Your 2018 #CanadianGP Predictions: The Results

Your 2018 #CanadianGP Predictions: The Results

Before the 2018 Canadian Grand Prix weekend began, I posted five prediction polls on the Lights Out twitter account. How many of the questions did you get right? Find out below!


1. Will Max Verstappen have a clean weekend?

YOUR PREDICTION: NO

CORRECT ANSWER: YES

It was a close result in our poll, but Max Verstappen finally had his first clean weekend of the season in Canada. The Dutchman encountered mechanical damage on his front wing during Friday Practice, but that was the only drama of his trip to Montreal. He qualified third and maintained his position in the race. 


2. How many drivers will crash at the Wall of Champions?

YOUR PREDICTION: TWO

CORRECT ANSWER: ONE

42% of you predicted two drivers would clatter into the infamous Wall of Champions over the weekend. There was only one collision with the wall though, and that was by Canadian Lance Stroll, who made a mess of the final turn in Free Practice 1. 


3. Will Lewis Hamilton be on pole?

YOUR PREDICTION: YES

CORRECT ANSWER: NO

59% of you thought Lewis Hamilton would take a fourth consecutive pole and beat Michael Schumacher’s record of six poles at the track. Instead, it was Sebastian Vettel who took his fourth pole at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve while Hamilton could only manage fourth on the grid. It was the first time Hamilton hasn’t started from the front row at this track since 2011. 





4. Will Romain Grosjean score a point?

YOUR PREDICTION: NO

CORRECT ANSWER: NO

63% of you correctly predicted that Romain Grosjean would still be point-less as he left Montreal. After hitting a groundhog on Friday, the Frenchman suffered an engine failure in Qualifying and was forced to start from the back of the grid. He made up seven places to finish in twelfth, but outside of the points. 


5. Where will Lance Stroll finish?

YOUR PREDICTION: 11th to 15th

CORRECT ANSWER: 16th to 20th or DNF

After scoring the first points of his F1 career here last year, Lance Stroll had a weekend to forget at his home event this season. He collided with Brendon Hartley on the first lap and failed to finish a race for the first time in 2018.
