Richard's F1 Tipping Competition

Well, how exciting was the Chinese Grand Prix! I think it’s fairly safe to assume that this has been the best race of 2011 – if not even longer – and let’s hope the run continues.

The Richard’s F1 Tipping Competition gave our entrants another array of scenarios to pick from, but it seems that while most were correctly able to predict another Sebastian Vettel pole, not one of us backed Lewis Hamilton to take a brilliant race win.

Our tipster Jenifermarie headed this week’s leaderboard with an impressive 8-point sweep, correctly predicting Vettel’s pole position, McLaren and Red Bull being the first two teams, and also the top-five finishers. But for half a lap – the time when Webber overtook Massa for fifth and before Hamilton swept by Vettel to take the lead – she was on-course for a complete sweep of correct predictions!

Prizes are still on offer for the first tipster to collect a clean sweep of results!

The result sees Jenifer join our other three points’ leaders – 321bosscat, joseph.sheu, and Julian::MUFC – at the top of the table on 21 points. Just three points covers the top ten-ranked tipsters.

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.
