This game is about predicting the positions each team's cars will finish each race in, without specifying drivers. It would run for each GP, with pts added towards the final result at season's end.
You make two predictions per team. The possibilities are:
- 1 - win
p - podium (2nd or 3rd)
6 - top 6 (4th - 6th)
10 - top 10 (7th - 10th)
f - classified finish outside top 10
nf - non-finish, (eg. retirement, disqualification, non-starter or unclassified finish)
Each correct prediction scores 1pt. If both predictions for a team are correct, you get a bonus pt. The max score for a race is therefore 30pts.
Mercedes - 1 and p
Ferrari - p and 6
Red Bull - p and nf
Renault - 6 and 10
Haas - 6 and nf
Mclaren - f and f
Racing Pt - 6 and 10
Alfa Romeo - 10 and nf
Torro Rosso - 10 and f
Williams - f and nf
Note: You can predict more than 1 team to win the race; or, as above, make 3 (or more) predictions for the 2 podium places. The same for all other prediction types.
In above example: if Mercedes finish 1-2 or 1-3 you get 3pts for the team whichever driver wins. If they finish 2-3 or 1-4 you only get 1pt.
(You don't have to put 'and' between the 2 picks for each team as I did above, but please separate them with a space or comma at least. Also it would help if you keep the teams in 2018 Constructors pts order as above.)
The final cut-off time for entries for each GP will be 'on the hour' ten minutes before race start. BUT entries received or amended after the start of FP3 will be subject to a penalty of 50% of their score. This will be rounded down, so 20 or 21 pts would be reduced to 10.
As I don't have satellite TV I expect to have the results ready 3-4 hours after each race finishes - maybe a bit more for far-eastern races.
The game starts with the 2019 Australian GP, but new entrants are welcome at any time.
