Congratulations to AcuraF1 :up: :up: :up: :clap:
for winning the 2008 Place The Points Competition!
Congratulations also to runner-up kismet :up: :up:
and third placed ville :up:
for adding volume and symmetry to the podium.

The gap in the end turned out to be large and clear, as AcuraF1 still had plenty to gain from Massa.
Overall there were some remarkably high scores for being a final round, a reflection of how no one driver ran away with a massive points haul this season.
And even for those that had little faith in Hamilton and Massa this season, the last round could still throw a few points, as big disappointments Räikkönen and Kovalainen both managed to score points...

Felipe Massa manages to fulfill his expectation quota for the season in the very final race, whereas WDC Lewis Hamilton falls just short of his par. At least he was in the ballpark and, you would have to say, he scored enough points anyway!
A wonderful outstanding record is made by the three Finnish citizens, as those are the sole points scoring drivers who fail to beat a single guess placed on them.
Of the 22 drivers that started the season with a drive, only the Force India and Super Aguri drivers failed to score a single point. Fisichella would rank as the biggest disappointment of those, as he on average was expected to score 2.4 points. So the expectations weren't huge to begin with.

EXPLANATIONS:
Expect: Expectation fulfillment. The driver's current points score as a percentage of the average points placed on him (not rounded off to integer points)
Surprise: The driver's points score as a percentage of the maximum points placed on him plus one. When this number is reached, the driver has achieved a 100% surprise, by beating the highest expectations on him for this season.
Beat: How many players' expectations the driver has managed to beat. The maximum amount is the number of entrants for the season; for 2008 this is 39.

Yeah thanks for rapid updates during this season.

I could not predict Kimi's tyre problems in his second Ferrari year. :(

Will be fascinating next year how the points will work out.
