Atlas Voting Championship 2002: Malaysia
Posted 17 March 2002 - 15:08
Remember to consider the whole weekend, not just the race.
Step 1 - GP takes place & voting opens
Step 2 - Everybody votes for the three drivers they genuinely think did well in the GP. One top driver and two running up. If I feel you are simply voting for the fav driver each time I'll put you on the blacklist for a while. (I won't be voting myself, to make it fairer) Also not arguing over somebody elses votes or again on the blacklist you go. Posts should be along the lines of:
...Top Drive: Driver X - The one guy who impressed you most over the GP Weekend
...Runner Ups : Driver Y, Driver Z - The next two guys who impressed you.
Make it clear which Schumacher you mean, and which driver is Top Drive. Don't use the abbreviation MS without further clarification, as it could mean both Michael Schumacher and Mika Salo.
Step 3- Voting will close in about a week
Step 4 - I'll add up the total number of votes. 2 pts for a top vote and 1 for a runner-up vote. This will produce a 'race result'. Should drivers have the same voting score then I will split them by who has had the most Top Votes. If that fails then simply in race result order.
Step 5 - The drivers will then be awarded championship points on a 10-6-4-3-2-1 system.
Rate the race
Please rate the race from 0-10, using the following guide.
Quality of race
This should be a reflection of how good the race was, not how much you liked the results. Please don't give it a one or two just because driver X failed to win the championship. Think about how much it had your pulse racing and you guessing at what the end result was going to be. Use the guide below to help, and think carefully. Try to compare it not just to the last few races, but all the grand prix you've ever watched. Votes of 9 and 10 should be quite rare.
10 The best race I've ever seen
9 Contender for the best race of the last few seasons
8 Contender for the best race of the season
7 Brilliant race, I was on the edge of my seat for a lot of the race
6 Better than average, more than a few on the edge the seat moments
5 An average race, nothing spectacular but worth watching
4 Below average, too few exciting moments
3 Well, there was one or two moments of interest
2 That was completely predictable
1 I struggled to watch it all the way through
0 I slept through most of it
Satisfaction with the results
Please also rate the race in terms of how satisfied you are with the results. This one
should be based on if driver X wins the championship or not! Also factors such controversy
over DQ's that sour the event should be considered.
10 All the right results, and done with style
9 All the right results, if not in the best manner
8 Mostly the right results
7 Mostly the right results with a bit of luck
6 Some of drivers/teams I liked did well
5 Neither happy nor sad with the results
4 My likes didn't quite manage to do well
3 My likes did quite badly
2 My likes did quite badly and my dislikes did good
1 All the wrong drivers/teams did very well but I'll give them credit for doing it well
0 All the wrong drivers/teams did very well and the right ones did badly
Note: people who are on the Voting Championship blacklist can still participate in Rate the race.
Race rating averages for Australia were 6.54 for quality of racing and 6.46 for satisfaction with the results.

Button - great race, should have been 3rd. Good dice with JPM
Bernoldi - for overtaking MS in an arrows!
race 6 - lead race not brilliant but a lot more action down the order [even if it didn't get shown on tv!]
results - 8.

Quality of Race: 7

Top: Montoya, who gains this position only due to the unfair treatment gave by the powers-that-be.
Runner-ups: Jason Button, what a shame;
Enrique "The Un-overtakable" Bernoldi
Quality - 5
Satisfaction - 8 (without Massa, would be 6)
A pity I can't vote for Ralf or Massa, but I sense this two will face other oportunities in the next races.

2. E Bernoldi
3. R Schumacher
Quality - 6
Satisfaction - 3
Posted 17 March 2002 - 16:36
Runners-up: Salo, Ralf
Quality: 4, this might have something to do with the bad tv coverage, but it wasn't too exciting anyway.
Satisfaction: 2, both Finns in trouble. Would've been a zero if Ferrari had won.
Posted 17 March 2002 - 16:52
Honorable mention: Heidfeld. did well despite being almost invisible.
Posted 17 March 2002 - 17:23
Sub: Ralf Schumacher, Jenson Button
Quality: 8 (perhaps influenced by the excellent Bernie coverage)
Posted 17 March 2002 - 17:33
Runners up: Ralf Schumacher and Jenson Button
Quality: 5 (abysmal coverage has a large part in that. If there was anything exciting going on anywhere on the track, I certainly didn't see it.)
Result: 7 (Both Saubers in the points is good , both maccas out is bad.. )

2. Button - he deserved the podium
Quality - 5
Satisfaction - 4
Posted 17 March 2002 - 22:47
2nd: Ralf Schumacher
3rd: Juan Pablo Montoya
Quality of Race: 6
Satisfaction: 6 - Williams 1,2....Fantastic, but Jenson deserved so much more :
Posted 17 March 2002 - 23:43
Offcourse I wanted to put Ralf but Im sure he will make it here soon so I just couldnt not give it to Bernoldi who gave us an entertaining duel with MS!!
Honourable mentions : Mcnish, Heidfeld, Massa, Raikonnen.
Quality of Race: 7 as it could have been much better had JPM not got his penalty and Raikonnen not had the blown engine
Result satisfaction: 8 - good for the championship although I would have prefered the following order - JPM, Ralf, Jenson, Heid, Mcnish, Massa
Posted 18 March 2002 - 17:09
Runner-up: Montoya. Did everything right except beat his teammate, plus came back from the penalty.
3rd.: Button. Must have liked the car - hopefully on his way back.
Quality of Race: 5. No real pulse-heightening battles. McLarens both exploded, eliminating any chance of a major battle for the lead. Montoya penalty was unjustified and elimiated chance of a Monty vs. Ralf battle. Coverage was the worst I've seen in a while.
Satisfaction: 5. Williams did well, but Monty got an unjustified penalty. The Ferraris and Macs will have to do better if I am going to do well in any F1 pools ;)

2 Allan McNish
3 Ralf Schumacher
JPM and MS lose out cos of the pissing contest - salo would have been there had the car lasted
Race 5 - was OK lost a lot at the first corner
Result 4 - not good but atleast MS didn't win - neither did DC, Kimi or JPM though, Heidfeld got points McNish didn't
Posted 19 March 2002 - 01:33
2) JPM (would have gotten the top spot, if not for his share in the first corner)
3) Jenson Button
Posted 19 March 2002 - 02:40
2) Button , is showing he gets the speed
3) Bernoldi, great overtaking move on Schummy
Race 5 , not much overtakings , not much fighting , TV coverage was not so good (the worst was the pratice, when they showed cars coming back to the pits instead of cars in Flying laps!)
Result 5 , JPM didn't win , the Macs didn't finish and Massa didn't get his car setup all righ (if he did he would outpace Heidfeld - he only needs time to get a little more experience) . The good point is that M Schummy didn't win!
Posted 19 March 2002 - 03:33
RU's. Button and kimi
jpm and ms both did well to come back from the start, but i cant pick one and leave the other out.. so ill go with kimi for the 2nd RU. was showing dc how its done till the macs got probs.
race. 6 i guess. wasnt a total yawn, for the first half atleast.
satisfaction. 7. happy that ms and jpm got as many points as they did, unhappy that they didnt get more.
happy to see button do well, unhappy he dropped a few at the end.
happy kimi was showing dc up, unhappy he didnt score....

2) Michael Schumacher (even a not so great race by his standards, a very good one, driving with no front wing, making up positions, fast when he needed to go fast, took care of the car when he heard Rubens's engine went, speeded up when Button had problems, got to the podium:up:
3) Button( one stopper, made the race work, fought for positions, defended well, very confident 4th place, even if he missed the podium:up:
I would of added Ralf, just felt he was gifted the win due to MS and JPM's problems, if he had won it with those guys in with a shout as well, then would be awsome, but its not his fault they had problems, but still made his race easier, gambled with strategy, turned out very good, but not the best performance, not his fault, just down to fate sometimes, to provide the ingredients for to win in the best way.
