2013 Prediction Competition.

2013 Prediction Competition.
OK Boys and Girls, practice is over, the season starts in two weeks so it's time to start making wild ass guesses informed predictions.

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.

The picks need to be sent by PM to me before start of Friday practice (or Thursday in the case of Monaco).

As usual, I fully expect you to make life difficult for me by sending them with three seconds to spare or mixing up the order or using pet nicknames and codes. I will therefore thank you in advance for making my life difficult. (See Note 1)

If you fail to get fresh picks in by the deadline, the last races picks will be rolled over. (Note 1: If you've really pissed me off I may change all your pics to Marussia drivers).

Results are tracked on a spreadsheet supplied by the F1Weekly spreadsheet department (Chemics). As I do all the entries, post the results, make the rules and Chemics does the calculations, it is customary to accuse both of us of cheating at every opportunity.

Expect random, badly constructed photoshop images from time to time to remind you for your entries.

RE: 2013 Prediction Competition.
My weather app is predicting heavy rain showers on Saturday from 11am until late afternoon in Melbourne.

Like we need more unpredictability.

That can be the best tactic of the season, some of the biggest scores have come from missing the deadline.

What they've said. We got the potential for a screwy start to the 2013 F1WFPC(F1Weekly Forum Prediction Championship) in store for us this weekend.

hey, if you're going to pretend I made dumb picks, why not go all the way and pick retired drivers? or dead ones?
