Register Now! Submit Your Picks

Submitting a pick :

A player can submit a pick for any race any time as long as the pick is submitted prior to midnight on the first practice day. This is usually on the Friday preceding the race although practice for Monaco starts on Thursday. No picks will be accepted if sent after midnight of the first day of practice of a Grand Prix weekend. 

In order to submit your picks, you must first register. Once registered, you can submit your pick at the 10 'n' Pole Submit page. If you have difficulties using that page then you can try the alternate Submit page. If that still fails, you can email your picks to [email protected]. You must enter in the email exactly the same details required as on the web pages.

Picks may be carried over for any number of races.

If you fail to send in a pick for a race, or if your pick arrives too late to be counted, your pick for the previous race will be used again, your pick will be carried for every race until you put in another pick (e.g., if you fail to enter a pick for race #3, race #2's pick will be used for race#3 and all the subsequent races you fail to send in a pick for).

If a driver you pick is replaced by the team temporarily due to injury or sickness, your score will be based on the result of the replacement driver. If the replacement is permanent, then you must change your picks.

The top 5 positions in Qualifying are determined from the official grid line-up by the FIA taking into account any penalties applied. As an example, if Lucas di Grassi sets the fastest time in Qualifying but is penalised 10 places due to an engine failure in practice he will not be considered the Pole setter and those picking him will score zero for that pick. The 2nd fastest car in Qualifying (which will start from Pole in this case assuming this car is not penalised) will be considered the Pole setter in the competition.

Scoring :

You score points for each race based on how well your picks match the actual race results. If a race result is not confirmed by the FIA due to a protest or infringement. The scoring for that race will be delayed until a result is confirmed by the FIA.

For each driver that you picked, you score points based on where the driver finished with bonus points if you predicted the exact position. The points are awarded as follows :

1st 10
3rd 8
6th 5
11th and beyond0

2 bonus points will be awarded if you pick the exact position. If you don't pick the exact finishing position but they still finish in the top 10 then you will score the normal awarded points if the actual position is lower than the predicted position otherwise points for the predicted position will be used.

A Tie:
If two or more players top score in a round, the player who submitted their final picks the earliest for the round is declared the winner. Players rolling their picks from previous rounds will only be considered for a prize if all the top scorers have rolled their picks. In that case the winner is the player who submitted picks for the nearest round to the round played and if there are two or more players in that situation, then the earliest final pick for that round wins.

Some examples:

You picked Petrov to finish 1st and he finished :

PositionYou Score
1st 10+2= 12
3rd 8
6th 5

You picked Kobayashi to finish 2nd and he finished :

PositionYou Score
1st 9 - because you didn't pick him any higher than 2nd
2nd 9+2 = 11
4th 7
7th 4

You picked Hulkenburg to finish 3rd and he finished :

PositionYou Score
1st 8 - because you didn't pick him any higher than 3rd
2nd8- because you didn't pick him any higher than 3rd
3rd 8+2 = 10
5th 6



For Pole position, if the driver you pick is among the top 5 fastest drivers in qualifying, you'll score :

PositionYou Score
1st 6

Additional bonus points are awarded if your pick contains 6 or more drivers who actually finish in the top 10 (regardless of the order) as follows:

6 drivers in the top 10 : 2 bonus points
7 drivers in the top 10 : 4 bonus points
8 drivers in the top 10 : 6 bonus points
9 drivers in the top 10 : 10 bonus points
10 drivers in the top 10 : 16 bonus points

Second: Nico Hulkenburg
Third: Jaime Alguersuari
Fourth: Jose Maria Lopez
Fifth: Bruno Senna
Sixth: Kamui Kobayashi
Seventh: Lucas di Grassi
Timo Glock
Vetaly Petrov
Sebastien Buemi

Seventh: Pedro de la Rosa
Eighth: Kamui Kobayashi

Vetaly Petrov2 + 2 bonus = 4 Jim scores 4 points (2 for the position plus 2 bonus points) as he predicted that Petrov would finish in 9th place and that is exactly where he finished.
Sebastien Buemi 1Even though Buemi finished in 6th, Jim would only receive points for the position he predicted Buemi to finish in (and not higher) which was 10th so he scores 1 point.
Jose Maria Lopez 1  for poleJim predicted Lopez to be on pole but he only managed fifth on the grid and therefore scored 1 point.
Additional Points6 8 drivers in the top 10

12+11+10+9+8+7+6+5+4+3 for the top 10 in exactly the order they finished + 
6 for Pole + 
16 for having all 10 drivers picked in the top 10
Total = 97
