I enjoy watching Formula 1 motor racing and to add some spice I make predictions on a sister site. Annoyingly I have been beaten into second place by a certain person who will not be mentioned but WICKED PLANS has been very lucky and is unlikely to win again this year.
Its just a bit of fun but more people making guesses/predictions would increase the fun and I would be very happy to explain the rules etc and how to get involved to anyone who also enjoys watching the motor racing. No entrance fee, no prizes but heaps of kudos for the winner!
Its just for fun but the predictors (is there such a word?) take it quite personally when their drivers let them down! Please pm or msn me if you would like to join in.FC

Lucky?, there's no luck involved. It's all carefully worked out. And I think you forgot to mention that I beat you into second 2 years running.

As for heaps of kudos - all I get is a load of stick from you!

Having said that, it is a lot of fun and I have set myself up for a huge fall this year, so make the most of the opportunity to succeed where FC failed and get involved.

It should be a very interesting season this year.

Barcelona's testing suggest its wide open this year, so its anyone's guess who will win. Maybe yours? Give it a go, its free and its fun.FC

I spent a year once getting into Formula 1. Took me ages to learn who everybody was and what colours their cars were. Then the next season they all swapped teams and had different colours!

I haven't really been able to enjoy it since it switched channels and got advert breaks. It's too hard to fall asleep in front on now.

Anyway, I predict Damon Hill will win. Smile

You dont need to know who is what and where they drive... the qualifying positions are usually posted, if you dont bother to watch qualifying and its just a bit of fun (as no-one is allowed to beat WICKEDPLANS) unless you can so give it a go? All drivers are listed as well. The more the merrier. Any more takers?FC

Just a quick reminder, F1 season starts sunday and qualifying on saturday might give you a few pointers. Dont leave it until the very last minute in case the registration riddle throws you! and predictions close a little while before the race starts of course. If you dont know where to go, please ask me.FC

Free Competition and virtual trophies up for grabs. This year F1 looks to be as unpredictable as ever, so why not have a go?
Yo do not need to know much about Formula 1 and it might even be an advantage to make a wild guess, expecially at the start of the season! Have a look on Murphyz.co.uk and start this weekend.FC

BUMP BUMP newsflash
Murphyz again agrees to host Formula 1 predictions, this time with added excitement. Predict the number of safety cars as well as top ten, fastest lap and retirements.
Its good fun and NO-ONE can keep me off the rostrum for points at the end of the year, but you could give it a go, its free.FC

I tried my best last year and still failed miserably - he has his fingernails dug deep into the podium. Any assistance gratefully appreciated.
