Atlas Voting Championship 2002: Belgium
Posted 01 September 2002 - 15:12
Remember to consider the whole weekend, not just the race.
Step 1 - GP takes place & voting opens
Step 2 - Everybody votes for the three drivers they genuinely think did well in the GP. One top driver and two running up. If I feel you are simply voting for the fav driver each time I'll put you on the blacklist for a while. (I won't be voting myself, to make it fairer) Also not arguing over somebody elses votes or again on the blacklist you go. Posts should be along the lines of:
...Top Drive: Driver X - The one guy who impressed you most over the GP Weekend
...Runner Ups : Driver Y, Driver Z - The next two guys who impressed you.
Make it clear which Schumacher you mean, and which driver is Top Drive. Don't use the abbreviation MS without further clarification, as it could mean both Michael Schumacher and Mika Salo.
Step 3- Voting will close in about a week
Step 4 - I'll add up the total number of votes. 2 pts for a top vote and 1 for a runner-up vote. This will produce a 'race result'. Should drivers have the same voting score then I will split them by who has had the most Top Votes. If that fails then simply in race result order.
Step 5 - The drivers will then be awarded championship points on a 10-6-4-3-2-1 system.
Rate the race
Please rate the race from 0-10, using the following guide.
Quality of race
This should be a reflection of how good the race was, not how much you liked the results. Please don't give it a one or two just because driver X failed to win the championship. Think about how much it had your pulse racing and you guessing at what the end result was going to be. Use the guide below to help, and think carefully. Try to compare it not just to the last few races, but all the grand prix you've ever watched. Votes of 9 and 10 should be quite rare.
10 The best race I've ever seen
9 Contender for the best race of the last few seasons
8 Contender for the best race of the season
7 Brilliant race, I was on the edge of my seat for a lot of the race
6 Better than average, more than a few on the edge the seat moments
5 An average race, nothing spectacular but worth watching
4 Below average, too few exciting moments
3 Well, there was one or two moments of interest
2 That was completely predictable
1 I struggled to watch it all the way through
0 I slept through most of it
Satisfaction with the results
Please also rate the race in terms of how satisfied you are with the results. This one
should be based on if driver X wins the championship or not! Also factors such controversy
over DQ's that sour the event should be considered.
10 All the right results, and done with style
9 All the right results, if not in the best manner
8 Mostly the right results
7 Mostly the right results with a bit of luck
6 Some of drivers/teams I liked did well
5 Neither happy nor sad with the results
4 My likes didn't quite manage to do well
3 My likes did quite badly
2 My likes did quite badly and my dislikes did good
1 All the wrong drivers/teams did very well but I'll give them credit for doing it well
0 All the wrong drivers/teams did very well and the right ones did badly

(At Spa, best driver on the best track, add f1-2002 as well, amazing stuff, gets record of 10 in a season in the best way possible, plus pole position.)
(Not a great weekend for Williams, but McLarens could of gotten 3rd, Montoya beated the McLarens, well done)
3) Eddie Irvine
(perhaps difficult to measure his performance, but a great race, deserving of a menstion, Jaguar point!)
(MS in the best Ferrari, out driving his teamate, best track in the world, a thrill itself, rest of the battles a bonus.)

Runner ups: Raikkonen, for the whole weekend.
Villeneuve, for some exciting battles.
Too bad there's no place for Massa, who did some great overtakes and was better than his teammate during the whole weekend.

Posted 02 September 2002 - 10:08
anyway Top drive Michael Schumacher
runners Up DC and Irvine
Quality 1 ( by definition I actually left it at one point it was sooo bad)
Posted 02 September 2002 - 15:37
Runners up: JPM & M Schumacer
Posted 03 September 2002 - 08:43
Runners Up: Eddie Irvine, Kimi Raikonnen
Quality: 6 (MS was brilliant although I wasn't "on the edge of my seat"; there was some interesting mid-field stuff)
Posted 03 September 2002 - 08:52
Runners up: Raikkonen, his qualifying was superb to see and held onto the car well when he slid in the race.
Irvine, it took luck to get it in the points but the car looked a handful all weekend and he had to really work for it.
Quality: 7, probably because I was there and the seats are so uncomfortable being on the edge of them is probably the only way.
Satisfaction: 10, perfect for my first live race - Michael gets pole and wins the race in dominant fashion.
