GRIF 2015 F1 Prediction Game

Hi everybody! :wave:

Here are some simple rules, They are vertually unchanged from last year, just dropping the double points finale like in real life.
  • Predict the top 10 positions in the results of each grand prix and the answer to the bonus question.
  • No need to sign up, Just send me your top 10 (i.e. 1st - Hamilton, 2nd - Rosberg, 3rd - Ricciardo...) and your bonus answer. You can do so by either posting your prediction in this thread, or by sending a PM to me here if you want to keep it secret. :shhh:
  • Only 1 prediction can be made per round.
  • If you post more than 10 names, i will only take the top 10 in your list, and if you post less, you wont get so many points. I will also take them in the order you write them! You can not use the same name more than once.
  • Do not edit your post, edited posts will be ignored unless you make a mistake (only 9 names for instance) or a driver has pulled out and I inform you that you can make the change. It is your responsiblity, so if you notice a mistake you made, create a new post for the correction.
  • Predictions can be made at any time before the start of the 1st Practice session. However any late predictions made between the start of the 1st practice session and the start of Qualifying will recieve half points, rounded down to the nearest whole number!. Any predictions made after the start of Qualifying will be ignored.
  • You will get 4 points for getting a predicition spot on, 2 points if you are one position out, and 1 point if the driver you predicted finished within the top 10 so there is a maximum of 44 points available per race. I will post the results after each GP along with the running Tally for the championship.
  • The Bonus question is worth four points for a correct answer.
  • In the case of a tie in the championship standings, positions will be decided on the number of spot-on predictions, then by the number of spot-on first places, then 2nd and so on
It's pretty simple, any questions just ask.

One race down, and its a two way tie at the top with ACM and Ivaneurope getting 19 points, while last years champion SGroe has had an average start sitting in 6th.

A depleted field really affected scoring in positions 7 to 10 however. Only 1nsane failed to get a single spot on guess.

Round 2 - Malaysia
Practice Deadline: Friday 26th March, 02:00 GMT
Qualifying Deadline: Saturday 27th March, 09:00 GMT
Bonus: How many cars will finish the race?

Officially classified finishers counted. If any driver is subsitiuted this weekend I will change them automatically (e.g. ALO ~ MAG)
