Fantasy F1...

Post by Blackcat75 »

Hi all

So with testing over, it looks like this year will be predictable. Right?

Mercedes and Ferrari will start strongly, Red Bull will catch up fast.
The mid-field will be bunched together like sardines.
Sauber and McLaren (Honda) have a lot of work to do.

No-one will be able to pass, so quali will be all important.

But it was just testing and it all meant nothing... :-P

A friend (of a friend) has set up a fun Fantasy F1 site so you can all prove how right you are.

Have fun!

I'll give it a look, although I'm already entered in so many F1 competitions I can't keep them straight as it is! :lol:

If you like this sort of thing, you might want to check out the forum games we host here on PF1 in the games section. Here are the most prominent ones:

Top Three Championship (predict the podium, featuring 'constructor' teams)
Pick 10 Competition (predict the entire top 10 - the largest and oldest PF1 game)

In addition, there are several newer games in the Forum Games section that offer a variety of competitive experiences to enhance your race experience.

(Sorry for the shameless promotion, but the Top Three championship in particular needs more entrants this year! ;))
PICK 10 COMPETITION (6 wins, 19 podiums): 3rd in 2016
TOP THREE CHAMPIONSHIP (No Limit Excedrin Racing): Champions in 2015 & 2018 | 2nd in 2017 & 2019
AUTOSPORT GP PREDICTOR: 2017 USA & P-F1 Champion

I miss the Fantasy F1 game that Autosport used to do but haven't for the last couple of seasons. I never did that well but I entered as the prizes they offered were good, there does not seem to be any equivalent alternatives that I can find. The first season Sky started showing F1 I emailed to ask if they had a Fantasy F1 game planned and they replied and said no, it would work well alongside their Fanasy Football competition I would have thought.

Alright, I've signed myself up. Do you suppose we're going to get enough PF1 members for a forum league?

Maybe just you and me but I'll give it a go...

It took me less than 4 minutes to join and pick my team. £50M to spend on 2 drivers, an engine and a chassis.

55th in the overall standings... my investment in Ferrari and Vettel was looking like a bargain early on, but as the season went on it became more and more an albatross around my neck.

I ran Vettel, Ocon, Ferrari (chassis), Sauber (engine) for most of the season. Think I started with Ricciardo and changed after a couple of rounds though. I probably should have swapped Vettel out after the summer break to be honest.
