A new leader
Up 2 places to become the new leader of the pack is Rohan1504 thanks to an entirely correct top 5 – it appears the rain dance worked wonders!
69 is a magic number
The meteoric rise of Richard’s Really Racy Racers was more than aided by the rain which fell towards the end of the race. This kind of insight would surely see the team manager quit their day job and become a weather forecaster – a reliable foresight like this could prove invaluable!
The only way is up
Down 20 places to rest in 70th position is Franvan. Even without the rain to change the complexion of the race it was always going to be a damp squib for the team with a double Toro Rosso retirement putting pay to a decent points haul.
Nobody saw it coming
A double Toro Rosso retirement after so much promise on Friday scuppered many a prediction. An impossible powerunit to rely upon, without it they surely would be comfortably in 5th place in the Constructors’ Championship. Oh to be a Renault designer in yet another meeting with the Red bull bosses to explain yet another engine failure.
Food for thought
Difficult to predict how the drivers will do in the usually sweltering Hungary. Will Force India be able to continue their much improved form?
In this section there will be a question each week to test your memory from GPs gone by. The idea is not to look it up but see if you can remember it first!
What is the one thing that would stop this London circuit from ever happening?
(HINT: It happens in the last 25 seconds of the lap)
(Answer will be posted in the next Predictor summary)
Last question’s answer
The question was: The infamous Wall of Champions was predictably given its fair share of media coverage this weekend, but who on the current grid has fallen victim to its curse?
Answer: Vettel and Button have both had brushes with the Wall of Champions in the past. The Wall has been silent over recent years; perhaps it is losing its curse.
Bollocks!!! All I had to do was stick to my original placing with Bottas 5th and Kimi 6th and I would’ve had the top 6 correct.
Awe well I had a 48% accuracy score with 95 points and back into the top 50.
Re – Wall of Champions, perhaps the wall has not claimed many victims of late due to the reduced race speeds and tyre/fuel saving, I seem to remember Hamilton taking pole one year after leaving a scuff of tyre rubber on there, but until the cars are more on the limit for more laps we may not see the great wall claim any serious scalps.
On a side note, I’m surprised Pastor hasn’t got acquainted with said concrete.
