Welcome to submit your entries for the 22nd season of PTPC! With 23 races expected this season, there's 2323 points to distribute.
The points scaling system introduced last year worked out fine, so I've decided to make that the permanent way to account for entries that deviate from the points target.
I still hope that entrants at least attempt to make a correct entry, to make direct comparisons easier and to reduce my workload a little.

This is what you do:
***Post a reply here with your guess on how the WDC final standings of this year will look. There are 2323 (23*101) points to be distributed. Bonus points for fastest laps are ignored.

*Points are assigned to specific drivers, not "the second Ferrari seat" or anything like that (meaning that points placed on one driver aren't transferred to his replacement in case of a driver change).

*You can edit your entry as much as you like until the deadline, which is at the start of the first free practice of the first GP of this season.

*Using a spreadsheet to get the points sum right is really helpful, your initial points allocation is likely to add up to much more due to the widespread preseason optimism syndrome.

This is how points are scored:
* If your entry doesn't add up to the points target of 2323, your entry will be scaled to make it so. After a rounding off process, scaled entries too will contain only integer values.
* If scheduled races are cancelled, all entries will be scaled down accordingly.

*** You gain one point in the competition for each F1-championship point that you've placed right, which means:
-If a driver has a higher final WDC score than the amount of points you've placed on him, you'll get as many points from this driver as you've placed on him.
-If the driver scores less than you've trusted him to do, you'll only get as many points as he has managed to score.

An example: if players A and B have placed 130 and 150 points respectively on Ricciardo and Ricciardo scores 134 points in the WDC, the players will score 130 and 134 points respectively for Ricciardo. Player A would then on the other hand have placed twenty more points than player B on other drivers, where they may have come to better use.

The competition is open for entries and changes to these until first free practice starts at Melbourne.

This is my preliminary prediction, which might change before the season start:

Driver        Points
Hamilton      401
Verstappen    330
Bottas        231
Perez         220
Ricciardo     180
Alonso        155
Norris        150
Vettel        145
Leclerc       144
Sainz         105
Stroll        100
Ocon           80
Gasly          46
Tsunoda        26
Räikkönen       4
Giovinazzi      4
Russell         2
Latifi          0
Mazepin         0
Schumacher      0
If you think a driver will score zero points, you don't have to put him in your list.

If you think some driver will come in as a replacement during the season and score points, feel free to place points on that driver too. Again: points guesses are not transferred to replacement drivers from the one being replaced!

Good luck!

Nah that's automatic by the forum depending on whichever programming language it thinks we're writing "code" in  :D that's what code tags are for, for writing source code

When posting click the one circled

The put your text inside the box, forget the rest of what you see, just the box, then press ok and you are done.

I promise that it works

My guess is depend on you typing it in the box, or cutting / pasting from a document - I cut and past from UltraEdit, after doing the tabulation in excel, there could be some formatting carrying over from there - Since I do not care about the colors have never really delved into that aspect. - You can see how the text in my sample is black, I typed that in there.

Pretty tough this year. The top four and the midfield are both difficult to predict!
 
I've gone for a bit of a gamble on the idea that the Aston Martin drivers will be disappointing and that Alpha Tauri will match them for points... If Vettel's on the podium this weekend then I've pretty much lost already!
