2010 Prediction Game Begins – The Drivers Champion Prediction

2010 F1Wolf Prediction Game

The Prediction Game is back with season 4. As in past two years the game begins few weeks before the first race with the drivers champion predictions (more on that later in this post). But first let’s summarize the rules and minor rule tweaks.

Rules

The rules remain more less the same as in 2009. The basic rule:

Before each race send in your prediction of top 10 in the order from 1st to 10th place + the fastest lap driver + the pole position driver. You have to make your predictions before the start of the Qualifying on Saturday. There will be special Prediction Game post for each round, published on Thursday before each race weekend. You will need to place your prediction in comments under that post.

Here is overview of the rule changes for this year:

1) To reflect the changes in Formula One points system this year we will predict top 10 instead of top 8. So, the points will be awarded as follows:

For drivers:
- 1 point for each correct name among top 10
- 1 point for each correct name among top 3
- extra point for each correct finishing position
- extra point for correct winner
- 2 points for correct driver with fastest lap
- 2 points for correct pole position prediction (the actual driver on pole at the start of the race)

Teams:
- 1 point for each correct team among point finishers.

2) Instead of 2 points bonus for placing the prediction in the comments rather than sending it by email there will be 2 points deduction for sending the prediction by email rather than placing it in the comments. This is simply matter of convenience for me :-) .

3) At the the end of the season two worst scores rather than one will be erased. This is to reflect longer season – 19 races instead of 17 – and to keep players in the game even if circumstances make them miss one or two rounds.

4) New – there will be prize for the highest score achieved in a single round. Last year the highest single round score was 27 points by psychy. In theory higher scores should be possible this year with top 10 instead of 8 drivers predicted.

The end season bonus for guessing the champion correctly remains 15 points.

To see the recap of the rules check out the 2010 Prediction Game page.

Prizes

Now prizes. There will be two. The Grand Prize for the overall winner remains same as in past two years – 3 bottles of MUMM champagne. Only those older than the legal limit in their country will get the champagne. If you happen to win but you are too young there will be some alternative prize. The prize delivery options will be discussed with the winner in advance (to avoid the troubles similar to those experienced with the merchant selected to deliver the champagne last year).

b) Prize for for the highest score achieved in a single round will be 2010 F1 Season Review DVD.

The Game Begins Now – Predict the 2010 F1 Drivers Champion

Now is time to start with the 2010 Prediction Game. As in the past the first step is to predict the F1 drivers champion. This prediction has to be made before the season starts. So from now till March 11, 2010 you can predict the 2010 Formula 1 World Champion. Do not worry, even if you make your prediction and later want to change your mind you can change it as many times as you wish. Your last entry before the deadline March 11, 23:59 GMT will be the one that counts. The correct guess will be worth extra 15 points at the end of the season. Leave your prediction for 2010 F1 Drivers Champion in comments below this post. The correct champion prediction decided the winners of the prediction game in 2008 and 2009. Fifteen points can make a difference !

Registration

There is no registration required. You simply place your predictions in the comments below the dedicated Prediction Game post before each round and you are in. But to make sure you do not miss any round of the game I recommend that those who haven’t done so yet to subscribe to Prediction Game updates by email. You can do it here:

      Welcome back :-) you going to the Barcelona test this week ?

      • KotenokNo Gravatar says:

        As long as I’m not called by my office to change my schedule, YES! I hope to :-) Seeing 4 world champions in the way to post the fastest lap will be impressive, hope to see them run together in the proper time.

    looks like our 2010 Prediction Game is going to be fun again – join in here – http://bit.ly/a4rnyY #f1

  3. Aaron MullanNo Gravatar says:

    Totally got this all wrong. This isn’t for Bahrain it’s for the 2010 champ isn’t it. One word………

    HAMILTON

  4. JsosseNo Gravatar says:

    Felipe Massa (Ferrari)

  5. TiMMiENo Gravatar says:

    I will go for….

    Sebastian Vettel

    Gonna be a great season me thinks, can’t wait to see those top four teams with eight top drivers all in action in Bahrain!

  6. Not very fond of the dude, but it’s going to be Alonso.

    • KotenokNo Gravatar says:

      I would say so too… Wait to know the car’s performance in the next tests to take conclusions, in Catalunya’s track it’s easy to check who has the best aero package, and who is taking better profit from it.

  7. rotbimmerNo Gravatar says:

    Sebastian Vettel 2010 WDC

  8. IceNo Gravatar says:

    I’m going for Michael! Go all the way!!!

    Michael Schumacher is 2010 WDC!

  11. nieuweNo Gravatar says:

    Let me see. I will use deductive reasoning, I don’t like ferrari, don’t like mclaren, don’t think a lot of Renault, all though Kubica is in there So yes I will go with Kubica….

  12. pk_dude04No Gravatar says:

    Looks Like it’s going to be a tough game this year…looks like 4 top teams with the 5 other “known” teams still in close and then the rookies.

    Gonna have to say that i think Alonso will be champion though.

    Fernando Alonso (Scuderia Marlboro Ferrari) WDC 2010

    Glad this is back…thanks Wolf

  13. Saigon56No Gravatar says:

    In this particular moment, I think FERNANDO ALONSO wil be the Champion.

  14. RichNo Gravatar says:

    Fernando Alonso (Ferrari)

  15. OzziNo Gravatar says:

    Fernando Alonso (Ferrari) to beat Michael Schumacher (Mercedes) for the title… Again!

  16. Pat WNo Gravatar says:

    I’m looking forward to playing this game for the first time.
    My WDC pick, for the moment: Alonso
    I may change it after testing!
    Thanks.

    • Pat WNo Gravatar says:

      Okay now testing is over – can I change my pick? :)
      I’ll go for Button.
      Lots of people have chosen Hamilton and Alonso and I want to do something different – and I think JB has a good shot

  17. ManuNo Gravatar says:

    I will be supporting Hamilton for this season.

  18. Nic B 205No Gravatar says:

    Alonso has been quick in practice, but I think there’s enough Tilke tracks that Massa can win the title he so cruelly lost in 08.
    I’m not a Ferrari die-hard, as some people may know I’m a Rubino fan, but I’ll go for:
    ** MASSA **
