Quite a few changes in the table after Brazil;

Pos Change Team Manager Pts
1 - GASTON Formula Chris McG 3000
2 +1 Roos Racers rk295ELITE 2890
3 -1 Pitts Specials john stones 2867
4 +1 iqon racing iqon 2741

13 - Team Webby Racing Simon Webb 2269
14 - teewrex John Tee 2249
15 - AeroArrows Bondaero 2089

Chris holds on to his top spot, and with a cushion of 110 points surely he is now coasting to the finish line?

John S had a bit of a disaster, pointswise, even worse than me! He slips down to third, with Robin taking up second, and a slim chance of catching Chris.

Below them Icon and Ade also traded places, taking 4th and 5th respectively.

Further down the table Charles grabbed 11th from Stu who now occupies 12th.

On to Abu Dhabi next, for what could be the first F1 race ever held in December. Unless anyone knows otherwise? Answers on a postcard please...

Well that was quite a race! Looks like the stewards being kept busy delayed the publishing of the results on fantasygp, as there was no sign of them when I logged-out last night. So without further delay, here are the results in our league from yesterday.

Pos Team Manager Pts
1 teewrex John Tee 174
2 Team Charles Picd Charles Pic 163
3 GASTON Formula Chris McG 154
4 Flying Eagles Gary Goodfellow 141
5 Torque of the devil Stu 136
6 Roos Racers rk295ELITE 107
7 Team Webby Racing Simon Webb 105
8 AeroArrows Bondaero 102
9 Norfolk Flyers Kevin Fairgrieve 101
10 Essex Racing Tony Clark 97
11 Revers Racing Pete B 95
12 iqon racing iqon 79
13 AnyoneSeenBernie johnpflyrc 75
14 Pitts Specials john stones 69
15 PSS Power Flyer 54

Top spot went to John Tee with 174 points, with Charles 2nd on 163 and Chris 3rd on 154.

Well done to the top three! The rest of us trailed a bit behind, with SIX of us scoring below 100. Probably a sign of the "unusual" result!

My opinion on Vettel remains unchanged from what I said earlier in the season, following his latest display of clumsiness - especially with his immediate protest on the radio that it was LeClerc's fault! P45 time?

Anyway, next up is the overall table.

I have already emailed this question to Andy, but appreciate he's probably snowed-under with questions at the moment... I am sure the answer to this will be useful for other clubs;

I’ve just had a call from our club chairman on his way back from a BMFA Area meeting, and he raised a question from what was discussed at that meeting.

If our club members wish to renew their BMFA membership through our club, and be registered as an ‘operator’, then we were expecting to be able to do both the renewal and the operator registration on the club GoMembership portal for them – having, of course, got their consent for you to pass their data on to the CAA.

Our chairman has come away from the meeting with the impression that in order to register as an operator, the individual member has to logon to the GoMembership portal and tick a box giving consent for their details to be passed to the CAA. That would of course prevent me from doing so on their behalf.

Are you able to clarify this?

So, can Andy - or anyone else please clarify?

There's a few narrow margins waiting to be closed... smile o

Good luck everyone!

17/11/2019 12:22:20

You're probably right Chris!

I was getting a year ahead of myself... embarrassed

Of course, 2016 (the mural is dated 11/11/16) was Jenson't last year at McLaren. For some reason I was thinking of 2017 when Vandoorne was there!

@ John P > did Stoffel had a beard in 2016... question

Cheers

Chris

I've no idea, Chris!

My Portugese is somewhat (totally!) lacking, so I've no idea what they're saying in this video, but it appears to be the work of Henrique Crivelari - known as Kinho, and was originally a much bigger work with lots of other drivers where the demolished section of wall is now...

Still open to offers on the ID of the drivers!

16/11/2019 21:22:26

OK, no comments please on the actual qualifying yet as the channel 4 folks haven't seen it yet.

But...

From one of the helicopter shots they used in qualifying, I spotted something out of the corner of my eye that looked like an F1-replated mural on a wall. So after a brief search on google streetview, at this location I found it;

interlagos.jpg

Bernie holding the trophy, with Lewis and Nico sprinting to the finishing line, ahead of (I think) Alonso and (presumably, given the year) Stoffel Vandoorne?

Anyway, just thought I'd mention it!

Penalty for Le Clerc,

Good point, John!

Bear in mind when doing your predictions, that Ferrari say LeClerc will be getting a ten-place grid penlty as they'll be using a new engine.

15/11/2019 20:25:48

So, for the penultimate time this year;

Don't forget your predictions!

P1 saw rain and Allbon fastest, before crashing.

P2 saw Vettel leading the 2 Ferraris ahead of Verstappen and then the 2 Mercedes.

P3 is at 3pm UK time tomorrow with qualifying at 6pm. The race is at 5:10pm on Sunday.

So go and do those predictions. Now! You can change them later if you want... smile d

Chris remains in top spot, though with a reduced margin after today.

The only place changes are Gary overtaking Tony to take 9th and Stu moving ahead of Charles into 11th.

Not quite the win that Lewis would probably have liked to clinch the title with, but title no. 6 none-the-less!

Brazil is up next in a fortnight, with Abu Dhabi rounding off the season a fortnight after that, in what might be the first ever December F1 race - anybody know?

Well done to John S for today's top spot with 154 points.

Second was Gary with 147 and third was Stu on 141.

Most of the rest of us were not far behind with scores in the 130s and 120s.

I already carry my club membership card and BMFA membership printout (what used to the card!) in my transmitter case.

Last week I printed out the exemption documents and my A and B cert documents and put them in the case too. If anybody ever needs to see them then I have them. If they don't, then all I've wasted is a couple of minutes and a few sheets of paper and a little bit of ink. No big deal!

OK folks, Austin Texas this weekend and P2 is currently underway. It's a very late qualifying session tomorrow, 9pm UK time with the race at 7:10pm on Sunday after the Americans put their clocks back an hour in the early hours of Sunday morning. So, we have a little more time than usual, but;

Don't forget your predictions!

Do them now, you can always change them after P3 at 6-7pm tomorrow! I've only seen the results for P1, and have no idea what happened except that Verstappen was fastest with Hamilton 8th and Bottas 17th... OK, from a quick glance at the report it seems Mercedes were just using the slower tyres and holding back a bit! P2 is currently being led by Leclerc from Verstappen and Hamilton.

Anyway, don't forget whatever it was I said earlier not to forget! wink 2

So - with the chequered flag falling on the Ch4 coverage (at least on the online coverage!) here is the overall table after Mexico;

Pos Place gain/lost Team Manager Pts

12 - Torque of the devil Stu 2073
13 - Team Webby Racing Simon Webb 2043
14 - teewrex John Tee 1953
15 - AeroArrows Bondaero 1915

No place changes today, though Robin is actually now tied for 2nd with John S on 2644 points.

Chris holds on to the top spot, though with a slightly reduced lead.

With the US, Brazil and Abu Dhabi to go, Lewis needs just another 4 points to guarantee the championship. But is Chris's lead in our table as safe as that? Time will tell...

So it's Austin, Texas next weekend - Don't forget your predictions!

28/10/2019 00:10:24

With the recorded highlights on Channel4 well into the closing stages I'm going to make the assumption that anybody watching that is glued to the telly and not surfing the 'net, and if they are, not looking in places where they might get a clue about the result!

So here are our scores from Mexico today (well, technically yesterday!)

Pos Team Manager Pts
1 Roos Racers rk295ELITE 197
2 Pitts Specials john stones 163
3 Flying Eagles Gary Goodfellow 153
4 PSS Power Flyer 148
5 Revers Racing Pete B 147

12 Torque of the devil Stu 107
13 Team Charles Picd Charles Pic 93
14 AeroArrows Bondaero 81
15 teewrex John Tee 72

A superb global top-10 score of 197 from Robin takes top spot in our league today and joint 7th in fantasygp overall.

John S takes second with 163 and Gary is third with 153.

27/10/2019 13:19:08

I hadn't seen the news of Max's penalty until a few minutes ago when my sister (in Australia!) told me about it...

For anybody else who hadn't already heard, Max Verstappen has had a 3-place grid penalty applied for failing to slow for Bottas' Q3 crash. So Leclerc is now on pole with Vettel 2nd and Hamilton 3rd.

I think it's going to be an interesting start - for various definitions of the word "interesting"!

27/10/2019 10:24:23

As for the overall table, there is one change as a result of the disqualification;

Pos Gain/Loss Team Manager Pts

15 - AeroArrows Bondaero 1834

Robin moves up a place to third, pushing Ade down to fourth.

More results later today (or tomorrow?) after today's race...

27/10/2019 10:19:54

OK, Fantasygp have updated the points scored in Japan following the Renault disqualification. Our points scored now looks like this;

Pos Team Manager Pts
1 Pitts Specials john stones 165
2 Roos Racers rk295ELITE 154
3 GASTON Formula Chris McG 139
4 iqon racing iqon 138

12 Team Webby Racing Simon Webb 84
13 Team Charles Picd Charles Pic 83
14 teewrex John Tee 69
15 AeroArrows Bondaero 45

So, John S still takes top place with an increased score of 165. Robin also gained points and takes second on 154 and Chris also moves up - to third, with 139.

Commiserations to Simon and Gary who both took a big points 'hit' as a result of the verdict.

25/10/2019 20:29:12

OK folks... Mexico this weekend, and we have a few more hours than usual to ponder over our predictions. With qualifying at 7pm tomorrow we have all day to think about them. But don't leave it too late.

Lewis was (perhaps unexpectedly?) fastest in P1, whilst P2 appears to have stopped for a while due to Albon crashing.

Anyway, the customary reminder;

Don't forget your predictions!
