Richard's F1 Tipping Competition

Well, the Australian Grand Prix is over and the bragging rights can now begin for this year’s edition of the Richard’s F1 Tipping Competition, where four of our tipsters are tied at the top of the table with an eight-point haul.

Special mention to one of our very brave tipsters (redvenom) who predicted a maiden win for Vitaly Petrov – while not quite correct, a podium finish for the Russian was an excellent effort!

Unfortunately my predictions of a solid Mercedes GP result went belly-up courtesy of torpedo driving from Jaime Alguersuari (on Schumacher) and Rubens Barrichello (on Rosberg), the latter being a truly laughable attempt at a passing manoeuvre.

Read on to view the full leaderboard (which also shows the predictions each tipster submitted), which will be updated after each Grand Prix…

* Tipsters who fail to submit their race-by-race tips are awarded the lowest points-score of the round. Late starters are awarded a starting amount of the average of all points scorers’ results, less five points. Late starters are also ineligible to submit predictions in the pre-season bonus points round to predict the Drivers’ and Constructors’ champion.
A five-point bonus is awarded to any tipster who correctly predicts all categories.
