The table after Monza now looks like this;

Pos Gain/loss Team Manager Pts
1 - GASTON Formula Chris McG 2152
2 - Pitts Specials john stones 2066
3 - Roos Racers rk295ELITE 2044
4 +1 PSS Power Flyer 2005
5 -1 iqon racing iqon 1967
6 - Revers Racing Pete B 1941
7 - Norfolk Flyers Kevin Fairgrieve 1854
8 - AnyoneSeenBernie johnpflyrc 1797
9 - Flying Eagles Gary Goodfellow 1752
10 - Essex Racing Tony Clark 1732
11 +1 Team Webby Racing Simon Webb 1665
12 -1 Team Charles Picd Charles Pic 1664
13 +1 Torque of the devil Stu 1599
14 -1 AeroArrows Bondaero 1590
15 - teewrex John Tee 1531


No changes in the top three, Chris retains his lead.

Ade's win today moves him up a place to 4th and the expense of Iqon.

Lower down, Simon moves up a place to 11th, displacing Charles to 12th and Stu moves ahead of Bondaero to take 13th.

Two weeks now until Singapore, with qualifying being at the normal time for European races - as it's a night race - and the race itself an hour earlier at 1:10pm UK time.

I'm off now to give my team a good talking to! Though, to be fair, the chap who did my predictions did a pretty poor job! embarrassed

I'm sure the channel4 coverage must be winding up by now, so here are our scores from Monza;

Pos Team Manager Pts
1 PSS Power Flyer 196
2 Revers Racing Pete B 167
3 teewrex John Tee 167
4 Team Charles Picd Charles Pic 157
5 Pitts Specials john stones 155

12 AeroArrows Bondaero 125
13 Flying Eagles Gary Goodfellow 119
14 AnyoneSeenBernie johnpflyrc 111
15 iqon racing iqon 111

Top scorer today was Ade with an impressive 196 points - top score in the whole of the fantasygp league was 221.

Second equal are Pete and John Tee with 167.

At the other end, Iqon and I tie for last place on 111 points...

Next - the overall table.

06/09/2019 17:33:05

Just a very quick reminder before I leave the office, in case I don't get a chance to post until much later this evening...

Don't forget your predictions!

It's looking close with Leclerc first in P2, though only 0.068 seconds quicker than Hamilton with Vettel a furtehr 0.2 seconds behind.

01/09/2019 20:52:40

3 places swaps today, so first let's see the table;




Team Manager Pts
1 - GASTON Formula Chris McG 2000
2 +1 Pitts Specials john stones 1911
3 -1 Roos Racers rk295ELITE 1901
4 - iqon racing iqon 1856
5 - PSS Power Flyer 1809
6 - Revers Racing Pete B 1774
7 +1 Norfolk Flyers Kevin Fairgrieve 1701
8 -1 AnyoneSeenBernie johnpflyrc 1686

13 - AeroArrows Bondaero 1465
14 - Torque of the devil Stu 1447
15 - teewrex John Tee 1364

Chris remains top after today, but John S moves up a place to second, pushing Robin down to 3rd.

In mid-table, Kev's good result today moves him up to 7th at my expense!

A little further down Charles moves ahead of Simon to take 11th.

Next up is Monza next weekend with Singapore 2 weeks later and Russia the following weekend - September is a busy month! Don't forget your predictions!

01/09/2019 20:43:39

OK, I can see over on channel 4 they're talking to Charles Leclerc, so clearly their race coverage has finished. So without further delay, here are the scores in our league for today.

Pos Team Manager Pts
1 Pitts Specials john stones 197
2 GASTON Formula Chris McG 195
3 Norfolk Flyers Kevin Fairgrieve 168
4 Roos Racers rk295ELITE 159
5 Revers Racing Pete B 156
6 Essex Racing Tony Clark 155
7 teewrex John Tee 151
8 Team Charles Picd Charles Pic 147
9 iqon racing iqon 145
10 PSS Power Flyer 143
11 Torque of the devil Stu 128
12 AnyoneSeenBernie johnpflyrc 123
13 Team Webby Racing Simon Webb 123
14 Flying Eagles Gary Goodfellow 122
15 AeroArrows Bondaero 98

John Stones, despite his concerns on the predictions, heads our table for Spa, with Chris in 2nd for his home race only 2 points behind John - their points being 197 and 195. A little further back on 168 is Kev.

Well done all three!

Up next, the overall table!

01/09/2019 14:16:40

Oh no...that poor octopus. I'm calling the RSPCA wink 2

Mind you, if it didn't perform...

01/09/2019 12:41:22

John, I don't see that you've been 'deducted 10 points'.

I do understand your frustration, but I don't see any other way around it. Whilst I know no more than the rest of us what the exact problem was, it was clearly something outside the control of fantasygp - I suspect an issue with the hosting service they use.

Given that there was a problem that prevented many people making their predictions, or adjusting ones they'd already made earlier, the solution they have given is - I believe - the only realistic one they could have made.

Predictions are now open for people to change - the side-effect is that the first prediction is effectively nullified as we all know the answer to that one now! Tecnically I'm sure they don't have the ability to 'switch on/off' the ability to change individual predictions, but not others. I'm sure their system could be changed to permit that, but that would require their software developers to specify, design, code, test and deploy. Not something you can do in an hour or so on Saturday morning!

So, I'm sorry you have lost the advantage of gaining ten points as everybody else now has those ten points too. But really I don't see what else they could have done that wouldn't have caused a lot more problems.

Let's get on and look forward to a race under rather different weather conditions to those we've seen in practice and qualifying - that may stir things up a bit!

31/08/2019 21:35:37

OK, I guess we've all got the email from fantasygp about today's outage. In case anybody missed it I'll copy the text below, but in short, they've reopened predictions for this weekend until 1:10pm BST on Sunday - an hour before the race start. And they've given us all the pole prediction!

Fantasy GP of Belgium UPDATE

Hi , apologies for the outage today ahead of qualifying for the Belgian Grand Prix. Issues outside of our control, from third party providers caused an issue that could not be quickly fixed ahead of the session.

We've now made amends and the game is open NOW for everyone to make their changes and predictions - and yes you can all predict Leclerc or Pole Position, in fact we've already done that for you.

All details and full explanation here - please read: Belgian Fantasy GP Update

Good luck for the for the race and apologies again for the outage, it won't happen again.

Adam - Fantasy GP

31/08/2019 20:50:02

I guess we're all in the same boat with not being able to update our predictions today. I should have changed mine, but had already decided not to before realising that I wouldn't have been able to.

Sad news from Spa, one of the drivers in the F2 race, 22 year old Frenchman Anthoine Hubert, has been killed in a crash there this afternoon.

31/08/2019 16:56:42

I did wonder about changing my predictions, but decided against it. I'm not sure yet whether that was a good thing or not - and in any case I wouldn't have been able to!

30/08/2019 20:49:55

Have a good trip Kev! I suspect you'll find internet access in Vietnam, particularly in the cities.

Perhaps you should delay your return a couple more weeks and drop in on Singapore on your way back! smile d

And Chris - if it was down to me you could have your 10 points for the Bottas prediction, but you'd still have to convince the guys at nerd

30/08/2019 13:20:37

Right then, wakey wakey... the summer break is over and it's Spa this weekend.

First practice has seen a Ferrari one-two and Mercedes by all accounts having "issues". Let's see what happens in P2, maybe wait until P3, but most importantly;

Don't forget your predictions!

Perhaps we can send Chris along for some inside information - assuming he's not there already!

Usual times for a European race, qualifying at 2pm (UK time) on Saturday and the race at 2:10 on Sunday.

P2 starts in 40 mins from now...

04/08/2019 22:25:41

I too was looking at a completely correct set of podium predictions until Vettel mucked it up for me! I guess Vettel won't be on your Christmas card list then either, Pete?

I also had a 'near-miss' with the 'bonus' question. I put Gasly down for a top-5 place. He finished 6th...

Oh well, onwards to Spa!

04/08/2019 20:26:54

There's a familiar look about the overall table after today with only two pairs of place changes;

Pos Gain/Loss Team Manager Pts
1 - GASTON Formula Chris McG 1805
2 +1 Roos Racers rk295ELITE 1742
3 -1 Pitts Specials john stones 1714
4 - iqon racing iqon 1711
5 - PSS Power Flyer 1666
6 - Revers Racing Pete B 1618
7 - AnyoneSeenBernie johnpflyrc 1563
8 +1 Norfolk Flyers Kevin Fairgrieve 1533
9 -1 Flying Eagles Gary Goodfellow 1511
10 - Essex Racing Tony Clark 1435
11 - Team Webby Racing Simon Webb 1400
12 - Team Charles Picd Charles Pic 1400
13 - AeroArrows Bondaero 1367
14 - Torque of the devil Stu 1319
15 - teewrex John Tee 1213

Near the top of the table Robin moves up to 2nd, pushing John S down to 3rd.

Mid-table, Kev and Gary trade places, Kev moving up to 8th with Gary now 9th.

I must admit I thought Mercedes had slightly lost the plot when they pitted Lewis, but it turns out the tactics were spot on. I wonder where Bottas will be next season though, and I think Verstappen is going to feature even more in the second half of the season.

So we have the summer break now, Spa is up next at the very end of August/early September, the race being on 1 September. Plenty of time then to consider our predictions!

04/08/2019 20:16:11

Channel 4's coverage should hopefully be coming to a close about now, and even if it isn't, those who are watching it are probably glued to the screen and not surfing the net at the same time!

So here are the scores in our league for today;

Pos Team Manager Pts
1 GASTON Formula Chris McG 176
2 PSS Power Flyer 147
3 iqon racing iqon 145
4 Roos Racers rk295ELITE 140
5 AeroArrows Bondaero 135
6 Norfolk Flyers Kevin Fairgrieve 131
7 AnyoneSeenBernie johnpflyrc 130
8 teewrex John Tee 128
9 Torque of the devil Stu 120
10 Revers Racing Pete B 117
11 Team Charles Picd Charles Pic 115
12 Essex Racing Tony Clark 112
13 Flying Eagles Gary Goodfellow 109
14 Pitts Specials john stones 109
15 Team Webby Racing Simon Webb 101

An impressive score of 176 from Chris heads our table today. Flyer is almost 30 points back in 2nd with 147 and Iqon is only 2 points further back on 145. Well done all - especially Chris, the overall fantasygp high score today was 209.

All of us scored over 100 today. So up next, how does the overall table look?

02/08/2019 22:43:46

Thanks Chris! I'm a bit behind schedule today...

I haven't done my predictions yet, and I'm not sure what to predict based on P1 and P2!

I'll be out tomorrow during the day so won't manage to watch qualifying, but qualifying and the race are the usual times for a European race - 2pm (UK time) for quali and 2:10pm for the race.

So, just to repeat what Chris already said;

Don't forget your predictions!

(I'm going to do mine right now!)

28/07/2019 23:23:24

And the revised overall table has one place change compared to before - I move above Gary into 7th, Gary slips to 8th.

Hopefully that's all the changes now until next weekend!

OK folks, take 2! Following the application of the 30 second penalties handed out to Raikkonen and Giovinazzi, the points have been revised and today's table looks like this;

Pos Team Manager Pts
1 iqon racing iqon 184
2 Essex Racing Tony Clark 179
3 Team Charles Picd Charles Pic 159
4 Roos Racers rk295ELITE 151
5 GASTON Formula Chris McG 144
6 Pitts Specials john stones 121
7 AnyoneSeenBernie johnpflyrc 109
8 AeroArrows Bondaero 94
9 Torque of the devil Stu 75
10 teewrex John Tee 73
11 Norfolk Flyers Kevin Fairgrieve 72
12 PSS Power Flyer 70
13 Team Webby Racing Simon Webb 56
14 Flying Eagles Gary Goodfellow 56
15 Revers Racing Pete B 55

The top 3 positions are as before, though Iqon 'loses' 2 points, down to 184 and Charles gains 9, up to 159.

28/07/2019 21:52:25

Ah, ok - I thought they had! I might make it into 3-digits then!

I'll post an update when I see any changes...

28/07/2019 21:39:57
Posted by iqon on 28/07/2019 21:26:42:

Hang on, channel 4 shows penalties I may lose a few points

Yep - from, "Raikkonen and Giovinazzi had 30 seconds added to their race times for use of driver aids at the start."

That's already accounted for in the results published. Amongst other changes, it elevates Hamilton up to 9th.
