at home?????

Coming into the race Redbull looked strong in practice 1 & 2 along with Mercedes but as usual the unknown pace of the Ferrari was nothing shy of sandbagging as they didn’t show their true potential. In qualifying a surprising error by Hamilton saw his car lose hydraulic pressure forcing him to stop on track as he desperately tried to push his car back to pits. Gutted by his misfortune of being knocked out in Q1 he kneeled and said a prayer in hopes that he could have a better day on Sunday.

The rest of qualifying was nothing short of stellar, as a sensational lap from Sebastian Vettel set a new track record in front of his home crowd. Some pressure did come from Valtteri Bottas but ultimately he could not match the sector 1 time of Vettel which made all the difference for P1.

On race day it was an all Vettel affair as the home town favorite was in-front starting from pole, his nearest competitor in the standings starting 14th. Should be a pretty straight forward race right??? Well you couldn’t be more WRONG!! As late showers mid race turned this one into a drama that no one could have predicted.

Race leader Sebastian Vettel hydroplaned and crashed his Ferrari into the barriers all on his own. Lewis Hamilton who started from 14th driving like a man possessed all race now found himself inheriting the lead behind the safety car as Bottas and Raikkonen pitted for fresh rubber (I kid you not). Mercedes now with a 1-2 at the front instilled team orders to prevent any misfortune. Allowing Hamilton to bring it home for the upset win in germany,

Man those Hamilton prayers are quite powerful I must say because everything went right for him today with a ferocious drive through the field and Lady Luck on his side the man was unstoppable.

Can Ferrari be more covert with their team orders ???
Will vettel regain the wdc lead???
Can David Croft be silent for just 1 lap????

STAY TUNED!!!!
