Well, the season has finally come to a close. It has been a long road, and I must say that I am very impressed with the excellent participation that we had in this competition. Thank you all for joining in and proving that there is a place in this world for the lazy b@stard ;) :up:. I will definitely be doing this again next year, so feel free to send me suggestions during the offseason as to who our target should be (assuming Yoong gets canned, of course!)

Here are the winners from this week's race in Japan:

Get Sirius

And here are the FINAL overall standings! Flying Panda is officially the overall champion because he had 3 "wins" (races where he guessed closest to the actual total) while Bjorn had just 1. Andre (int2str), I'm incredibly sorry, but I can't make any exceptions for you. I had to shoot down a couple of other guys already this year, including myself (yes, I'm so lazy that I actually forgot to submit a guess for my own competition one week). Like Hakkinen in Spain 2001, you drove a great race only to have your engine blow on the final lap.

I'm still working on the t-shirts. Bjorn, FP, and Fisi_2001, please contact me via PM so we can work out the details of getting you the shirts. Anyone else who wants one can also PM me, but you'll have to pay for 'em ;)

6th is very OK for me, had a pretty poor start iirc. I wonder how the results would have been if Spain was excluded, as Yoong got 0 laps due to the car failing instead of himself?

Looks like the results wouldn't have changed much.. Flying Panda would have won by 1 point, I'd have come second, but then Fisichella_2001 and Shays would have swapped places. If my calculations are correct.

12th not bad considering one god awful race where I put 0 and the elusive little bugger did 23 or something :D feeling reasonable confident of a top 10 in the combined now :D

tough on in2str really i wonder if Fischella 2001 really really wants that T shirt

Fell back in the end as I refused to predict anything other than a 0 in the last 3 races.
If only I didn't miss Australia :

Congratulations to the winner! Congratulations to myself for managing to make it into the top six. This competition was most fun and I look forward to next year. Let's hope and pray that Alex will be racing (well, driving a Formula One car, anyway) .

Now the real questions are:

Is Flying Panda a worthy champion?
Is he one of the Great? (well, he must be - he's the only one :lol: )
Can he make it two in a row?
Was int2str suffering from brain fade?

Mark my words, this competition will be a legend and a classic. Future F1 fans will go on discussing endlessly about the 2002 season HLWITTLY competition.

Hows that for a close finsih? Are paying attention Michael ?! :p
Many congratulations to my fellow victor, Bjorn, as well as Fisichella2001, shays and Get Sirius.
A great season by all.
Many, many, many comiserations to Andre. You worked hard to steal the lead off me going into the final rounds only to blow it away without lodging a guess as Suzuka. Damn. :(

2 words people. Anthony Davidson. ANTHONY BLOODY DAVIDSON. I would like to see what the results would have been without Hungary and Spa being counted.
"You screwed me again, Davidson" - I screamed at the TV as Anthouny beached it in the gravel at Spa.

I was leading from the Brazillian Grand Prix to the Italian GP, a total of 12 Grands Prix, and I believe my demise was Davidson. Nevertheless, I'm glad it was so close in the end, the pressure made watching the races more fun, and I would have hated to have been a Schumacher and ran away with it. (I wasnt very happy with the farce in Spain either, but this is a game for lazy bastards, so I'm not complaining:)).

And a special thanks to Toyoter for organizing it, and being generous enough to donte these special prizes. I'm looking foward to next year, where hopefully Alex gets to keep his seat, if not lets hope that the comp will be based around my favourite driver. The How Long Will It Take To Lap Verstappen Competition :D Please Mr. Stoddart !!!

Big thanks to Toyoter :clap: for a having such a great idea and, more to the point, for then following it through to the bitter end. It must have been a lot of work, but it was worth it - without it , 2002 would have been an even more desolate year competition-wise.

I am pleased to see that just like our man Alex, I came nowhere! Kinda fitting, that...

Next year? Well, if (and sadly it is only an IF) Minardi are racing, there will be a Minardi #2 driver who will be dead last. But I can't see anyone else doing that with the style and panache that Alex Yoong has brought to being the worst driver on the grid. So it just won't be the same....

I have a question for you: Since this is Alex Yoong and not Michael Schumacher that we're talking about...
shouldn't you be giving out the awards to those who finished not at the top but 19 through 22?

Awarding those who finished first just doesn't seem like the right way to handle a contest involving our man Yoong.

thank-you all.

Now a question for Locai.
Mt Locai, why do I have the suspicious feeling that you would not have proposed such an idea if you were no in 19th place yourself ? :lol:

why, by your logic, MuMu, Palmas and Mach4 sould be the 3 getting the shirts. :p

Woo Hoo...Top 10 finish...If I'm not mistaken, under Bernie's new system next year, that would be a points paying position...Send me the TV money...
Thanx much, Toyoter, for improving the season :clap:
Congrats F.P. :clap:
I'd love a shirt (enough to pay for it, even) but would somebody please translate "PM" for me?
Next year will be my year...

Okay, who will the spotlight be on this year??


Cristiano da Matta
Ralph Firman
Antonio Pizzonia
Justin Wilson

I am tempted to say da Matta, but I think the Toyota will be good enough to keep him out of this, and likewise the Jordan will surely be good enough to keep Firman from being lapped before the Minardi's are lapped, and Pizzonia will probably crash out before he gets lapped in most races, so that brings the focus back onto the Minardi boys.

I do expect Jos to give Wilson quite a touch up this year, possibly off track too :D , but with Jossy's loyal following everywhere, I can't help but think the competition will be much more lively if it is ol' Jossy we gotta predict on.

So what do you say Toyoter and other peeps? :)

Agreed Nik...its gotta be a Jos competition. It may be worth giving bonus points if someone predicts which lap he crashes on :up:

Mr. Toyoter already stated last year that this years competition will be based around the second Minardi of Jos 'The Boss' Verstappen.

Get ready for HLWITTLV !!!

A lot of questions going into the new season,
can FP2 defend his crown?
will Bjorn be able to win it after being 1 point off last season?
Will a rookie take the title?
perhaps a lesser known mid-fielder?

Only time will tell,
but one thing is for certain,
its going to be a long, exciting year of HLWITTLV action :D

The entry thread for Melbourne will be up sometime in the middle of this month. Make sure you don't miss it!

For those who are *still* waiting for the HLWITTLY T-shirts, it's not looking good, but I am still trying :up:.

I watched this comp. last year and I would like to participate this year! :up:
Is there also a comp. to see what lap he dumps it into the kitty litter?
