I'm happy with the result! Well done everybody! Time to truly unleash my sense of humour next year. Might have to run a caption or two past @Touring Mars to ensure AUP compliancy :lol:

Happy New Year everybody

F1 Caption Game rules 2021.
COMPETITION RULES
Captions and Images


  • All captions must be your own work. Captions that are deemed too similar to existing submitted captions may be disqualified.
  • If you decide to change or submit a new caption, you must name your new caption as "FINAL ENTRY". This cannot be changed once denoted. If multiple captions are submitted without any being noted as final entry, your first submission will be put forward for voting.
  • Captions must be in text format only. Weblinks can be included as part of a sentence, but captions must include some text and may not simply be a link to a picture.
  • All captions must comply with the forum rules. Captions deemed to be inappropriate e.g. explicit sexual references, offensive comments etc. may be disqualified.
  • All moderation staff can delete any posts for any reason. All entries are subject to approval by the moderation staff and all moderating decisions are final.
  • The winner of each Round will be allowed to select an image for a future round. Due to short turnaround between the ever-expanding calendar, it won't be possible to get the winner to find suitable pictures in a reasonably short time. As such, if you win a round, feel free to submit photos to the moderator at a future round before it is updated. It is the moderator's discretion as to whether that photo will be used or not.
  • Images submitted by Round Winners must be of reasonable size and quality and are subject to approval by the moderation team i.e. unsuitable images e.g. images depicting accidents resulting in injury or other inappropriate material will not be used.
  • Round Winners who select an image for the subsequent round must wait at least 3 hours before submitting a caption for their own picture. Captions posted earlier than this will not be admitted to the poll.

Voting

  • Each round, captions will be gathered and posted in the voting thread (see below) and subjected to a public vote. Anyone is allowed to vote, but those who have entered a round must vote in that round or they will not score any points for however many votes they gain, and may not vote for their own caption. Captions voted for by their authors will be disqualified. Repeat offenders will be banned from the thread.
  • You have three votes and you can either split your votes 2-1, or give three captions one vote each. You must use all three votes.
  • Each caption will be assigned a letter code, and votes should be cast as follows:


    A - 1
    B - 1
    C - 1

    or

    A - 2
    B - 1


Scoring
Points are awarded to the captions that receive the most votes in the voting round. There are ten scoring positions:

1st - 25 points
2nd - 18 points
3rd - 15 points
4th - 12 points
5th - 10 points
6th - 8 points
7th - 6 points
8th - 4 points
9th - 2 points
10th - 1 point

In the event of a tie for any position, points are averaged and shared (rounding down where necessary), e.g. two people tied for 4th will both receive 11 pts ((12+10)/2); 3 people tied for 1st will receive 19 pts ((25+18+15)/3) etc.

In the event of tied scores in the final standings, the person with the most "overall wins" will be awarded the title. Shared wins will be counted second.

Seb: So a hundred says the Russian boy will get his foot in way too deep around here, and then just vector himself off in vaguely that direction. Can you check the odds on that?

The FIA is launching a full investigation into emerging news of a bullying clique in the paddock, believed to be either two high school age girls or Ocon and Stroll.

Needless to say, both drivers were highly amused to see that someone at Mclaren actually did attempt to bring back the "Size Zero" packaging.
