With the first Formula One race of the year now behind us, most other forum games have only just started a new season. The 2017 Silly Season Trophy, on the other hand, has just ended. Although the outcome of this game was pretty much clear weeks ago, Wehrlein's late withdrawal made for the final points change of the game and brought KWSN – DSM and extra two points and moved him four spots up.

 

ANF was the best at predicting the 2017 driver and team line-up, and joins the list of previous winners. Congratulations!

 

2003: Brian O Flaherty
2004: Flying Panda
2005: lukywill, Viceroy, Makarias

2017: ANF

 

Below is the list of full results, including the average pick as mentioned in the original thread. The fact that the average pick performed so well might suggest that this silly season was not particularly crazy in terms of driver moves and conservative choices generally performed better. In fact, the average pick would have performed better than anyone had I put Grosjean in Haas and Räikkönen in Ferrari, which was an alternative.

 1. ANF			78	11
 2. TurnOffTheLights	76	12
    Average pick	75	11
 3. MashedPotato	72	10
 4. Brawn BGP 001	72	10
 5. Makarias		70	10
 6. mark f1		70	10
 7. Kev00		70	10
 8. Anja		67	 9
 9. Costaz		67	 9
10. Marklar		67	 9
11. KWSN – DSM		66	 8
12. AlguersuariJA	66	 8
13. charly0418		65	 9
14. Viceroy		65	 9
15. DutchQuicksilver	64	 8
16. noikeee		64	 8
17. Anderis		60	 8
18. SpaceHorseParty	59	 7
19. chadwick8505	59	 7
20. Gyan		59	 7
21. scheivlak		57	 7
22. Cig35		56	 6

Perhaps the most important pick ANF made was not including Manor in his entry list. He was the only one to correctly predict only ten teams joining the grid this year and was rewarded with an extra five points for that. He was also one of only three people to predict a Hamilton/Bottas lineup at Mercedes. TurnOffTheLights and MashedPotato were the only two people to predict Räikkönen staying at Ferrari for another season, which allowed them to finish second and third in the standings, respectively.

 

Here are the full results, including where each of the participants scored their points (this is not the correct order, as it does not take into account when a guess was submitted when two players are tied on points):
