This race had the potential to be a repeat of Australia, although not as spectacularly so. However all the drivers involved in scuffles on the track refused to retire as a direct result of these scuffles and, instead, relied on engine failures to eliminate them from the race. Still, three of the key drivers recorded a DNF but this does not seem to have had too detrimental affect on the overall results.

Having a few more drivers finish has meant that more teams scored better results, the average score being about 250 points better. So who got their team into gear this round. Top step on the podium is occupied by JForce4 with a good score of 699. While 2nd place is a dead heat between **Yoong Guns** and Aces High F1 Team

Well, not a leader, but reasonable result for my teams, considering I've used quite like Ferrari style, modified team names, I'm quite pleased, meanwhile I'm testing some other team names for reliability in other forums, not pressured into using them quite yet like the f1-2002. :smoking:

Thanks garth_b for the results, very fun playing this, my first time:up:

You are (you're not your) welcome SeanValen. That is the purpose of my little (sic) comp. To give fellow forumers a taste of Fantasy Manager comps so that they can have the confidence to go out into the real world and give them a go. I played 3 or 4 Fantasy Manager games last year. Don't have the time to play any this year with all the comps I am scoring.

Hope you enjoy it to the end of the season.

By the way your Die Hard trilogy name is a bit of a mouthful. Causes me some greif in getting the results posted. However, anything to please the customer. ;)

Bad start with all my teams. Thats why I am publishing the quide to:

Worst drivers to fantasize about so far
(to save space this is limited to the drivers who are still stuck in the single or double digits)

Panis (6 points)
His manager Keke Rosberg tried hard to get him signed to Suzuka Special. Good thing the wise team manager decided to pass in favor of the cheaper ex-world champion Villeneuve instead. I hope Keke has better luck having him re-signed to BAR.

Trulli (24 points)
To be considered one of the Monsters of the Midfield you have to finish races above of all else. He better shape up before Canada or he's OUT!

Bernoldi (37 points)
To show up the world champion in a race is no good if you can't produce more points. There are plenty more 6 million dollar or cheaper drivers out there breathing down his neck.

Barrichello (85 points)
I am seeing red with this guy. $23 million and he hasn't finished a race yet. I guess I was also seeing red when I signed him to Räkä, Teletappi ja Pikkuskotti. And to think I named part of the team after him. The embarrassment! Good thing it is in an obscure language so only few will now. Maybe I can trade him after all.

Coulthard (97 points)
And this guy. Same thing. He gets a team named after him and what does he do? Breaks down. Two guys of the top five worst drivers in the team Kuutio, Coulthard and Bernoldi. No way to win.

But the season is still young...

Sorry if I caused you some greif about my long die hard name, next year I'll keep the titles short, plus as a recommendation for next year, make a word limit for titles as apart of the games rules, just to remind some of us:up:

Great competition:up:

Yep season still young.

Don't give up:up: Other popular driver choices etc for other members, maybe not be the right choice at times, anything can happen and it usually does:up:

Yep. Like some of the managers here I am going thru' a steep learning curve too. I hadn't seen name length restrictions elsewhere so didn't think about it. It is not a problem on the web pages only in the threads. You may have seen some of the principal names got truncated. I made enough room for the team names but not enough for the principals. :| :|

So there will be a couple of rule changes next year but it should still have the same flavour.

You should limit the teams too. I find it in extremely poor taste that some people created 8 or more teams. Though there's nothing monetary at stake, I still think its kind of lame.

The rule about multiple teams was there from the start - maybe you are just annoyed that you didn't take advantage of it.

No it just doesn't make sense. There was nothing to stop someone from making every valid combination and winning by default before the season even starts. I'm in 3rd and I only have 1 team that I thought about and thought about for hours before I made my picks. Picking 6 or 7 teams and hoping one of them does well would cheapen the good feeling you get for doing well I would think.

Obviously, its too late to change it now, but it should be for next year 1 team only.

I have said this elsewhere but you have obviously not seen it.

I did not expect to get the response I had. I thought I would be struggling to get 50 teams. I allowed multiple entries to make it a decent sized comp. The competition I modeled this on was from the Formula1.com site that allowed 4 teams last year and 3 teams this year. Given the number of entries I will be limiting the numbers to 2 teams each next year (I think). The intention was to give people an opportunity to try one of these out before going to the more proffessional comps that can be found all over the web. The rules are as the rules are - for this year. I am on a learning curve with this. Everyone entered under the same conditions. To have entered every possible combination you would have to put in 2,661,120 teams (not taking into account budget constaints). I think the budget was soft and gave plenty of opportunity to create a good team.

Please, try to enjoy the competition for what it is. A bit of fun.

A fun competition - thanks for the work! Hope that the pleasure (?) you get from running this and other competitions somehow compensates for the loss of fun in not taking part in any yourself...

I will struggle to lift myself from the lowly depths of hundredth-odd... *sigh*

I built two teams with two totally separate philosophies.
One,an expensive driver.
Two,an expensive car.
Did the same last year.
While I agree that the multible entries can be abused,keeping it to two teams is not unreasonable in my book.
