Who is the best predictor on the podcast?

Since the podcast started in 2015 we’ve each been predicting the top 3 in each race, but until now we’ve never gone back to see who was right or wrong. So now we’re into our 4th season of F1 coverage it’s time to put it to the test and find out if any of us are actually any good at it.

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!

After 16 races the league table looks like this
