Ok before Friday practice lets make predictions and see who is the most accurate, hence the points:

1. Who takes poll? - 10 points

2. Who has fastest lap during the race? - 5 points

3. Who makes the podium (irrelevant of order)? - 10 points

4. Who takes first place? - 15 points

5. How embarrassingly badly does Honda do in Turkey? - 1 point

6. Do the Spyker boys run each other off the track in Turkey? - 1 point

7. Does Raikkonen smile even once during the GP (proof required)? - 1 point + proof that end of the world in near


My predictions:
1. Alonso
2. Raikkonen
3. Hamilton, Massa, Alonso
4. Alonso
5. 15th and 16th place
6. YES! Assuming the car doesn't break first
7. Still pretty hot in Hell, so no
boxieblue
1.Hamilton
2.Hamilton
3.Massa, Hamilton, Raikkonen
4.Massa
5.11th and 12th place
6.NO, they wont run EACH OTHER off
7.no

This is interesting, I am in! Good topic, Romanom. thumbsup.gif

1. Who takes poll? Alonso

2. Who has fastest lap during the race? Kimi

3. Who makes the podium (irrelevant of order)? - Alonso, Hamiltom, Massa

4. Who takes first place? - Alonso

5. How embarrassingly badly does Honda do in Turkey? - 13-14

6. Do the Spyker boys run each other off the track in Turkey? - No. I am sure Vettel's first aim will always be to finish the race.

7. Does Raikkonen smile even once during the GP (proof required)? - If he is happy, then probably. You get what I mean. It is so hard to adapt. Moving from supporting someone (Michael Schumacher) who always seem to be so enthusiastic about racing, and celebrate with the team whenever possible, to supporting the Ferrari with icy Kimi....... wacko.gif

Yeah, good idea. I'll start a new post the Wednesday before Friday practice with the same questions

At the end of the season I'll add up all the points and list the results.
DeZal
Cool idea, look forward to weekly comp.

@ romanom - I've just checked, my local pub accepts purple money so yeah that's fine laugh.gif
boxieblue
@romanon-gr8 :D i'll be participating every week then smile.gif
maybe u could come with with more interesting questions, like "will alonso try to crash hamilton?" devil2.gif
romanom
Ok, qualifying over and Massa takes the poll!

Nobody scores points 1.gif

Massa? Who would have thunk it!



P.S - Add more ideas for more questions for the next GP!
boxieblue

I wonder if the Kimister is also eying up Massa for a 'race incident' as Massa is only 1 point behind.

Wouldn't that be something if both of the "junior drivers" for Ferrari and McLaren out scored the team leaders! Hamilton almost surely will it seems.

I do wonder how much fuel Hamilton and Massa have on board? There both 2/10th's ahead of their teammates.

The Honda's start 14th and 15th, Mother of God! surrender.gif
boxieblue
yeah, both hamilton and massa are supposed to be the "no. 2" drivers for their team!!!

I don't think Kimi is that stupid.
As you said...

Probably they will have a farther pit stop at the bigging and a short one at the end which probably turn them in front of their team mates thumbsup.gif
Hopefully Alonso doesn't because I didn't vote him to be at the podium laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif tongue.gif
boxieblue
lol neither did i!! i am counting on alonso coming 4th/5th. or if he makes a stupid mistakes(like he usually does while trying to overtake hamilton) maybe even 7th(yes, u r rght, it does seem far-fetched laugh.gif )
boxieblue
laugh.gif some fans we are!! we couldn't even predict the top three, irrespective of order!!
no one got the "podium finishes" right!!
it was Massa, Kimi, and Alonso, in that order! i almost got it correct, except that hamilton's tyre blew up in the closing stages sad.gif

You did pick Massa as the winner, 1st place gets the most points notworthy.gif
DeZal
Only 7 points laugh.gif still a few more races to catch up to Boxie.

I thought of a question to add...

"What lap will Pole Position sitter pit on?"
boxieblue
too difficult. the probabilty of getting a correct answer is too less
Atalantos
