Verstappen's Austria win lands 104,271/1 prediction!

Verstappen's Austria win lands 104,271/1 prediction!

An F1 Play gamer will be going to the United States Grand Prix in Austin, Texas later this season after successfully picking a full house of predictions at last weekend’s Austrian GP.

Bart Altenburg, who lives in The Netherlands, survived an anxious three hour wait while FIA stewards deliberated over the move that saw Max Verstappen pass Charles Leclerc with two laps remaining to win a thrilling race.

"I must admit my hands were shaking and there might have had a little tear in my eye when Max passed Leclerc," said a thrilled Bart. "I told my friends on WhatsApp that I thought I had quite a few answers correct, I didn't actually realise that I had all the questions correct!"

Bart would have had odds of 104,271/1 with his pre-race selection.

With no safety car deployed and all drivers finishing, the outcome was in doubt right up until the chequered flag. And as Verstappen crossed the line in first place, over 90% of gamers immediately dropped out of contention. A staggering 51% had predicted a win for second placed Leclerc and 31% had chosen Lewis Hamilton who finished 5th.

Bart first played F1 Play two races ago for the Canadian GP and his previous high score was just three correct answers.

Here's what he guessed:

1st Place: Max Verstappen
2nd Place: Charles Leclerc
3rd Place: Valtteri Bottas
Fastest Lap: Max Verstappen
First in Group 1: Lando Norris
First in Group 2: Antonio Giovinazzi
First to retire: Nobody
Total finishers: 20
Safety Car: No
Winning Margin: 2.501-7.500
