Let's try out something different this year and trade some shares throughout the year. The price of a driver will depend on the points he scores, a share will be worth the (average points for the last four races)x10. This means that the price will fluctuate a bit depending on the current driver form and of course DNFs or results that are positive or negative outliers.
The 2020 spreadsheet to follow the price evolution and portfolios: https://docs.google....92oKp_qZROikr8/
The starting price depends on the number of points the team scored in 2019. Mercedes for example scored 739/2/21 = 17.59 points per driver per race last year. Let's multiply by 10 and round to get a starting price of 176 for both Hamilton and Bottas. The price cannot be lower than 1.

After the first race, the price will be calculated individually for every driver. If Verstappen wins the first race, his new price will be
(3*99+250)/4 = 137 (three times the starting price plus 25 points times 10) / 4.
If Verstappen scores a second place in the second race, his new price will be (2*99+250+180)/4 = 157 after race 2.
You start with 200 credits and can shape your portfolio with that ahead of the first race. The only limitation: The maximum number of shares you can hold per driver is five.
For every round I'll publish the current prices and you decide how many shares you want to sell and buy to increase the worth of the portfolio.
The stock market opens now! Which teams will do better than last year, which driver will outperform his teammate? Can a team improve its' form over the season and score more points in the second half? Let's find out.
