Castrol EDGE GP Predictor: Vettel 'favourite' for Malaysia
|Friday, March 22nd 2013, 15:10 GMT|
Sebastian Vettel is the overwhelming favourite to win the Malaysian Grand Prix, according to players of the Castrol EDGE Grand Prix Predictor.
The world champion missed out on victory from pole position in Australia last weekend, but at the time of writing, 51 per cent of the game's players had picked him to win, with a further 29 per cent opting for Ferrari's Fernando Alonso.
Melbourne winner Kimi Raikkonen is only considered third favourite to stand on the top step at Sepang on Sunday, and gets only eight per cent of the vote.
The game's ambassador, Karun Chandhok agrees that Vettel is still the best bet for race victory: "I think we need to consider what happened on Friday in Melbourne, where it was warm and the Red Bulls looked mighty.
"In Sepang, it's either going to be sunny and hot or a monsoon storm so my bet would be on a Red Bull victory."
The Grand Prix Predictor allows players to compete for prizes by forecasting the top 10 in every grand prix during 2013.
The ultimate prize this year is a trip for two to next year's Monaco Grand Prix, and there will be race-by-race prizes like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 available to the player who scores the highest individual race score.
Registering a team in the game is free, and predictions for each race can be changed up to five minutes before qualifying that weekend.
