It was a case of Russian roulette in the last round of the Vital F1 Prediction Competition.
With entrants predicting who would finish 11th place and lower, the majority of the field failed to score in Sochi.
The competition leader after China nickynutjob, failed to score a single point in Russia, whilst second placed cheekycherry only scored 12 points.
Flick who was thirteenth after the opening three races, took their first race win and climbed up to fourth, taking advantage of many users failing to score.

Race weekend predictions must be made before Qualifying starts.
* You cannot alter your prediction once it is made (first prediction will be used).
Points available for each race are clearly stated on each race thread.
The points will be awarded on the ‘cross the line’ unofficial results (not classified results), to avoid complicating the points by having to amend them following post-race time penalties and/or disqualifications.
For some races we will not just be predicting 1st – 10th place, but for some races it will be 4th-13th or 10th-19th etc [with all drivers who finish outside of the stated points places scoring zero].
To enable people to enter while they are away for any period of time, we have already selected what to predict for each race in advance, so if you wish to predict a couple of races at a time, or if you’re brave and want to predict the whole season from the start, you can!

Standings and scoring
Standings are decided in points order.
If points are level, the position is settled on who has the most ‘race wins’. A ‘race win’ is awarded to the user who outscored all the other entries for that race (in the case of a draw, all drawn users will receive a ‘race win’).
If points are still level, the position is given to the user who entered the game first.
