2023 Australian Grand Prix - Predicament Predictions

Post by Batty »

'Straya!

Well, that was a dandy KSA GP....Now we head off to Melbourne, Australia, a place where there are 4 seasons in one day. Will crowd spur on Piastri to get into the points ala Webber 2002 or will McLaren be better off selling clothes? Will Aston Martin continue to punch upwards? Will Jos ever be happy? Will Ferrari Ferrari? All those questions and more will likely not be answered in this Grand Prix. Also first GP with F3 and F2 in Australia which is really weird.

Get your predictions in before the end of FP3 otherwise a penalty!!!

Template for predictions:
1. Driver finished 1st
2. Driver finished 2nd
3. Driver finished 3rd
4. Driver finished 4th
5. Driver finished 5th
6. Driver classified 6th
7. Driver classified 7th
8. Driver classified 8th
9. Driver classified 9th
10. Driver classified 10th

PP: The Pole Sitter
FL: Who gets the FL
First Retirement: Also counts DNS
ROTR:
IIDOTR:
DBTMOTR: The driver who is mathematically the furthest behind their teammate in terms of positions when the race is done.
LP: Who ever is classified as last place
MLP: Highest classified driver between Nyck De Vries, Logan Sargeant, or Oscar Piastri

Have fun!

The 2023 "I have a very intelligent joke to make. Because Australia is in the southern hemisphere, let's put our picture upside down to imply that the event is actually happening upside down because they're in the southern hemisphere, and that's on the underside of the Earth.

This will get us 50 extra likes on our tweet, which is what the un(der)paid intern's job priority is to achieve" Australian Grand Prix

Chaos ensured as Ferrari scored 0 points, Alpine scored 0 and George and Albon both scored 0. But basically everyone guessed Max as the winner and pole position as well as a lot of people got Magnussen as Deadbeat Teammate and LP since he's a classified finisher and Piastri as MLP.
