    Default 2017 Trackhq F1 Challenge #1, Chinese Shanghai, April 9th !!!

    2017 Trackhq F1 Challenge #1, Chinese Shanghai, April 9th !!!
    Year end winner will receive $200 cash (plus side pot if you are in it) !!!
    Qualifying time is 1am Saturday, Pacific time


    The basics of this game is simple. Pick 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for each Formula 1 Grand Prix race throughout each year. Points will also be awarded for qualifying and teammate war, sometimes a bonus question.

    # So here are the rules:

    1. Picks must be in by no later than the start time of qualifying. Start times may vary. note some TV broadcasts are not live. I am not responsible for posting correct time for the start of qualifying.

    2. You can make changes to your posts via later posts, but needs to be in before qualifying, see #1. Will use your latest post.

    3. Podium / Qualifying positions are 1st, 2nd and 3rd, as that's the drivers that are physically standing on podium after each race/qualifying (or in interviewing room if no podium). Other positions are determined by immediate TV broadcast before the show is over. Not by FIA after the race is long over.

    4. 4 point - Picked the driver in the correct podium position

    5. 2 point - Picked the driver in the wrong podium position

    6. 6 bonus point - Trifecta/hat-trick for getting all 3 top drivers in their correct podium positions.

    7. 2 point - Picked the driver in the correct Qualifying position

    8. 1 point - Picked the driver in the wrong qualifying position

    9. 3 bonus points - Trifecta/hat-trick for getting all 3 top drivers in their correct qualifying positions.

    10. 1+ point - picked a driver that finish ahead of its teammate. If both drivers retires, it is whomever done the most laps. If teammates takes each other out (or 2 separate incidents with same lap counts) in the same corner. It is consider a tie. no points are awarded.

    11. We are counting points from your best 17 rounds (assuming a total of 20 rounds, N-3)

    12. no double entries for the same driver (example: can't pick Hamilton for both P1 and P2). penalty for double entry is -10 points.

    13. if there is a tie in team points. Whichever team has the highest finished driver wins.

    14. in teammate war: both drivers must start the race

    PLEASE USE THIS TEMPLATE: if you need to make a change, please copy the WHOLE template. I will use your latest pick. you can always change it before qualifying:

    Coulda, woulda, shoulda.

    Had I known then what I know now . . .

    Plus the Miata reference group sets an awfully high standard for us old, slowpokes.

    Thanks! His "F word" usage is slightly redundant, but I really did enjoy his take on the race.

    "Fresh" eyes can see clearly.
