Another chop of a long circuit. I wonder more and more often why they don't run 16 or 17 races in the same track reducing costs and improving track facilities :p Basically almost all the tracks looks the same. If you cut some twisty section in Hungaroring, add some "safety" chicane in Blanchimont area in Spa, and eliminate Monza for "local law" difficulties, we will have a full house of Mickey-Mouse-magnycourish tracks.

My particular wishful thinking F1 season: :)
Bathurst? (LOL, I know it is unreal, sorry. Maybe philip island?)
Sepang
Old looong Interlagos
Old chicaneless Imola
Old Kyalami?
Old high speed Zeltweg :cry:
Monaco?
Montreal?
Old Nurburgring (well, ok, this is too unreal)
Old complete Paul Ricard
Good old Silvertone (or chicaneless Brands Hatch)
Spa (old Spa would be too much, I think)
Old chicaneless Monza (I admit I dislike Monza with chicanes)
Elkhart Lake :love:
Suzuka

Well, it was just for fun, although I admit I drool about it :drunk:

Let's pass to the guess game itself, and sorry for my wandering mind. It must be the hot weather.

----------------------------Warning! The Usual Boring Part Ahead! ---------------------------

It consists in guessing the three firsts in F1 races. You do an ordered guess (i.e. MS-JPM-RS) and a score is given according to real podium results. The scoring system is as explained here:

Suppose you do the guess MS-JPM-RS.

If MS is 1st, 3 points
if MS is 2nd, 2 points
if MS is 3rd, 1 point

If JPM is 1st, 2 points
if JPM is 2nd, 2 points
if JPM is 3rd, 1 point

If RS is 1st, 2nd or 3rd, 1 point

It another driver makes a podium position, it doesn't give any points.

The key for this system is not "gambling" on the exact position but to do a realistic shot at the relative merit of each driver in that GP. For instance, you are not penalized for JPM being first and not 2nd, as the penalty comes by not scoring with MS's first position.

In order to have a reference I will enter two "dummy" players: Bernie and Max (the names were chosen randomly ). Bernie always guesses the firsts three qualifyers, and Max always guesses the firsts three classified in WDC current points table. Can you outscore B&M?

Any guess can be done before one hour before the official first start of the race. We will use the "official" Atlas Forum clock to resolve close entries.

Sometimes I calculate a new secundary classification with average score to give an opportunity to no so constant players, that fail to guess from time to time.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Can someone dare to get closer to Estwald and gerry? Can you bear to be menaced by the might of MAX & BERNIE? Do you want to outguess our elite forecasting Kimi defeating Michael? Where in the world could you guess a podium for Jax Ville and people don't laughing about it ;) ? Come here and guess, entry is free :rolleyes: ;)

Thanks to everyone and good weekend! :wave:

Estwald: 3th = Kimi
gerry: 3th = Monty

I'm going to look at those two during the race! Maybe we will have a cosmic split here between the most famous pair in recent history, at least after Marco Antonio & Cleopatra ;)

DC third?... ummm... maybe... those Scotch are mad (Asterix dixit) :) Why they have so many fast racing drivers? I suppose in the Highlands a car is not that useful :)

My guess: MSCH - RB - RSCH

MAX: MSCH - JPM - RB
BERNIE: MSCH - RSCH - RB

BTW, last week Schuting Star gave us his Hockenheim guess: MSCH - JPM - RSCH (I assume he will be pulling his hair seeing Monty's qualifying session ;) )

I confess I'd like to see Kimi doing something great, he appears to be so focused and cool, but I don't want to mess my scoring even more!
