'If It's F1, It's Vital'

F1 Prediction Competition 2012 - Round 3

Formula One now takes a little break before the Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai on April 15.

But there is no need to wait to get your latest entries in.

For the opening race in Australia, the season kicked off in a highly competitive fashion with 10 users scoring a maximum 43 points.

For Malaysia however, the unpredictability of the rain left many disappointed, 7 users in fact scored zero points, while the race win went to Cherry_Bozzo for scoring 16 points for the combination of Schumacher and Hamilton.

So after two races, we have a five-way-tie for the lead of the standings, Push The Button, Ant_F1podcast, eddiemitchellfan, last seasons champion Adelaide Blue and northstandmark have all scored 58 points so far, collecting one race win each.

If you have not yet entered yet then all is not lost, the VitalF1.com prediction competition is just-for-fun and is free, so why not enter and join in the fun? All you need is a Vital login, either from our sister site Vitalfootball.co.uk or just join up and join in on VitalF1.com, it only takes a few clicks so give it go!

Once registered as well as entering the VitalF1.com Prediction Competition you can also join in with the discussion over on our VitalF1.com forum and discuss all the latest news on vitalf1.com via our articles.

How to play

The Vitalf1.com Prediction Competition is simple.

For every race this season, select two drivers and score points for the positions that they end the race in. That’s it. We did say it was simple!

Rules

Every race has its own individual thread on our Vitalf1.com Prediction Competition Forum and predictions on these threads will be the only ones counted towards our standings.

Race weekend predictions must be made before Qualifying starts and you cannot alter your prediction once it is made (ie your first prediction will be used).

The points will be awarded in a 'cross the line' unofficial results basis (ie not the classified results), to avoid complicating the points results by having to amend them when the inevitable disqualifications, time penalties and politics come into play after the chequered flag has fallen.

Predictions

50% of the races we will simply be predicting 1st - 10th place, but for other races, predictions will be for 4th-13th or 10th-19th etc this will be clearly stated at the start of each race prediction thread.

To enable people to enter while they are away for any period of time, we have already selected what to predict for each race in advance, so if you wish to predict a couple of races at a time, or if you're brave and want to predict the whole season from the start, you can!

Points Scoring

First example; the 2012 season begins in Australia this year and the predictions are for 1st - 10th place.

The two drivers you select will score the same points as they achieve in the official F1 standings.

1st : 25 points, 2nd : 18 points, 3rd : 15 points, 4th: 12 points, 5th : 10 points, 6th : 8 points, 7th : 6 points, 8th : 4 points, 9th : 2 points, 10th : 1 point, 11th : 0 points, 12th : 0 points, 13th : 0 points, 14th : 0 points, 15th and lower: 0 points etc.

So for example if you selected Vettel as your first driver, who goes on to win the race, you will score 25 points for him. If you selected Webber as your second driver who goes on to finish 5th you will score a further 10 points, which will score you a total of 35 points for the race.

Simple.

Second example; the third race of the season is the Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai on April 15th. For this race predictions are for 5th – 14th place.

This time the two drivers you select will score points based on where they end the race as follows:

1st: 0 points, 2nd : 0 points, 3rd : 0 points, 4th: 0 points, 5th : 25 points, 6th : 18 points, 7th : 15 points, 8th: 12 points, 9th : 10 points, 10th : 8 points, 11th : 6 points, 12th : 4 points, 13th : 2 points, 14th : 1 point, 15th and lower: 0 points etc.

So for example if you selected Vettel as your first driver again and he again goes on to win the race, you will score 0 points for him this time around. While a fifth placed Webber as your second driver will score you 25 points, which will score you a total of 25 points for the race.

Again simple!

The user who scores the most points over a race weekend will be awarded the “race win”, if more than one user scores the same points during a Grand Prix then all those users who scored the most points will be awarded a “race win”.

Standings

Standings are decided in points order.

If points are level, the position is settled on who has the most 'race wins'. If points are still level, the position is given to the user who entered the game first.

Updates

Updates on the race results and the overall standings will be updated over on the forum and an article will also be published on the vitalf1.com.

Good luck!
