And now - the overall table;




Team Manager Pts
1 +1 Pitts Specials john stones 1192
2 -1 Roos Racers rk295ELITE 1191
3 +2 GASTON Formula Chris McG 1155
4 -1 iqon racing iqon 1149
5 -1 PSS Power Flyer 1144
6 - Revers Racing Pete B 1143
7 +2 Flying Eagles Gary Goodfellow 1100
8 -1 Norfolk Flyers Kevin Fairgrieve 1083
9 -1 AnyoneSeenBernie johnpflyrc 1072
10 - Team Webby Racing Simon Webb 976
11 - AeroArrows Bondaero 897
12 - Team Charles Picd Charles Pic 896
13 - Essex Racing Tony Clark 895
14 - Torque of the devil Stu 842
15 - teewrex John Tee 759

On top after today, by a single point, is John S, who has gained one place pushing Robin down to second.

Moving up two places to third is Chris (better have another beer!) which means that both Iqon and Flyer slip a place each to 4th and 5th respectively.

Pete remains in 6th, but now only one point behind 5th. Below Pete, Gary has moved up two places to 7th, which means Kev and myself both slip a place to 8th and 9th.

Positions 10 to 15 remain unchanged after today.

So, not the most dynamic of races, with nearly all the action occuring in the final lap and the TV coverage managed to concentrate on the wrong battle.

On to Austria next weekend, don't forget your predictions...

23/06/2019 20:36:48

With the chequered flag having fallen on the Channel 4 coverage it's now time to check today's results;

Pos Team Manager Pts
1 GASTON Formula Chris McG 196
2 Flying Eagles Gary Goodfellow 193
3 Revers Racing Pete B 185
4 iqon racing iqon 159
5 PSS Power Flyer 156
6 Essex Racing Tony Clark 152
7 Team Webby Racing Simon Webb 147
8 Pitts Specials john stones 146
9 Roos Racers rk295ELITE 142

12 Team Charles Picd Charles Pic 128
13 Torque of the devil Stu 121
14 teewrex John Tee 110
15 AeroArrows Bondaero 97

Some impressive scores at the top, against a background of a fantasygp-wide high score of 214, we have 3 scores over 180.

Chris takes top spot today with 196. Hopefully he's found some wifi in Gran Canaria and is sitting studying the results, beer in hand! Well done Chris.

Close on his heels with 193 is Gary, and a little further back Pete's third place on 185 will hopefully make his trek back to the campsite seem more worthwhile.

22/06/2019 09:49:59

Kev - if it's any consolation, I nearly always put my predictions in before FP3. On the odd occasion I change them after FP3 it's usually not worked out well!

Quick reminders...

Quali is at 2pm UK-time today with the race at 2:10pm tomorrow.

Ch4 coverage is at 6:30 for quali and 7pm for the race, so for the benefit of those not viewing on $ky, no 'spoilers' please before the Ch4 coverage - thanks!

21/06/2019 19:30:14

Right then... Time for the customary reminder;

Don't forget your predictions!

As weve already been discussing, we're in France this weekend with Pete keeping an eye on things for us. Ferrari's challenge against their penalty in Montréal has been thrown out and Mercedes seems to doing quite well in practice. So get those predictions in!

20/06/2019 21:53:48

Bonsoir Pete!

We're expecting a stellar performance from your team this weekend as you're on site with access to inside information... smile d So don't let us down, and we'll expect some decent tips from you too - before predictions close, of course!

I've just remembered... The Circuit Paul Ricard is the one with those crazy stripy lines painted all over the run-off areas, the ones that make your eyes water and head spin if you're not careful.

So try not to get too many of those in any photos you post! nerd

20/06/2019 20:03:47

That's unfortunate timing, Chris!

Enjoy Gran Canaria, and don't forget your predictions! wink 2

10/06/2019 01:15:21

A few pace changes today at the top, and also near the foot of the table;

Pos Gain/loss Team Manager Pts
1 +1 Roos Racers rk295ELITE 1049
2 -1 Pitts Specials john stones 1046
3 +2 iqon racing iqon 990
4 -1 PSS Power Flyer 988

12 +1 Team Charles Picd Charles Pic 768
13 -1 Essex Racing Tony Clark 743
14 - Torque of the devil Stu 721
15 - teewrex John Tee 649

Robins win today takes him to top place overall, but only 3 points ahead of John S.

Iqon moves up 2 places to second, at the expanse of Flyer and Chris, who slip to 4th and 5th.

Further down the table Charles moves ahead of Tony into 12th.

So, disappointing that the result hinged on a stewards' decision. I have some sympathy for Seb in that once he'd left the track he was a bit of a passenger in what followed so didn't have much option in how he returned to the track. However, it was his mistake that led to him cutting the corner and retaining his lead afterwards, so maybe it couldn't be overlooked... I wouldn't be surprised though if his behaviour after the finish earns him more penalties of some sort.

Anyway, on to France now in 2 weeks time!

10/06/2019 01:05:10

The Channel4 coverage should be over by now, so here are the results in our league from Canada;

Pos Team Manager Pts

Top scorer today is Robin with 161. Eight points back on 153 is Iqon, and John S is a further 2 points back on 151.

Well done to you all.

Next, the overall table..

Hmm... I picked the wrong Ferrari for pole! Hope my other predictions are better.

Here is a link to the article Cuban8 mentioned a couple of posts ago:

Well, well, well... FP2 is now in progress and it seems Hamilton has hit the wall exiting turn 9. "Some damage to the floor," according to Mercedes, and mentions of a possible gearbox change.

Meanwhile Max Verstappen has also been taking lumps out of the scenery, with a bit of contact at the Wall of Champions.

So, who's going to predict what tomorrow? I'll put some predictions in now, but I'll be prepared to change them in light of further information on damage to Lewis's car and the FP3 times tomorrow. (FP3 is on from 4 to 5pm UK time.)

Remember it's a late start, with Montréal being 5 hours behind the UK, so qualifying starts at 7pm UK time tomorrow with the race at 7:10pm on Sunday.

Now, whilst I go and review my secret in-car footage from my test (half) lap last summer, I'll leave you with the customary reminder - and remember no excuses, as Chris has already reminded you all once!

Don't forget your predictions!

ps > ... didn't even know that Hyundai had a F1 car, John... blush

Thanks Cris! As for the Hyundai F1 car, I think they're struggling to get it to meet the current regulations, so its debut may be delayed by a year or two (or three or...)

But I'm sure they're working on it and my efforts test driving it on (half) the circuit will not have been wasted... teeth 2

27/05/2019 09:42:07

Thanks folks!

My team scored some decent points yesterday, and my predictions weren't too shabby this time - but I stil missed out on Fastest Lap (I said LeClerc), Safety Cars (I said 2) and third (Verstappen) and I only got a "nearly" for second!

I'm sure normal service will be resumed at Montréal!

26/05/2019 23:13:42

So after Monaco the overall table looks like this;


Gain/ Loss Team Manager Pts
1 0 Pitts Specials john stones 895
2 0 Roos Racers rk295ELITE 888
3 +1 PSS Power Flyer 848
4 -1 GASTON Formula Chris McG 838

12 +1 Essex Racing Tony Clark 646
13 +1 Team Charles Picd Charles Pic 640
14 -3 Torque of the devil Stu 627
15 0 teewrex John Tee 558

No change in the top two, but Flyer moves up a spot to 3rd at the expense of Chris.

Iqon is also on the move, 2 places up to 5th which pushes Pete and Kev down to 6th and 7th respectively.

My win today sees me grab 8th from Gary, who slips to 9th.

SImon is another one moving up, 2 places for him to 10th with Bondaero droping to 11th.

Tony and Charles are both up a place to 12th and 13th, but Stu is our biggest faller of the day, down 3 places to 14th.

John Tee continues to support us all - keep going John - you took 36 points out ot the gap to Stu today!

So, Canada is up next in 2 weeks. As some of you will remember, I do have some "inside knowledge" of the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve! Sadly that is limited to driving half of the circuit in a rented Hyundai Tucson, whilst subject to a 30 km/h speed limit and numerous Stop signs for pedestrians to cross!

I did record some in-car footage of my progress and have compared it to Lewis' pole-winning lap. Let's just say I can play 0.5 seconds of his lap at a time and then pause it for several seconds waiting for me to catch up! smile d

26/05/2019 23:00:01

OK then... Hot off the press, the fantasygp results are now in. So how did we all do today? Let's take a look...

Well, well... better than I'd expected! My 172 points today seems to be our top score. Robin is up next with 156 and Iqon ties with John S for 3rd place on 149 points each.

How does this affect the overall table? That's up next.

Well Lewis seemed to be slightly on the back foot for most of quali, but then the final lap... where did that come from?

Watching the in-car footage towards the end of the lap I thought he'd blown it - but no, up came the time in purple. At least that's one prediction I've got right!

I've also put Leclerc for fastest lap - if he's still well down the field towards the closing stages then a tactical pit-stop could see him going for the fastest lap point. But let's not count our chickens, eh? dont know

24/05/2019 20:03:06

Thanks Chris for reminding everybody and for your summary of practice. No, I wasn't upgrading my team... no cash left!

So I'm off to do my predictions now, so I'll only remind you once...

Don't forget your predictions!

14/05/2019 21:07:46

Just seen that Zandvoort has been announced as being back on the calendar for 2020.

Thanks for the pics, Pete. The A380 looks very familiar, we get lots of those over our flying site at Epsom Downs - though fortunately a good deal higher than 1,000 feet! (Usually about 9,000 ft)

Lots of place changes today!

At the top, John S and Robin both move up 2 places to 1st and 2nd, which means that Chris and Flyer drop 2 places to 3rd and 4th respectively.

Pete, making good use of his inside information (you knew I was going to say that, Pete!) moves up 2 to 5th, displacing Iqon down 2 to 7th, leaving Kev as our first non-mover of the day in 6th.

Gary holds on to 8th whilst my win today moves me up a place to 9th, pushing Bondaero down to 10th.

Finally Stu and Simon swap places taking 11th and 12th, the remaining places remain unchanged.

Up next is Monaco in two weeks. Can Mercedes continue their winning streak around the streets of Monaco?

Top place, with 158 points is... me. smile o (For once, prediction after prediction fell into place for me!)

Close behind - only 4 points behind - was John S. And only 5 points behind John was Robin on 149 points. Well done John and Robin.

Pete "inside knowledge" B is next on 139, a single point ahead of Gary.

Up next, where does this leave the overall table?
