Hello again! :wave:

 

Are you ready for the second round of Driver of the Weekend? This week we go to Malaysia and our driver is Kevin Magnussen.
 

 

Questions

  1. How many laps will Kevin complete in all the practice sessions combined?
  2. What will be Kevin's qualifying position (before any penalties are applied)?
  3. What will be Kevin's gap to to the fastest time in the last qualifying session he takes part in (rounded up to the nearest 0.1 second. If you think Kevin will take pole, indicate the gap to second place as a negative value)?
  4. What will be Kevin's finishing position in the race or, if you think Kevin will retire from the race, how many laps will he complete (choose either finish or retirement, being classified counts as finishing the race)?
  5. How much slower than the outright fastest lap of the race will Kevin's fastest lap be (rounded up to the nearest 0.1 second. If you think Kevin will set the fastest lap, indicate the gap to second fastest as a negative value)?
  6. How many times will Kevin visit the pit lane for any reason (tire change, penalty, retirement, etc.) during the race?

Please notice the slight change to question 3 and 5.

 

 

Scoring

A correct guess is worth 20 points and the minimum is 0 points. Fractional scores are rounded up. For incorrect guesses points are deducted in the following way:

  1. -0.5 points/lap
  2. -3 points/position
  3. -1 point/0.1 s
  4. predicted finish: -3 points/position, 0 points awarded if the driver retires
    predicted retirement: 10 points if the driver actually retires, 10 points for correct lap, -0.5 points/lap, 0 points if the driver finishes the race
  5. -1 point/0.1 s
  6. -8 points/visit

Although I feel question 2 and 4 are a bit too generous, I'm leaving everything except the last question (-7 -> -8) unchanged.

I will adjust these values as the season progresses and depending on the driver in an effort to keep the difficulty level relatively constant.


Deadline

Before the first practice session.


Schedule

Someone suggested that Nico Rosberg and the Monaco GP would be a nice match so I moved him there. Instead of taking Grosjean away I decided that Monaco, being Monaco, would be a nice venue for a double round.

    Australian GP - Daniel Ricciardo
    Malaysian GP - Kevin Magnussen
    Bahrain GP - Nico Hülkenberg
    Chinese GP - Marcus Ericsson
    Spanish GP - Fernando Alonso
    Monaco GP - Romain Grosjean, Nico Rosberg
    Canadian GP - Esteban Gutierrez
    Austrian GP - Max Chilton
    British GP - Jenson Button
    German GP - Sebastian Vettel
    Hungarian GP - Valtteri Bottas
    Belgian GP - Adrian Suti
    Italian GP - Kimi Räikkönen
    Singapore GP - Jules Bianchi
    Japanese GP - Kamui Kobayashi
    Russian GP - Daniil Kvyat
    United States GP - Sergio Perez
    Brazilian GP - Felipe Massa, Pastor Maldonado
    Abu Dhabi GP - Lewis Hamilton, Jean-Eric Vergne


Entry Format

Please make your guesses look something like this (this is my entry for this round) and make sure that in question 4 you indicate clearly whether you think he will finish the race or retire:
