How to enter: Just submit your guess for what the pole time will be, and who you think will take pole.
Grid penalties are ignored if and only if they are due to disciplinary reasons.

Deadline:
Entries are accepted only if they are submitted/edited before First Free Practice.
Entries that are edited after the beginning of First Free Practice but before I have registered the entries will be ignored.

Scoring rules

-The best ten guessers (closest to the actual pole position time) Score points F1 style, 25-18-15-12-10-8-6-4-2-1.

-Precision points are given to every participant whose guess was sufficiently close to the actual pole position time according to this list:
<-----------Time offsets----------->
Pts Default Modified Layout New Track [s]
25 - 0.100 - 0.200 - 0.300
18 - 0.200 - 0.400 - 0.600
15 - 0.400 - 0.800 - 1.200
12 - 0.600 - 1.200 - 1.800
10 - 0.800 - 1.600 - 2.400
8 - 1.000 - 2.000 - 3.000
6 - 1.200 - 2.400 - 3.600
4 - 1.500 - 3.000 - 4.500
2 - 1.800 - 3.600 - 5.400
1 - 2.500 - 5.000 - 7.500

The first race of the season counts as a Modified Layout unless it's brand new.
A track that wasn't used the previous season also counts as a Modified Layout.
A track that hasn't been used for the previous five seasons counts as a New Track.

-Driver Points are given for correctly guessing the driver to take pole position. The amount of points given depends on the current value of the driver, according to this list:
Pts Recent qualifying results
18 0 front row starts in the previous five races
13 1 front row start in the previous five races
9 2 front row starts in the previous five races
6 3 front row starts in the previous five races
4 4 front row starts in the previous five races
3 5 front row starts in the previous five races

Just to clarify - does this mean that Hamilton's grid penalty will NOT be ignored as it's not due to disciplinary reasons?

Yes, his penalty will not be ignored. Perhaps one might not buy into my reasoning that a technical infringement may lead to an unfair performance advantage, but that's the way the rule is in this game for this season... Thanks also for double negations at 3am, my brain is melting! :p

I'd feel awkward changing my driver guess now as I've clarified this rule this late, but I'll change my time guess:
96.229 seconds.
