Last weekend’s Monaco Grand Prix produced a number of surprise results, and this was reflected in a rather low-scoring round for our RichardsF1.com F1 Predictions Competition entrants.
While the top-three qualifiers finished as they started – that’s been something of a common theme this season – the grid order itself was the subject of controversy, with Nico Rosberg’s pole-winning effort uphelded after a controversial qualifying session on Saturday.
Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton ultimately had no answers and had to consign himself to second place on Sunday, as well as relinquishing the Drivers’ Championship lead to Rosberg.
Most of entrants predicted a fifth race win on the trot for Hamilton, while a number also predicted good results for Sebastian Vettel and Sergio Pérez, who both retired within the first half-dozen laps of the race.
The final results – coupled with a number of contenders electing to use one of their two ‘double up’ features available to them – created a rather jumbled leaderboard. Our Tanzanian tipster Alpha kept his lead despite a very low-scoring round, although his cause was helped by less than flattering scores for his nearest rivals, Lokisword and julianz, who both closed to within 4 points of the lead, continuing to share second place in the standings.
