The place for speaking your mind on current goings-on in F1
by Rob Dylan 18 Oct 2021, 18:18
Yeehaw! We're back in Stetsonland as Formula 1 returns to Texas for some racing action. While some folks are talking about some kind of "championship fight" going on and all that jazz, the only championship I'm following is Predicament Predictions! Last time out Aislabie retook the lead in the championship by a few points, but it was mario that people were discussing as the new favourite to win the title.

Let's see what happens next. Here's your blank slate:

1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

Pole:
Fastest lap:
First retirement:
ROTR:
IIDOTR:
DBTMOTR:
MLP:
HFB:

There is always a point for the funniest race title you can come up with. The Minor League Premiership for this round contains Nikita Mazepin, Mick Schumacher, Yuki Tsunoda. You can also use double points at any time you like :)



So now it's my turn. Who will win? I'm going to go for the only obvious answer, and that's Vettel.

1. Sebastian Vettel
2. Lewis Hamilton
3. Max Verstappen
4. Sergio Pérez
5. Valtteri Bottas
6. Antonio Giovinazzi!
7. Kimi Raikkonen
8. Carlos Sainz Jr.
9. Lando Norris
10. Pierre Gasly

Pole: George Russell
Fastest lap: Lewis Hamilton
First retirement: Mick Schumacher
ROTR: 2019 for losing its last reject
IIDOTR: Antonio unrejectifying himself
DBTMOTR: Lance Stroll
MLP: Nikita Mazepin
HFB: 3 laps


You have until the end of FP3 to get your votes in without penalty. Good luck everyone! :dance:

Well, I don't know about that - probably will be the case that, if I do end up using it, the double points will end up being a damp squib. Besides, I nearly ended up missing the previous round in Turkey...
