Only seven people predicted Rubens Barrichello's win. Did you?

Year-long F1 Fanatic Predictions Championship leaders Dougie and SaloolaS are all-square on 205 points each with four rounds remaining.

But Saloolas will be cursing Lewis Hamilton for his last-lap crash at Monza: it promoted Kimi Raikkonen to third place, matching Dougie’s prediction…

The prizes

First place prize

  • An original F1 painting by Rob Ijbema
  • Five F1 DVDs from Duke Video: “Formula One 1970: The uncrowned champion”, “Formula Villeneuve: A tribute to Gilles Villeneuve”, “The World’s Greatest F1 Cars”, “Champion: Hill” and “Nine Days in Summer”
  • ??60 to spend on F1 merchandise at Onpole.com

3x Runners-up prizes

Only seven people predicted Rubens Barrichello would win – they were Rafa-Navira, JUGNU, Jacob, Nano_Rock, Alex-Ctba, Leandro and kemsoudeska.

But 149 people correctly named Hamilton as the pole sitter. Here are the updated championship standings in full.

As you probably know, we’ve recently migrated from my rubbish manual system to Ian Haycox’s very smart plugin, and we’re still weeding out a few data errors, so if you think your score might be wrong please let me know in the comments and I’ll take a look.

    1. dang, I was down for the full 60 points before both brawns took the lead..

      1. Me too. S**ing Ross did me out of a hatful of points!!! Also, if Sutil hadn’t have dropped it in the pits and got third, I’d have some more points there. Damn it!!!!!

    2. I really am going through a Red Bull style slump right now. 10 points from the last 4 rounds. Curse this unpredictability!

    3. I am but a Glock in a Barrichello world …

    4. 7 People predicted Barrichello’s win but i also predicted Hamilton to be on pole. Would like to know how may got both right. Singapore would be fun.

    5. Joint 3rd and closing the gap on the leaders, this could get quite interesting!

    6. well I am half the way with 105 points… I just need a couple of strong 60’s to reach you in the top.
      With 4 races remaining I have plenty of time. :-P

    7. the table doesn’t seem to have the ‘rank’ column anymore?

      1. Yeah, I was about to say that.

        Keith, could you bring the rank column back?
        Now I don’t know whether I’m moving up or down in the rankings, thus the game has lost its colour.

    8. I can’t believe I forgot to vote! Ah well, I’m not in the running anyway :(

      1. Don’t quit! There are still 240pts to score. Anybody can win in.

    9. I have just jumped to the 10th place …..i am sharing with four people……yuppe!!!!

      1. Thinking of doing a kimi and winning the championship.;)

        1. You might need Massa’s help.:)

    10. Hi Keith

      Unless im very much mistaken, I had Hamilton for pole and Raikkonen in the top 3 yet I only have 5 points?

      Thanks in advance


    11. tell a lie, i had sutil, strange, apologies

    12. TommyB with this races best pick.
      a very respectable 35 points.
      says alot about how hard the last race was to predict, compared to earlier races when 4 or 5 ppl would be spot on for the full 60 points.
      anyway. i sucked major rear-side this time around….

    13. WEll done everybody

      Bah, I missed two rounds because I couldn’t find the links to where you could predict them. When will we be able to predict the results of the Singapore Grand Prix?

    15. Is there somewhere where we can see who pick which drivers in what positions
      not just what their scores are
