Where do you rank after the Belgian Grand Prix?

The Belgian Grand Prix is complete and Formula 1’s summer break has arrived, providing a well-earned rest for the drivers, teams and our Pit Wall Predictions players too.
Constantly changing conditions and little dry running meant it was a hard race to call and just 15% of players scored half marks or higher.
After the latest round, we are left with a three-way tie at the top of our global rankings, with the trio boasting 245 points each.
With 10 rounds left to go and 400 points up for grabs, we are set to see the 2022 winning points tally of 355 smashed.
But before we get too far ahead of ourselves, see how you got on in Spa by clicking the link below. Keep reading to see how your answers compared to other players and 'The Strategist'.

Q1: On which lap will Alex make his first stop?

Alex switched the soft tyres he started on for mediums on Lap 7, placing him well inside the Lap 1-10 option bracket.
Only 17% of players picked up five points on the opening question.

Q2: On which lap will Logan make his first stop?

Logan followed the same strategy as his teammate and pulled into the pits for his first stop on the following tour, placing him in the Lap 1-10 bracket.
Slightly more fans called this correctly, with one in five PWP players getting this right.

Q3: How many full Safety Car periods will there be?

Despite The Strategist's call that there would be one Safety Car period, Bernd Mayländer had a quiet afternoon and wasn’t called into action.
A mere 6% of players saw this coming, hats off to you all!

Q4: Which Williams Racing driver will pit first?

As has been the case more often than not in 2023, Alex was our first driver to stop. This was a big points earner with 69% getting it right.
One of those players was The Strategist, with what proved to be their only correct prediction.

Q5: What will Alex’s longest stint on the same set of tyres be?

Alex’s longest stint was his first spell on the medium compound, where he ran for 16 laps.
This placed him within the 11-20 laps bracket, an option selected by 54% of fans.

Q6: What will Logan’s longest stint on the same set of tyres be?

Like Alex, Logan also managed a longest stint of 16 laps, placing him within that same second option bracket.
Slightly fewer were correct on this one, 47% to be precise.

Q7: Which tyre will Alex end his race on?

Alex went on a late charge with soft tyres fitted, much to the delight of 8% of PWP players who called it right.

Q8: Which tyre will Logan end his race on?

As mentioned, Logan ran the same strategy as Alex during the Belgian Grand Prix so also ended the afternoon on soft tyres.
8% of players were spot on with their call on the final question,

The Strategist’s Score: 1/8

Oh dear, it was a tough week for our Grove Guru. Sharing their predictions so early in the week left them high and dry (ironically) and unable to react closer to lights out, a privilege our players have.
They’ve dropped down to P123 in the standings, with 195 points to their name.
