We had a very healthy 626 entries for this weekend’s competition to predict the gap in qualifying between Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso.

The winner was Lewis, entry number 65, who predicted 0.49s in Vettel’s favour. The actual gap was 0.493s. So congratulations to Lewis, whose email address indicates he is from India.

A signed and personalised copy of the new book “JA on F1 2012- The Year of Living Dangerously” will be sent out to him when it is published on December 7th.

The 248 page large format paperback book tells all the inside stories of the 2012 season. It is a limited-edition collectable and is priced at £10-99. Signed copies are available to buy from this site by clicking on the cover image below or at this link JA on F1 2012 Book

    wow.I got lucky. Thanks, feels good. Hope today’s race and championship will be won on the track with the drivers showing they understand that courtesy and class is as much a mark of a gentleman as courage and winning.

    Congratulations Lewis! Your namesake on the cover. How apropos. Your sentiments re: courtesy, class & gentleman are taken to heart by, at least, this poster.
