What about a bingo game with predictions that are rather unlikely to happen?
 
Here are the collected predictions: https://docs.google....m8A0D2-2wHc5og/
 
Ahead of the first practice in Melbourne, players make funny or unlikely predictions and I will update a list with all of them. From that list, everyone can then choose 16 and arrange them in a 4x4 grid. Every correct prediction will give one point(or be rated how quick into the season it happended) - filled rows, columns and diagonals of course lead to extra points, four for each. Tiebreaker will be the time in the season when the first prediction of every player turns out to be correct, earlier is better.
 
Participants have to add at least two new predictions for now, once the list below contains 30 or more points, new predictions are optional.
BTW, everyone is free to enter the game, even if you didn't add any predictions earlier.
I reserve the right to dismiss predictions if I deem them to likely to happen! :p
 
To submit your entry, simply enter your username followed by the 16 predictions, divided by slashes.
 
Example: thegforcemaybewithyou/1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9/10/11/12/13/14/15/16 for the predictions 1 to 4 to be placed in the first row, 5 to 8 in the second row, ...
 

1   2  3  4
5   6  7  8
9  10 11 12
13 14 15 16

Yes, there's no action during the season. Form your entry before Melbourne FP1 and then see how many predictions come true till the end of the final race.

Ok, so if it's not too late, I'll have some fun with inventing another possibilities:

1. There will be a race with 3 Ferrari-powered cars on the podium

2. Mercedes will experience their longest streak yet without winning a race, since the beggining of the V6 era
3. Verstappen and Hamilton will collide while running 1st and 2nd in one of the races (at least one of them retires, is forced to pit or loses track position as the effect of the collision)
4. The average WCC position of Mercedes-powered teams at the end of the year will be lower than the average WCC position of teams of any other engine supplier
5. Ocon will drive an F1 race before the end of 2019

6. Bottas will be ahead of Hamilton in WDC after 8 races , but after 16 races, Hamilton will be ahead
7. There will be a race in which at least 2 drivers outside of Ferrari, Mercedes and Red Bull will start from first two rows

Ok, we have 50 predictions to choose from. I also added a tiebreaker in the opening post, the time when your first prediction turns true will matter. So also go for a prediction that can be judged during the season.

Rules don't state that going with contradictory predictions (like 12 and 30) is not allowed so I hope this is OK. :p

Just don't put them in the same row...
And there's still small chance that Williams scores points, but a replacement driver doesn't.

There is very little chance, though, that Williams won't score points, while every driver who competes in a race does. Williams would have to not start any race this season.

Very unlikely but not 100% impossible, though, so after reconsidering I conclude that 12 and 30 are not contradictory by definition. :cool:

Or Williams swaps its drivers with another team.

I added a link to a spreadsheet to the first post. In the tab "Predictions", you can see which predictions are popular with the players of you scroll to the right a bit.

I'll try to update the status of the individual predictions during the season from time to time and you can then check out the "Grid View" and see how far from a completed row/column/diagonal you are.

 

Good luck!

Am I misunderstanding the "Players" sheet or is something wrong there? For instance, I did not pick prediction #16, but I did pick #4, #6, and a few others with low numbers.

The upper numbers in the "Players" tab only give the position of the slashes in the submitted entry. A bit below or in the "Grid View", the actual predictions should be found.

Joining in late here, didn't watch the race but have seen the results.

 

How about crossing out predictions in your opening post for predictions which have already been voided and putting a mark against ones which have been completed to make it easier for players joining in later?

 

19. Gasly to get a podium before Verstappen does in the new Red Bull has already proven to be a dud and was a relatively popular option apparently :stoned:
