F1 Guess the Top 10 Game

Discussion in 'Formula 1' started by Nick Schneider, Sep 9, 2012.

  1. Hi everyone, I have been lurking the forums for a while and created an account to be ready for F1 2012. I wanted to introduce a game I play over at the F1 management game GPRO.net. The game has a lot of interest over there and I thought it would catch on well here. Here is the basic rules of the game.

    Before the Grand Prix starts every Sunday you basically try to predict the drivers you believe will place in the top 10 for that race. You get get points based on the position the drivers finished and the difference in the results compared to what you predicted.

    Example of top 3 for sample purposes: You predict:
    1. Jenson Button
    2. Fernando Alonso
    3. Sebastian Vettel

    but the result is:
    1. Fernando Alonso
    2. Vettel
    3. Button

    The top 10 finishers are allotted 10-1 point respectively and 10-1 point in the difference of zero positions to 9 positions:

    Example from above:
    1. Alonso (=10pts for 1st x 9pts for finishing 1 position ahead. 90pts total)
    2. Vettel (=9pts for 2nd x 9pts for finishing 1 position ahead. 81pts total)
    3. Button (=8pts for 3rd x 8pts for finishing 2 position lower. 64pts total)

    I will track all the stats for this game in a google spreadsheet for some friendly competition in the remaining races we have left.

    If you would like to take part, please post the names of the drivers you believe will finish in the top 10. I will update the thread as soon as all scores are in. Enjoy and if there are any questions, feel free to ask.

    Afaik, Ross Balfour who started the game you mention had a very busy summer and he is away from the forum right now.

    I believe this game will last till the end of season :thumbsup:

    My Top 10 for Singapore

    1. Vettel
    2. Button
    3. Webber
    4. Alonso
    5. Grosjean
    6. Rosberg
    7. Schumacher
    8. Raikkonen
    9. Massa
    10. Hulkenberg

    Because I'm thinking that with Lewis and Maldonado so close they won't be able to keep it up throughout the race without coming together at some point... Button or Vettel will pick up the win if this happens. lol
  15. Pretty good participation for the first race of this game. Standings will be updated and posted sometime on Monday when I have time
  16. Uh so we can make predictions as late as after qualifying? Because that's kind of pointless.
