Results – Top Tens
An incident packed Formula One race that provided a win for Räikkönen after Hamilton’s McLaren conked out. Some argy-bargy caused by Perez led to contact that took out Grosjean (19th) and Webber (20th). After a fuel pump failure, Hamilton ended up 21st. Hulkenberg had terminal damage from contact with Force India team-mate, di Resta, as well as Senna, at the very first corner (24th).
Jimmie Johnson again took the pole and victory, this time after a hard battle with Keselowski. Gordon had made his way up to second at one stage of the race, but a green-flag stop for a puncture, and later contact with Kahne requiring repairs, left Jeff back in 14th. Hamlin had a quiet race finishing on the lead lap in 20th.

Non-entries get 203 according to the 90% rule. The count-back tie-breaker rule does apply, with iomracer taking second, both he and Chris having two winning, two second-placed, and one third-placed picks, but iomracer had a fourth-placed pick.
Congratulations to RubberGoat on his sixth win of the season, with his strategy of picking the three NASCAR drivers that were doing best in the Chase points paying off with a strong victory.
All the NASCAR picks made finished top-twenty, which is more than can be said for the Formula One picks. Indeed, fifty-three selections were made from F1, scoring an average of 27·3 TMRG points, whilst the twenty-seven Sprint Cup selections returned an average of 31·5.
No movement this week, with only Chris and Gavin out-scoring the next player up. Only three weeks left with three, two and one events.
· MotoGP – Valencia, Spain
· WRC – Catalunya, Spain
