Back by popular demand... It's the PF1 Pick 10 Competition! 2012 Edition
The game was such a big hit last year that it would almost be a crime not to have it again this year. Razoola is the reigning champion from last year in a closely contested championship, while an epic battle unfolded between the Rookies dbfinch, ManicOversteer and Lotus38. Lets hope this year we will have another closley fought title for both categories!

For those of you who don't know what the PF1 Pick 10 Competition is, here are the rules:

Quote:
Rules are simple, pick 10 drivers you think will finish the race in the points and place them in the order of which you think they will finish. Points are awarded according to the difference your selection is from the race result, providing the selected drivers score points.
o Picking driver in correct place earns 25 points.
o One place out earns 18 points.
o Two place out earns 15 points.
o Three places out earns 12 points.
o Four places out earns 10 points.
o Five places out earns 8 points.
o Six places out earns 6 points.
o Seven places out earns 4 point.
o Eight places out earns 2 point.
o Nine places out earns 1 point.
Maximum points per race is 250.


Example for the 2011 Brazilian Grand Prix:

Tip / Result: Points

1: Vettel / 2nd: 18 points
2: Hamilton / ret: 0 points
3: Webber / 1st: 15 points
4: Button / 3rd: 18 points
5: Kobayashi/ 9th: 10 points
6: Schumacher / 15th: 0 points
7: Rosberg/ 7th: 25 points
8: Buemi / 12th: 0 points
9: Alonso / 4th: 8 points
10: Petrov / 10th: 25 points

Therefore my overall score for Brazil would be:
134 points

The person who has the most points by the end of the season wins the championship.

Your picks must be entered before Friday Practice 1 and can be changed any time before the session starts (just be sure to let me know). Any late picks will incur a penalty depending on how many sessions have passed.
-15 points for FP1
-18 points for FP2
-25 points for SP1
-DSQ for Qual

Incase the forum temporary closes during a race week and you are unable to submit your entry, your average score from past rounds will be used.

A Rookie Field exists for those who miss the opening rounds and wish to join later in the season.

For any of you newcomers you will be surprised at how much more attention you will pay to the entire field during a race and throughout the season, and you will find yourself barracking for drivers that you would never have before.


The first round is the Australian Grand Prix around the Albert Park Street Circuit. It will be the first time we see the cars true performance which makes it the hardest round of the season to predict, but the perfect time to make any crazy picks to get a head start on the rest of the field.

So with 9 Days and 14 Hours until Friday Practice 1, Let The Game Begin...

Excellent to have this competition back again. My crazy choices are:

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

Yes, I think Ferrari will struggle in the first races... and Mercedes' front-wing f-duct won't be immediately banned, pushing them up the order.

Thanks for running this again, specdecible! I know it is a huge amount of work, but you did an awesome job last year. Hopefully your personal results this year will be more in line with the amount of work you put in.

I can't emphasize enough how much I enjoyed this competition last year. It is not a huge time sink, so when I am busy I can just put my prediction out and get on with business, but when I could I also enjoyed spending lots of time trying to figure out how each position, particularly the midfield, would sort out at each race. Towards the end of the season there were some friendly rivalries with others close to my position. Plus, within a few days after each race, specdecible lists how everyone did and posts the names of the best performers in huge letters next to pictures of the podium finishers with their trophies. It is such a rush if you do well enough to get recognized. If you are thinking of joining, just try it out and see how much fun you have!

Here are my complete pull them out of my **** guesses for Australia:

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

Good luck everyone!

Laura23 I meant my post a bit higher up, I edited it 4 hours later because I spelt Raikkonen wrong :blush: and it showed I'd made an edit 4 hours later. It shows up on my comp anyway!
