Rules

General rules

1. Pick your Formula One team for each race! A team consists of two Formula One drivers and a Formula One team.

2. For each race you have a fixed 100 million € budget. Each team component has its own price. You have to choose one element from all of the three categories. It is not allowed to pick for example only the two drivers. The challenge is to find a good compromise between price and performance.

3. You can’t use your unspent money in the following races so you would be well advised to spend as much as you can. 🙂

4. You get points based on the performance of team components at the given Grand Prix weekend.

5. Registration is required to participate in the game.

6. If you are a registered member, you can pick your team for each race separately.

7. The price of the components will change throughout the season based on the performance of the drivers and teams.

8. When filling out the form, you can see each component’s price after its name in parenthesis. For example Vettel (42) means that Vettel’s price is 42 million Euro. If the total value of your chosen components exceeds 100 million €, the Submit button will be disabled, so choose your team wisely.

9. For each round you have to answer a few ‘random’ questions as well. These are funny additions to the game and sometimes they are not at all easy to answer. Each random question has a point value shown inside parenthesis after the question mark. If you answer correctly, this is the amount of points you get. In some cases you can also get a few points for the second or third (etc) best answers.

10. The maximum number of points a player can get is 100 for each race (25 + 25 + 25 = 75 for the components and 25 for the Random questions). Since your funds are limited your team most probably won’t earn you 75 points. Scoring 50+ points in a weekend is considered to be a good result while 65+ is really impressive.

11. You have to submit your entry at latest an hour before the start of the qualifying.

12. You are free to edit your entry anytime before the deadline. To edit your submission, just go to the Form and change your answers before hitting the Update button.

13. The results and the form for the next race is usually posted by the Monday before each race.

Detailed team components and scoring:

Qualifying driver

You score points if the driver you have chosen finishes in the TOP15 in the Qualifying.
Scoring: 25 – 21 – 18 – 16 – 14 – 12 – 10 – 8 – 7 – 6 – 5 – 4 – 3 – 2 – 1
(Example: if you chose Räikkönnen and he qualifies third, you’ll get 18 points. If he ends the qualifying in the 5th position then you’ll get 14 points. If he wins the qualifying, you score a whopping 25 points. However, if he finishes the session in the place, you won’t get any points for this component.)

Scoring: 25 – 21 – 18 – 16 – 14 – 12 – 10 – 8 – 7 – 6 – 5 – 4 – 3 – 2 – 1

Team

For this part the total number of points scored by your chosen team counts.
Only the best 8 teams worth points. If two or more team score the same number of points, they are ranked by the position of the better driver from each team.
Scoring: 25 – 19 – 14 – 10 – 7 – 5 – 3 – 1
(Example: if you choose Red Bull and they score 14 points while Mercedes and Ferrari score 40 and 30 points respectively while all of the other teams score less than 14, then you’ll get 14 points for this component.)
