Here are the results for Australia. Remember, the number is based on how many laps Yoong completed before being lapped, not the lap # that he was lapped on, so the answer was 22, not 23. The numbers below are how many laps away from the answer each person was, so those who guessed "22" have a current total of 0 (that's good ;) ).

OFFICIAL PROTEST

Team BRG protests the decision of the stewards of the International "How long will it take to lap Yoong" Competition Federation. We consider that, as 8 laps of the race were run under the control of the safety car, that these laps do not count towards the results of the competition, in accordance with Section 72a (iii) of the Federation's Sporting Code. We demand that the competition is declared null and void and is re-run at the next possible opportunity, this being the GP at Sepang.

It would have been 14 without the pace car. What is that - 6+ seconds a lap??

Keep in mind, that while Yoong is written off as a wanker, he was only a half lap behind his teammate, who is considered a hero; and this with only 300 miles of pre-season testing. Yes, Mark got most of the seat time, even though Yoong is paying for it!

Toyoter, it would be well advised to give people who didn't take part in this round penalty points too, or else they would be in the lead!

I am not a webber fan but his diff was buggered and you can add 25 seconds for a dodgy pit stop.

I have nothing against Yoong because without him the team may die but don't try and tell me he's anywhere near his team mate after that performance in melbourne.

They're getting a 58 for Australia, the total # of laps in the race. Don't worry, I've been planning this competition for over 10 years, and it has been fully reviewed and approved by the FIA.

Ten years!? Either you have been following Yoong for a long long time, or you have been hindered by the Concorde agreement... ;)

I first saw Alex Yoong on an episode of the American television show "Star Search" back in 1992. He stood up to the microphone and said, "I don't have a talent, but if the judges award me first place I'll give each of them 5 million dollars." He received 5 stars from each of the judges, and Ed McMahon said, "this boy is going to be a star!"

I have followed young Master Yoong's progress ever since.

Toyoter,
My original pick was 14 laps, but I changed to 17 laps before your deadline of the 28th February(i.e.Last edited by Nikolas Garth on 27-Feb-02 at 18:49), so I figure my score should be 5. :) :wave:

Just to clarify something. YOONG isn't RICH. He just got the backing as soon as he had the chance to get into f1. He drivers a Proton WIRA!!

Yoong had problems too.

From Autosport

Paul Stoddart Q&A
Q: When you saw the dust flying at the first corner, what went through your mind?

"I knew that they were both not on a traction control start, because they were carrying problems at the start of the race, and they were both doing manual starts. I knew they were in with a chance [of escaping the accident], and if this fantastic dream of this week was going to continue I was going to look when all the dust cleared and see two black Minardis still on the track. Well, the rest is history."

Q: You say they both had problems?

"Yes. Mark was carrying a differential problem and Alex was carrying a differential temperature problem."

Aw geez! OK, I'll accept this one change, but from now on, no edits! I'm sure as hell not going to go back through 122 posts every week to see if anyone has changed their guess. This is supposed to be a competition for lazy b@stards, remember?

Heh, ok. If I make a change, I'll delete my post and do a new one. I respect your lazyness.;) :D

I predicted the first lap carnage and 4 laps under the safety car so I was looking good there for a while - I didn't count on the second safety car period though....damn.

For us Lazy B@stards who didn't get off our arses to place our predictions for Australia, I think that a score of 58 is a little extreme !!! :(

How about using the worst possible score that could have been achieved in this race.

i.e. 58 - 22 = 36

At least this gives us a sporting chance to make it up in the next few rounds !! :up:

Can't really do that though, because MachV predicted Yoong would go the whole race without being lapped and ended up with a score of 36. I can't give him the same score as those who didn't play, can I? :confused:
