First of all, I'm sorry for the delay, but sometimes I have to see the race taped on VCR and I can't "touch" Internet until I see it or I'll spoil the results!

3 Ghostrider 6
8 dynamite7 6
10 Viss1 6

2 Hi Test 2

SIX perfect scores!! :eek: Congratulations to Estwald , Ghostrider , dynamite7 , Viss1 , SeanValen and gerry nassar . Well, one can say podium was easy... except Mr. Barrichello beated MSCH all the weekend fair and squared... Congratulations at everyone of those "perfects".

On the other hand, look at the poor position from BERNIE. Is not it tender he guessed Rubinho for a win? (His guess was rb-rs-ms) Did not he know Ferrari contract, him among all persons? :blush: :p

What can I say? Estwald and gerry nassar are so dominant as Ferrari, but I wonder what sort of contract they have: is Estwald obligued to let pass gerry at the end of the season? Or is it the other way? They amass 20 points what means an average of 5 points per GP !

By the way, it is interesting to note the different strategies they use: gerry nassar was the last guesser, late in the night. He subscribed to AtlasF1 news service and carefully checked every news about A1 facts, trainings, etc. He went on to every F1-live, formula1.com, babesf1.com, etc, websites that could throw info about the incoming GP. And he computed it and he got a perfect score!

But Estwald is different, he was the very first guesser. He doesn't need any info: he knows the answer by intuition. He doesn't need any expensive subscription ;) to know how to guess. Somehow he thought Schuey could win even if Barry had pole, sheer intuition! They are both amazing and I suppose we have to learn more about them :)

But if they think they have already the WDC wrapped... sorry, I mean the game wrapped, they are in self-deceiving mode because below them are fisichella_2001 , Makarias , dynamite7 and SeanValen with 18 points, and they are a formidable pack of hounds who will not hesitate to even guess a DC win if they think it is necessary thing to do.

This week I'll be polite and I will not speak about MAX & BERNIE, better they go up or I'll introduce a BALLESTRE bot instead!

As always, I thanks everybody and I hope to see you in two weeks time. Don't despair, in Monaco the track is very narrow and Barry will not be able to let Michael pass even if he wanted to do. :rolleyes:

Goodbye, my friends! :wave:

Excellent post there Schummy!! :lol: Interesting observations about the different strategies used by Estwald and gerry nassar. :up:

Those two are very hard competitors and I also have guys like SeanValen in front of me, a very tough task to beat those guys, they make few mistakes, but I will try to find some "dark horses" and make up some places. :cool:

Thanx Schummy! :up:

We will have to respect you a lot, LB! With that kind of company I wonder if your surname is Richards and your name is David :) :cool:

BTW, what sad is I systematically forget to guess in my own game! It is not to be neutral :rolleyes: It is just I'm sad ;) Of course, I also is useful to avoid be embarrased by results...

Schummy - Just wondering what the "*" indicates. I have one in place of my 6 for Austria in the Total table.

You are right, Viss1!

It's an error, as showed in Austria's result you got 6 points and thus your total is 18 points, that puts you in the "pack of hounds" group :), just below the leaders.

The Total Score table must be:

Name BRA SMA SPA AUT Total
Estwald 4 6 4 6 20
gerry nassar 4 6 4 6 20
fisichella_2001 6 4 3 5 18

dynamite7 4 5 3 6 18
SeanValen 3 5 4 6 18
Viss1 4 4 4 6 18
Ghostrider 3 5 3 6 17
JensonFan 3 6 3 4 16
MAX 4 4 4 4 16

(Note tie breaker rules among equal scores)

Thanks for the post and congratulations! You are a steady scorer and if you get a good result in a forthcoming GP you could reach the top :cool:

Just behind the leaders, I hope to get 6 points at Monaco but it won't be easy! Generally this competition is easy as there's only 6 drivers who stand a chance of a podium, and only 4 who are regularly challenging. Monaco should be tougher, because in recent years we have seen the likes of Panis, Barrichello (in the Stewart), Fisichella and Irvine on the podium, proving it is a driver's circuit. The attrition rate is always quite high aswell. Will anyone have the nerve to leave Schumi or Montoya off their lists this time - they are due a DNF!
