Richard's F1 Tipping Competition

A very exciting British Grand Prix will soon become part of the archives of Formula 1 history, and it was thrilling to see Fernando Alonso claim his – and Ferrari’s – first race win last year’s Korean Grand Prix.

Perhaps it was the weather or the soon-to-be-cancelled revised exhaust regulations that made the competition at the front closer, but some slip-ups threw quite a few of our front-running contestants off kilter…

A five-point bonus is given to anyone who gets a perfect round, and prizes are still on offer for the first tipster to collect a clean sweep of results!

Two tipsters – cuaza and StuWGC – finished the round on top with eight correct predictions. Only three contestants tipped Mark Webber for pole position, but none of us had any faith in Ferrari staging a win (although one brave soul predicted an Adrian Sutil maiden win!).

At the end of Round 9, joseph.sheu has eased into a one-point lead from the chasing trio of handstand, Jenifermarie and Julian::MUFC.

Please note that OzTips is reconfiguring its platform and all entrants will need to register a Yahoo!ID to continue accessing the service.

* 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 (added to the round after they join). 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.
