Recommended Posts

Hello and welcome to round two of 'Guess the Result'.

The idea: Guess which 8 drivers will finish in the points at the next Formula 1 Grand Prix.

The rules: You have from today, Monday March 30th until Thursday, April 2nd, 23:59 GMT to pick your top 8. All guesses made after the deadline will be discarded. Points are 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.

The standings after round one are:

  1. Mephistopheles - 9 points
  2. Shibby - 8 points
  3. Martyn - 7 points
  4. sundayx - 6 points
  5. HiroProtagonist1984 - 4 points
  6. Popcorned1 - 4 points
  7. mclaren2 - 4 points
  8. brentaal - 3 points
  9. Fourjays - 2 points
  10. .mcman - 1 point

My guess for the Malaysian GP:

  1. Jenson Button - Brawn Mercedes
  2. Rubens Barichello - Brawn Mercedes
  3. Kimi R?ikk?nen - Ferrari
  4. Robert Kubica - BMW-Sauber
  5. Sebastian Vettel - Red Bull-Renault
  6. Nico Rosberg - Williams-Toyota
  7. Timo Glock - Toyota
  8. Fernando Alonso - Renault

So will the points be changed when Brawn are excluded from the first two races? ;)

The problem'll be, that regardless of the decision, there'll probably be appeals, especially if the other teams aren't able to up their performance significantly by then.

I doubt Button is going to win again but it's hard not to put him up top.

My guess would be along the lines of

1: Button

2: Barrichello

3: Trulli

4: Kubica

5: Vettle

6: Massa

7: Raikkonen

8: Alonso

Based on the fact that Barrichello has to take a 5 place gearbox related drop, I am going to revise my estimate

1: Button

2: Trulli

3: Barrichello

4: Kubica

5: Vettle

6: Massa

7: Raikkonen

8: Alonso

Hold on, you can't do that, the deadline was Thursday 23:59.

Meh... Guess my original order stands then, but there should be some kind of contingency in place for grid penalties
