    Since it's going to be the very first time F1 visits the Circuit of the Americas track, I thought I'd create a little game for fun. The challenge is to make an estimate of the exact pole position time that will be driven by whoever wins the qualifying session. I'm talking about the fastest Q3 time, that's when the fastest times of the weekend are driven.

    After 45 minutes of gathering statistics and calculating, here is my final prediction:
    The pole position time will be a 1:38.696

    I'm not letting loose which data I used or how I found it.. it's each to their own in this game :D I'm really looking forward to what times you predict and how much it deviates from others.

    There's just one rule: you can make only one prediction.

    So.. are you up for the challenge? Then look up all the statistics you need and grab your calculator :) Or if you don't have time, simply take a wild guess :p

    1.37 is what Mercedes are thinking it will be for Qualifying.

    Quite an optimistic guess compared to others, but who knows :)

    Weather forecast is overcast conditions, but perhaps rain will indeed affect qualifying. We'll see! Keep the laptimes coming :thumbsup:

    By the looks of it times are going to be a lot faster than some of us predicted. Eager to see who guessed the closest to the actual pole time :)

    I think i´m gonna go with around....1,35.657 somewhere around there ;)

    Pretty off there with Mercedes but i guess the track just kept coming to them which nobody really could foresee i guess.
