The final Grand Prix of 2011 is upon us and so far only seven drivers have stood on the podium this year, tying the record for the lowest number ever.

They are Sebastian Vettel, Mark Webber, Jenson Button, Lewis Hamilton, Fernando Alonso, Vitaly Petrov and Nick Heidfeld.

Amazingly neither of the Mercedes drivers have been up there and nor has Felipe Massa.

Will that still be the case on Sunday or will one of those faces or a new face appear on the podium, especially is we get one of those rain affected Brazilian classics?

And what does it say about the competitive balance within F1 that the top five drivers have so dominated the season?

As a final competition of the season, we are asking you to predict the three names who will be standing on the podium on Sunday.

The first three correct answers – posted in the comments section below before 2pm Brazil time on Sunday when the race starts – will win a signed copy of the JA on F1 2011 season review book “Vettel Steals the Show”.

The book is a 240 page large format softback which looks back at the stories of the season and analyses the races in detail. Signed copies can be bought from this site for £9-99.

The competition is open to anyone anywhere in the world to enter. But you can only enter once!!

    James, Do you think that the incredible reliability the top cars have had has had a factor in this? Tie this to the fact the best cars have the best drivers as well and this is the result. I do find it surprising the the mercs have not made it on to the podium once!

    in alphabetical order as could go anyway tomorrow

    button
    hamilton
    vettel

    I think RB and McL will have something in hand over Ferrari over the race distance and Webber hasn’t been on it this year so seems a safe bet to have these three on the podium. Until i just jinxed them by saying that however…

    Its probably going to be
    1 – Vettel
    2 – Lewis,
    3 – Webber.

    But what I’d really like to see is s something crazy like:

    1 – Kovalainen,
    2 – di Resta,
    3 – Schumacher

    Then it would be the most interesting one of the year – Can’t see it happening though.

    Hopefully it rains so Fernando wins, but if it doesn’t, the above answer is the correct finishing order.

    Its going to be a wet race!
    Hamilton will do a Hamilton [probably with Massa]
    Schui will prevail in a better balanced Mercedes and show he can stillget onto the podium.
    But Webber will hang in there for 2nd while Vettel comes to grief somewhere along the way.
    Naturally, smooth driving Button, will handle the rain very well and make it to the checked flag first.

    just an observation: I am surprised that more people havnt got Button in their list – more seem to think Hamilton will do better. We know how well Button has performed in the wet conditions this season.

    Also, wouldnt be surprised to see a one M. Schumacher on the podium.

    Vettel’s under pressure maybe an enforced error in the wet will prevent a podium for him, but it’s definately going to rain. – Pure guesswork:-

    1 Hamilton

    Guys, why are people repeating others’ answers? Didn’t James say ‘the first three correct answers’ will win his book? Hopefully I’m not misunderstanding something here! Well, since my top choices have already been taken I’m gonna go for:
    1. Button
    2. Vettel
    3. Sutil

    Thanks James for another great competition!

    [Reply]

    Rubinho's Keyfob Reply:

    Indeed. What’s the point of saying “The competition is open to anyone anywhere in the world to enter.” and then limit it to the _first_ 3 right answers?

    Anyone not in the right timezone to be awake enough answer with an obvious 3-of-5 reply in the first 10 minutes of the competition is clearly not going to win!

    A lottery of all correct answers out of a hat would be more appropriate for an international competition.

    Anyway, assuming the rules stay as they are I may as well go out on a limb:

    Barrichello, Schumacher, Hamilton.

    If the rules change to a lottery:

    Hamilton, Schumacher, Barrichello.

    Hey, it’s all a bit of fun ;)

    Ohm Reply:

    Lol nice pick mate, I’d love to see Barichello on the podium with Schumacher, maybe even throw Kobayashi in there too! :P

    Yeah I agree, I think all correct answers should be combined then randomly picked instead but I think it’s too late for James to change it now, maybe for the next competition ;) but….! If that does change, my first choice answer would be:
    1. Button
    2. Vettel
    3. Alonso

    James, two things that would be brilliant for your site…

    Get the developer to put the comments box immediately after the end of the article… It’s a pain to have to scroll down to tO the bottom of the page like that.

    A castrol predictor type fantasy f1 game…. Have been using the castrol one this year and found it brilliant fun for spicing up race weekends

    I’m playing the team order card and Massa to shine during the race assuming rain at some point during the race as he had a strong drive in Canada.

    Hidesight is 100% accurate.

    Webber to win, cos vettel has an issue.

    Vettel to be second, even without all his gears

    Button to be third, giving one back to Alonso who showed him by overtaking him round the outsdide. Stunning move.
