    Welcome to the Second Annual Fantasy F1 competition run on TSR with prizes.

    Formula 1 and Silverstone. To many reading this, those two words may mean as little to you as your exam results. However this is not the case, as these two go together like peanut butter and jam except that you can still enjoy it even if you have a nut allergy.

    Anyway, the home of British motorsport will be coming to life with the sound of roaring engines on July 6th for the British Grand Prix, and the Student Room will be giving you a chance to win prizes!


    By simply predicting the outcome of the British Grand Prix, you have the chance of winning up to £25 spending money. You don't have to be a big F1 fan, all you need is a prediction. That's right, just one clairvoyant reply could help you on your way towards that one special item you've been saving up for.

    This is in addition to the year long Fantasy F1 competition we run as a special event for the British GP held this weekend at Silverstone.

    Can you predict the podium finishers for the British GP?

    Prizes.
    1. £25 Amazon voucher + a months TSR subscription
    2. £10 Amazon voucher + a months TSR subscription
    3. £5 Amazon voucher + a months TSR subscription
    4. A months TSR subscription
    5. A months TSR subscription



    Now that i've got your attention we'll get to the details.
    • You need to name first, second and third on the podium.
    • You will also predict the number of classified finishers of the race as a primary tiebreaker.
    • You will also predict the exact laptime of the fastest lap of the race as a secondary tiebreaker. (no guesses whole seconds though, e.g. it must be 1:42.356 not 1:43,)
    • You have up until 1pm Sunday(the start of the race) to enter.
    • You have to post in the thread with your guesses to enter.
    • It is completely free to enter.
    • You can only enter once and you can edit your entry up to the start of the race but not afterwards.(i can see the exact time of all edits and the previous versions)
    • No using multiple accounts to enter repeatedly as i will check and you'll lose all your entries if you do.
    • You will score 25 points for every podium position you correctly guess.
    • You will lose 1 point for every number different you guess from the total number of classified finishers.
    • If 2 people have the same points total then the smaller the gap to the fastest lap is the winner.


    After the race i will tally up the winners and losers then make the announcement.


    If you want to use the below template to enter it would be super helpful for collating the predictions.

    Hi everyone that does Fantasy F1, something different for you to get your teeth into this week.

    Similar concept to the badger Fantasy F1 we usually do but this is in addition.

    You can enter this one right up until the race starts so i'd recommend waiting until after qualifying so you can get a better idea but post it in now and start discussing how much we think the Mercedes will win by.

    The aim was not not have people pick times with .000 to stop multiple people guessing the same times and then my tiebreaker not being a tiebreaker.

    You guys both reckon the red bulls are going to be second best behind the Mercs this weekend then? No faith in Williams?

    :lol: I know. I'm putting it as that for now as a place-holder.

    Yeah, RBR will do well through the many high downforce corners of Silverstone.

    Aye, I'm not using FP1 as a guide for this tbh, sticking with form for now. Once qualifying is over and I have a weather report for sunday, I'll look at this again.

    Well, true. No use just picking the same as everyone else as otherwise it will jsut be down to the luck of the tiebreakers.

    I approve. :yep:
