Last chance to join our GP Predictor league !

UNDER 20 hrs to go before you have to be registered for GP PREDICTOR 2017 – Fantasy Formula One !


The opening race is this weekend, so if you want to join our free “racing is everything” league on the gp predictor, just jump onto and copy/paste this code when prompted. It’s easy.


Then, choose your top ten for the first race, anytime before qualifying on Saturday. Simples.You can then either leave those predictions to carry forward throughout the season, or change them nerd style like me ! We have 6 in the league at present, the more the merrier !

Grand Prix Predictor


This year I’ve created two leagues, one for my extended family, and another “racingiseverything” league (my racing website,, for everyone else. Just copy/paste this link –…/join/58c703190cfded95318436e2

I’ve included everyone to participate, but know that a lot of you won’t want to, and that’s fine – just didn’t want to leave anyone out that’s all !

You only ever have to do this once if you wish, just pick your predictions for the first race, and then if you forget, or can’t be bothered, those predictions simply carry forward throughout the year. My wife Jen was the family winner last season…..


Testing, testing, 1, 2, 3 ?


Here’s a “tyre adjusted”  (to the soft tyre) schedule of the fastest testing times achieved by the 10 teams entered for the 2017 F1 championship. The reason for adjusting the times in this way is because with medium, soft, supersoft and ultrasoft tyres in use, we have to see a level playing field if we are to draw ANY conclusions as to who is going to be quick…

Having said that, fuel loads and sandbagging / inter team mind games all have a part to play ! We won’t really know until say FP3 at the Australian Grand Prix in a few weeks……

1. Ferrari 1:19.0

2. Mercedes 1:19.8

3. Red Bull 1:19.8

4. Williams 1:20.4

5. Toro Rosso 1:20.9

6. Renault 1:21.0

7. Force India 1:21.2

8. Haas 1:21.4

9. Sauber 1:22.0

10. McLaren 1:22.3

Sad to see Mclaren at the bottom, but good to see it’s tight at the top (or so it seems) – I predict a classic year anyway…..
