This will be the place where I'll publish the interim results of the 2021 Silly Season Trophy, as news of contracts arrive.

 

First, I'll start with the situation as it was during the submission deadline (December 1). There were three confirmed contracts for 2021:

Assuming there will be no more than ten teams on the grid, the results were as follows:

Place Name             Points Exact Subm
  1   rodlamas          31.00   3     2 
  2   Marklar           31.00   3     4 
  3   Brawn BGP 001     31.00   3     5 
  4   GTA               31.00   3     6 
  5   Starchild         31.00   3     9 
  6   DutchQuicksilver  31.00   3    10 
  7   Grayson           31.00   3    11 
  8   noikeee           31.00   3    14 
  9   M2000-5           31.00   3    15 
      AVERAGE PICK      31.00   3       
 10   SpaceHorseParty   27.14   2     1 
 11   f1paul            27.14   2     3 
 12   scheivlak         27.14   2     7 
 13   Makarias          27.14   2    12 
 14   KWSN - DSM        27.14   2    13 
 15   Costaz            24.00   1     8 

As for the potential results, the initial situation was as follows:

Place Name             Points Exact Subm
  1   KWSN - DSM       139.86  19    13 
  2   rodlamas         135.43  20     2

  6   f1paul           131.43  19     3 
  7   noikeee          130.57  20    14 
  8   Marklar          128.43  20     4 
  9   Brawn BGP 001    128.14  20     5

Update #1: Leclerc confirmed at Ferrari

 

The first update came shortly before Christmas, as Ferrari confirmed Charles Leclerc's contract was extended until the end of 2024.

 

This was in no way a surprise, and every player placed Leclerc at Ferrari. So, everyone gets five points:

 15     0 Costaz            29.00 + 5.00   2     8 

While nobody's potential points are changed:

Update #2: Verstappen confirmed at Red Bull

 

Although an important piece in the puzzle that is the 2021 grid, Verstappen was mostly expected to stay at Red Bull. These expectations were confirmed in early January, when Red Bull announced the extension of his contract until the end of 2023.

 

noikeee was the only one not to place him at Red Bull, and loses one place in the standings for that:

 15     0 Costaz            34.14 + 5.14   3     8 

He also drops down a few places in the potential standings:

Update #3: Norris confirmed at McLaren

 

This really should have been a part of the initial points calculation, but I admit I used Wikipedia to check what was confirmed when. Norris's contract expires at the end of 2022, and that was announced last August.

 

Most players expected him to stay at McLaren, anyway:

scheivlak and f1paul lose out on big points for Bottas or Alonso joining McLaren:

Update #4: Vettel to leave Ferrari

 

Ferrari's announcement that Sebastian Vettel would leave Ferrari at the end of 2020 really got the silly season going.

 

The confirmed points do not change, but the potential ones do. The players who expected Vettel to stay at Ferrari (and there weren't many) are the biggest losers. Despite that, KWSN - DSM still has the most potential points.

Update #5: Ricciardo confirmed at McLaren

 

Soon after Ferrari's announcement, the expectation was that either Ricciardo or Sainz would get the vacant seat. McLaren announced they would replace Sainz with Ricciardo in 2021 and beyond, thus all but confirming Ferrari's line-up as well.

 

Nobody saw that coming, as every player placed Sainz at McLaren. However, everyone gets two points, as everyone expected Ricciardo to stay in F1 in 2021.

Large swings in the potential points standings, as this not only takes up the only remaining McLaren seat, but also messes with everyone's plans for Ricciardo.

Update #6: Sainz confirmed at Ferrari

 

It didn't take long after that for Ferrari to confirm Carlos Sainz would join the team in 2021. While many players expected Vettel to leave Ferrari, nobody guessed Sainz would be the one to replace him. Six players had picked Ricciardo for the seat, and one each for Hamilton, Hülkenberg, Norris, and Ocon.

 

Again, two points for correctly predicting Sainz would remain in F1:

Update #7: Alonso confirmed at Renault

 

Fernando Alonso surprised some people by joining Renault. For years, Alonso was linked to every open seat in the paddock, and now it's finally come true.

Update #8: Latifi confirmed at Williams

 

After tinkering with their line-ups for the last few years, Williams have opted for continuity and announced both drivers will continue driving for them in 2021. Russell's contract status had already been confirmed some time ago, so this update only reflects the news that Latifi will drive for Williams next year.

Most players placed Latifi at Williams. Brawn BGP 001 was the only one not to do so, and drops from third place to thirteenth. He had selected an unknown driver for that seat.

Potential points standings are affected slightly more. This is because some players expected Russell to leave Williams, so they could have scored more points if their alternate choice joined the team.

Update #9: Bottas confirmed at Mercedes

 

While many expected Mercedes to make some changes to their driver line-up, they've retained Valtteri Bottas for 2021. Change is still possible, though, as Hamilton is yet to extend his contract.

Update #10: Pérez to leave Racing Point/Aston Martin

 

Although he had a contract for 2021, Sergio Pérez announced this week that he would leave the current Racing Point team at the end of the season. This reverses some points that were already counted in the standings.

Somehow, the potential points calculation is not affected. I bet there's something wrong with the way I calculate it, but I don't have time to check it right now.

Update #11: Vettel confirmed at Aston Martin

 

We didn't have to wait long after Pérez's announcement to hear official word on his replacement: it will be none other than four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel, in a long-rumored move.

Not even Quasimodo could have predicted this way back last November. Nearly half of all players expected Vettel to retire or take a sabbatical, and lose out on some points.

Now, the potential points drop – I suspect this, in part, shows the effect of Pérez leaving the team. I'll have to check my code later. We see the first players drop below 100 points in the potential standings, but, there's still a large gap between the best confirmed points performers and the worst potential points performers.

Update #12: Grosjean and Magnussen to leave Haas

 

A little more than a week ago, Haas made the announcement that one of the longest-tenured driver pairings currently in F1 – Grosjean and Magnussen – would leave at the end of the season after four years together. Grosjean had been with Haas since their first race way back in 2016.

Everyone placed Magnussen at Haas, so everyone loses points. The biggest losers (Starchild, Grayson, and noikeee) also picked Grosjean for Haas.

Update #13: Gasly confirmed at AlphaTauri

 

After a great season (including a win!), and despite a free seat at Red Bull, Pierre Gasly will continue at AlphaTauri in 2021.

Gasly's situation seemed a lot more gloomy this time last year, and some (including me) expected him to leave F1. Starchild takes the lead, having been one of eight players to pick Gasly for AlphaTauri. DutchQuicksilver has the same amount of points, but is second because he submitted his prediction later. Marklar drops from first to fifth, as he placed Gasly at Renault – this has now become a popular rumor.

GTA takes the lead in the potential points standings, having been one of the players to correctly predict that Gasly would stay. The player with the least potential points (SpaceHorseParty) is slowly, but surely approaching the player with the most confirmed points (Starchild).

Update #14: Giovinazzi and Räikkönen confirmed at Alfa Romeo

 

Despite rumors that Mick Schumacher would join the team his father was driving for before Formula One, it was announced a few days ago that Alfa Romeo would retain Antonio Giovinazzi and Kimi Räikkönen in 2021.

Grayson and f1paul have won the jackpot, as the only two players to predict both drivers would stay in their current team. DutchQuicksilver takes the lead, having chosen Shwartzman as Räikkönen's teammate and Giovinazzi for Haas. Meanwhile, former leader Starchild drops to third place, having picked Giovinazzi and Shwartzman for Alfa Romeo, and predicted Räikkönen would retire.

GTA still has the largest potential of all players (at least, if we think all unconfirmed predictions are equally probable). rodlamas and Costaz lose a lot of points, having been the only two players to expect both Giovinazzi and Räikkönen to leave F1.

Update #15: Mazepin confirmed at Haas

 

This has been an eventful week, and among other things, we've heard two announcements from Haas. The first was on Monday, when they announced Nikita Mazepin would join the team on a multi-year deal.

Mazepin was picked by nobody, so f1paul and Costaz score 5 points each for predicting Haas would sign an unknown driver. This allows f1paul to leap into second place (less than a quarter of a point behind DutchQuicksilver), and Costaz to move up from last place, leaving me in the dust.

It seems obvious to me now, but the potential points don't include unknown drivers in the calculation. I will fix this later and hopefully edit this post to show the real potential points.

Update #16: Schumacher confirmed at Haas

 

Haas didn't wait long to confirm what many had already rumored – Mick Schumacher will also join in 2021, making it an all-rookie lineup for the team.

Schumacher was picked by 9 out of 15 players, and every one of them placed him at Alfa Romeo. Shwartzman, his colleague and rival at the Ferrari Driver Academy, was a more popular pick for Haas when the picks were made. Curiously, the current leaders did not pick Schumacher at all, allowing Marklar and M2000-5 to approach them within 1.5 points.

As discussed in the previous post, the potential points calculation might not show the real values. Nevertheless, as more and more seats are taken, the potential standings order starts to resemble the actual standings more and more.

 

There are four more seats to be filled: one each at Mercedes, Red Bull, Racing Point, and AlphaTauri. The only two players not to pick both Hamilton for Mercedes and Stroll for Racing Point are noikeee and Costaz, so in all likelihood, the winner of this game will be decided by Red Bull.

Update #17: Stroll confirmed at Aston Martin

 

The FIA released the first version of the 2021 entry list, and Lance Stroll is listed as an Aston Martin driver in it. It is by no means a surprise, but it – finally – a clear enough confirmation that allows us to count those points. Interestingly, the entry list also lists Lewis Hamilton as a Mercedes driver, although we are yet to hear news about his contract. Considering that Hamilton's contract situation and negotiations have been a lot more public than Stroll's, I'll wait until we get an official announcement on Hamilton before counting points for him.

As mentioned before, Costaz was the only player not to place Stroll at Aston Martin. However, I said that he didn't pick Stroll at all – I was wrong, he was placed at Alfa Romeo.

The changes are, of course, minimal in the potential standings as well. SpaceHorseParty and Costaz can no longer win this game, assuming there are no changes to the already confirmed drivers or last-minute replacements (e.g. due to injuries).

Update #18: Tsunoda confirmed at AlphaTauri

 

Earlier this week, AlphaTauri announced that Yuki Tsunoda would join their team in 2021, thus becoming the third rookie on the grid. He has risen through the junior formulae at a swift pace, having graduated from Japanese F4 in 2018, F3 in 2019, and now F2 in 2020. It's therefore not a big surprise that nobody picked him for their 2021 grid – although KWSN - DSM did pick Tsunoda's compatriot Nobuharu Matsushita for a place in AlphaTauri.

Two players benefit the most: M2000-5 and Grayson. Both of them expected AlphaTauri to pick an unknown (i.e. unpicked) driver, and they receive 5 points for that. This moves them up to 1st and 2nd place in the rankings, with just two seats to go. Tsunoda's selection also helps the last two players in the standings, SpaceHorseParty and Costaz.

Biggest change in the potential points comes for KWSN - DSM, who missed out on 14 points for being the only one to pick Matsushita for AlphaTauri. Grayson now leads the potential points standings. Unlike M2000-5, he picked Albon for the vacant Red Bull seat.

Update #19: Pérez confirmed at Red Bull

 

For the first time in some years, one of the Red Bull seats will be taken by a driver who was not previously affiliated with Red Bull. That driver is Sergio Pérez, the most recent new Formula One winner.

Every single player expected him to stay at Racing Point/Aston Martin. Therefore everyone gets 2 points, as he found a seat elsewhere.

The confirmed and potential points have nearly converged, as there is only one seat left. Nearly all players would get the most points if Hamilton continued at Mercedes.

At this point, M2000-5 seems like the odds-on favorite to win this game. However, Hamilton's contract is still unsigned, and we have a higher-than-usual chance of a driver skipping the first race of the season due to an illness.
