Another good race, but a rather so-so result for my "team", and with only 2 predictions right I could be sliding down our table...

I'm going flying now, I'll post the table when I return.

So, here's the table;

1

Roos Racers

rk295

TeamTyphoon

And mixed results for us I think! Roos Racers remains at the top but now Team Typhoon are only 6 points behind and my team are pushed down to third, a further 35 points adrift. The remaining positions remain unchanged.

Next race - Spain, in three weeks time.

A few of my predictions worked out nicely, shame about Sutil! Good racing towards the end again with webber/hamilton and the Mclarens.

Roos you're going down next race!

Tony, according to my spreadsheet, you had the highest scoring team in our league for Bahrain with 154 points. Roos Racers were 2nd with 135. Good points scores (121 each) from Norfolk Flyers and Revers Racing put them in third equal for Bahrain, and whilst not gaining them any league positions, they have narrowed the gap a little to Rob's F1 Legends. Still a lot of races to go though! smile

My terrible predictions didn't help this week, almost all the points coming from the team. I fear my lead will be short lived!

Was a good race all in all, I enjoyed watching. I really felt for DiResta in the last quarter, a first podium would have been fantastic.

Customary reminder time once again! Don't forget your predictions for Spain!

You can wait until after P3 tomorrow morning if you want, but why not enter a "banker" set of predictions now? Then if something comes up and you don't manage to enter any tomorrow at least you've got something in place. With the predictions you can change your mind as many times as you want - at least until just before qualifying starts!

One thing's for sure - there'll be a safety car as I've gone for 'none' for the first time this year...teeth 2

Thaks for the reminder John - having been on hoildiday for a week it had slipped through my urgent to do list.

Dunnit now though, and some major team changes. Out of the frying pan.....? We'll seedont know

Well, not the most entertaining race, IMHO. Rather too much emphasis on tyre preservation and not letting the drivers drive to their true potential, but hopefully Monaco in 2 weeks will be rather different.

Not too good for my predictions either - didn't get a single one right!

As far as the league goes, if my spreadsheet is giving me the right information, it was a good result for Rob's F1 Legends, scoring 151 points and moving up 2 places to second. A good result also for Ian's IPJNet F1 team with 149 points lifting him one place up the table. 3rd today was Pete's Revers Racing on 118 points, though no places gained.

TeamTyphoon takes over the top of the league with 111 points scored today, the 4th best in the league, with myself taking 5th today with 105 points and no places lost or gained. Norfolk Flyers scored 89 with no place change and Speedbird Concord F1 put in a less than supersonic performance with 86 points and drops to the foot of the table.

Nightmare result of the day though goes to Roos Racers, scraping together a mere 58 points and plunging from the top of the table down to 4th place. Just goes to show how quickly things can change in this game!

So here's the table as it stands now;

Pos Team Manager Pts
1 TeamTyphoon typhoontone 608
2 F1 Legends Rob Lewis 572
3 JohnPs plodders JohnP 567
4 Roos Racers rk295 561
5 Norfolk Flyers nss 479
6 Revers Racing Pete B 466
7 IPjnet F1 Ian Jones 386
8 Speedbird Concorde F1 Jacob Cleverley 377

Final word - Don't forget your predictions for Monaco! yes

Wow, i hadn't looked at the badger site, but didn't think i'd done too well, no predictions right other than safetycar. Must have got a nice haul from drivers and teams smiley

Its all increadibly close at the top, 47 points between 1st and 4th...

 

Edit:  Just looked at Badger and theres a few of us with 25 points too many in your list above, must have been a glitch in the scores.  I'm currently in 3rd with 547 pts

Thanks for the 'heads-up' Rob. Looks like badger must have had a prediction wrong to have given some of us an extra 25 points. I did wonder how I'd done so well!

So here's how it's looking now;

Pos Team Manager Pts
1 TeamTyphoon typhoontone 583
2 Roos Racers rk295 561
3 F1 Legends Rob Lewis 547
4 JohnPs plodders JohnP 542
5 Norfolk Flyers nss 479
6 Revers Racing Pete B 441
7 Speedbird Concorde F1 Jacob Cleverley 377
8 IPjnet F1 Ian Jones 361

And so for Spain our best team was still Rob's F1 Legends, though with 'only' 126 points moving him up to 3rd at my expense! Ian still managed 2nd and closes the gap to Jacob's Speedbird Concorde F1. Pete was 3rd and Norfolk 4th with no change in league positions. 5th= was TeamTyphoon (which was enough for him to slip past Roos Racers into first in the league) and Speedbird Concorde F1. I could only mange 7th and drop to fourth in the league and Roos Racers drop to second with an 8th place score this round.

As Rob says, rather close at the top. And the bottom half of the table seem to be catching up too...

Well it didn't improve my position in the end but my personel changes produced my best result so far - close enough to be a threat to to CSB next time 'round if doesn't get his afterburners on.wink 2

I enjoyed the race but I wish Maclaren would sort themselves out.

Now then, I'm sure I don't need to remind you - but I will anyway! Don't forget your predictions! (Not that mine did me any good last time...embarrassed)

After second practice the two Mercedes head the field with the Ferraris behind, then Webber followed by the Lotuses - though Monsieur Grosjean doesn't seem to be using any "home" advantage (yes, I know Monaco isn't really part of France, and anyway lots of drivers can call Monaco "home" ) and has stuffed his Lotus into the Armco...

So will it be a glorious qualifying session and a dismal race for Mercedes? Or can they make the tyres last a bit better here? We'll know the answers on Sunday afternoon, but in the meantime, DON'T FORGET YOUR PREDICTIONS! wink 2

It's getting more difficult each race - not easier! crying 2

I agree, The last races have been difficult to predict. I have my predictions in now, I just hope they are better than last race but it's all up in the air again. Can be a bad move doing predictions based on practice sessions as nobody really knows what the teams where testing at the time!

Any how hope you all do well but not as well as me!

John, it seems you do need to remind me! Thanks for the post, I was annoyed at myself for not getting my predictions in last time. Got them in on time this week.

Pete, you aren't wrong about it getting harder, I sat for a good while pondering the Monaco predictions.

Well, that was an incident-packed race! I predicted one safety car - and we got one! Then a second... Ho hum. That left my only correct prediction as Webber for third. Hope you all did better!

I'm off flying now - I'll post the league table this evening assuming it's updated on badger by then.
