Excellent that was my best result yet scoring 157 points. Shame Vettel didn't come 3rd as I predicted. I am now 103rd in the world ranking out of 3120.

That's good going, Tony. I think there will be more changes as Webber hasn't been given any points in the scoring for the race - not that it will affect me!smile

Not a good day for me but the bonus points were useful. I'm a bit miffed that they've treated the re-start as a safety-car period - there were two safety car periods as far as I was concerned. Clearly, they have to use the safety car for a rolling re-start and I'm not sure it should be counted, but hey-ho...

I reckon Lewis may just have lifted off at the start - he was a good 1/2 car length ahead of Nico and could have made it first into the turn - so I think he was probably resigned to riding shotgun today - pity the tyre change went pear-shapedcrook

I like to see close racing and guys having a go but Perez is taking it to a new level - he's trying a bit too hard, I think. I was rather more pleased than I should have been when he tried to mix it with the wrong guy and Kimi shut the door on him......teeth 2

Looking forward to Canada...

Thanks Pete, I didn't notice not having the extra points from Webber, I am due another 15 points!

Looking at the scores on badger it seems there is indeed another glitch in their scoring. A bit disappointing as I don't recall any such problems in the 2 or 3 previous years using their leagues. Anyway, it seems people are missing points for Webber. I've emailed Adam at badger - hopefully he'll sort it out quickly.

I'll post updated scores and comments on who did well this round when the scores get updated.

I wondered about whether they would count 2 or 3 safety cars. Overall I think 3 was the correct decision as the s/c did appear three times, and the red flagging was one step up from a safety car, so perhaps it counts as a safety car plus...

As for the race... yes, I too thought Perez was rather overdoing things. I felt he was a bit lucky to have Alonso ordered to give him the place after he'd effectively forced Alonso off the track to avoid a collision. And then the various other incidents at the same place involving him... Curious crash by Massa - almost idetical to the one in P3. And I'm not sure what Grosjean was doing when he rearranged the back end of Ricciardo.

The "secret" tyre testing by Pirelli and Mercedes will be investigated by the FIA - though it's not clear when this will be.

Just had a reply from Adam apologising for the error which is now fixed. so here is the revised table;

Modelflying forumites - Passcode: j4SFxG

Pos Team Manager Pts
1 TeamTyphoon typhoontone 755
2 JohnPs plodders JohnP 677
3 F1 Legends Rob Lewis 634
4 Roos Racers rk295 633
5 Norfolk Flyers nss 542
6 Revers Racing Pete B 520
7 Speedbird Concorde F1 Jacob Cleverley 502
8 IPjnet F1 Ian Jones 459

Give me 5 minutes to drop the data into Excel and I'll tell you did well, and who did, errr, "less well" in Monaco!

And so a storming result for TeamTyphoon with 172 points - 26th best overall out of 3122. Nice one Tony!

Second best at Monaco in our league was myself with 135 points - once Webber's scores were sorted out. I gain two places in the league at the expense of Roos Racers who seemed to be having a bit of an 'off' day with 72 points and 7th place on the day.

Third best score was Speedbird Concorde F1 with 125 points and with Ian getting 4th best score - 98 points, these two are closing the gap on the midfield where points seemed more difficult to come by.

To summarise, points for Monaco were;

1

TeamTyphoon

typhoontone

172

2

JohnPs plodders

JohnP

135

3

Speedbird Concorde F1

Jacob Cleverley

125

5

Rob Lewis

87

6

7

8

Canada in two weeks, I'll be back to remind you about your predictions! smile p

What a terrible day for my team! I made some changes after Spain, I think things would have been better off the way they were!

The race was all over the shop, thouroughly enjoyed watching Lewis and Webber towards the end, shame the battle was brought to a premature end due to worries about tyre wear. And I wonder what the FIA will make of the Ferrari and Redbull complaint against Mercedes for alleged mid season testing!

I'm last but not lost! I only need one good result to get me right in amongst the midfield, more than that could be difficult, never say never though.

The way things are going I may have to re-employ the drivers I recently sacked though!

Made my predictions for prior to qualifying at 0500.

I'll see how I things develop in Canada before I make any team changes.

Do let us know if you get a reply, Pete! nerd

In the meantime... Don't forget your predictions - though we do have most of tomorrow to get them done as qualifying doesn't start until 6pm BST.

It's looking like it could be fairly close for pole between Ferrari and Mercedes, though it seems Mercedes will still struggle in the race more than most with tyres.

Quite an interesting race and Qualifying. Shame I thought it might rain, I'll probably get average points this time as most of my predictions weren't quite right but not far off.

Good drive for Lewis.

Drat and double drat - I skilfully predicted the first three but, as Eric Morecambe once said, "I might be playing all the right notes - but not necessarily in the correct order........"crying 2crying 2

I was rather banking on some rain but otherwise it was a good race from P2 downwards....

I've just had a look at my predictions - a case of so close, but yet so far... I got just one right!

 

Pole - I put Hamilton. He missed it by 87/1000 a second. crying 2

Ist in race - I put Alonso, who came second.crook

2nd in race - I put Vettel, who came first. sad

3rd in race - I put the wrong Mercedes driver.smile o

Fastest lap - Vettel obviously, he always gets it. But not today...disgust

Safety cars - Some points at last! smile d (Though I was a bit concerned the safety car might come out when Gutierrez found an awkward spot to park in towards the end.)

Hopefully I'll pick up some points from my team members - we'll see when the badger tables are published.

Right, here's the table as published this evening on badger. The game status shows as "Pending FIA confirmation" though I'm not sure there's anything outstanding that could change the result...

Pos Team Manager Pts
1 TeamTyphoon typhoontone 862
2 JohnPs plodders JohnP 803
3 F1 Legends Rob Lewis 730
4 Roos Racers rk295 710
5 Revers Racing Pete B 611
6 Norfolk Flyers nss 598
7 Speedbird Concorde F1 Jacob Cleverley 586
8 IPjnet F1 Ian Jones 563

 

So, in terms of "who done what"... it appears I had the highest score of our league with 126 points, narrowing the gap very slightly to typhoontone who had the second best score with 107 points - enough to keep him comfortably at the top of the table.

In 3rd for Canada was Ian with 104 points closing the gap a bit to Jacob. Rob was 4th with 96 points, Pete 5th with 91, Jacob 6th with 84, Robin 7th with 77 and nss 8th with 56.

The only position changes in our league this round were Pete and Norfolk swapping places.

Silverstone in 3 weeks time, so "Don't forget your...." Never mind, I'll remind you all nearer the time! thumbs up
