    Same here. Hamilton was my 3rd pick though, unfortunately. :/

    Nico Rosberg - 1st - 45 points
    Fernando Alonso - 5th - 39 points
    Louis Lewis Hamilton - RET (20th) - 24 points
    Bonus - 8 points

    Total - 116 points + CP

    Got to say I'm not disappointed, expected worse so I can't complain. Still, I bet somebody got a 1-2-3.

    Well, I got 93 points, which I am fairly happy with!
    Massa was mine... shame, I wanted to change to Alonso or Magnussen...

    Bad start with Massa and Hamilton in my team.... But a great race to watch, and that is most important ;)

    Also, the free pick of Hamilton again next weekend is quite nice. Otherwise I'd be quickly going through CPs.

    First year and first time trying this fantasy f1 out...and got 2/3 in the podium :)

    Hamilton-Retired :( (Had I chose Rosberg though...)
    Ricciardo-2nd :cool:
    Magnussen-3rd :)

    So how does that equate in terms of points?

    Edit: found the post with the point scoring system:

    Hamilton-24pts
    Ricciardo-42pts
    Magnussen-41pts

    Total = 107pts

    I think this is right as I chose the three right after qualifying

    Hamilton-RET, 24pts
    Button-4th, 40pts
    Alonso-5th, 39pts
    Bonus-8pts

    Total=111pts

    Not a good start if you ask me.

    But yeah same here for 8pts, but then changed Alo for Hulk after FP2 but then changed back to Alo just before FP3!

    Lost out on 2bonus points but I can just about live with that for the time being!

    Looks like my score is going to improve with Danny Ricardo being disqualified! :)

    Wait... I get 24 for a retired driver?? And as much as my score will get better with Ricciardo being DQ'd, I'd be gutted if he is... Such a nice person!

    I don't think RET is a classification, so no points for the 8 drivers that DNFed....I believe.

    Alonso 39 and pre P1 8 points = a dismal start to 2014.

    I'm still new to all this, so I need to read up the rules properly. But if I read right I now get a Consecutive pick for Nico, right?

    When you select the winner yes you receive a CP so your free to use that when you want.

    Hmmm... Given the class of Magnussen, I am thinking about picking Magnussen, Hamilton and Alonso (because he is good at Sepang)

    So glad that so many people picked Hamilton. Means I don't start out at the very bottom.

    Jesus Christ, why'd I do that? :banghead:

    EDIT: Do we recalculate everything if the Red Bull appeal is successful?
