Who is the best predictor of 2019?

Before every race we always go through our predictions for the top 3 on the podcast and as we might be a bit competitive we decided to make a competition out of it last season, which Paul won (even though Lee complained he missed a race) so let’s do it again for 2019 and see who comes out top this year.

The rules are, all 5 of us will predict the top 3 for each race during the week before and you get 3 points for each correct prediction in the right place and 1 point for a driver you predict finishing inside the top 3 in a different position to where you thought they would be. So by the end of this season we’ll know who is the prediction King or Queen of the podcast!. But there’s a twist this year, every race we’ll have a guest predictor for the top 3 so can the team beat the guests as well?

Also if you want to join in with your own predictions we’ve got our league running here.

The scores so far after 7 races are:
