Pretty high scores from a season finale, but more importantly:
Congratulations Costaz :clap: :clap: :clap: to the 2012 PTPC title!
Congrats also to runner-up DutchQuicksilver :clap: :clap:
and third place finisher race addicted :clap: rounding out the podium. Well done all of you!
Possibly disappointed in fourth is scheivlak, who was title favourite according to the stupid forecast system, but Vettel didn't score highly in Brazil whereas Massa did...

Fernando Alonso finishes the season with becoming the fourth 100% surprise of 2012. Well done!
Noteworthy is that the ten drivers past their 100% expectation marks are the drivers of exactly five teams: Williams, Sauber, Lotus, Ferrari and Force India. So you

could say that all other teams have had a disappointing season unlike this midfield-heavy quintet.

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 2012 this is 28.

Alonso jumps past Dispenser89's good guess for the 1005 surprise.
Button and Webber were two reasons why Brazil kept giving so decent points...

Hierarchy below the frontrunning teams seems unpredictable and analysing backmarker teams based on points predictions is useless.

Have your loveliest offseason ever, only to be bettered by every offseason after it, and see you again in 2013! :)

Congrats to Costaz for winning, and good job DutchQuicksilver for making such a mighty push in the last race. Any result can be explained and excused any which way we chose to, fact is that apart from Costaz all of us made it wrong.

Thanks Makarias for running the game. Once 2013 rolls around I will once again throw myself at this game with gusto.

:cool:

That was some thrilling contest!

Once the season starts there's nothing you can do but watching the drama unfold.

The good thing about that is you can't make any opportunistic blunder that throws your chances away.
The bad thing is that utter feeling of helplessness :D

In hindsight I was just too sceptical about Felipe and he proved me wrong. Though we'll never know what had happened if Bruno Senna hadn't hit Seb...... and so on and so on.

Congrats to Costaz, thanks for running the show, Mak - and roll on 2013 :clap:

Well done to Costaz and the other front runners!

It's amazing to think that Vettel could have such an amazing season but still fall so far short of our expectations of him. It's also remarkable to look back on just how much slower we all assumed the Williams and Saubers would be (and how happy I felt after the first few races, vindicated in making the right decision to put in such high guesses on the McLarens).

* pop *
* opens champagne, starts spraying DutchQuicksilver, race addicted, scheivlak *
* also sprays Makarias, who tries - unsuccessfully - to leave the podium in time *
* drinks some champagne :drunk: :drunk: *

That was very exciting, the lead to this changed hands a few times during the race... I was feeling good about my chances when Vettel dropped at the back, only to dawn at me later that Hülkenberg winning the race did not suit my plans at all :p.

It's interesting to look back at the entries and the stats and see how much we underestimated or overestimated certain drivers and teams. I went for average guesses, and, amazingly, it worked. Let's see if I can repeat it next year.

It's a great game. Well done to all the players, and many thanks to Makarias for running it, always promptly and with very interesting stuff. :kiss:

Thanks!

Will have to be a bit more focused for the new year for sure.

Again, thanks for doing these bets and games - appreciate it immensely.
