It’s been great fun and we had over 300 people contributing ideas as to how close Giancarlo Fisichella would get to Kimi Raikkonen in qualifying for his Ferrari debut at Monza.
Thanks to everyone who took part and I’m sure we will do this again soon.
The prize is a signed copy of my biography of Michael Schumacher, The Edge of Greatness.
I’m very proud to say that we had lots of really good estimates with over 30 comments being within five hundredths of a second – it’s even more competitive than the F1 grid itself! It shows that we have a very knowledgeable and well informed readership here.
Pujan was close with 0.470s, Ronnie Mirza guessed 0.454, Raunaq went for 0.487, Juan had 0.486, Roberto 0.485, as did EGC.
The actual figure was 0.475s and the winner, I believe, is Richard Dreyer, comment number 265, who guessed 0.478s.
If he would email his address to firstname.lastname@example.org I will make sure that a signed copy of the book gets to him. Well done, Richard!
