2009 Prediction Game – Round 1 – Australian GP


As there many people already sending in their predictions for Australian GP together with the prediction of the drivers champion I decided to bring the ” official”Round 1 of 2009 F1Wolf Prediction Game post a day earlier than planned. We have been predicting the 2009 drivers champion for little over 3 weeks. You can see how you or others predict the outcome of 2009 F1 championship (as well as the summary of the rules) here:

2009 Prediction Game – Rules and the 2009 Champion Prediction

If you haven’t made your prediction for the champion yet, you can still do it. If you made one, you can still change it. The deadline is beginning of the first free practice session in Australia. To make life easier you can leave your 2009 drivers champion prediction also in the comments below this post. I will summarize all the predictions in a separate post, probably after my return from Melbourne.

Now is also time to make the predictions for 2009 Australian GP. So, as usual, before the start of the qualifying session leave your prediction in the comments below this post:

Pole Position:
Fastest Lap:
Top 8 finishers (in order from 1st to 8th):

Some of you already made your predictions for Australian GP by leaving comments here, those predictions will of course count. But if you change your mind, you can leave your new prediction below this post. Just make sure you do it before qualifying.

Thank you all for joining and let’s have some fun !

      Hopefully not through a diffuser ban, but for now FIA and race stewards left it clear, they’re valid as well :) Stunning, I knew these cars were fast when saw them in the pre-season tests, but I still do not manage to understand the radical change suffered by them! Even if they’re running low fuel tanks, the times are blasting!
