Now the winner of the first MUMM bottle, for best average score (taken from top 12 scores). The points next to names represent the sum of best 12 scores of each player who took part in 12 or more rounds – It is Ozzi again:

    Congrats everyone who won!

    This was great fun the whole year and I will be back next year and for sure won’t miss the one race I did.

    F1Wolf you put on a great game.

  2. zblkhwkNo Gravatar says:

    Congrats to Robo! Well done!

    And also to Ozzi for a great finish!

    Thanks for another awesome year Wolf. I look forward to some colorful commentary this off season with all the changes that will take place before next year. And I will take my Podium finish, much better than last year, and look forward to another good finish next year.

    What a season. Congratulations to Mr. Robertson for winning the prediction game. Next year I will be visiting my local bet shop with your predictions.

  4. F1WolfNo Gravatar says:

    well, but what happened to Fantoci and Fatfish, the stars of 2007 season :-) yes they missed some rounds but look also at the averages :-)

    you must do better next year !

    great fun guys, thank you all for joining the little game ! Congrats to Steve Robertson, Ozzi and also Draconte who won the second stage.

    I am already thinking about 2009 season game having one or 2 little tweaks in mind. If you have any ideas or suggestions, let me know, either here or email me. but … if you want to go back to predictions after qualifying, forget it, that ain’t gonna happen :-)

    It was a bit disappointing season for me, no win throughout the season. I had high hopes for that last round and still only 4th place there.
    I like to see a complete prediction boxscore for all GP’s (similar to your “2008 Formula 1 Drivers Result Statistics”) to analyze easily how Roberston won it all or how Ozzi got that sick 224/12 score.
    Congratulations to winners and hamilton, condolence to Klokan and Massa…

    • F1WolfNo Gravatar says:

      that was a scary score from Ozzi 224/12, wasn’t it :-) I could not believe it myself, I checked several times but yes, that is what he scored :-)

      Good idea with the boxscore – I will convert the Excel table I keep to the HTML over the weekend and place it at the Prediction Game page http://www.f1wolf.com/prediction-game

  6. Thanks. I’m lost for words..

    Again, Mrs Robertson will be more than pleased.

    Steve Robertsons last blog post..No Publicity is Bad Publicity?

  7. KotenokNo Gravatar says:

    If I had that plus 25 points I still wouldn’t have win the game, but I would be second!! HEHE Well, that-s my own mistake to have missed that first prediction :-) Anyway, the prediction game this season was fun to play and sometimes was a real thing trying to guess the results to get something at the end of the season ;-) Well done all the players and the scores this season has been pretty high, so there are plenty of wise man here :-) Next season hope it will be again a new version of this prediction game!!

    Thanks Wolf!!

    One suggestion, perhaps the ability to drop one race (take the best 17 scores of 18 races). There were a lot of good players who missed a week and were done. Of course, the only reason I was near the top is that I played all 18 weeks. I never won a week, and was only in the top 3 a couple times, yet placed P3 overall.

    I do have to say, that I thought I won one of the bottles of Mumm for P3. I interpreted your picture of the 3 bottles on the podium as the Magnum for P1 and the others for P2, P3. Oh well, probably just as well as my better half is expecting child 3 and she probably would get pissed if I popped a bottle of Mumm while she was the good mom.

    Other than that, I like the current format.

    • F1WolfNo Gravatar says:

      It is one of the tweaks I have in mind for next year to eliminate the worst result, that would also take care of the missed round

      sorry for the confusing picture :-) that is the photo I took in the lobby of my hotel in Montreal during the GP this year and it was meant purely for ilustration

  9. zblkhwkNo Gravatar says:

    No problem, like I said it probably is for the best anyway. It was a great season, and an unbelievable finish. I couldn’t believe he passed Glock. I was literally screaming for the rain to hold off. If it would have held for 30 more seconds, Massa would be world champion…30 seconds! All the money Ferrari spends, maybe they need to invest into weather control…LOL!
