Did you nail the strategy on Pit Wall Predictions?

Suzuka brought rain showers which in turn delivered a tough race to call correctly – not just for those on the pit wall, but also for our Pit Wall Predictions players.
One player kept their cool to deliver a top score for the Japanese Grand Prix round of 35 points out of a possible 40 – great effort!
Find out how you got on as we reflect on Suzuka.

Japanese GP results

Sadly for Alex, his race was over just after it had begun, meaning he did not make a pit stop, something that just 1% of players foresaw.
Nicky made his first tyre change under the early red flag, meaning his first pit stop was undertaken within 10 laps which 20% called correctly.
A further 31% would nail the position from which Nicky made our first stop – our Canadian was P15 when the red flag was flown. As Nicky was our sole runner by this stage, 66% of players earned points for saying he would be the first Williams driver to stop.
In total we made two pit stops during the Grand Prix – the first under the red flag and the second being the excellent call to bring Nicky in to put on the intermediates and 25% of players correctly predicted the total.
There were two periods behind the Safety Car and 27% of our fans picked up points here.
Finally, both of our drivers’ races ended on intermediate tyres, with 28% getting this right for Alex and 29% spot on for Nicky.
There are four rounds left to go in 2022 leaving us with 160 points to play for – will you finish your campaign on a high? Our United States Grand Prix round will go live on Friday afternoon (BST).
