2012 Prediction Competition.

2012 Prediction Competition.
OK, who's in for this year?

You are predicting for each race:-

Pole Position = 3 points.
Podium = Driver on the podium =1 point
Driver in correct place on the podium = 3 points.
All three podium places correct = additional 6 bonus points.
Fastest Lap = 3 points.
10th Place = 3 points.

There will be a prize this year. What it is, I don't know.

The picks need to be sent by PM, e-mail or carrier pigeon to me before start of Friday practice (or Thursday in the case of Monaco). Please do not put them in order of 1,2,3, 10th, Fastest Lap and pole as mixing them up increases the chance of me making errors transcribing your often unintelligible messages filled with hopeless wishes regarding your favourite driver.

If you fail to get fresh picks in by the deadline, the last races picks will be rolled over.

Results are tracked on a spreadsheet. As I do this, make the rules and take part, it is customary to accuse me of cheating at every opportunity.

Reminder of last years results.

I got my picks in yesterday on the understanding that doing so counts double.

Never, in the field of human conflict, has so much been misunderstood, by so few.

Sounds like I should get some extra 0's

Is it too late to get a mention of the competition on the podcast?

It might also be time to revive the forum updates, even if we only do them after race weekends when there is a predictions competition update to include.

RE: 2012 Prediction Competition.
Your entries for Australia. Given it's the first race and raining, I'll take entries up to Quali. Entries after then will be accepted if they are attached to a fresh, untraceable $100 note.

I find it amusing that you use an image of the most forgetful person on this forum for reminding people about the prediction competition. I am denying myself entry into the competition this year as I have never consistently made my picks in a timely manner...doh!

It's called irony.

This is not permissible. If you don't make an entry, we will for you.
