Right so, simple game. All you have to do is guess the pole position time and what driver will take pole.

Rules:
[*]You cannot guess more than once.
[*]You have up until the end of FP3 to submit your guesses and any after that session will not be counted.
[*]All submitted drivers must be current ones.
[*]If no time is spot on points will be awarded to the closest time.

Ranking system:
[*]Correct guess of both Driver/time will earn you 10 points
[*]Correct guess of time/closest time will earn you 8 points
[*]Correct guess of driver will earn you 5 points.*

*Easier than guessing the closest/actual time so less points awarded.

I will update a spreadsheet after every qualifying session and post the results in the thread.

Right so the first session is the Belgium Grand Prix this weekend. (23rd-25th August.)

Last years pole position time:
Code:
107.573


Last years pole winner:
Code:
Jenson Button



Could you please use the seconds format (i.e. 107.573) as it makes it easier for me to calculate the differences.

I'm going to take a stab at:

Hamilton - 106.123

Can I put a recommendation in of changing the cut off time to the start of P3 or 1200 local race time? When we get to the Asian or Americas time zone's it's going to be either too early or too late in the day using GMT

Sure, It was just a rough time really. Your suggested time will probably work a lot better. :thumbup:

10 participants in total. Hopefully this'll get more people taking part as the rest of the season goes on.

You may have been a bit late with the posting of your time but seeing as it's the first round, I'll let it slide.

I'll post the results in about 5 minutes.

Monza Grand Prix! 6-8th September

The last three pole times:
Code:
2012 - 84.010
2011 - 82.275
2010 - 81.962


The last three pole winners:
Code:
2012 - Lewis Hamilton
2011 - Sebastian Vettel
2010 - Fernando Alonso


Note: I will be in Rome on the weekend of this race so If I remember I'll post the results whilst over there or when I'm back the following week.

Side Note: Going to look into another scoring system over the next couple of races if we get more participants. Seeing as it is very hard to guess the accurate times, I'll be looking at doing the closest within 0.100, 0.200, 0.300 etc. And points will be graded depending on your time difference. I might leave it till the beginning of next season though as we've already started this one.

My Monza guess is: Hamilton/83.560

I take it I can be a late participant? If so my prediction... Hamilton/83.750
Tried to look for a pattern in speed trap times & Pole positions for 2010/2011/2012, but Vettel was last in 2011 speed traps so anything could happen.

Oh of course, anybody can join in at any point through the season. Makes it much better if more people participate anyway :)

Hmmm seems I was a little optimistic with the low 1:23:000's going from FP 1 and 2

Monza 2013 Results

The winner of this round of guess the pole position time/driver is...

Black_Flag_11

His/her guess of 83.750 was only shy of pole position by 0.005!

Congratulations!

Yet to get the closest time and driver correct in this game.

Here are the results of this round, the time differences and the overall standings;

Sorry about the late results but as I mention previously I was in Rome so didn't have chance to calculate the results. Definitely going to consider a new points system though over the next few rounds.
