Hold on while I amend this... I accidentally gave Norris the joint win rather than 10th. Only noticed when checking stats for something else.

1 = EXEDIRON - 618
1 = JENSON'S UNDERSTEER 618
3 - HERB - 605
4 - P-F1 MOD - 585
5 - JN23 - 572
6 - ICEMANJEE1 - 562
7 - JEZZA13 - 557
8 - COULTHARD'S CHIN - 549
9 - REMMIRATH - 459
10 - MOD BLUE - 441

CHAMPIONSHIP

1 - HERB - 7080
2 - EXEDIRON - 6860
3 - P-F1 MOD - 6856

I like the alternate universe where Norris won more... :)

Most of us do! Although the weird shared win and nobody finishing 10th caused said universe to implode, so sadly we had to revert to this result instead.

SINGAPORE

Leclerc won't be happy with that result but Maranello will be ecstatic. Russell becomes the first 2019 Williams retiree, although Kubica was previously classified 20th so it's not the first time they've been last. In the end this was a gold mine for any Ferrari-backed players, although Haas denied everyone a point.

My only mistake this time was that apparently Bottas got the FL point, which I thought wasn't awarded this time. Correcting now, but your win is safe.

He didn't, Magnussen got the fastest lap:

I saw elsewhere that Bottas scored the point though the official results are on your side Herb. And originally mine. Will un-edit!

RUSSIA

A strategic defeat against Ferrari who are juggling too many layers of politics and racing at once. Mercedes probably closed out the titles here. McLaren also got a good score over Renault today, which doubly hurts the works team as they prepare to lose their only customer.

BIG change here. Swapping Mercedes for Ferrari, and Ricciardo/Kvyat for both McLaren drivers. I now have 98 bonus points left... Got to take the risk for a podium spot.

Well, that failed for me :lol:

Anyone banking on good Renault points probably had a minor panic after qualifying, but they really turned it around in the race. Conversely, anyone stupid enough to swap to Ferrari from Mercedes after Russia... nuff said!

And finally, we have the Abu Dhabi Group Pick results.

1 - COULTHARD'S CHIN - 565
2 = EXEDIRON - 560
2 = JENSON'S UNDERSTEER - 560
4 - HERB - 552
5 = JN23 - 529

7 - REMMIRATH - 498
8 - ICEMANJEE1 - 485
9 - MOD BLUE - 467
10 - JEZZA13 - 425

FINAL STANDINGS

10 - JEZZA13 - 8847
9 - MOD BLUE - 9489
8 - REMMIRATH - 9697
7 - JN23 - 9781
6 - ICEMANJEE1 - 9295
5 - P-F1 MOD - 10101
4 - JENSON'S UNDERSTEER - 10295
3 - EXEDIRON - 10432
2 - COULTHARD'S CHIN - 10522
1 - HERB - 10707

Interestingly, the number of wins doesn't quite sync with this.

JOINT 9TH, 0 WINS: REMMIRATH; ICEMANJEE1
JOINT 6TH, 1 WIN: EXEDIRON; JN23; JENSON'S UNDERSTEER
JOINT 3RD, 3 WINS: P-F1 MOD; MOD BLUE; JEZZA13
2ND, 5 WINS: HERB
1ST, 6 WINS, COULTHARD'S CHIN

So, Herb and Coulthard's Chin, I'll let you fight it out over whether points or medals should be awarded this year :twisted: Meanwhile, I'll just steal the trophy because let's be honest, a binary palindrome score deserves something!

Seriously, well done Herb. You did a great job this year.

Herb just won the championship? I thought that happened all the way back some time in June? 8)

I think it was sewn up by Monaco really. Prior to that, Herb won 4 out of 5 races, including the locked-in choice rounds at the start. Azerbaijan was the only exception, which Mod Blue stole by a whole 5 points. Worth noting that Blue took the first 500 point score though, though Herb had the best result of the year with 671 points in Austin.

The locked-in period was what really did it. By the time we all bailed on Ferrari, Herb already had an advantage that was barely surmountable.

This is why I'm bringing back the jokers next season, in specific windows. Keeps everyone returning to the thread or suffering a natural penalty as well which is a nice bonus. But they'll be alongside the transfer system, not replacing it.

Thanks guys!

Well done Coulthard's Chin. Kept it interesting!

I've won this twice now, I think both times it's because I didn't trust a team's practice speed!
