British GP: GP Predictor players not expecting home success

The duo, neither of whom has won a grand prix yet in 2013, have convinced only 11 per cent of players between them that they can take their first victory of the year on home soil.

Last year's British Grand Prix winner Fernando Alonso starts the weekend as favourite, with 41 per cent of the vote, having won twice this year for Ferrari, while world championship leader and Canada victor Sebastian Vettel has convinced 31 per cent of players that he will be the man to beat on Sunday.

It's easy to play the grand prix predictor. Just go to www.gppredictor.com, or search out the Facebook app, sign up or sign in, predict the top 10 finishers in the grand prix and more besides and prove your knowledge of F1.

It's free, simple and you could win a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 if you score the most points of all on a race weekend.
