Making a return from a three year break it is the Formula One Team Battles Prediction Game


> RULES

Anyway, the rules! It is so simple that you don't even need to watch F1 to take part, as you can just guess. Of course a bit of F1 knowledge may give you an advantage, but then again it may not. happy.gif Basically there are ten teams in this year's F1 season (as things stand), so that means they are going to be ten Team Battles. All you have to do is try and predict which driver in each team will qualify higher, and then finish the race higher (or last longer if both team members fail to finish - ).

Using the Renault "team battle" as an example, if you think that Hülkenberg will qualify higher and finish the race higher than his team-mate Ricciardo then all you need to do is put a "Q" and "R" next to his name to predict this:

Renault: Hülkenberg [Q, R] vs Ricciardo

Or if you choose, you could spread your bets and decide that while you think Pérez may qualify higher, you think Hülkenberg is more reliable in the race and will finish the race the higher of the two. Therefore, you'd predict the team battle like this:

Force India: Hülkenberg [Q] vs Perez [R]

And then you just do that for each of the ten teams! In the event of a driver replacing another, then predictions from the original driver will carry over directly to the replacement driver. So of course F1 knowledge of knowing each driver's strengths and current form could put you at an advantage, but there is nothing to stop complete F1 novices from making completely random guesses and joining in.

>> SCORING

You get two points for a correct prediction of the highest qualifier in each team and two points for a correct prediction of the highest race finisher in each time. You also then have the opportunity to predict who will be on pole position and win the race, and five points are available for each of these predictions if you get them correct to make a total of 40 points available on each race weekend! This will hopefully run for the first 10 races of the season if there is interest, and we can start it again for the second half of the season if desired.

>> QUICK INSTRUCTIONS

So that all seems quite complicated, all you need to do is put a Q and an R next to a driver in each team and predict the pole position winner and race winner using the template in the post below, and then just post in this topic! The rest will all make sense as we go along!

Sweet, let's see if I can keep it up! I know I didn't pick a 'top 3' driver to win so I was bit worried, but I was hoping the new aero package would shake things up!
