William Hill's Grand Prix-dict the Podium Competition

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Prix-dict the Podium competition has been suspended. More news as to when/if it returns and prize distribution will follow.

Enjoy the thrill of the 2010 Formula 1 season and win free bets by entering our Grand Prix-diction competition.

With prize pool of £1,500.00 up for grabs, all we're asking is for you to predict the podium in each of this year's F1 Grands Prix. Correctly pick the drivers that finish first, second and third and you'll get their classification points to add to your total if they finish in the position you predicted: 25 for 1st, 18 for 2nd and 15 for 3rd. Get the most points and you could win a free bet.

The competition lasts all season long and your points will be totted up. If you're at the top of the leaderboard when the competition finishes in November after the Abu Dhabi GP you'll win the first prize of £250.00 in free bets but there are free bet prizes to be won right down to 10th position. (Prize table)

But you don't have to wait that long to be a winner as we're also giving away a £25.00 free bet to the entry that gets the points each leg. In the event of a tie an entry will be drawn at random from all the winning entries.

What do I have to do?

Entering the competition is simple:

  • Click the link in the table above to go to the competition entry page.
  • Pick the three drivers you think will finish in each of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd places.
  • Give us a few details so we can track your entry.
  • Ensure you count is deemed active (see below)

You must pick three different drivers in each of the places. Any entries with duplicated drivers will be voided and no points will be awarded. The points you receive will be added up and go on our leaderboard.

An account is active, and therefore an entry will qualify, if there has been sports betting activity of at least £5.00 cumulative stakes over the seven days leading up to the race.

Each leg's entry page will be available from the Wednesday before the race, at the latest, and you have until the official start time of the main race to enter.
