With three rounds still to go in the 2017 Formula One season, Paul continues to absolutely trounce his fellow FBC staffers, very nearly already surpassing Grace’s championship winning points total for the entirety of last year.
In Austin, Paul picked up the highest number of staff points by correctly choosing Hamilton and Vettel’s finishing position, as well as Verstappen and Bottas. Todd also picked up the top two finishers to remain in second position, but Tom correctly picked the full podium, which helped him move up to just two points out of second spot. That broke up the tie he was in with Andrew, who scored ten points with LewHam and Ocon back in sixth.
Grace picked up thirteen points herself thanks to Hamilton, Verstappen and Ocon. Though she’s still in seventh position, she’s now just six back of Tony and Dave, who are tied for fifth. Thanks to the stewards, those two picked up three points for Max in fourth, as did Johnpierre.
The post race shake up ensured that all staffers would score this weekend. Now, with less than a week before the next race in Mexico, the staffers need to decide if any of them are brave enough to continue hoping for a Ferrari resurgence. For some, a Vettel pick and win may be the only way to make up lost ground!
