Well, we have to pass the page from team orders in Austria to... team orders in Monte Carlo. In Monte you need two things: (1) To go first in the queue of (racing) cars, (2) Don't have mechanical/driver failure. It probably eliminates people as Coulthard, Irvine or Sato, for different reasons. At least, in this race MSCH will not need to Shuey-chop anybody as the track doesn't allow overtakes anyway.

Please, make a guess on podium result in this slot-car race and fight the might of our Leaders in this competition.

Now, the usual explanation of scoring:

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.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

I remind you our present situation in table of scores. Estwald and gerry nassar go on with their fascinating fight for the lead with a perfect tie with 20 points. Recently I have a dream about Estwald and gerry nassar were actually the same person! Maybe a case of schizophrenia?;)

Following them we have got a collection of top players: fisichella_2001, Makarias, dynamite7, SeanValen and Viss1 with 18 points. The competition has warmed up since I said winner would get a free access to pre-race Ferrari's briefings.

Just now, Max & Bernie are not threatening the leaders, as they have 16 and 15 points each one (Bernie apparently hindered by not overtaking Max according to internal FIA team orders).

Thanks to everybody here and I hope we will meet again after the race

PS: Ghostrider has "voted" already thru Private Message, because he had troubles accessing Internet in these days. His/her(?) guess is: MSCH - RSCH - DC . Anyway, if (s)he wants to change in time the guess, (s)he can do, of course The same for everybody: you can re-do your guess always before "official" deadline (1 hour before race). I beg you don't change guesses a lot, though ;)

Finally! I was already planning to go home (from job, where I have a I-net access).

IMHO, it will be nice to open this game a bit earlier each week.

Now a betting: MS-RS-RB

Thanks
