The picks you have entered are:

Winner: Felipe Massa - Hearts: I believe in a Ferrari surprise this round

Second: Fernando Alonso - Spades: Fight Fernando!

Third: Lewis Hamilton - Clubs: I don't see a win, but no way he would miss a podium finish

Fourth: Kimi Raikkonen - Diamonds: See I am getting clever at this game, I chose the 4 aces in the first places :idea:

Fifth: Heikki Kovalainen - Hopefully a good show from Renault at this home race

Sixth: Nick Heidfeld - Doing a nice season so far

Seventh: Robert Kubica - Not sure how he will do on his return, but just behind Heidfeld sounds about right

Eighth: Nico Rosberg

Pole: Fernando Alonso - The fastest man!

Never had time to put in my picks this week. Same miserable result, albeit slightly less pathetic than Indy... :(

Oongka, drake tungsten and ipah top scored this round with 50 points. Well done.
This was the highest individual score so far this season.
5 players managed to pick all 8 drivers.
The average score was 32.62, also the highest so far this season, just 0.02 points above the average for the Round of Malaysia.

We have a 3-way tie this round, Oongka and drake tungsten submitted picks for this round while ipah had picks carried over from the previous round.
Oongka was the earlier of the two to submit picks for this round. So Congratulations to Oongka, you have won a NewsOnF1 Compact Smart Digital Clock with Alarm.

Oongka managed to pick all 8 of the top 8 finishers with 2nd, 5th, 6th and 8th in their exact finishing place. Picking Lewis Hamilton for pole earned Oongka 2 additional points and scored a bonus 10 points for picking 8 and 2nd on the grid!
drake tungsten managed to pick 7 of the top 8 finishers with 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th in their exact finishing place. Picking Felipe Massa for pole earned drake tunsten 4 additional points and scored a bonus 6 points for picking 7 and Pole!
ipah managed to pick 8 of the top 8 finishers with 5th, 6th and 8th in their exact finishing place. Picking Felipe Massa for pole earned ipah 4 additional points and scored a bonus 10 points for picking 8 and Pole!
