Thanks Pete, and John S!

I had Seb down for 3rd as well as the fastest lap. At least he delivered one of those, though he seems to have been in self-destruct mode all weekend!

07/10/2018 10:34:10

No, by the narrowest of margins, one point, Pete holds on to his lead!

In the mid-table Simon moves up a place to 5th, displacing Chris, Yorik moves ahead of Carl into 7th and Charles takes 9th place from John S.

So, all to play for with 4 races to go. Austin, Texas is up next in a fornight. Pete - can you see my front wing in your mirrors? smile d

Ah, don't you just love it when a plan comes together - all your ducks are lined up <insert further clichés as required>... the team brings in the points and most of the predictions come true (ok, so I missed 3rd and the number of safety cars!)

And so, good scores from Pete and Simon of 182 and 180, for second and third, but - possibly my best ever result - sees me bring in 205 points, 12th highest on badger this week, to top our scores today;

But is it enough to challenge Pete for top spot overall? We'll see in a moment.

I'm in now, following a reply from Andy!

Somebody (andyh I think) asked earlier whether club admins should now start adding their members whose BMFA membership is with other clubs. Any guidance, Andy S?

I'm sure I'll have lots of other questions once I've had a good look around the site! wink 2

06/10/2018 18:08:17

Thanks Andy - I've replied to your reply!

Looks like a little gremlin stopping me getting in to the Club Admin section. Something similar, but not quite the same, as Cuban8 and andyh reported.

06/10/2018 17:07:58

I'm also a club admin who hasn't received login details - I've emailed membership@bmfa.org...

Japan this weekend, and with the 8-hour time difference I thought I'd interrupt my lunch-break to issue the customary reminder a little earlier than normal;

Don't forget your predictions!

P1 & P2 seem to show Lewis in dominant form with Ferrari not having an answer... P3 is at 'yawn' o'clock in the morning if you want to update your predictions after that, and if I've calculated correctly qualifying is at 7am tomorrow and the race at 6.10am UK-time on Sunday.

30/09/2018 21:02:18

A good birthday performance from young Max, carving his way through the field from the back, and I have an answer to my team name (AnyoneSeenBernie) today...

I must confess when I saw him and Putin on the live coverage I wondered, "Who's the little fella that looks a bit like Bernie?"

Lewis has a 50 point lead now - that looks a bit more comfortable than Pete's 24 point lead in our table. smile p

Japan up next in a week's time. Qualifying and the race at silly o'clock in the morning.

30/09/2018 21:02:03

Answer: Yes it has. Though with a reduced margin;

Two mid-table place swaps today, Simon's score today takes him up a place to 6th at Carl's expense, and Yorik moves up a place to 8th displacing John Stomes.

(continued in next post due to character limit...)

Top spot today goes to John Tee on 173 points. Well done John!

Close behind are myself and Simon with 164 points each. Everybody in our league scored a 3-figure points tally today.

Up next, the overall table. Has Pete's 8th place today been enough to hold on to 1st place?

28/09/2018 20:43:59

Friday evening, and it's another Grand Prix weekend!

Russia this time and Mercedes seem to have the upper hand at the moment. The Red Bulls took 3rd and 4th in P2 behind the Mercedes duo, with Ferrari 5th and 6th - Vettel spinning near the end of the session. But both RBs have penalties for new engines and will start way down the grid.

Qualifying is at 1pm UK-time on Saturday, the race a bit earlier at 12:10pm UK-time on Sunday.

It just remains for me to remind you;

Don't forget your predictions!

Now to the overall standings after Singapore, and we have a few place swaps;

Pete holds on to first place, but I move up to second pushing iqon down to third.

Simon's win yesterday moves him up a place to 7th at the expense of John S, whilst Kev moves up to 11th, pushing Tony down to 12th.

Next up is Russia in 2 weeks.

The results are now up on fantasygp.com. So lets see who did what yesterday;

Simon has the top score for Singapore, with 165 points. Yorik is not far behind with 158 and Pete only 3 points behind on 155. Well done to our top three!

17/09/2018 00:37:24

Still waiting for the results to be posted on fantasygp.com - I see there's an entry under the News heading on there saying, "Fantasy GP results will be delayed for the Singapore GP. Points will be updated on Monday."

So I guess we'll have to wait until tomorrow - I'll try to post here at lunchtime if I get a chance!

Meanwhile, my predictions were not too good either! I had Lewis for the win, but missed out on everything else... I'll have to join Chris looking for a new Predictions Director for my team! nerd

14/09/2018 21:13:25

Evening all! Another weekend and it's the night-time race in Singapore. So without further delay;

Don't forget your predictions!

Raikkonen was fastest in FP2, but only by 0.011s from Hamilton after Vettel had an "encounter" with a wall. FP3 is at 11am UK-time tomorrow if you want to refine your predictions. Qualifying is at 2pm with the race on Sunday at 1.10pm UK-time.

03/09/2018 22:30:34

Not so much what he did, but what the team did. Their car had a floor that they had been warned was illegal.

It seems various teams had different "interpretations" of the regs regarding the floor of the cars. The FIA had clarified what was actually meant back in July, giving the teams whose floor design didn't satisfy the clarification until Monza to sort it out. Haas weren't able to modify theirs in time. Renault protested after the race and Grosjean was disqualified.

Wow - a huge well done, Tim!

It's one of the few TV programmes I regularly watch and usually record it to watch when I get home form work.

I did suspect a big win when I saw it was a series 11 programme. All the recent ones we've seen were series 12. That made me wonder!

There's a two-week break now until the night race in Singapore on 16th September.
