Second last round... !

Indianapolis, what a quick circuit! Great banked corners, ultra wide track, lot of overtaking possibilities... Oh, yes, you know I'm talking about the REAL Indianapolis circuit, I'm not freaky enough to think it will be used for F1! he, he, he, I was joking

Well, at least we have a long fast part, and some good corners in the inner field, and definitively a great atmosphere in a mythical place.

Maybe next year I'll change this game for a new one: "How long will it take Ferrari to lap the field" (but I'll need permision by Toyoter). Anyway, we have this game this season and appart the two Red Cars we have to choose someone to complete the podium. It isn't bad idea to choose it from a good team as Mac or Beemy, but anyone can work fine (it is just one point, after all).

Gerry is two points ahead and he is in serious risk of winning the game!;) If Ferrari messes the race (I just can imagine they colliding in the first corner, with Barry trying to let pass Shuey, or in the final lap, with they trying to arrange a "Le Mans" parade finnish) it can play havoc with the scoring and nobody could be safe But, anyway, I'd prefer to be in gerry_nassar's position ;)

----------------------------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.

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

Thanks for your participation to everyone!

Good luck (for a great race on Sunday) and let's have a good fun of all this!

Goodbye, see you soon in the same channel at the same hour ;)!

Ive sent my guesses to Shummy BEFORE this thread was put up. And i wont be changing my guesses.

I may keep them hidden to keep the suspense up. Im also willing for Schummy to disclose my guesses before the race at anyones request.

I'll guard gerry's guess bravely and nobody will manage that I disclose it even by torture ;) (of course, I'm going to copy it because his guess is too brilliant to let it pass )

Enough goodness and politeness, time to hire a sniper to take you out, one shot, one Gerry, and out of his hand blooded hand, was a copy of the guess the podium choices, you will not win Gerry. Don't worry about it Gerry, just quit the game, its ok, relax at home, order a pizza, forget this game.

Trulli

Maybe Briatore will have to cheat Trulli that race is just a long qualifying session ;)

Brave guess

Well, I hoped for Macs & Willies to "let go" & 2 of them did that.
