    From the man who clearly has too much time on his hands comes his latest fantasy game and a nice little antidote to the world cup.

    We’ll play exclusively on THIS thread (no PMs or e-mails please)

    To Enter. Post a thread nominating ONE F1 team and THREE drivers. You may change ONE of the 4 components of your selection per race if you wish (your 3 drivers DO NOT need to include one from the team you have nominated). Deadline to enter a Grand Prix or make a change to your line-up is when qualifying STARTS on the Saturday of a race weekend.

    Scoring. As with the Fantasy Brass Band League scoring is done using a tote style system. Each one of your 4 selections counts as ONE vote. All the votes are totalled and divided up as points to the correct predictors – so if there was 20 players in a race and 5 of them voted for Ferrari and Ferrari win, each person who voted for them would receive 4 points (20 points ÷ 5 players). With the individual drivers, the players who voted for the winner would receive a share of 70% of the votes, 2nd place 20% of the votes and 3rd 10%, so it encourages you to try and pick the dark horse. The 2 parts of the score (TEAM and INDIVIDUAL) are added together to decide the winner of each race, to score points you need the winning team and/or drivers on the podium. In the event of any ties the place goes to the player who has had their predictions in the longest.

    The Drivers Championship. As with the real F1 championship our winner takes 25 points, with 18 and 15 being awarded for second and third places respectively. The next seven finishers will score 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2 and 1 point respectively.

    The Constructors Championship. Why not buddy-up with another tMPer and make a team? I’ll run a separate constructors championship if you want to do that. I need a team name with no more than TWO players per team (just like the real thing).

    European GP result...

    1. Vettel - @ 10.50 points per vote
    2. Hamilton - 1.50
    3. Button - 0.50

    Team - Red Bull - 5.00

    So our first fantasy GP result is...

    1st. tubaminstrel - 10.50 points
    2nd. sbandsman - 5.5
    3rd. boneman0970 - 2
    4th. COOL,CORNET,CAVE - 1.5
    5th. Ex-Pat BBb - 0.5

    An explanation
    We had 5 fantasy drivers each contributing 3 driver votes and 1 team vote. (=15 driver votes, 5 team votes). Winner driver pot is 70% of 15 (10.50), 2nd 20% (3.00), 3rd 10% (1.50). Team pot 5.00. Only one fantasy driver (tubaminstrel) picked Vettel as so took all 10.50 points. 2 picked Hamilton in 2nd so they shared the 3.00 points (1.50 each) and 3 picked Button sharing 1.50 pts (0.50 each)
