2018 F1 Prediction Challenge

Post by TheDamus »

The games forum seems a bit sparse at the moment. Since I enjoyed the games I played in last year so much. I decided why not start up a simple pre-season game. 25 questions in total. Answer all 25 before the start of practice in Melbourne. 1 point rewarded for each question at the end of the season. Please feel free to suggest anything to change/add in the game. We could come up with more than 25 questions for instance.


Place the teams in their WCC finishing position
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

Who wins in each team
11. Hamilton vs Bottas
12. Vettel vs Raikkonen
13. Ricciardo vs Verstappen
14. Perez vs Ocon
15. Stroll vs Sirotkin
16. Hulkenburg vs Sainz
17. Gasly vs Hartley
18. Grosjean vs Magnussen
19. Alonso vs Vandoorne
20. Ericsson vs Leclerc

Team "firsts" predictions
21. Race retirement
22. Race retirement from the lead ("will not happen" an acceptable answer)
23. Grid penalty for any reason
24. Grid penalty for any new power unit parts
25. Drivers hit their teammate in a race (any level of contact)

Interesting idea! I'll be sure to fill one out after testing. I like the part of including teammate head-to-heads, since I've considered creating a race-by-race game built around predicting teammate performance. One thread is enough for me to curate, however.

And just so you know, the Top Three goes up for preseason and team formation after the first day of testing every year, so it will be coming along in about a week's time! :thumbup:
PICK 10 COMPETITION (4 wins, 16 podiums): 3rd in 2016

The first 10 are the team positions for the WCC. I'm not set in concrete on 25 questions. We can always add 10 for the WDC

Looks like nobody picked #23 as Red Bull.

Edit: Also we have #21 as Williams. #25 is Torro Rosso. #22 is Mercedes with Bottas #24 is Red Bull with Ricciardo.
