Default Warping mdf-panel

All new to temperapainting I thought I might as well just start out with a 80x100 cm panel ...
To prevent warping I screwed stretcher bars onto the panel (which is 12 mm thick) and put a few layers of gesso on the back, but not as many as on the front. But it didn't help - it warps about 1 cm.
Is there a way to rescue this, for instance by applying more gesso coats to the back, or is it a lost cause? (Damn, that panel took ages to prepare!)
