Firstly, we're at the half way point of the season! Well done to everyone who's got this far, it's been very competitive and the league is ebbing and flowing nicely. Kim is really closing in at the top and Rajaram and Kiszol have been charging of late so the last half of the season is going to be incredible especially with the upcoming mid-season picks.
I'm planning to make a few updates soon. For starters, I'm going to update the stats on the F1 Prediction League Page. As well as this, in the coming days I'll be releasing a half-year review/analysis as well as providing some more information about constructors and how satisfied they are with their current driver line-ups.
In the next week I'll release the categories for mid-season picks, they will be due at the same time as your Spa picks so give yourself some time to reflect on your picks before then.
Congratulations to Kiszol for their first win here in Hungary, it's been a story of consistency so far with four podiums and nine points finishes out of ten races so the win was well deserved. Rajaram and Ediglo also finished on the podium so well done to both. Excellent picking from a few to predict Hamilton and Raikkonen respectively as pole-sitter and winner. No one expected Hamilton to win here, even himself as he claimed it would be a 'miracle', so these two picks were very strong.
Hopefully I'll see you all soon, in Spa if not before. Please feel free to comment on any of the updates in the next couple of weeks. In the mean time if you have any good ideas for categories in the mid-season picks, please comment below. We've run the league in the same way in previous years so I have a good idea however I'm always open to new suggestions.
At the mid-way point of the season, here are the overall standings:
For constructors, so not to disadvantage teams with only one driver (or to protect against someone who doesn't post), players will score points in line with race finishes. See the overall results from Britain below, Kiszol will score 25 points for his 1st place this weekend. This is different to how the drivers championship will be scored. If players are tied they will be separated by the following criteria: Race > Constructors > Qualifying > Random > The time of the pick (earlier the better).
