Team Enlistment:

In the second season of the S.R.O.C. F1 the 'slowest' drivers will be appointed the fastest cars available in F1 2016.

The final official standings of Season 001 will determine who are the fastest and slowest drivers overall in the S.R.O.C F1.
To make sure no one is drafted unfairly and to draft new entering drivers accordingly 2 short qualifying sessions will be held before the start of Season 002.
These 2 Qualifying Sessions will be held with 'Car Performance' set to Equal!
The two posted laptimes will be summed up to doublecheck the distances between drivers and to make comparisons with the final Official Standings of Season 001.

If there is a driver drafted uncorrectly on base of his skills the League Director may shift drivers to other cars if able, even during the season.
These are the cars based numerically from strongest to weakest in F1 2016.

01. Mercedes
02. Red Bull Racing
03. Scuderia Ferrari
04. Williams Racing
05. Sahara Force India F1 Team
