Your 2019 #CanadianGP Predictions: The Results

Your 2019 #CanadianGP Predictions: The Results

Before the 2019 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 BOTH MERCEDES FINISH ON THE PODIUM?

YOUR PREDICTION: YES

CORRECT ANSWER: NO

For the first time this year, and as only 21% of you predicted, there was only one Mercedes driver on the podium at the Canadian Grand Prix. Lewis Hamilton won the race following a controversial penalty for Sebastian Vettel, while Valtteri Bottas finished fourth having qualified down in sixth. 


2. WILL THE TRACK RECORD BE BROKEN?

YOUR PREDICTION: YES

CORRECT ANSWER: YES 

As 87% of you predicted, the track record was broken during qualifying on Saturday. Sebastian Vettel beat his previous record by 0.524 seconds. He and Lewis Hamilton were the only drivers to set lap times faster than last year’s pole time. 


3. WHERE WILL LANCE STROLL FINISH?

YOUR PREDICTION: 11TH OR LOWER

CORRECT ANSWER: 9th or 10th

Lance Stroll’s weekend wasn’t looking too good by Saturday evening. An engine blow up in the final practice session saw him miss out on vital running and qualifying only eighteenth. However, he turned it around, put a good race together and scored points; something just 17% of you thought he would do. It’s the third time he’s scored points this season, all three finishes being ninth place results. 





4. WILL KUBICA FINISH LAST?

YOUR PREDICTION: YES

CORRECT ANSWER: YES

The Williams driver did it again! For the sixth time in seven races, Robert Kubica finished last of the drivers still on the circuit at the end of the race. He finished two laps down on the leader, scoring his third consecutive eighteenth place finish. 


5. WILL ANY DRIVER RETIRE ON LAP 1?

YOUR PREDICTION: YES

CORRECT ANSWER: NO

All 20 drivers safely navigated the first lap of the 2019 Canadian Grand Prix. The first retirement came on the eighth lap, with Lando Norris coming to a halt with a broken car on the main straight.
