The game consists in guessing the three first drivers (podium positions) in F1 races. You do an ordered guess (e.g. username/Butt/Vett/Alon) and a score is given according to real podium results. The scoring system is as follows (NB: New scoring system for 2013):
Suppose your guess is Butt/Vett/Alon.
If Butt is 1st, 10 points
if Butt is 2nd, 6 points
if Butt is 3rd, 3 points
If Vett is 2nd, 6 points
if Vett is 1st, 4 points
if Vett is 3rd, 2 points
If Alon is 3rd, 3 points
if Alon is 2nd, 2 points
if Alon is 1st, 1 point.
If you get them all correct, you get an extra point, to round your score up to 20 points.
It another driver makes a podium position, he doesn't give any points. The driver has to be on the podium to give points. The maximum score per round is 19+1=20 points.
Points will be awarded as per the drivers who celebrate the official podium ceremony after the race, with no subsequent protests or exclusions taken into account.
*** ALL GUESSES TO BE POSTED BY FIRST PRACTICE OF RACE WEEKEND. LATE GUESSES WILL BE EXCLUDED FROM THE ROUND ***
Ties in general classification at the end of the season will be resolved by best past results through the year, i.e. the player with the most first places wins the game; in case of further tie, the player with the most second places, and so on.
Our two intrepid 'Bot' players return, BERNIE guesses the podium finishers from the last round and JEAN guesses the leading three drivers in the championship.
Good luck to all .
