The league is called Forumula1.com to match the name of this site, it was intentional... :P



That's funny, I've only now just realized the spelling on the site. Weird though that looking for it on the F1 fantasy game site it immediately popped out at me there.

In any case, good luck to everyone playing. I only joined with my primary team. The second team is an experimental team with an opposing philosophy to my main team.

I only chose Renault cos it fitted the money I had left. And no sarky comments on my choosing Lewis instead of Jens...


I changed mine - I caved because I am weak... :P Plus I decided that I didn't want the Cossie engine.

Over the winter period we at the Jabberwocky Race team looked into the regulations of Fantasy F1 and determined that there is no issue or rules against providing supplementry teams that would enhance the championship.

There is a lot of other clever and inteligent people working for other teams that I am sure would of also put the plan into action if they had thought of it.

Also after consulting with the FIA, Motorsport World Council and my Mum, that providing multiple teams is not infact agains the spirit of the regulation.

Second team looks handy. For me, it was definitely worth picking a good car cause you essentially get two scores for it, and it's worth more points than the engine...

PS go on then, who registered as Messi? :hehe:

Yeah, seems to be. Especially considering the way the race played out. I was hoping those with great racecraft and race pace would be advantaged, but the rules had the opposite effect to the one I was expecting, so it looks like good hardware was the more reliable option.

I would imagine that Merc engines are going too do well in every race, Mercedes, Mclaren, and even Force India put a good showing
