Singapore - F1 Prediction League (Round 13)

Singapore is a unique race on the calendar as F1's first night race, although it's status as the only night race in F1 is under threat. From 2014 Bahrain is set to host a night race too. The look and feel of Singapore makes this race a special one, at least in person, although the races themselves have not always been the most exciting.

Saying that the Singapore race has always had some fairly big implications for the championship e.g. Massa's pit problem in 2008 or Vettel's dominance (after Hamilton's retirement) last year setting up an impressive streak. 
With Vettel's dominance continuing this year, it would take a brave person to predict another driver winning this weekend outright. Should Vettel's dominance continue there is rumours that the FIA will ban players from picking Vettel to make races more entertaining. This legislation would certainly take a round or two to implement though.

To refresh your memories, here's a quick round-up of the standings so far:

Random Category for Singapore


Which two drivers will lose the most positions on the opening lap?

 

Fairly self-explanatory, which two drivers will lose the most positions from their grid position to the end of lap one. DNF's count as 0 if the driver does not complete a full lap.

I will use FORIX to work out the results (as well as attempting to catch the order myself on live f1 timing, to protect against any obvious mistakes with FORIX) e.g.


This category will be graded against other prediction league players, as follows:

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

If ties exist, the order of picking will be used to decide how many points are scored.

Post your picks in the following format -
Qualifying: 
Race:
Constructors:
Random: D1 - ; D2 - .

The deadline for Singapore picks is Friday 20th September 11:00 GMT (before FP1).

Good luck!
