Amazing, 22 out of 22 had guessed a Ferrari 1-2. I mean "amazing" because it shows the sort of domination that team has achieved. It does very hard to make differences in score when both Ferraris end the race.

Actually 21 out of 22(!) forecasted a Mickey's win. Those two are playing games while racing, and I feel a bit uncomfortable about it. I confess that when I saw that "dead finish" game(?) I thought about this game :D :blush:

Appart of those two, people guessed Juan Pablo 10 times, Kimi 6 times, Ralf and DC, 2 times and Trulli and Fisichella one time. I suppose it shows the current opinion about the "other" WDC: Monty and Kimi are the new stars and when Ferrari becomes less than perfect...

This time Ferrari invited David to the podium :) , and it made a perfect score for Chrissy Boy :clap: In fact he was the only one who didn't guess Schuey as winner! Add that he was the only (with astute BERNIE ) who guessed for David and we get a splendid performance, congratulations!

BERNIE was second, one of his best rounds, but he could not overtake MAX (he is his president , after all). Not a lot to comment besides that, as almost everyone has got 4 points (even me!) in this Ferrari party ;) Only two "failed" this round: Zawed and LuckyStrike1 , because they thought Ferrari was human technology and put Barry in third position!

Well, we arrive to the last race . I suppose our amazing gerry will very likely be the winner, as he has a two points cushion , and it probably is very hard to overcome... except if Ferrari messes the race and the podium blows up !

Estwald has a (thin) possibility, he has to get THREE points above gn (remember the rule to untie is to be above in the round before); knowing Estwald, I think he is able to do it, be he will have to risk everything becasue I'm sure gerry will play a "Carlos Sainz" song! :)

SeanValen is tantalizing close to being a challenger ;) ; he has been figthing back since his Nurburgring failure . Actually he needs FOUR points over gerry, and TWO points over Estwald (how you spell "unlikely "?). Mathematically Viss1 has a chance but I cannnot even to mention what has to happen in Japan to be the winner :cat:

By the way, just one of the three leaders chose to guess thru private messaging: the leader gn. We had a fun reply there and I admired his choice of Kimi as third in the race... just to see a lot of people chose that very same guess, one of them Estwald himself :eek: These two really must be twins ...

For the next round we will use the same PM option: the first three (gn, E and SV) can optionally make their guess through PM to me. Obviously they are free to put it on the thread, of course.

Remember you can change your guess until just one hour before the official time for the first start of the race.

Now more than ever, I say to all of you "THANKS! ". We will meet soon to see what happen in Japan!

Goodbye, have a good time there in Real World! :wave:

Thanks, Schummy! We'll see if we can cook up a weird, unexpected result to the Japan GP :p

I'm sorry! For some reason the system lately not always shows me a pop up telling me about new messages :confused:

Your bet was MS - JPM - RB, and it gets 3 points. Sadly, you missed the opportunity to include Coulthard ;) :cat:

I imagine your face was like Patrick Head's one when the RS/JPM "incident" happened. Your total now is 45 points and you are between Schuting Star and Zawed. Sadly, BERNIE looks to be too much away to catch, but who knows, a weird wet weather grid can play havoc with BERNIE's guess in Suzuka :)
