This is a new competition for 2019. The target is to get as little points as possible.
For every race, each member will pick one driver and the same driver may not be picked twice. The member will get points according to the finishing position of the driver, so win is worth of one point, 2nd place worth of two points etc. After all classified drivers, the list is followed by retired drivers followed by disqualified drivers followed by non-starting drivers.
 
The initial prediction of first 20 races (Australia to Brazil) has to be made before FP1 starts at Australia. However, if new drivers enter the series mid-season, it is possible to change predictions before next FP1. If there is a driver change occurring in the middle of the weekend, the member is credited with the new driver if (s)he had picked the replaced driver. (like Massa/di Resta in Hungary 2017) The original driver is available for future races.
 
There are two ways to edit original selection:
1. Choose new driver for Abu Dhabi
2. Choose new driver for any other race and bump original selection of that race to Abu Dhabi.
3. If there is a second new driver mid-season, it is possible to select that driver to replace any of the remaining selections.
 
If no driver changes occur, no points is awarded for Abu Dhabi race.
 
Additionally, each member predicts how many points Daniel Ricciardo will score during the season. This will act as a tie-breaker.
 
The worst result of each member is discounted. This will not be applied if there are no driver changes during the season.
 
Here is the list of races, please copy this and fill in the 20 drivers in an order you wish:
Australia -
Bahrain -
China -
Azerbaijan -
Spain - 
Monaco -
Canada - 
France -
Austria -
Britain -
Germany - 
Hungary - 
Belgium -
Italy - 
Singapore - 
Russia - 
Japan - 
Mexico - 
United States - 
Brazil -
Abu Dhabi -

So, if I understand it correctly, I can choose a driver before the start of every weekend. Previous chosen drivers are taken off the pool of available drivers, until I end up with a single driver in Brazil.

 

I don't have to choose all drivers before the start of the season, right?

So if I get this right, you basically guess which driver finishes highest each race? Whereas you’re limited to the fact you can only chose a driver once correct?

Wow I just realised I made a terrible mistake. Clearly didn’t read the rules properly, or at all! So instead of selecting the best drivers for each race I selected what I thought would be the worst.

Probably just read it as ‘pick a driver for each race, fewest points wins’ 🙈

Ah well, should be fun to see how my predictions turn out at the end of the year

Those of us who chose Vettel, didn't fare that much better either. The other 13 players have a chance with Vettel scoring better...

Kev00, my bet is on you.

Australia - Albon
Hungary - Albon
 

 

 

I noticed this when tracking those. Stroll was missing so as a jury I decided that Albon is your pick for Australia and Stroll for Hungary.

Vettel was again a popular pick in Bahrain - and 5th place isn't very good by his standards.

 

KWSN - DSM was the only one to pick Hamilton, while Costaz was robbed second win in two races with Leclerc's problems.

 

On the other end, thegforcemaybewithyou had Hülkenberg and Barty Grosjean - retirements gave them high scores.

Green = up from previous race, red = down, black = no change.

 

 

As of now, I plan to make two forecasts after Azerbaijan GP

- One with each driver according to their WDC position

- One with each driver according to their average position

No driver was dominating China picks - Leclerc having three was the most. Anyway, not a very surprising race apart from two DNFs which included Kvyat who was picked twice. At this point of the season, places in standings change a lot. No one retained the spot held after previous race.

Grosjean, Ricciardo and Sainz all finishing should made forecasts more accurate as every driver now has at least one finish, even though Sainz still had a troubled race.

It would be cool if your forecast would also include the sum of the deviations from the median results for all the entries.

 

The deviations for Gasly for the first races would be the following:

Results 11 8 6 -> Median is 8

If someone went for Gasly in the first race, the difference to the median would be +3, 0 for the second race and -2 for China.

Bottas was picked by two members so they got perfect result. The most popular pick was Perez and he did have a good race too, although this time didn't get into the podium. Ricciardo was picked twice and he gave 20 points to f1paul and thegforcemaybewithyou. Tough luck.

Prediction based on driver averages:
mark f1 200,25
Brawn BGP 001 203,75
SpaceHorseParty 204
Costaz 205,25
Kev00 206,75
alekracing 206,75
 
Of course still a very close race. The actual leader KWSN - DSM has now used both Mercedes and both Ferrari drivers so the results are likely to get worse in upcoming races. It shows up here.
 
Prediction based on driver medians:
mark f1 203,5
Brawn BGP 001 208,5
SpaceHorseParty 210
Costaz 211
Makarias 211
 
The biggest thing changing here is the drivers with number of retirements or bad races. Kevin Magnussen bumps Makarias into top 5 as MAG's median is 13 and average 11. Other members are affected by this but not Makarias who had him in Australia where Magnussen was 6th.
 
Prediction based on WDC:
SpaceHorseParty 196
Brawn BGP 001 197
DutchQuickSilver 200
mark f1 202
alekracing 203
 
Having used Giovinazzi and Kvyat helps SpaceHorseParty in this, with both achieving good results compared to their rest of the season. But small points are not exactly helping here. Alex Albon is 15th in WDC having not been placed worse than 14th. Those who have used Albon look better.

Sainz and Leclerc were the most popular picks in Spanish GP. 8th place for the local hero was good considering he's driving for McLaren. 5th for Leclerc was quite normal position for him.

 

On the top and bottom of the picks, Hamilton was selected by f1paul and Barty, so the best possible result for them. Tough luck for alekracing who selected Norris.

 

The current standings and three mathematical forecasts. Note that the current leader is not on top of any despite hefty lead - that's what selecting two Mercedes, two Ferraris and Verstappen in first five races has done.

Monaco GP - Red Bull drivers were popular picks among with former RBR driver Ricciardo. No big shocks around their race but there was one for Leclerc, being the only retirement in the race. Brawn BGP 001 isn't happy and that caused a big drop in the forecasts too. On the midfield drivers, shout out to Costaz for Sainz and thequadge for Albon.
 
There was also one Hamilton pick that has to be mentioned - alekracing. So far Hamilton has been selected by at least one member in all races he has won - and no one picked him in Melbourne or Baku.
 
KWSN - DSM keeps the lead in current standings but all forecasts give different winner.

Kubica was the most popular pick in Canada, probably thanks to his win 11 years ago. Well, it ended up normal race for him as he was last finisher. Only two DNFs so not much help on the overall position. Meanwhile, Hamilton and Stroll were selected three times each and both achieved great results.

 

Championship leader KWSN - DSM picked Magnussen so this weekend closed the gap in front.

I added tie-breaker into the standings. Ricciardo's point-per-average would now give him 48 points for the season so the difference is counted to that number. Makarias is now the leader in two of the forecasts and 2nd behind Costaz in one because of tie-breaker.

Grosjean did a lot of damage in this round. Four players had selected home race hero who ended being only retirement of the race. Not a good race either for other team-mate Magnussen, Kvyat or Ricciardo who all ended up outside the points. 
 
Hamilton was picked once and compared to usual performances, GTA and scheivlak deserve credit for picking Sainz.

Austrian race was tough for many in this contest. From the top five drivers only Leclerc was selected and even he was selected just once, by thegforcemaybewithyou. On the other note, Haas guys were popular in this race and they ended 16th and 19th.

KWSN - DSM is back on the top for now, but Costaz looks best in forecasts.

Welp, the Haas boys have completely eliminated me from contention. Grosjean first to retire in France, now Magnussen first to retire in Britain. Good luck to everyone else!
