    Basic Rules
    • You must be a current member of :gtplanet:
    • You must select 3 drivers each week you choose to participate.
    • You must use the pick form to submit your picks. Once you submit your picks you will be able to view all submitted picks. If you would like to change your picks, just re-submit them, the picks closest to the deadline will be used.
      You do not need to sign up for anything additional to submit picks
    • Picks must be submitted one hour prior to the scheduled start time. If a race gets postponed the deadline for picks will be moved to one hour before the new start time.
    • Each participant will receive 6 Consecutive Picks at the beginning of the season, these allow you to pick a driver in consecutive races up to 6 times throughout the season.
    • You cannot select a driver more than one race in a row, in the event you do and have no Consecutive Picks left you will not receive points for that driver.
    • In the event you don't submit picks and have 3 or more Consecutive Picks left the drivers from the previous week will be used. If you have less than 3 the lowest finishing driver(s) will be used. If you have no Consecutive Picks left you will not score any points.
    • If a driver you selected fails to finish you will be able to select them again the next race without penalty.
    • If there is an error let me know, I'm human so they do happen from time to time.
    • If you join after the first round you will be given the minimum points for the races you missed.


    Prize:
    • The Winner will receive a year of :gtplanet: premium membership.
    • In addition the person with the most wins and not leading the points at the end of the season will also receive a year of premium.

    Huh. There's a few names that seem to be trending pretty strongly.

    Biggest problem with picking at the moment is we haven't got a clear picture of who the top drivers are. So I just picked those who to me usually seem strong at the very start of the season when there's hardly any pressure.

    So I can choose a particular driver any number of times as long as he isn't chosen six times in back-to-back races? This is my first time to compete in this and I want to make sure I don't get DQ'd or anything.

    Also, will the spreadsheet show which drivers I've chosen each week and the number of times they were chosen consecutively. Or at least have the archive link up in the OP of future races. I have a feeling I can easily mess this up.

    I should've made my picks after qualifying. I really am anxious to get this season underway.

    Cale had a good example in the NASCAR one, I've edited it to fit F1


    You can select a driver for 6 straight races if you want.

    Standings will show the drivers you selected for that week, there also will be a link for previous weeks.

    I'll post a link to the NASCAR thread as the standings are basically set up the same except for a different color scheme(and names for races and drivers obviously).

    Let me know if that didn't clear things up for you.

    Good luck all:tup:

    OK. I think I get it now.

    I'm the only one so far giving Massa a chance.

    Hi I'm new to this fantasy thing. Do we have to pick 3 drivers for each race?

    Yes, each race will have it's own form.

    Hard to not include the driver you are cheering for, even though the odds aren't as good :)

    CP's are consecutive picks, they allow you to select a driver in consecutive rounds without penalty, you can only do it 6 times though..

    Interval is how far behind from the leader you are.

    Congrats to Barra333 for scoring the most points with 126, also a welcome to Guava, Sylar and a welcome back to ROAD_DOGG33J.

    I've added a rule that really only effects new people.

    Next up is China.

    Woohoo! I wasnt looking good for the first part of the race, but great drive from Webber. There is only one way to go from here :sly:.
    I thought I was being reasonably bold by using up one of my consecutive picks, but it seems not. The CP limit puts some great strategy into this game

    Justin, could you (or anyone else who remembers I suppose) bump the thread after qualifying if it hasn't been posted in for a few days? I nearly forgot to submit my entries this week!

    I did forget. Remembered halfway through the race which was too late. At least it wasn't a total loss. I likely would have done worse if I had put who I was planning to.
