A surprise winner in Canada meant it was a rather low-scoring round of the RichardsF1.com F1 Predictions Championship.

It wasn’t a surprise that no one took a gamble on Daniel Ricciardo claiming a shock – but ultimately well-deserved – maiden Grand Prix victory, but what was a surprise was how few of our entrants predicted someone other than Lewis Hamilton would claim pole position.

A solid nine-point claim kept alpha in a slender lead at the top of the points table, three clear of Lokisword. You can check out the complete points standings by clicking here.

Predictions for this weekend’s Austrian Grand Prix will open on Thursday.
