You're right. I was looking at the wrong chart on the F1 site. Alonso had most with 5.

Thanks Mike. Just goes to show you shouldn't tinker with your selections too much.

Last question. Why is the massiv so way behind this year? Do they get the extra bonus points each race? I would have expected it higher up.

Interesting that, I was wondering the same. As the Massiv is the average (median? mean?) of all our forecasts I suppose it should end up somewhere in the middle of the rankings, but my statistics lessons were something like 40 years ago. Do we have any statisticians on this thread who could provide an answer? Last years result with Massiv second in the lists may have been a fluke or maybe last years results were more predictable?
As they say in philosophy exams, discuss.

Theoretically the massive should do pretty well as they are picking the "favourite" for the race, so should be very close to the top. If they aren't close, it means that either it was a very unpredictable year, or people were making a lot of random picks! Either way, I rock

Yep, they can't get an early bonus as the last prediction always comes in late. I guess technically they should also lose 5 points if anyone does that week but as it's a Mike invention he brought the rules.

Mark Webber drove final four races with broken shoulder
By Andrew Benson

Red Bull's Mark Webber was driving with a broken shoulder for the final four races of the season, it has emerged.

The period coincides with a dip in form in which Webber lost his championship lead and then the title, which went to his team-mate Sebastian Vettel.

The Australian has revealed the injury, sustained in a mountain bike accident, in his new book, which has just been published in Australia.

Webber is refusing to blame the injury for his failure to win the title.

He also kept it secret from his team boss Christian Horner, only telling his physio Roger Cleary and F1's chief medical officer Gary Hartstein.

Webber sustained the injury after the Singapore Grand Prix.

The fracture was quite fine and could not be treated. Webber had cortisone injections before the races in Japan and Korea to dull the pain.

It is the second time in a little less than two years that Webber has suffered an injury while out training on a mountain bike.

In November 2008 he was hit by a car while taking part in his own adventure challenge in Tasmania and suffered a major fracture of his right leg as well as a broken shoulder.

On that occasion, he also kept the shoulder injury from his team and the public.

Webber says in his book, 'Up Front - 2010, A Season To Remember': "On the Sunday morning before (the Japanese Grand Prix at) Suzuka, I got on a mountain bike for the first time since my accident in Tasmania at the end of 2008.

"I was riding with a great friend of mine. Suddenly, he crashed right in front of me an I had nowhere to go but straight through the ears of the horse!

"I suffered what they call a skier's fracture to my right shoulder.

"Suzuka is a brutal track so it was a blessing that the Japanese weather gave me an enforced rest day on the Saturday (when qualifying was rained off), and a pre-race injection helped, too.

"In the end, we got through the weekend all right."

At the time of his latest accident, Webber was leading the world championship by 11 points from Ferrari's Fernando Alonso and was 21 ahead of Vettel.

He finished second to Vettel in Japan, where the German was only 0.07 seconds faster in qualifying.

But Webber's title hopes took a major hit at the subsequent race in Korea, when he crashed on the second racing lap. Alonso won the race, which leapfrogged him over Webber in the championship and into an 11-point lead.

Webber then finished second to Vettel in Brazil before losing any hope of regaining the lead with an uncompetitive performance at the final race in Abu Dhabi.

A photograph of Bernie Ecclestone's injuries after he was brutally mugged for his watch is being used in an advert for its manufacturers.

The image shows the Formula 1 tycoon sporting a bruised face including a vicious black eye and a heavily swollen cheek.

Obviously relates to the future, rather than 2010, but the changes for the next few years look set to make F1 quite a different sort of place (particularly in terms of the sound - 1.6l 4 cylinder turbos revving up to 10,000rpm, rather than 2.4l V8s getting up to 18,000rpm)
