The 25th season of PTPC is open for entries! Enter it and you'll have a chance to become a celebrated winner much like Muhammad Ali, Adam Malysz or Rüdiger Falke.
With a ridiculous 24 races expected this season, there's 2424 points to distribute. Only top ten race finish points count, not points gained from FLs or quali races.
Points scaling still applies, so if a race is cancelled or surprisingly added all entries will be adjusted at great cost of my precious time and possibly also human lives.
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 2424 (24*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 2424, 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 the first race weekend of the season.

This is my preliminary prediction, which should change before the season start because right now I have no clue:

Driver        Points
Verstappen    485
Perez         242
Leclerc       230
Sainz         212
Norris        210
Hamilton      202
Alonso        185
Russell       179
Piastri       136
Ocon           74
Gasly          72
Stroll         65
Albon          38
Ricciardo      37
Tsunoda        17
Bottas         16
Hülkenberg      9
Zhou            7
Magnussen       6
Sargeant        2
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!

No, I moved some around and changed points, so sort of missed moving Albon, I am also iffy about what I am guessing, may change for the 3rd time.

Welcome to the game all, especially the newbies! :)

 

A couple of adjustments:

 

*LB's entry is the only one that doesn't add up to 2424, it adds up to 2414. According to his specific advice above, Max is adjusted up from 496 to 506 points.

 

*In an exceptional case I'm willing to allow a slight change in M2000-5's entry past the deadline! Since the maximum points possible to score for a driver in this game is 600, guessing 603 points is unrealistic. I'm adjusting the Verstappen guess down to a still brave 600 points and let M2000-5 place the overshooting 3 points elsewhere, with a deadline set at the start of qualifying tomorrow. I hope everyone is OK with this.

I must look pretty dumb right now  :rotfl:

 

I got fooled by last year's points. I thought that Max can do a tad better than last year's 575 points, so 603 it was. But those 575 included sprint and FL points... Anyway I don't think that Max will score much less points than 600. The remaining 3 points go to Piastri. 

 

I hope you all agree with my change.

 

Cheers,

 

Mat

Even though we don't even know what the pecking order looks like, I feel that I'm not going to win this year. My guess seems way too conservative. The winner usually gets something more right than what the other players were able to foresee, while I just took last year's points tally and adjusted modestly based on data from testing. My most brave prediction was that Alpine will suck compared to last year but it's in line with what half of the other players have guessed as well.

Strangely it will most times take until race 17 before I start questioning myself, and my odds of winning.

It usually takes me until about the end of the first Q1 of the season...
