Silverondeo tops Indian Grand Prix Predictions
Silverondeo topped what was a massively high-scoring 17th round of the Castrol EDGE Grand Prix Predictor at India.
As was the case in the previous round at Korea, a front three led by Sebastian Vettel proved a popular choice among the Predictor community.
A massive 1,913 players managed to pick not only Vettel for victory but also Fernando Alonso for second and Mark Webber for third – earning the 30-point podium bonus in the process.
That produced another weekend of massive scores across the board.
Top of the pile however was Silverondeo with a massive 130-point haul, and an even more impressive 78 per cent prediction accuracy.
In addition to calling the top three finishers, shouts of Lewis Hamilton to lead home team-mate Jenson Button for fourth and Felipe Massa to claim sixth also proved perfect,.
The run didn’t stop there however: having called the top six in perfect order, there were also maximum points for backing Romain Grosjean for ninth and Bruno Senna for 10th.
That meant only seventh and eighth failed to deliver maximum points – and even the only narrowly, as a shout of Kimi Raikkonen to come home eighth was just one place wide of the mark.
The only real blot therefore was Sergio Perez, who ended up retiring from the grand prix following a collision with Daniel Ricciardo.
A 125-point total was boosted by a further five for predicting Vettel would claim pole.
The upshot was a bumper 130-point haul, far and away Silverondeo’s best total for the season and just enough to top a high-scoring gameweek.
It was by means straightforward, however.
Double-M Racing, for example, amassed the exact same total, and managed the amazing feat of predicting the top-eight drivers in order.
Silverondeo however claimed the gameweek honours courtesy of submitting his predictions earlier than Double-M Racing.
Sportracing F1 was equally impressive, correctly predicting down to ninth en route to topping the Dutch league.
As a result, the team moved up to 33rd in the global rankings.
Jedi35 meanwhile topped the Polish league with a 127-point total, which amazingly included correctly selecting the 10 drivers who managed to score points in India – albeit with the middle order slightly out of sync.
