Nothing has changed since last December, when Racing Point confirmed they would give their second seat – the last open seat on the 2019 grid – to Lance Stroll. There was still a chance the results would change if one of the announcements was retracted or if a temporary replacement was needed for one of the drivers. That did not happen, and so we can finally congratulate TurnOffTheLights on a well-deserved victory in the 2019 Silly Season Trophy. 
 
2003: Brian O Flaherty
2004: Flying Panda
2005: lukywill, Viceroy, Makarias
2017: ANF
2018: Marklar
2019: TurnOffTheLights
 
TurnOffTheLights submitted his prediction 473 days ago, on November 30, 2017. His predictions were mostly popular and sensible. Indeed, his pick was the fifth closest to the average pick. Perhaps the key pick (one that he shared with the third placed Costaz) was predicting Toro Rosso would field an unknown driver, which came true as nobody back in late 2017 imagined Alexander Albon would join the grid.
 
The best players managed to get 10 exact picks out of the 20 available. This signifies a much sillier season than before, as last year Marklar won with 16 exact picks. Last year, the players scored between 71 and 101 points, while the range has dropped to 65–86 this year.
 
Here are the full results:

Place	Name			Points	Exact	Subm
 1	TurnOffTheLights	 85.12	10	10
	AVERAGE PICK		 82.00	10	
 2	noikeee			 81.71	10	 7
 3	Costaz			 80.41	10	15
 4	DutchQuicksilver	 79.65	 8	16
 5	RaikkonenFan96		 78.24	 9	11
 6	Kev00			 78.24	 9	12
 7	Grayson			 75.06	 8	18
 8	markelov74		 74.35	 8	 5
 9	Makarias		 72.29	 8	 8
10	KWSN - DSM		 72.00	 7	 6
11	turk157			 72.00	 7	13
12	sladealonso		 70.41	 7	 3
13	SpaceHorseParty		 70.29	 7	 1
14	scheivlak		 70.18	 8	 9
15	M2000-5			 69.65	 7	14
16	Brawn BGP 001		 69.53	 7	 4
17	f1paul			 65.88	 6	17
18	Marklar			 65.47	 6	 2

Even in a truly silly season, it seems that it pays to be sensible. The average pick, which uses sensible picks by design, was only beaten by the winner.

 

Now, some quick statistics on the 2019 drivers:

Name			Team		Total	In team	Most popular team
Alexander Albon		Toro Rosso	 0	 0	n/a
Valtteri Bottas		Mercedes	18	 8	Mercedes (8)
Pierre Gasly		Red Bull	18	 0	Toro Rosso (18)
Antonio Giovinazzi	Alfa Romeo	14	11	Alfa Romeo (11)
Romain Grosjean		Haas		14	 9	Haas (9)
Lewis Hamilton		Mercedes	16	16	Mercedes (16)
Nico Hülkenberg		Renault		18	18	Renault (18)
Robert Kubica		Williams	 7	 4	Williams (4)
Daniil Kvyat		Toro Rosso	 1	 1	Williams (1)
Charles Leclerc		Ferrari		17	 6	Ferrari/Haas (6)
Kevin Magnussen		Haas		13	13	Haas (13)
Lando Norris		McLaren		11	 6	McLaren (6)
Sergio Pérez		Racing Point	18	12	Racing Point (12)
Kimi Räikkönen		Alfa Romeo	 7	 0	Ferrari (7)
Daniel Ricciardo	Renault		18	 0	Red Bull (9)
George Russell		Williams	 8	 1	Racing Point (7)
Carlos Sainz		McLaren		18	 0	Red Bull/Renault (9)
Lance Stroll		Racing Point	16	 0	Williams (16)
Max Verstappen		Red Bull	18	18	Red Bull (18)
Sebastian Vettel	Ferrari		18	18	Ferrari (18)

The most popular driver not on the 2019 grid is Esteban Ocon, who was picked by every player. He's followed by the former McLaren duo of Alonso and Vandoorne. Both of them were picked by 17 out of 18 players (and none were bold enough to leave out both of them). Other omissions were picked by less than half of the participants. They are led by Marcus Ericsson and Brendon Hartley (7 picks each) and Nirei Fukuzumi (5 picks).

 

Once again, congratulations to TurnOffTheLights! I invite you to follow the interim results of the 2020 Silly Season Trophy, as well as to prepare for the 2021 Silly Season Trophy. We have just over seven months until submissions are open!

Congrats! It was a treacherous, bloody, vicious fight and I vaguely smelt victory, but you finally prevailed at the end. Waiting another 365-or-so-days for a rematch.  :p
