Hungary - F1 Prediction League (Round 10)

So we're back after a long 3 week break. There are far too many of those this season so well done to everyone for making it through! Of course this is due to the absence of New Jersey from the calendar which prompted a re-schedule. The German GP was originally scheduled for last weekend. 

Will the Young Driver test have a significant influence on proceedings here? Are we set for another Lotus vs. Red Bull race here at the Hungaroring like in Germany? Obviously Lotus have previous good form here, after chasing Lewis Hamilton for most of the race last year.

In the actual prediction league, Kim and Rajaram are making further ground on the lead and positions 4-9 are separated by only 7 points. The season is definitely ebbing and flowing, which is nice to see.

Well done to Kim, Dragan and Dead Jedi for podium finishes in Germany.

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

    1. Hi ediglo, I'll definitely update the stats after Hungary. Sorry I haven't done it recently, I've had some professional qualification exams so things have been really hectic.

      I'll aim to get the updated stats out by the end of the weekend :)

  13. Couldn't take part, cause I left to see the GP live on Wednesday and the thread wasn't up yet. Dang.

    1. Sorry Wander, entirely my fault. I'll aim to get the thread up by Tuesday at the latest from now on and maybe a bit earlier.

      I had professional qualification exams on Monday and Tuesday and only remembered very early Wednesday morning.

      There's plenty of opportunities going forward still, there's a £30 amazon voucher for the top scorer in the second half of the season for one.
