The place for speaking your mind on current goings-on in F1

Are you ready for some PP?

Hello members, old and new, to the latest season of Predicament Predictions, our forum's yearly guessing game, for which the winners shall receive GRAND PRIZES!!! I am your host, Rob Dylan, and for the fifth year I am honoured to be running the competition.

So it's very simple. What you do is guess the top 10 result of this weekend's grand prix. This time we're guessing Bahrain on Sunday. After we guess the top 10, below we have a list of bonus things to guess.

Pole position: who will be on pole?
Fastest lap: who will get fastest lap?
First retirement: who will be the absolute bottom of the sheet, to retire first?
Reject of the Race: what will be the most rejectful and (hilariously) dreadful thing to happen this weekend?
Infinite Improbability Drive of the Race: the opposite, what will be the most unexpected positive?
Deadbeat Teammate of the Race: who will mathematically be the furthest behind their teammate in the results of the race?
Minor League Premiership: who will be the highest classified of our rookies this year?*
How Far Back: how many laps exactly will the last classified finisher be?
Funniest race title: of course, the funniest alternative name for every weekend's grand prix will be given a bonus bonus point. Make me laugh.

*Candidates for 2021 Minor League Premiership are therefore: Yuki Tsunoda, Nikita Mazepin, Mick Schumacher.

All right, one more thing, just so you know how the points are totalled. It used to be done that the person who won would get 25 points, second place 18, etc. But since I've been running it I count every individual point you collect over the races. So if this race you come first with 15 points, you get 15 points. The points are counted as follows:

- 1st place correctly guessed: 5 points
- 2nd and 3rd place correctly guessed: 3 points each
- 4th to 10th place correctly guessed: 2 points each

If you correctly guess the driver being in the top ten, but just in the wrong place, you get 1 point. So if you guess Hamilton wins, but he finishes 2nd, you still get 1 point for having Hamilton in your top ten.

Pole position: 2 points
Fastest lap: 1 point
First retirement: 2 points
Reject of the Race: 3 points
Infinite Improbability Drive of the Race: 3 points (good luck guessing these two)
Deadbeat Teammate of the Race: 2 points
Minor League Premiership: 1 point
How Far Back: 1 point
Funniest alternative title (put that at the top of your post): 1 point

So, 41 points up for grabs! I'll put forward the template and my submission in the next post. :) Any questions, just ask. Also, if you win, GRAND PRIZES are up for grabs!

Before I forget, the predictions have to be made by the end of Free Practice 3. And I'll be watching this time, because for once since being restarted, our forum clock is now correct! ;)

No worries if you're a little late. The general rule is, if you post an hour or two late, you don't get pole points. If you post after qualifying, your answer gets half-points.

Good to see so many predictions already! I'll have to get round to coming up with a GRAND PRIZE for this year's podium. For example, in 2018 our winner RAK received a signed, framed photograph of Karun Chandhok in Hispania Racing overalls, found by yours truly at Silverstone that year. In 2019 RAK won multiple cans of Rich Energy, though I'm not sure if they ever arrived :oops:

In my fifth year as host (so I only have the records back to 2017 inclusive), this is actually a new record for the series! Good to see so much enthusiasm. The closest to this that I have found in my records is the opening round of 2017, which had 27 entrants. History has been made here :lol: And honestly it's nice to see some regular activity on the forum again after so much downtime. I'll make sure to get some properly good prizes for the winner this year (and there's some already in the pipeline!).

I'll get counting the scores tomorrow.

For goodness sake RAK!

In Bahrain, we had a straight fight between Ducktanian and Frogfoot for victory in the opening round of Predicament Predictions. But it appears we have something of a Schumacher here with our perennial victor RAK. The defending champion from 2018, 2019 (and 2020 if you count the unofficial championship) steals the win at the very last minute by somehow correctly guessing exactly what ROTR and IIDOTR would be a week in advance. I can only say congratulations!

Admittedly in retrospect, Mazepin was always going to be a relatively easy guess. From here on in it won't be so simple as the season goes by!

See you in Imola for Round 2 :dance:

Well, that was a round with decent scoring. If I keep this up, I might get second or third overall at the end of the season again!

There's still a lot to play for here, but it's nice to get off on the right footing. I think Mazepin's ROTR here was almost inevitable; if he keeps this up, he'll be an ROTY candidate in no time. That said, as mentioned in the comments for the race itself, he did still manage two more corners than I had originally expected; I was thinking a dive-bomb in the first corner that would run the risk of knocking out other drivers in the process.
