A PROMOTIONAL ARTICLE:
The Vital Formula One Prediction Competition is back for the new 2013 Formula One World Championship season.
Brilliant in its simplicity, join today to show everyone just how great your knowledge of the sport is! Get your friends to join in and have a mini competition for bragging rights throughout the course of the new season.
So why not join in and give it a go!
For every race you select two drivers who will score you points.
Every race has its own individual thread so predictions will only be taken from these threads on our Prediction Competition Forum.
To post you will need to Join Vital F1
It’s free and easy to join up and join in on VitalF1.com, simply click the link and register a username.
Race weekend predictions must be made before Qualifying starts.
* You cannot alter your prediction once it is made (first prediction will be used).
Points will be awarded as follows…
1st : 25 points
2nd : 18 points
3rd : 15 points
4th : 12 points
5th : 10 points
6th : 8 points
7th : 6 points
8th : 4 points
9th : 2 points
10th : 1 point
The points will be awarded on the ‘cross the line’ unofficial results (not classified results), to avoid complicating the points by having to amend them when the inevitable F1 politics come into play following post-race time penalties and/or disqualifications.
For some races we will not just be predicting 1st – 10th place, but for some races it will be 4th-13th or 10th-19th etc [with all drivers who finish outside of the stated points places scoring zero].
To enable people to enter while they are away for any period of time, we have already selected what to predict for each race in advance, so if you wish to predict a couple of races at a time, or if you’re brave and want to predict the whole season from the start, you can!

Standings and scoring
Standings are decided in points order.
If points are level, the position is settled on who has the most ‘race wins’. A ‘race win’ is awarded to the user who outscored all the other entries for that race (in the case of a draw, all drawn users will receive a ‘race win’).
If points are still level, the position is given to the user who entered the game first.
