    1. surely three races left to run. unless we aren’t doing predictions for abu dhabi?

      1. Yes that’s right, sorry!

    2. I’m in 5th, its not normally something to be happy about after the flat spot I hit during predictions but its looking alright for the championship.

    3. Only 288 people still have chances to win this.
      But anyways, it’s gonna be extremely close.

    4. Hey, I also cut points from the leaders’ advantage. You forgot to mention me, I got 10 points :lol:

      Beware on the top, I am coming :P

    5. Go Lewis! Good to be in the top 5 but I’m aiming for the number 1 spot…

    6. Predictisions in this year are very hard. Last year i had second place on predictision in Poland but this year much worse becase many things changed bettwen 2008 and 2009

    7. Yey first points on first time :)
      I want this season over just so I can start from the beginning :P
      Have to say a nice fight developing at the top, good luck everyone.
      Can we have a prediction on who is going to win the predictions championship ;)

    8. Hey I’m only in 289th place with 3 races to go! I think I can still win this thing!

    9. My first none scoring round, that will teach me to make my predictions when I am in rush.

      Although I am joint 9th I think I am like Barrichello, still mathematically in with a chance but realistically not much chance of winning.

      1. Correctly identify the top 3 (and add Pole if you want) in any of the last 3 races and you will take top spot immediately. That’s how close this thing is…

        …this one is going down to the wire!!

        It means absolutely nothing that I’ve been at the top most of the year, what counts is who is at the top after Abu Dhabi!! and as SaloolaS says, that can be any one of 288 peeps!

        This is a great fantasy game, easy to enter, and it’s a close run thing to the end.

        1. I agree loads of people can still win it but I don’t think I will because my predictions for the last few races haven’t been that good, plus I am a pessimist.

    10. My first DNF!! In this game you really can’t afford to have DNFs… must try harder!

      1. What did you predict? I got 5 points for Hamilton on 2nd…

        1. I was banking on another Brawn one-two, but had Webber on Pole/3rd as he was looking well fast and consistent up to his crash. Reckon he would have had third as well (10pts) but for that penalty… still think it was harsh and unnecessary :-)

    11. lol don’t worry Dougie, still few races left! I’m no where near top but can’t wait to see who wins this after having watched it for half the season. In championship terms this is more entertaining than the real thing, for me but then again I am anti-Button :P

      1. steph, you still have the chances for being 3rd or 4th, which still means a prize :)

    12. I’ve only done this twice and I’m joint 397th, lol.

      Can anyone tell me how the scores are allocated? Thanks.

    13. Aww really I thought I was completly out of it! Thanks SaloolaS, unlikely I’ll get there but I’ll give it a good try :) Wish I’d found this site earlier

    14. sweet! i got the highest score for this round (apart from a couple of newbies) :D

      And is that the real Keith Collantine that I’m currently level on points with? Now that’s not too bad…

    15. If only the actual F1 championship were like this.

    16. I have moved from joint 10th to joint 15th….courtesy singapore gp with 0 points…..its the second time i am not troubling the scorer……:(

      1. But i am still beating u keith…hahahaha..

    17. 125 points total for me!…not too shabby eh?

      If I don’t win this thing I am pulling for you Sush…your my Seb Vettel,just close enough to make the leaders nervous!

    18. My championship is over

    19. lol at all the 0’s

    20. Keith, can I still enter this even at this late stage? If yes, how?

      1. @ paricy

        It’s simple….just before the race weekend Keith will post “make your predictions” and you select:pole position,1st place,2nd place and 3rd place.No entry form to fill out,everyone is welcome to predict.

        Good luck!

        1. thanks Wesley
