    Welcome to the 2010 fantasy Formula 1 season on :gtplanet:

    2010 Formula 1 Season

    Next Race:
    Season Over

    First, this is a much simpler fantasy league than the one GilesGuthrie ran. It will simply be picking who you think will win each week. I'm choosing to do it this way since I basically have it streamlined, as well as my lack of experience using budget setups. I think it will also bring more excitement to watching the race as you will be watching the whole field instead of just the first couple cars.

    Rules:
    • Each participant must pick 3 drivers each week.
    • You cannot select a driver more than 1 week in a row, this will hopefully make it more interesting(If you do select a driver 2 weeks in a row you won't get any points for that driver)
    • Your picks must be PM'd to me by the drop of the green flag on race day. You can do this easily by clicking here.
    • Please don't post your picks until after the green flag drops. I will post my picks just so there are no issues with my picks.
    • In the event of a tie the person with the most wins will be placed ahead
    • If you want to discuss race results please use spoiler tags since people see the race at different times.
    • Please use the following format when submitting picks.
      Subject Title: Fantasy F1 Round # Picks
      Driver 1
      Driver 2
      Driver 3

    Points:

    We will be using the standard FIA F1 points system.
    1. 25
    2. 18
    3. 15
    4. 12
    5. 10
    6. 8
    7. 6
    8. 4
    9. 2
    10. 1
      1-2-3= 15 bonus points

      Max=73

    Please don't post your picks until after the green flag drops
    .

    These two rules seem to contradict each other:confused:

    Could you post the format of the PM you wish to recieve? Then it might be a bit easier for you to go through them all if they are all in the same or similar format.
    Are we predicting pole position, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and fastest lap or are we just telling you 3 drivers?

    Its an irrelevant stat more like, it doesn't mean anything. The circumstances of most fastest laps mean its rarely the fastest driver of the race who sets it, its more likely to be the driver who happened to be on the lightest fuel load, freshest tyres and best track conditions. Not to mention rarely does any driver intentionally set the fastest lap (as its worth nothing).

    This.

    It works best this way since you will have to decide who to pick on your own instead of just copying someone elses picks.

    I also won't read the PM's until after the race is over.

    Didn't even realize that. Maybe you shouldn't have grouped them with the NASCAR picks.(actually forgot you did until you posted just now)

    Anyways, I expect that most of the picks are going to be similar for the first week, next race will be much more interesting.

    I'm very happy with the turnout, looks like this will be very competitive.

    Congrats to ROAD_DOGG33J for scoring the most points.

    Next race is in Australia in a couple weeks, remember you can't pick any drivers you picked this week.

    Well i think i did well, could have been much better for myself and Justin if a certain exhaust system didn't fail.

    Well done Road Doggy-Dog

    I just picked the top 3 qualifiers. I knew they were a good bet for finishing about where they started.

    Picking for the next race should be interesting :dopey:
