[Formula 1] Guess the Result: Race 1: Australia


 Share

Recommended Posts

Let's see if we can get this going.

The idea: Guess the race result for each Grand Prix of the 2009 season before a car is on track.

The rules: You have from Monday before each race until Thursday, 23:59 GMT before each race to guess the top 8 finishers. All guesses made after the deadline will be discarded. Points will be awarded as follows:

  • Driver correctly guessed - 1 point
  • Driver and position correctly guessed - 3 points
  • All 8 drivers correctly guessed, order incorrect - 10 bonus points
  • All 8 drivers guessed in the correct order - 20 bonus points

You are free to modify your guess until the Thursday, 23:59 GMT deadline.

Results will be collected in a separate thread. At the end of the season the winner gets as many virtual hobnobs as he has points. :p

My guess for Australia:

  1. Jenson Button - Brawn Mercedes
  2. Kimi R?ikk?nen - Ferrari
  3. Felipe Massa - Ferrari
  4. Timo Glock - Toyota
  5. Fernando Alonso - Renault
  6. Mark Webber - Red Bull Renault
  7. Sebastian Vettel - Red Bull Renault
  8. Lewis Hamilton - McLaren Mercedes

  • Driver correctly guessed - 1 point
  • Driver and position correctly guessed - 2 points
  • All 8 drivers correctly guessed, order incorrect - 5 bonus points
  • All 8 drivers guessed in the correct order - 10 bonus points

I just think we need to change the point system (unintentional irony). More points are needed to reflect on the probability of getting the order correct.

  • Driver correctly guessed - 1 point
  • Driver and position correctly guessed - 3 points
  • All 8 drivers correctly guessed, order incorrect - 10 bonus points
  • All 8 drivers guessed in the correct order - 20 bonus points

Thanks for the suggestion. First post edited accordingly.

It's the first race of the season. Technical gremlins are likely to hit. And Mr Barichello has often been the driver to be hit by technical gremlins (think back to his time at Ferrari).

I didn't include either of the BMW Saubers in my top 8 for the same reason.

I think Brawn are going to dominate, probably scoring a 1-2. Honestly I wouldn't like to guess the rest of the order though, testing times have been all over the chart, but I feel, sadly, that McLaren are gonna be struggling in the back end of the points, and that is if they have a problem free weekend

No, 5 points. One more because of me making a typo in the results list. The point for Rosberg doesn't count since only the top 8 are counted - see first post.
