For the top 3 places, if there is a tie, the prizes are split equally among the winners. For all other prizes, each player wins that prize :wink:

You mean if 3 players tied for 1st place, they'll have 83.33 british pounds each and the 4th player will get the 150 us dollar? :)

HeyGuys this is Shabz (Texancow)..

Thank you very much all of u..
Many thanks to Newsonf1 for this great competition..

I have never been a crazy F1 fan like all of u'll but when i was introduce to this website n had to submit my picks...that got me hooked to this amazing sport..
Didnt expect to win it..cos my round of Brazil wasnt good and thought to myself..damn i lost this n a chance to win the prize which would surprise my husband for next year race tickets or so..But i guess the other person didnt do any good too.

I'm sorry to bring this up...but as i'm from Mumbai(Bombay) and the current scenario here is not good with the terrorist attacks and thats playing on my mind,i apologise i cant express myself for winning this competition in the manner i would have...

Thank you once again all..

Hi Shabz. Congrats on winning the comp. You expressed yourself well and I hope you can get the tickets for your husband.
I am sure that many here (including myself) are praying for everyone involved in such a horrific attack against so many innocent people.
My sister-in-law visited Mumbai a couple of years ago and still raves about it. I hope that none of your family or friends were caught up in the attacks.
Holy crap on a cracker! Image

Congratulations to Shabz on winning the competition. Also congratulations to all the other winners of the competition particularly GhoGho being part of the F1 idiots group :wink:

I also wish to extend my deepest sympathy to all those affected by the Mumbai attacks. No one should ever have to go through such terror and I hope that the leaders of this world can work together to acheive peace for all humans on this earth.
I'm back and yes supporting Alonso "The Cute" in the Ferrari!

8 & Pole

Post by ruralgee » Thu Jan 15, 2009 1:33 pm

I have now been in the 8 & pole competition for many years.
I find it adds a great deal of interest for me.
I finf that the format is very good and I would not like it to change.

I am very disenchanted with the current teams status and the way Bernie is holding countries to ransom so they can hold events.
