Nurburgring - F1 Prediction League (Round 9)

This is the first Nurburgring race since 2011, which was a cracking race fought between Hamilton, Webber and Alonso. There have been some issues recently with the track going into liquidation so hopefully this race is a success.

The Mercedes have been getting stronger of late but Red Bull still ultimately have the best car. Can either of these two teams capitalise or will the Lotus and Ferrari's bounce back after a disappointing performance, if not result, at Silverstone?

In the actual prediction league, positions 2-5 are separated by only one point so this is going to be very interesting weekend.

Also well done to Jasper94, Ediglo and Kiszol for podium finishes last weekend.

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

Random Category for Nurburgring


Which driver will have the slowest combined Q1, Q2 and Q3 time?

 

The concept is pretty simple. Drivers will be split into three categories: drivers who make Q3, drivers who only make Q2 and drivers who go out in Q1. Therefore any driver who makes Q3 will automatically beat someone who only makes Q2. Points will be allocated based on the following:

1st - 3 points
2nd and 3rd - 2 points
4th, 5th and 6th - 1 point

Picks are due by Thursday 4th July 23:59 GMT.#

 
Good luck all!

  9. I had a look at the F1 prediction page at the top. Are we going to do a mid-season category like in past seasons?? I would like that. I could try to catch others.

    1. Hi, thanks for your comment MetalGatherer. I'd like to run something like this but it depends on what everyone else thinks. I'll run a poll between now and Hungary and the option which has the most votes will win.

      A mid-season category has always worked out very well so I see no real downsides to having one.

    1. Good luck! Unlucky for last weekend, it's unlikely Vettel will suffer the same misfortune this week.
