Up to 4th, wow... who is Sapient - F1?
Rising number one of Formula 1, Juan - Juan, one wonders should Juan only win one Formula 1 one year, would Juan have won that one in round one, Juan??

We haven't visited this in a while but it looks like we've had the same leader from the beginning to the end of the season with WCC handed out after last week's race. It was only really a race for 2nd, with a VERY nice race for 3rd place on the podium!

So Jabberwocky wins!

Even though he did enter 18253 teams... :P

I was only 6 seconds off on the tiebreak, heh.

That's actually something to brag about, it was much harder that it would seem, esp since I went by last year's time and then guesstimated the differences in fuel load and additional pit times and any speed improvements. Very hard indeed... so I wonder that that six seconds would put you on based on all of the guesses submitted.

I had Sapient GP and I'm happy with second step on the podium, even though I should have flipped my chassis and engines. It's clear that hardware trumps drives in the league.

I'll be there... The most challenging part of this fantasy game though was that you couldn't change things. It was also the more boring aspect of it, so you had to live with our mistakes.

I got a better results and a little more fun out of the SPPEDtv fantasy game. But it was fun competing on this one with other from the forum, so maybe next year we can entice more entries to the forumula1.com grid.

Considering i had Massa AND De la Rosa as drivers.... i think 12th (middle of the pack, ie average) is a pretty good result!!

It's supposed to start shortly, the site says this month. Go through the instructions, it goes all season long, you pick two drivers a chassis and and engine and then they score points for you based on the actual race results.
