John, relative to the team I have selected and what happened, I did very badly on what appeared to be the result, other than some how I received more points relative to others.

I thought when I lost two cars, that things could be better. Then coming up to the end of the race I was thinking, things could be worse. Then the crash and things got a lot worse. I had been thinking, I need to change from Lewis, as his path is probably downwards, like in his later Mclaren days, could i afford his team mate, others have hinted, now that he is starting to win, the price will go up. Then suddenly, Lewis is at the front, and at least I got those points, I thought. But all the other points lost, just will not make up for it. Shows you, how wrong you can be when it is about relative failure.

Good game. I seem to get my predictions fairly close, but my team have been underperforming. Today I've addressed it with my first team change. Out go Verstappen, Grosjean and McLaren, in come LeClerc, Sauber and Ricciardo.

Hope that improves my results. I do encourage you all to tweak your teams as you go through the season, as there are eight free changes allowed.

Just consulted the octopuses, and hope they are correct!

Excellent. Even before my reminder! But for those who haven't already done so...

Don't forget your predictions!

Barcelona this weekend and after P2 it's looking fairly close between Mercedes, Red Bull and Ferrari. Qualifying starts at 2pm (UK) tomorrow so get your predictions done before then! Race is 10 minutes later on Sunday. It's a Sky weekend with Channel 4 coverage not until late afternoon/early evening - so no 'spoilers' please until the Channel 4 folks have had a chance to watch the race.

Hello GP forumites,

As outlined on my Vicomte 1916 build blog, I had a bit of an unfortunate incident today.

As I'm not feeling the motivation to correct any former prediction right now, I'm just leaving it as it was for the previous races. sad

Of course, I wish you all the best with your preferred 'octopuses' or other secret 'mediums' (media?). indecision

Good luck to all with the Catalan GP

Cheers

Chris

Hi all,

Well, as foreseen, my total was a complete chaos with the least points for Gaston Formula since the start of the battle.

As an example, just 0,5 point scored in my predictions, while that Yank/Frenchie did it again in the first lap this time... Bravo Romain, super job... devil

Congrats to Pete and to Flyer, who must really take care of his 'super-octopuses'...

Next time even worse, I'm afraid as I will be be out of the country for Monaco with no opportunity to fill in some logic - to me - stuff... frown

Cheers

Chris

Thanks Icon, the result has warmed me up nicely after spending a wet and chilly weekend at the Circuit de Catalunya! On the phone at present so not sure if the pic above will come out right - I'll look in again when I'm back!

Right then - I'm back from flying, the channel 4 coverage should have finished long ago and as some have already seen, the results are up on fantasygp!

So without further ado, here's how we scored today!

Pos Team Manager Pts
1 Revers Racing Pete B 173
2 VBT Racing Yorik 171
3 AnyoneSeenBernie johnpflyrc 157
4 Team Webby Racing Simon Webb 155
5 Flying Eagles Gary Goodfellow 148
6 Norfolk Flyers Kevin Fairgrieve 140
7 Team Charles Picd Charles Pic 136
8 iqon racing iqon racing 131
9 PSS Power Flyer 130
10 Essex Racing Tony Clark 129
11 teewrex John Tee 124
12 Mannschaft Carl Brotherton 121
13 Pitts Specials john stones 110
14 GASTON Formula Chris McG 101

Top scorer today was Pete with 173 points. Well done Pete. Only 2 points behind was Yorik, with me third on 157 points. We all scored 3-figure scores today, even Chris after his little "incident" on Friday...

Next up... How does this affect the overall table?

So here is how the table looks tonight;

Pos Gain/Loss Team Manager Pts
1 +2 Revers Racing Pete B 749
2 -1 PSS Power Flyer 749
3 -1 AnyoneSeenBernie johnpflyrc 737
4 0 Mannschaft Carl Brotherton 690
5 +1 iqon racing iqon racing 679
6 -1 GASTON Formula Chris McG 665
7 +2 VBT Racing Yorik 633
8 -1 Pitts Specials john stones 617
9 -1 Essex Racing Tony Clark 615
10 +1 Team Webby Racing Simon Webb 614
11 -1 Team Charles Picd Charles Pic 596
12 0 Norfolk Flyers Kevin Fairgrieve 577
13 0 Flying Eagles Gary Goodfellow 556
14 0 teewrex John Tee 488

At the top Pete B takes over first place, rising two places at the expense of Flyer and myself, each slipping a place.

There's a bit more jostling for position mid-table, with Yorik being the other team to gain 2 places today. At the foot of the table there's no change in the last 3 places.

Monaco is next in 2 weeks and as usual anything could happen there!

Pete's picture that he attempted to post didn't display in his post, so I'll try to post it below.

I reckon since he was there in person there must be some penalty we can apply to knock him off top spot for having "inside information"... OK, since he sent us a picture I'll let him off this time! smile d

Have a good journey back Pete!

Right then... Friday evening and a Grand Prix ahead of us! So once again;

Don't forget your predictions!

Monaco this weekend, and I reckon it's going to be as unpredictable there as ever. In P1 and P2 Red Bull seem to be the team to beat, but are Mercedes and Ferrari sand-bagging? I guess we'll find out at 2pm tomorrow when qualifying gets underway. Channel 4 as well as Sky have live coverage this weekend.

Changed my prediction with about 2 minutes to go before quali. Verstappen should make it an interesting journey through the pack.

I should have changed my predictions too, but even after P3 I still didn't believe that RB would actually be fastest in quali...

Oh well! As you say Verstappen should have an interesting time tomorrow, though I suspect it might not end very well when impatience gets the better of him and he tangles with one of the mid-field cars. At least that should account for one safety-car period. I've predicted two!

Yes, I had Verstappen down for a podium finish. Unlikely to happen now though!!!

Need them to finish as they start now....

Well that was a "different" Monaco...

I predicted the top three - but, as Eric Morecambe once said, "Not necessarily in the right order"! smile

I'm off flying now - results later, when I'm back and when they're published.
