It's Bingo time and once again I'm asking for your unlikely predictions regarding the 2020 season. I'll carry over all predictions from 2019 that could or could not happen in 2020, too. But of course, new predictions are welcome.

 

Please submit new predictions until Tuesday midnight GMT.  No new predictions can be added.
 
This year the grid will change from the 4x4 grid to two 3x3 grids that overlap, that means you have to select 17 predictions this time.
You get one point for every correct prediction and bonus points for cells that connect in the rows, columns and diagonals.
4-8-12-16 and 2-6-10-14 are also considered a diagonal, and 7-8-9-10-11, 3-6-9-12-15, 1-5-9-13-17 are the super-row,-column and diagonal.

|  1 |  2 |  3 |
|  4 |  5 |  6 |
|  7 |  8 |  9 | 10 | 11 |
          | 12 | 13 | 14 |
          | 15 | 16 | 17 |

Two connected cells that turn out to be true in the end give 2 extra points.

Three connected cells that turn out to be true in the end give 4 extra points.

Four connected cells that turn out to be true in the end give 8 extra points.

Five connected cells that turn out to be true in the end give 16 extra points.

 

In case of ties in the final standings, the timestamps of when your predictions turn true will be used as tiebreakers.

 

To submit your entry, simply enter your username followed by the 17 predictions, divided by slashes.
 
Example: thegforcemaybewithyou/1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9/10/11/12/13/14/15/16/17 for the predictions 1 to 17 to be arranged as in the grid above.

 

Deadline is the start of the first practice in Austria to submit your entry.

Bleu's predictions from his PM:

1. A driver gets banned due to penalty points (#17 above)

4. No driver will be in Q3 every race weekend (#19 above)

 

My additional new predictions:

1. A driver will be diagnosed with the Corona virus

I'll carry over all predictions from 2019

I guess some of them could have lost their appeal since 2019 but OK. :p

 

But of course, new predictions are welcome.

It's just easy to invent them, isn't it?

1. Williams will be in Q3 at least once

2. Racing Point will beat Ferrari in WCC

3. Stroll will score more podiums than Perez
4. Ferrari will not win a race
5. A team will not start in a race (double DNS for whatever reason, technical problems, illegal car, a protest against FIA, coronavirus-related problems, etc.). The race has to take place, of course.

6. There will be a race with 3 Mercedes-powered cars on the podium

7. Stroll will win a race or take a pole position

Let's add some more as the deadline is near:

- Intermediate or wet tyres won't be used at all in any of the races

- there will be only 6 or fewer podium finishers in the whole season

- there won't be a single clean overtake on Zandvoort (1st lap, pit stops, lapping, illegal moves or gaining position over a driver who spun or ran off the track or has a clear mechanical problem don't count). If the race is cancelled, it counts as no overtakes too.

I'd say yes, the new deadline is now the start of the first FP of the first race that will actually take place. All players can change their submitted entry until that, too.

I'd say that this week, new predictions can be added if someone wants to be creative again. Then next week until the start of FP1 you can edit your entry or submit new ones.

P.s. what about some predictions which already came true or won’t happen (like Singapore isn’t going tot take place, see prediction 27, or Mercedes not on pole, see prediction 59)?

Thanks for the hint, I went through the list and marked the predictions for races that will not be held, please do not select those.

 

For others(13 14 45 61), I made small changes.

#5 is already mathematically impossible, I think, or at least practically impossible

 

A few more that have already turned out to be true or false already, i think.

It's still possible – though it means the remaining nine races must be split evenly between Bottas, Gasly, and Verstappen. That would be quite something.

Confirmed false: 14, 15, 45, 66, 67

 

Is that right?

Not anymore.

 

Confirmed true: 7, 9, 13, 18, 31, 33, 44, 46, 47, 49, 73
Confirmed false: 14, 15, 45, 66, 67

 

Is that right?

There are a bit too many that turned out to be true for what were supposed to be "unlikely" predictions. :p

70 is also confirmed true.

 

At the moment 6, 16, 26, 32, 52, 53 and 54 are true but those can change.
