China - F1 Prediction League (Round 3)

Round 3 of 19 is upon us. After a three week break the teams will be raring to go. Who knows, there may be a surprise or two in store. All the top teams are bullish about their prospects so this weekend could be crucial one in the F1 prediction league as any could win.

Will Rosberg continue his scintillating form and win? Or will it be Alonso and Vettel fighting it out for the top step again?

Just a quick round-up of the standings so far:





For a further look at a newer, easy access place for the F1 prediction league look at the top toolbar on the site: http://formulaoneanalysis.blogspot.co.uk/p/blog-page.html

This has links to all of the picking and results threads, rules and some key statistics (some of it in development).
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Random Category for China


Which driver will make the biggest improvement between P1 and the race?


This random is purely based on positions. So who will finish in the highest relative position compared to their practice 1 position?

If Sutil finishes 6th in P1 and 5th in the race, he will score 1 point. The best possible position is your driver finishing 22nd in P1 and 1st in the race and vice versa for the worst possible result.

Like in the last random category, points will be scored in the following manner:



If two drivers are tied the higher race finishing position will be favoured.

As before post your picks in the following format -

Qualifying: 
Race:
Constructors:
Random:

The deadline for picks is Thursday 11th April 23:59 GMT.

  6. sanganthebrave, maybe I should change my nickname to Grosjean since I just
    score 2 points for the team and you score 20 XD.I hope this weekend we score
    some serious points and put Lotus a little bit closer to the top of the table.

    Anyway it should stay dry in the China all weekend so I think Lotus will be up there fighting for the win.Low temperatures and probably huge tyre
    degradation could help them too.But with so many competitive teams
    it is like playing a lottery, very hard to predict anything.

    Qualifying: Vettel
    Race: Kimi
    Constructors: Lotus
    Random: Hulkenberg

  7. No worries my friend. We'll both get there! I think your Kimi pick might be a good one, expecting Vettel, Alonso and Raikkonen to be on the podium (not sure which order tbh).

    I'm going to have a hard think about my picks tonight, I'm confident about random but the other three categories have a lot of possibilities!
