Thanks for the effort POB. Made me actually care about who got 7th, 8th and 9th. Will be back for next season,

Well, I was only 37 points ahead. That could be done with one good race of picks (like the 71 point race I had). Mach was close to both of us and he only did 16 races. If he had done 19......

Anyhow, this was an easy to predict season, and the teams were dominant this season. Most of the time, my picks were simply stacked by team (Mercedes, then Ferrari then William then it required some thought). I gather you and Mach pretty much did the same thing. We shall see how next season goes.

Hopefully we can get grandprix.com further up the table as well!! :evil:


It would help if we had Paolo. (hint)

As far as the points picked up on the league table here, Mach did do all 19 races. Pob was collecting his picks and scoring accordingly for him.

Well picking the Merc boys, then Ferrari, then Williams was pretty much a thing you had to do as it made most sense. Beyond that is when it got trickier to know how to go and where the variation came in.

I definitely had my picks linked to Rosberg's season though, I did better in the last three races (like he did) but it wasn't enough to beat my team mate ;) :rotflmao:

Well, you rode the wrong horse. I picked Hamilton for every single pole and every single race win, and it worked more often than not. Weird season in so many respects.

I picked Hamilton to win sometimes, I'll admit I picked Rosberg to be first more times than he actually won, but I wasn't always wrong when I did that.

Yea, I could never figure out which day would be a good day for Hamilton, vice for Rosberg....so just stuck with Hamilton. One could vary them based upon whim.....but it is a matter of luck whether you would have been better off or not.

Yep, Mach only missed Australia. (I've edited the end of season post to say 18 instead of 16 :max: )
