Richard's F1 Tipping Competition

The Spanish Grand Prix was an interesting race – although perhaps not as thrilling as previous races this year – and the points’ spread in the Richard’s F1 Tipping Competition was again very close with most of us (understandably!) playing it safe with our predictions this weekend.

Those who submitted predictions for this round went with the form guide and predicted a Vettel/Webber pole and win combination, although most lost points by predicting a Vettel pole and a Webber win.

It was certainly for this reason that we had eight entrants achieve eight from a possible nine correct predictions – congratulations to collinh, DartsAddiction, DavidPJ, joseph.sheu, kesterjm, rockstar_aea, stretch6foot4 and our newest tipster, cuaza, for a healthy points haul.

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!

This weekend now sees joseph.sheu take a slender 1-point lead, with DartsAddiction and Julian::MUFC in equal-second.

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 (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.
