Some interesting, and amazingly predicted, events occurred in Spain meaning Tom started to stretch out a small lead in the standings, but an impressive debut prediction from Ika Setyawati means she is already closing in on the pack despite missing the first 4 races of the season!
So let’s start start the recap in Russia…
|Number of Finishers||16||17||14||17||13|
Tom managed to get the double by predictions both Vettel’s pole & Bottas’ win correctly.
Chris nailed the number of finishers for a point, and was closest with K-Mag’s finishing position of 13th for a half point.
Unfortunately for Stu & the Dats Life boys nothing came good for them and they ended the weekend empty handed.
Paul Kelsall started well with a half point for Palmer in the first retirement pick. Can he catch the others after missing 3 races!?
Due to Tom being a little bit slack with result posting, this post (as you will have already noticed) covers both the Russian GP and the Spanish GP.
So lets head to Barcelona..
|Number of Finishers||18||16||17||17||15||16|
An audacious prediction from Tom that Raikkonen would be hit in turn 1 by Bottas on his inside ending his race rounded off an altogether strong weekend where he also scored the pole with Hamilton and the exact number of finishes earning 3 points for the weekend.
Chris & Stu both want to forget this weekend of predictions as neither manages to score points even though both were very close on a few predictions.
Paul Kelsall (Pole & Win) & the DATS Life (win) chaps picked up points with their Hamilton predictions after he did the double, but Listener of the Weekend, if such a thing existed, would surely have to go to Ika Setyawati as she earned 2.5 points on her debut by predicting a Hamilton win, being spot on with the 16 finishers and being closest to Pascal Wehrlein’s finishing position of 8th.
We are 5 races in and Tom is starting to stretch a lead from Chris, but how long will that last going into Monaco? Stu had a torrid couple of weeks and hasn’t earned any points in the last two races so will be hoping for more from his Monaco predictions this weekend.
New comers Paul Kelsall & Ika Setyawati are already closing in on Stu and the DATS Life boys leap frog him into 3rd!
