Delicious irony that your thread title describes it as a big! laugh

Oops, finger fumble. It might turn out to be a big bug though!

I won't spoil it for those who've yet to watch it, but I have a question about predictions. What does "Nearly" mean? Both times the prediction was one out (for the quali). Do I get a point for that?

As Ade says, you get 5 points but only for having a near-miss on the final podium position, ie you predict a podium place but the driver finishes in one of the other two places. Nothing for coming close with a quali prediction - as I well know....teeth 2

Cheers John.

I haven't a clue what to do, not made changes, now don't know if I should.crookquestion

You're not the only one, mate - I've made changes and I'm now wondering whether I should have...

I'll let you know Sunday...wink 2

Contact numbers etc are available on the Subs FAQ page, Tim. I've just checked your member page and indeed it is only a 5 digit number. Beth looks into this page frequently so I'm sure she will be able to assistthumbs up

Am I right in thinking its free unlimited changes for anybody until the second GP?

Yep, until the game locks before Bahrein quali startsthumbs up

I'm gonna need every minute until then...teeth 2

Well done, Roos!

Meanwhile, much like Ferrari I suspect, I'm off for a think.......face 23

It is very disappointing to find that this year F1 is not live on free TV in UK. It's such a pain to avoid news programmes for hours to avoid hearing the results before it's broadcast free. I wonder whether forum members have found any cheap ways to watch live?

I agree, kc, it's really irritating! However, living in France means I have a second sat dish aimed at Astra 1 (19.2E). RTL.DE broadcasts all quali and races live (ignoring the random beer adverts that crop up just when things get interestingface 22). I turn the sound down and get the commentary from R5 Live Sports Extra on the internet. The transmitted pictures are shared by the TV broadcasters and the commentary teams so the only mis-match can be the different times each signal arrives. A couple of years ago, the commentary was a second or two ahead of the pictures so I tended to hear what had happened before I saw it...teeth 2

As an aside, Formula 1 TV are providing an online live service in many countries (UK is an exception - Sky saw to that) so, as it is available in France, I had a look to see what it would cost. €189.99 for the season's races - far too much. Out of interest, I looked at all the other European countries - surprise, surprise, with the exception of Switzerland, they are all €64.99 for the seasonface 19

I queried it with Formula 1 TV and this was their reply:
I understand your point of view Peter. But commercial, legal and tax considerations dictate subscription price points in each country. Stay tuned on the official website and check constantly for any future updates

So German RTL it is then...

Such a shock and very sad news about Charlie Whiting. It's often said that no-one is irreplaceable but F1 certainly have a job on their hands to fill the gap he leaves....sad

Yes John, the front wings seem narrower and more compact than before.

I watched Magnusson following Norris very closely in the stadium section towards the end of the lap for a couple of laps and thought he was just trying to hassle the youngster.

However, he said later that day that he'd been assessing whether the changes had improved the ability to follow a car closely and he was very positive. Bodes well for the season if it lessens the problems in recent years. where a following car had to back off to get around the corner....

I too would be tempted to upgrade, Robin, for the fun of it but, with my track record, no-one would ever believe I was playing it by the book...teeth 2teeth 2

It's a matter of honour - if you agree to not gain any advantage over the other basic players, then that's good enough for methumbs up

ISTR John mentioned this last year and one of the players (Charles Pic?) was happy to confirm he'd be observing the basic limits re changes etc.

You can upgrade your membership to Pro or Pro Elite, which gives you more functionality and vastly increased number of changes during the season - 40 for an Elite member.

Rather upsets the level playing field I hope our league would abide by, particularly as I see there is now an option in your profile to hide your upgraded status....face 22

Here you go:

New for 2019, cars can now also score Bonus Points. If you have Williams as a team and they start 19th and 20th on the grid but make it to the finish in 15th and 19th respectively then that’s an improvement of 4 places for one car and 1 place for another car, so 5 places all together and a 5 bonus points. Cars only receive 1 bonus point per position improved

I see that the number of free changes during the season has been reduced from 8 to 6....sad

I've just deleted two posts in this thread involving a personal attack on a member. An earlier private warning has been ignored so a suspension is the consequence.

Please be reminded that the C of C is there to be observed and that warnings by moderators are not given lightly, nor are to be disregarded.

Thank you.

Thread seems to be OK now but your post at 15.38.05 has no content apart from an 'edited by' footnote...?

Can you try uploading the contents again?


Hi Pete, The blank post was a duplicate of the previous one. For some reason it got duplicated. Couldn't delete it only remove the content.

Regs Eric.
