We had over 850 entries for the FX Pro sponsored prize of two grandstand tickets for the British Grand Prix on 10/11 July. And the result was incredibly, close, the winning prediction being just 0.007s out!
Fans were asked to predict the gap between Virgin Racing drivers Timo Glock and Lucas di Grassi in qualifying in Valencia.
Up to that point Glock had a 100% record of outqualifying the Brazilian, sometimes by a margin of over a second.
However Di Grassi took the opportunity to turn the form book on its head and beat Glock by 0.054s - five hundredths of a second.
Most of our tipsters went for Glock, but of the ones who went for Di Grassi four of you were within four hundredths of a second - and you think F1 is close!
553 - Paul Miller predicted a 0.045s gap, he was 0.009 away
158 - Geoff Edwards went for 0.033 so he was 0.021 away
551 - Langer though it would be 0.075, 0.021 out
727 - Suzi said 0.030, she was a scant 0.024 off the mark.
But the winner is prediction number 429 - Ibrahim Patel who predicted 0.047.
The gap was 0.054 in favour of di Grassi so Ibrahim was just 0.007 away.
Congratulations to Ibrahim. We will be in touch for details of where to send the prize. Thanks to everyone else for taking part.
Meanwhile don't forget our next initiative, the FOTA Fans Forum, powered by Santander on Thursday. The 150 fans who responded first and have secured places have now all been informed.I'll be posting details on Monday of how everyone else can follow the event as it happens and pick up the content after the event.
