Last round... ! (just in case someone didn't realize it :p )

Wow! I almost forgot to open this thread! :eek: The most important of them all!

(The usual useless comentary about the circuit)
Suzuka (or Suzukalextric as it is apparently called in Japanese) is the only F1 track that isn't clockwise or anticlockwise, and it is not a zen phrase. And above it, it is aone of the great tracks we are lucky to have still.

I'm afraid to say, but I must remind it, Suzy is one of the favourites venues of MS : Therefore expect the worst scenary ;) I propose a new game for this special GP: "How many cars will get lapped by Schuey?"

Once we agreed first position will go to the german with an odd :cat: number of WDC, you will have to guess the last two podium positions, as usual. It's to say: MS - RB - XX.

But don't become disheartened, perhaps Monty can get Full and do a great race, after all he is talented and the japanese track rewards great drivers. Or maybe Ralfie, Kimi or Dave (of "2001, Odysey in space" fame) can perform well and end the season with a surprise. LOL, I'm luring you to get risky in the guesses to make it more interesting ;)

I don't want to sound ominous, but certain semigod player which name begins with "ge" and ends with "sar" has already done his guess with a "steamrolleresque" self confidence (I'd be the same if I had had an average of 4.5 :eek: :drunk: in the game).

So, come on, guess bravely and become a SIXY person ;) with a perfect score, as did Chrissy Boy, JensonFan, RAD, LB, Zawed, Schuting Star and the top ten classified! And if it goes wrong at least die heroicly while going down on flames as did... well, many others ;)

----------------------------Warning! The Usual Boring Part Ahead! ---------------------------

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.

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

Maybe I will have to travel this weekend and Monday... If it happens, I'll try my best to do the calculations on Monday night (I have European time zone, so it can be better for residents in the Americas). Obviously, the final winner can begin to celebrate his/her victory as soon as race ends ;)

Thank you all, and, please, have a good weekend, inside and outside F1 :love: ;)

Bye! :wave:

Well, as I'm doing so badly anyway I'll go for Rubens crashing out and the two Williams having another first lap disagreement.

Well, I should make an off-the-wall pick in the hopes that the favorites will crash out and I will leapfrog over the other 3 people, but instead I'll be relatively conservative, secure in the knowledge that unexpected podium results have only happened twice this year...
