- chunterer (TT): Forgot poleman of R2.
- Mekola (TH): Put Rowland twice (fourth ant tenth) in his R1 and R2 predictions, so these parts of them weren't valid.

Congratulations... to me! :beer:

Ramblings about forum progressions in the 2014 FR 3.5 Two Worlds Prediction Competition:

Nextgen-Auto: This Francophone got its second consecutive title, albeit only the one of forums. Thanks for the full support by Azur, our official French translator, the Competition ran at full speed. Round winner lotusien finished as runner-up, and masahiro finished third, in the tiebreaker won by the first for having best point score in a round than the other. albertascari, Docky and SUTIL were also round winners.

Autosport: They conformed a compact but effective group headed by scheivlak, best scorer, and Makarias. Both were round winners. Starchild was a third player in some rounds. Wonder what would happen if more people entered into the Competition.

CarAndDriverTheF1: Despite the importance of Spanish drivers in the series, the interest of this forum was tiny during the season. I was the champion of individuals and round winner, plus Henderseil and pelagra as the only other consistent players.

Ten-Tenths: The core forum of TWPC finished with low participation, with chunterer as their best scorer and eventual round winner. Also was a bunch of other enthusiasts that were one-hit wonders in their trials.

F1Revolution: They only had the presence of raulpcstr at the first round after inactivity of the forumers of this community for the rest of the season.

In an aftermath, the season showed consistency in the number of players, in the rank of 9-14 entries per round. Also showed an increase in point scorings up to the peak 21 points by two of them in the second part of the season, showing the level of accuracy of our players. Fortunately the series had TV in Europe, so people of forums of those latitudes could see the races during the year. But after all, we have to show gratitude to many users who trusted and put consistence to participate in this Competition.

About 2015, Autosport, Nextgen-Auto, Ten-Tenths, and CarAndDriverTheF1 are ensured to continue, the rest will be put into consideration. Alas, we're opened to new communities to join - If you are in a forum or Facebook group where is interest on Formula Renault 3.5 and want our Prediction Competition running there, give notice to us!

On a last note, you may have noted this FR 3.5 and Formula E Two Worlds Prediction competition were running alongside GP2 one - that is cause that theres series are the main feeder series of F1, regarding drivers, or an alternate one, regarding Formula E. These politics are keen to continue in 2015. As we said before, the key name of the competition is "Two", since that number refers that the nature of the Two Worlds Prediction Competitions are following the predictions of the most important runner-up formula series which are under Formula One.
