The F1 2014 Grand Prix Predictor Forum Game

Recommended Posts

Hello and welcome to the F1 2014 Grand Prix Predictor Forum Game!

 

You will score points based on the results of all the remaining races held in the 2014 season.

THE RULES:


PREDICTIONS
1 - MAKING YOUR PREDICTIONS
It is very easy, you need to predict the top 10 finishing order of the upcoming Grand Prix, and new for this year, the top 3 from Qualifying.

TOP 10 IN THE RACE AND TOP 3 IN QUALIFYING
You need to put the finishing position and then the driver who you think will finish there. If you name a driver twice then you will not score points for those two drivers. For instance, if you put Sergio Perez to finish in 7th and 10th then you will not score points for him, even if he finishes 7th or 10th.

2 - SUBMITTING YOUR PREDICTIONS
Just submit the post with the list of your top 10 finishers and top 3 Qualifiers. Please note that you may NOT EDIT those predictions by editing a post or making a new post later on. If you do so then you will not score points for that Grand Prix. If I see something at the bottom of a post with a prediction and it has been edited then you will not score points for that Grand Prix, so make sure you are happy with your predictions before submitting them as there is no turning back. If you post on here saying that you will make your predictions later then that is fine but you MUST make a BRAND NEW POST with your predictions for them to be counted. If you edit a post from earlier on and replace it with your predictions then I will not count them as it will say that you have edited a post. You must make a brand new post.

If you make brand new predictions for every race then at the end of the year you will receive a bonus 10 points. It is a little incentive to gain an extra 10 points. For example if someone makes brand new predictions for every race then they will receive those extra 10, but even if you don't make new ones for one race then you won't.

3 - NON-SUBMISSION OF PREDICTIONS
If you enter less than 10 drivers for any Grand Prix then you will not score points for that round. Also, if you make a prediction for a Grand Prix but fail to make another prediction for the next one, then I will just use the predictions from the previous race to determine your points on this race. If you go 3 races without making a new prediction then you will not score points until you make new predictions.

4 - PREDICTIONS WHILST BANNED
There have recently been a couple of cases where players have been banned from the forums but would still like to post predictions. If this happens then I will just use your predictions from the last race. Then when you are off your ban you can predict again

 

RESULTS
1 - CHANGES TO RESULTS:
I will use the official race and qualifying results published by the FIA. Any disqualifications or penalties will be used here so for instance, if you were to choose Jean-Eric Vergne to finish 9th, he did but then got a disqualification then you would not score points for him. It is the same situation in Qualifying, it is the starting grid, not the "over the line" results

2 - TIE BREAKER:
Should 2 or more players score the same number of points from a Grand Prix, the player who submitted their predictions first would take the higher position in the results tables and the player who submitted their predictions last would take the lower position in the results tables. Should predictions from a previous race need to be used, these will be ranked behind a new set for the race.

3 - RESULTS TABLES
I will keep a sheet of all results from Grand Prix's along with totals for each player. On the Sunday of the race, Monday or Tuesday I will update this post with the latest results.

DEADLINES
The deadline for predictions is before FP3 begins. Any predictions posted after this time will not be counted.


LATE DRIVER CHANGES

If a driver you have picked is unable to race then the driver who replaces him will replace your vote. Tough luck if a driver you have predicted pulls out and a bad one comes in.

JOINING THE GAME
You may join the game at any time, you must make a post though declaring that you are in the game and you will start on 0 points. It is best if you join now though because you will score more points. To see if you are in the game then check the post after this, there will also be the results tables there

ARGUING

If there are any arguments here which I think damages the reputation of the thread then the people mainly involved will receive a 50 point deduction from their overall score. I will give you a warning though if I feel you are close to getting the deduction. This is simply because I don’t want it on my thread, it makes you look silly and if it comes to it, the thread might be closed which I obviously don’t want as it takes me a lot of time to do everything involved with the game.

POINTS SYSTEM

You will be awarded points using this system:

QUALIFYING:
5 – Correctly predicted Qualifying position
3 – Prediction 1 place away from actual Qualifying position
1 – Prediction 2 places away from actual Qualifying position
0 – Prediction 3 or more places away from actual Qualifying position

RACE:
15 - Correctly predicted finishing position
8 - Prediction 1 place away from actual finishing position
3 - Prediction 2 places away from actual finishing position
0 - Prediction 3 or more places away from actual finishing position
0 - Failure to make a complete set of predictions
Bonus 30 – Perfectly predicted Top 3
Bonus 20 – Correctly predicted Top 3 but not in the right order
Therefore, the maximum points you can get from Qualifying is 15
The maximum points you can get from the Race is 180

Here is an example of how to make your predictions:

Qualifying:
1) Sebastian Vettel
2) Daniel Ricciardo
3) Jenson Button

Race:
1) Sebastian Vettel
2) Daniel Ricciardo
3) Jenson Button
4) Lewis Hamilton
5) Fernando Alonso
6) Kamui Kobayashi
7) Sergio Perez
8) Daniil Kvyatt
9) Kimi Raikkonen
10) Nico Hulkenberg

As I said, you can sign up at any time in the season, so sign up and get predicting!

NOTE: As I'm not sure if this forum allows edits after an hour, all results will be posted in new posts.

A change has just been applied so you can now edit after the one hour mark so you shouldn't have to worry about it :)

I'm in of course.

And as last season was cut short, Player9 was the last person leading the official results so I'm declaring him champion, congrats bud if you're here!

I'd like to join too. I'll enjoy this in a masochistic sort of way, since I'm completely hopeless with predictions.

My predictions are usually rubbish and it puts me near the bottom. But if I have good predictions I'm always usually top 3, but never 1st :p
