Guess the podium: Austria edition
Posted 10 May 2002 - 03:28
Anyway, A1 is not bad at all for present standards, with some good action in previous races. And we have the aditional bonus of Mike seems unable to win here Can you predict the unpredictable? Moreover, would you dare to forecast a non Ferrari-Williams-McLaren podium?
Let me remind you the scoring system:
It consists in guessing the three firsts in F1 races. You do an ordered guess (i.e. MS-JPM-RS) and a score is given according to real podium results. The scoring system is as explained here:
Suppose you do the guess MS-JPM-RS.
If MS is 1st, 3 points
if MS is 2nd, 2 points
if MS is 3rd, 1 point
If JPM is 1st, 2 points
if JPM is 2nd, 2 points
if JPM is 3rd, 1 point
If RS is 1st, 2nd or 3rd, 1 point
It another driver makes a podium position, it doesn't give any points.
The key for this system is not "gambling" on the exact position but to do a realistic shot at the relative merit of each driver in that GP. For instance, you are not penalized for JPM being first and not 2nd, as the penalty comes by not scoring with MS's first position.
In order to have a reference I will enter two "dummy" players: Bernie and Max (the names were chosen randomly ). Bernie always guesses the firsts three qualifyers, and Max always guesses the firsts three classified in WDC current points table. Can you outscore B&M?
Any guess can be done before one hour before the official first start of the race. We will use the "official" Atlas Forum clock to resolve close entries.
In Spain LB did a perfect score! And Estwald and gerry nassar are having a Prost-Senna fight tied in first position with 14 points. Near them are looming fisichella_2001 and "Carlos Sainz" Makarias with 13 points... but our resident bots Bernie and Max have got 12 points and they have the weight of FIA with them
Thank you to everybody and I'm looking forward to your guesses! Please don't let me down!;)
