The FMTTM F1 League

With the new exciting F1 season (or boring procession, take your pick) almost upon us, how about an FMTTM F1 league.
Pick 3 drivers. They can be from any team, and as they score points, you score points with them.
To make the choice more difficult, the points are weighted.

For Ferrari, McLaren, Mercedes and Red Bull,
you get only the points that your drivers score.

For Williams, Sauber, Torro Rosso, Force India, Renault
You get double your driver's points.

For the new teams: Virgin, Lotus, HrT etc
You get 5 times your driver's points.

Drivers disqualified for cheating in a given race should incur a 15 pt penalty.

Enter your team below, then, as the season progresses you can edit your post to update the scores....but no changing drivers.

Reckon there should be a transfer window for one driver after Monaco and Budapest, though.

I thought about that Buddy, but opted against, on the grounds that it would narrow the field too much.

Buddy Posted on 08/03/2010 10:39
The FMTTM F1 League

Probably, but you could take the view that someone towards the bottom of the league might take a punt on a team developing their car as the season progresses. You could also change the teams which get the 5x points if, say, Sauber are five seconds off the pace.

I'm over-complicating, aren't I?

Simple is best I think. It's good to see all the lists are different.

I want MORE complexity. E.g., points divided by diffuser multiple - double diffuser = half points. And one off bonuses. Being forced off by Schumacher = 20 points. Being tipped for world championship by Bernie Eccleston = 25 points. Attending Max Mosely party = - 50 points.

Buddy Posted on 08/03/2010 11:23

Hulkenberg's at Williams. Lotus drivers are Kovaleinen and Trulli.

Actually Specky, I will add one item of complexity to the original post. Drivers caught cheating should have a penalty deduction.

If you penalise the drivers for cheating nobody would have any pints, you should do what the FIA do and have a pecking order depending on the team they drive for and if they are British.

Force india were decent last year aand are running a decent car, just been on the F1 site and ut mentions that FI have not had to make any cuts this year in personall etc,
they could be one of the lead teams

mattrich Posted on 08/03/2010 12:43
The FMTTM F1 League

I can't see past Alonso tbh, by far the best driver out there and now at the best team, has been consistantly quick pre season and settled very quickly at ferrari, unlike Raikkonen before him. I think Jean Todt will continue like all presidents before him by punishing mclaren, i exoect their car to be declared illegal after Red Bull's complaints about the rear wing, strange how they sent an FIA inspector to visit the mclaren factory but didn't look at the offending rear wing, they decided to leave it till the start of the GP weekend, thus giving them minimal time to come up with a replacement rear wing.

Buddy Posted on 08/03/2010 12:46
The FMTTM F1 League

Charlie never got there I don't think. I suspect whether it gets taken any further will depend on whether Red Bull protest it on Thursday, same as with the diffusers last year.

Vosene Posted on 08/03/2010 12:49
The FMTTM F1 League

You could be right Mattrich, This season has so many variables it is difficult to nail a cert, unlike previous seasons.
Last season i guessed almost correctly, had a little wager with a collegue, he fancied Ham again, i went for a brawn then the red bulls to catch up, i got the info from the F1 site. They knew the brawn would be quick because of the diffuser.
This year though, even Force India were posting red hot times in testing along with Ferrari/Maclaren, not heard of Red Bull though, but will no doubt figure strongly.

I can't wait to see how it pans out, hopefully be the best season for a long time, also the slower cars will no doubt cause some grief when lapping, add in that loony kobiashi who drives like me on gran turismo [:D]

borolad259 Posted on 08/03/2010 13:05

Some good lists...in answer to who administers it, well, I'm sure it will be kept hoofed throughout the season, and you update your own points tally by editing your original list.

look at the scoring sytem tho.
You will get double points if sutil scores ot another low team so you jsut as better off choosing a mid team who will be in the points as they will probably get as much as winners of top teams

Mr ad259 you appear to have neglected to double the heroic point scored by Rubens. By my reckoning I should be on 29. A marginal peccadillo, however could be the difference between a playoff spot and 'being Boro' at the end of the season.

borolad259 Posted on 15/03/2010 09:44
The FMTTM F1 League

Quite right MrGet. I shall amend the list accordingly...and there was I wondering whether the dble points would ever come into play this year.

Fine margins at play here. Mr Vosene was quite unlucky, picking two drivers whose point scoring was heavily compromised by reliability/racing incidents.

The FMTTM F1 League

True, I wasn't thinking about those selected, just the fact that the points go down to 10th and you only have 8 "non-double-points" runners.

borolad259 Posted on 15/03/2010 10:38
The FMTTM F1 League

It'll be most interesting when there are wet races...in fact, they might be the only interesting races. Then there's a better chance of DNFs amongst the top 8.
It's a good job the Red Bull is made of balsa wood, otherwise this week's race would have had no drama at all.

Buddy Posted on 15/03/2010 10:50
The FMTTM F1 League

That's the dichotomy of F1 though. A lot of fans go on and on about it being the pinnacle of motorsport and it shouldn't be tainted by BTCCalike reverse grids and so on, then scream merry hell when a dozen (well, ten for now) companies turn up with near-perfect pieces of machinery which don't break and go about the same speed as each other.

borolad259 Posted on 15/03/2010 10:57
The FMTTM F1 League

I think it will get better this season as teams push their luck more on the tyres and fuel...but it could be improved by making the tyres available less durable...say soft and supersoft only at each venue.
They should limit fuel tank size in future too...force teams into finding leaner burning solutions.

borolad259 Posted on 20/03/2010 13:41
The FMTTM F1 League

McLaren and Mercedes have to change their diffusers for Oz next week.
Hamilton reckons the McLaren will perform better on the less twisty bumpy circuit, and Renault have been allowed to improve their engine...which hardly seems necessary, given that the car was like XXXXXX off a shovel last week.
Anyway, all this by way of a hoof, so that I don't need to get into a tardis to retrive the thread come next weekend.

Jeremy_Clarkson Posted on 20/03/2010 13:44

why not add it to your favorites and hoof it that way [^]

Buddy Posted on 20/03/2010 13:46
The FMTTM F1 League

Shyt off a shovel that broke halfway through the job.

I think this latest diffuser thing sums up F1 perfectly. For those who don't know, it goes like this:

- holes in the diffuser increase airflow, increasing downforce and improving performance;
- bigger holes increase airflow even more;
- for this reason, holes are banned;
- except for a hole ONLY big enough to get the little starter motor tool into the engine.

So what happens? Some teams develop a starter motor the size of a dinner plate [:D]

New regulation governing the size of starter motors please FIA.....

Ok, so qualifying done and dusted, and it looks as though Madmick will have a less productive week. The assumption that Hamilton will always out-qualify Button has been shown to be a false one already.
I'm hoping that those Red Bulls run out of fuel, or that Mark Webber runs Vettel off at turn 1 in an effort to win his home GP....it looks like the only way anyone else will get a look in tomorrow.
Alonso 1, Button 2, Kobayashi 8th will do me.

Interestingly, not one person picked Mark Webber for their team.

Looks like Barrichello might pick Specky a few sneaky points up again.

Well, that couldn't have been much more of a contrast with Bahrain.

Mark Webber is a mentalist...how he finished that race at all, I have no idea. I think Red Bull should have the cliche "To finish first, first you have to finish" as their team motto.

Massa was very canny today. Great drive from Button, but a bit worrying to see Hamilton's toys coming out of the pram.

WIll update the league shortly.

Forgetting the article, the photo is great, cars pointing in the wrong direction etc

It does look, from this photo, that Michael Schumacher might have been at fault for the bump that span Alonso and hindered Button. It's amazing that Button managed to get round the outside of the chaos from that position.

Hamilton's peevishness (justified perhaps) today reminds me a little of the way Barrichello reacted to some of the Brawn pitstop calls last year, when Button was beating him. Great effor from Rubens today, again.

People questioned Button's wisdom in moving to Hamilton's team, but after this race, he has enhanced his reputation. It looks like a great judgement call now, regardless of what happens later.

Hamilton may need to watch himself. He has enjoyed a privileged position within his team, but that can easily be lost if he plays the politics badly.

Schumacher just got caught in the crossfire as Alonso span round. I'm not sure you could really say anyone was at fault - three into one corner just doesn't usually go.

You're right about Lewis though. I actually enquired of the television "Are you Rubens in disguise?" as he started complaining.

borolad259 Posted on 28/03/2010 23:06
The FMTTM F1 League

Maybe you are right about Schumacher, but he was on the outside of the three, coming from behind...by trying to stay on the track he gave Alonso nowhere to go...mind, Alonso had a terrible start.
Great race though. One of the best for a while. I'm glad there's only a week until the next race now.

borolad259 Posted on 02/04/2010 09:37
The FMTTM F1 League

Well, it might be a mad weekend in Sepang. Slow Ferraris (predicting a difficult weekend apparently), quick but reliably unreliable Red Bulls, McLarens out front in practice until Vettel sets pole in qualifying, rainstorms (but no ice creams)...it should be interesting at least.
For those with Vettel in their list, it seems that Red Bull are very concerned about having to move their mirrors inboard for safety reasons....apparently they give a performance advantage. So, they might come back to the pack a bit after China, although I read somewhere that if they continue to race with sticky out mirrors, they won't be penalised.

"quick but reliably unreliable Red Bulls" [|)][:(!]

Im just wondering if Jenson could possibly drive a two seater car and take Vettel with him? [:D]

borolad259 Posted on 02/04/2010 09:47
The FMTTM F1 League

A major upgrade for Red Bull would be a towing hook under the front end.

EDIT: update is that the teams have now been given until Barcelona to bring the mirrors inboard.

You could say it was no coincidence that his car fell apart when he was so far in front. Maybe he's driving it too hard.

borolad259 Posted on 04/04/2010 11:19
The FMTTM F1 League

Buddy, we are paying for trying to make adventurous choices...we will be bringing up the rear come the season's end. Those Saubers and Virgins are woeful.
We can watch those that made safe and obvious choices romp away with it, whilst we dive off the settee in rapture when our outsiders snatch 10th place and a point.

Boro Al is the joker in the pack here. His shrewdy pick Kubica is the top scoring individual at the moment on 60 points.

Buddy Posted on 04/04/2010 11:22
The FMTTM F1 League

Still hope for Virgin. di Grassi was the highest placed new car today and apparently was easing right off to save fuel. When they get a proper tank at Barcelona they'll be challenging for points.

Probably.

borolad259 Posted on 17/04/2010 08:38
The FMTTM F1 League

So, Button out-qualifies Hamilton for the 3rd time this season.....who'd a thunk it?
The Red Bulls and Ferrari on the front again...but this might be the last race where they have an advantage. Those weird "wing" mirrors have to go from Barcelona onwards....it might just bring both teams back to McLaren's pace.
None of this counts tomorrow though, because it looks like rain. So it should be another exciting race, with Hamilton going nuts trying to get to the front from down the grid.
I reckon Webber will have a real go at Vettel into the first corner as well.
