"3 point bonus for picking the podium in order (1, 2, 3)"

Literally impossible as the same 2 teams dominate top 5 and very rarely do we get 3 drivers from 3 teams on the podium....did anyone ever pick this please???

I'd have to check, but it IS possible. It is meant to be difficult.

After a quick check, I find that Fifiona81 received the full 3 bonus points for last year's British GP. It is possible wink

In 2019, 3 point bonuses were awarded for Monaco (Fifiona81), Hungary (gtho4, srini701) and Abu Dhabi (PaulE). Not only possible, but you have benefited smile
