Great Britain 2011

FIA did something with the difusers, which apparently the McLarens didn't like. Only Italiansdoitbetter went for Alonso winning (all your guesses here), and he shared his first place with BERNIE the bot, fisichella_2001, Brunopascal and wattoross. All the results:

1 BERNIE 5
2 fisichella_2001 5
3 wattoross 5
4 Italiansdoitbetter 5
5 Brunopascal 5
6 Scheivlak 4
7 wlleiotl 4

Germany 2011

It seems that players didn't trust Hamilton at this stage last year; there was not a single guess for him to win the race or even be second, hence a low scoring round:

1 BERNIE 3
1 Mekola 3
1 Wlleiotl 3
1 scheivlak 3
1 wattoroos 3
1 mark f1 3
1 fisichella_2001 3
1 Anderis 3
1 Apex 3
1 THE HUMAN MAN 3
1 Brawn BGP 001 3
1 brunopascal 3
1 Crazy Canuck 3
1 Estwald 3
1 jeze 3
16 JEAN 2
16 August 2
16 dank 2
16 Costaz 2
16 Grayson 2
16 Dispenser89 2
16 Ghostrider 2
16 estoril85 2
16 kismet 2
25 italiansdoitbetter 1
Average: 2.692

Hungary 2011

In Hungary, Button didn't get any love at all - not a single guess for him to be on any spot of the podium, hence another very low scoring round:

1 brunopascal 3
1 wlleiotl 3
1 Mekola 3
1 dank 3
1 mark f1 3
1 Grayson 3
1 Brawn BGP 001 3
1 jeze 3
1 Dispenser89 3
1 Crazy Canuck 3
1 Kismet 3
13 JEAN 2
13 August 2
13 scheivlak 2
13 Anderis 2
13 Costaz 2
13 THE HUMAN MAN 2
13 estoril85 2
13 Ghostrider 2
13 Apex 2

Japan 2011

It seems that by that point last year, Alonso was not really considered a good bet (only three guesses, all for third place), whereas Vettel was the favourite: 21 out of 23 players picked him for the victory. But it was not to be, hence a very low scoring round, with the bots at the top:

1 JEAN 4
2 BERNIE 3
2 Mekola 3
2 Costaz 3
2 Brawn BGP 001 3
6 Anderis 2
6 THE HUMAN MAN 2
6 Makarias 2
6 fisichella_2001 2
6 Estwald 2
6 dank 2
6 italiansdoitbetter 2
6 kismet 2
14 scheivlak 1

14 mark f1 1
14 Wlleiotl 1
14 Grayson 1
14 Apex 1
14 August 1
14 estoril85 1
14 George Costanza 1
14 Ghostrider 1

Japan average: 1.82

India 2011

First Indian grand prix: I remember complaints about bureaucracy, a stray dog, Hamilton and Massa colliding (but that was a recurrent theme of 2011, wasn’t it?), and a very typical and apparently predictable podium. Guesses here, results here:

1 Mekola 6
2 Estwald 5
2 dank 5
2 kismet 5
2 Brawn BGP 001 5
7 Iscurrega 4

Brazil 2011

Ok, I've now managed to calculate all the results from last year. It is possible that I made a mistake (or two), so I'll leave the race results there for a few days. If you spot a mistake, please let me know. I'll try to calculate the final standings in the weekend, so that's your deadline :p.

Final Standings 2011

We have a champion! After a long and tight battle, kismet wins the 2011 Guess the Podium championship! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Embarrassingly, in second place is JEAN the bot, who automatically guesses the leading three drivers in the championship. :well:

In third place, Estwald and Costaz try to figure out how they have been beaten by a bot :wave:, but they still get to drink some of the champagne. :drunk:

The final standings in detail:

Pos Player Total
1 kismet 66
2 JEAN 65
3 Costaz 64
= Estwald 64
5 fisichella_2001 63
6 Grayson 60
7 Ghostrider 58

11 italiansdoitbetter 56

34 differential 3

If you are disappointed with the above, don't despair. You can try to beat last year's champion and the bot thingy in this years competition; just head to Guess the Podium China 2012, and place your educated (or automated) guesses.
