How do I enter this competition?
You just post a reply to this thread with what you think will be the driving pairings (no more than two drivers per team) that each of the at most twelve teams will present for the first GP of 2005!
Please try to be clear about the drivers' names; I might not have heard of some rookies that you have listed, so a full name for new drivers (and other drivers that are easy to mix up otherwise too) would be appreciated. You don't have to list more teams than you think that there will be around in 2005.
How do I score points in this competition?
-You will score five points for each driver that you have put in the right team.
-If a driver you have listed in one team drives for another one, you will score two points for him/her.
-If a driver that you have listed won't be driving for any team, you will score 0 points for that driver, unless the driver in question would have raced for some team but is "temporarily unavailable" due to injury or ban.
-If you happen to put the same driver in several teams, you will only score points for the best guess of those.
-If you don't list twelve teams, you will score points for the missing seats if there aren't twelve teams around in 2005. Five points/driver if the team you left out is missing, two points/driver if there's another team missing.
-You can also guess for an UNKNOWN driver (with no given name) taking a seat in a team. The meaning of "unknown" here is that the driver won't be mentioned in any other entry for this competition. The unknown driver can only give you points if he/she is in that very team where you have guessed for an unknown.
Are there any awards?
Eternal glory and bragging rights if you manage to beat someone.
Also note that this competition is nowhere near being included in any silly Supercup thingy...
When is the deadline?
In order to get the entries within a reasonably short time span, the competition is open for entries and edits until the end of November 2003, CET.
And here are my guesses:
Ferrari: M Schumacher Barrichello Williams: R Schumacher Webber McLaren: Räikkönen Montoya Renault: Alonso Franck Montagny Sauber: Fisichella Massa Jordan: Trulli Firman BAR: Button Sato Jaguar: Coulthard Heidfeld Minardi: Bruni Justin Wilson Toyota: Da Matta Björn Wirdheim
I suppose the advantage with posting my useless guess first is that it will motivate you all to show that I'm crap at this.
