2010 Prediction Game – Round 17 – Korean GP

2010 prediction game korea

F1 comes to Korea this weekend for the very first Korean Grand Prix. The venue seems to be far from finished and we are yet to see how the very fresh tarmac will cope with the power of F1 cars. At the moment however the plan is for the race to go ahead – it is time for round 17 of our prediction game. Just for the record, the last time F1 had to cope with crumbling track Lewis Hamilton crashed into Kimi Raikkonen in the pitlane and Robert Kubica won his only F1 race to date.

The race starts on Sunday October 24 at 3pm local time.

The predictions have to be placed before the start of the qualifying session (Saturday October 23, 2pm local time). Predictions can be changed, amended, there is no limit on the number of changes as long as they are made before the start of the qualifying. Predictions that arrive after the start of qualifying will not count.
