An addition to the Fantasy League rules

It appears that HRT may not even make it to the first races. They have just moved their operations to a depressing little warehouse in the Valencia area, and it seems that they don’t have the means or the time to have a 2012 spec machine in time for the first races, let alone pre-season testing.

Quite predictable.

With regards to our competition, I feel the need to add the following rules:

1. In case a team does not appear in a race, then (as per the rules already posted), they will be classified as DNS (drivers and chassis) and will be deducted points accordingly. If you want to change them, you’ll have to wait for the first opportunity (after race No 4). Drivers who get lapped will be deducted 1 pt / lap.

2. In case a driver moves to another team mid-season, then the players who have selected him, will have to keep him in their roster (i.e. they do not inherit his replacement in the team). If a driver loses his seat and is left without a drive, then the players who have selected him will automatically inherit his replacement.

3. In case, at the end of the season, we have a tie between players, then the order will be determined by who posted his/her selections first.

4. We have already identified 3 opportunities that you can change your roster in the season. In addition to that however, you will only be allowed the following number of changes:

4a. Drivers = 2 changes per season (1 per each driver)

4b. Teams (chassis) = 2 changes per season

4c. Engines = 2 changes per season

You will, therefore, have to be careful with the timing of your changes…. 🙂

I am really looking forward to this competition. Thanks for the many entries so far; your selections have a surprising variation. No two rosters are the same…

    Really o.o? oh dear, I said wasn’t good at these XD
    Should have have waited a day longer 😛

      He he… Nah, it doesn’t affect you much, because you have selected the engine (HRT Cosworth) which doesn’t suffer from DNS penalties (only DNFs due to engine problems), so you’re in the clear…

      …however, it is tempting to select HRT assets, because you can then maximize your other options… it’s a fine balancing act… 🙂

        True, I was going along the lines of first race of season, some teams possibly having poor reliability and picking HRT to maximize place gain. Knew I should have gone with sauber.:P

      • abu says:

        That’s a good way of thinking. If HRT start with their 2011 machines, one would expect better reliability than some of the 2012-sepc cars, so your idea may well turn out to be very good…. 🙂
