So, a three week gap to post this poll and I leave it until the day before. Such is life.

A lot of people thought China might be a wet one. What does everyone's forecasts say now I wonder...? Here are the scores on the doors after Malaysia.

How do you score points?

[TR]Each race will be declared A, B, C or D and the number of points awarded for each outcome is shown in the table above.

If you guess predict correctly with both your first and second guesses , your points are doubled. For example, you say it's going to be dry in Bahrain and you stick with that just before the race, you score 4 points.

If you twist and change your mind with your second guess and get it right the second time, you get the points for the correct answer. So, if you say now that it's going to be B, 'threatening', in Britain, but change your mind to A and it is dry, you score 2 points.

If you twist and change your mind with your second guess and get it right first time, but wrong the second time, you lose two points. For example, if you say now that it's going to be C, 'varied', in Belgium, but change your mind to A but it turns out to be varied after all, you lose 2 points.

If neither guess is right you score 0.

Because (amusingly), he said C for Malaysia before the season, then changed his mind for a D.

Sticking with C would have had him up there with Rasp... :snigger:

So Slyboogy , you're taking an E are you? No wonder you get funny dreams! LOL

So you lose points for changing? I thought it just gave you another chance to get points although halfed.

Silly system, and I'm the one that's taking 'E's' :p

Not quite, you lose points for changing when you would have got it right by sticking.

You don't lose points if you change and would have been wrong with your first guess. Keep up! :rolleyes:

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

I was going to choose A but the deadlines past!

When is the deadline by the way? Doesn't say in the thread.

My vote should get counted.
