Happy with that result. Hoping this is like Leclerc at Baku 2018 for me...

I've double checked the scores at Herb's request. It seems last race I made a mess of, hence somehow the scores have dropped by 400 points [200, correcting for the transfer points which weren't included in Baku's scores]. My apologies for that.

Hmm. I'm not sure the difference between me and Herb are just 4 points from Baku. He has Mercedes in the team while I'm stuck with Ferrari :( . Shouldn't that mean he gets 187 points for Mercedes( 100 and 87) vs the 140 points for Ferrari(78 and 62) for me ? And the only other difference in our selection is Norris and Stroll , in which case again Norris scored 5 points more than Stroll in Baku , right?

This is... probably not correct. You were 149 behind him after China, and only scored 1 more point in Baku. My math is historically terrible but I'm pretty sure the championship standings are going to turn out to be incorrect!

You do. So unless yourself and Jenson's Understeer swap someone over and manage to score better than Herb, he has you beaten.

Well, that was chaos. Nobody will be surprised to learn it was a low scoring race, but I'm sure Herb will be hoping this is the pattern of the season now, just to retain that lead! Sadly we dont have many wet races any more. Then again, he did just lose about 40% of that advantage, so maybe unpredictability hurts more than low scores help...

It was bad for us all. I'm hoping we can all start closing on Herb! We need some more weird races for that though.

On a different note, I'm considering an adaptation to the championship for next year - in the style of the Pick 3 contest, how would people feel about a teams championship too?

I'd be interested, since I always like the team dynamic. I think we should also consider something to try to increase in-season participation, since it's still true that after about the fifth round nobody does much in the way of altering their slate.

Maybe it's time to bring back the jokers?

Basically you get to nominate an extra driver/team (not sure of the details, I'd have to give that more thought) for a single race. I'm tempted to add a joker in the first 3 races, when the rest of the choices are locked in, and then 2 more before the summer break and 2 after. But that first sentence is the important bit for now.

Cheers, sounds good to me

To revisit the joker idea, what would people say to having to play one joker from each group [which I've currently drafted to 4 drivers and 3 teams) across the season? With each group given a specific window in which it must be played, to ensure people are actively playing through the year.

Current idea:

Original picks locked in for the first 3 rounds, then the usual 200 points to spend on tranfers for the year.

Driver Group 1's joker must be used between rounds 3 and 7
Driver Group 2's between 8 and 12
Driver Group 3, 13 to 17
Driver Group 4, 18 to 22

Team Group 1, 5-10
Team Group 2, 11-16
Team Group 3, 17-22

BELGIUM

A brilliant race, for anyone not relying on Max's points! Well deserved win for Leclerc, and finally Ferrari get one in the win column. Since some of you are still scoring from them rather than Mercedes, that's going to do some favours.

ITALY

Ferrari's home race. Ferrari pretty much guaranteed dominance. How wrong we were! Mercedes, with a little more luck, could have swept to a 1-2. Leclerc did a phenomenal job though, and deservedly takes a second consecutive win. There's about 200 points between first and last today, so Monza was huge for the championship.
