The Red Light Challenge
For each race in the 2019 Formula One Season, you need to complete all 5 of the red light challenges to ensure you have the best chance of scoring as many points as possible. However, be warned! Just as you will be rewarded for making good predictions, you will be penalised if things don't turn out your way!
Each time you complete a challenge, you complete one step of your predictions and when all 5 are completed you MUST PRESS SAVE to ensure your predictions are stored. At this point, your race predictions are ready to go. Your selections can be made or changed any time up until 15 minutes before each race is scheduled to begin (GMT). Please ensure you save any changes and see the green tick before signing out.
RED LIGHT 1: Who will finish 1-2-3 in the race?
You must choose the 3 drivers you believe will finish on the podium for each Grand Prix, in the actual order you think they will finish, you will score the following points:
10 pts for each driver who finishes in the exact position you predicted
5 pts for each driver who finishes on the podium, but not in the exact position you predicted. For example, a driver who comes 2nd when you predicted he would come 1st or 3rd
Minus 2 pts for each driver who does not finishes on the podium. For example, a driver who comes 4th or worse when you predicted he would be in the top 3
A 20 pt BONUS will be awarded if you can predict all 3 podium positions exactly. This would give you the BIG 50 points!
RED LIGHT 2: Who will be your "Team of the Race"
Choose YOUR OWN TEAM (consisting of ANY 2 drivers in the race) who you think will perform best in each Grand Prix. You will score pts based on the following:
5 pts for each of your drivers who finish the race in the Top 6 (according to the official result)
2 pts for each place either of your drivers makes up from their grid position during the race. For example, a driver who starts in 14th and finishes (according to the official result) in 7th, will score 14 pts (7 x 2 pts)
Minus 2 pts for each place either of your drivers loses from their grid position during the race. For example, a driver who starts in 3rd and finishes (according to the official result) in 18th, will score -30 pts (15 x -2 pts)
5 pts if either of your drivers records the fastest lap of the race
RED LIGHT 3: Predict how many cars will finish the race
Predict how many cars will be classified as having completed the Grand Prix. You will score:
20 pts if can you predict the exact number of finishers.
10 pts if you are one out on your prediction for the number of finishers.
Minus 3 pts If you are outside of the scoring points above then you receive minus 3 points for each car you wrongly failed to predict will finish. For example, you predict that 20 cars will finish the race, but (according to the result) only 17 do so. You will score minus 9 pts (3 x -3)
The number of classified finishers will be determined by the official result published on the F1 website.
RED LIGHT 4: Predict whether or not a safety car will be deployed during the Grand Prix
If you think a Safety Car will be deployed at any time during the race, choose YES. If you do not, choose NO. You will score:
5 pts if you are correct
Minus 5 pts if incorrect
This prediction is based on the deployment of the full safety car and not the virtual safety car.
RED LIGHT 5: Predict the First Driver to Retire that started the race
10 pts if you are correct.
0 pts if you are incorrect.
NB - Should more than one driver retire at the same time due to a crash, then the driver that is deemed by Grand Prix Predict to have caused the accident will be "the first driver to retire"
Should a driver be disqualified pre, during or post-race this driver will not classified as the first retirement, but will be placed last. Should more than one driver be disqualified the final positions will be in order of disqualification. In the event of 2 drivers or more being disqualified at the same time the order will be decided by Grand Prix Predict.
Once you have completed all 5 red lights, PRESS SAVE. Good Luck!
