Re: F1 game

Still a month to season opening, but let's get this over with.


Here's the quick instructions for those of you with little or no interest in F1 and only playing because I INSIST:

Choose three drivers from different teams (and order for them).

In addition to that, you may also (please) choose one or (preferably) two or more drivers for the other game. (If you don't, you'll have the three you chose for the first game, but you'll have better chances with one or two top drivers.)

Realistic options:
(years are driver's championships)

Champion and favorite: Mercedes:

Hamilton (2008, 2014, 2015)
Rosberg


The challenger: Ferrari:

Vettel (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013)
Räikkönen (2007)


Possibly competitive teams:

Williams:

Bottas
Massa

Red Bull:

Ricciardo
Kvyat


Longshots and dark horses:

McLaren:

Alonso (2005, 2006)
Button (2009)

Renault:

Palmer
Magnussen

Force India:

Pérez
Hülkenberg



-----------------------------------------------------

For anyone actually interested about The Game, I'll explain what's going on.

This year there are two games: Active and Passive. Active game is the traditional Free Choice Driver Game. For that you can choose driver before every GP or choose one and have him all season (or choose two or three pre-season and I'll have them alternating for you) and change those at any point.

The new thing is the Passive game. Because most players (everyone but me, mom and in good years Leo) tend to just choose drivers in beginning of season, I created a separate game for that; to have a game where everyone is on equal footing. This is a season start game: we all just choose three drivers (to alternate in races) and see how it turns out. The rule that you must choose three drivers and from different teams is to complicate it enough that people won't make same choices (and they still may, in which case they'll have to be in different order; if exactly same is made, I'll move the order one step for player who posted later).

I still wanted to have the old game too - so I get to guess before every GP. Due the nature of the Passive game, the Driver Game has this year absolutely no rules against using same top drivers all the time (beyond good sportsmanship). That'll also even up that game between us actively playing and ones just picking driver(S) for whole season.


So choose three drivers from different teams for the passive game and one or two (more if you wish) top drivers for the Active game.

Re:


Button, Massa, Hamilton. I dunno what that means, but three names different teams.

If I have to choose a team, then Mercedes. Happy now?

Re: F1 game


Now I feel guilty for my cold-blooded, professional choices as every other player (except my mother) has much better sportsmanship on choices. (Due not knowing what you're doing, but nevertheless...)


I have always made careful interpretations about your every word about choices. Some may seem farfetched, but I make the rulings as fair as possible.

This time it's what Mo said.
There is no Team Game this year, but there is the regular "free choice" Driver Game. And it's been my principle that whenever anyone says anything that can anyhow be interpreted as participation, it will.
In this case, I rule that Mo's choice of Mercedes can be seen as choosing both Mercedes drivers in the Driver Game (aka Active Game) and because Hamilton has preference as ruling champion and he was chosen for Passive Game, the order is Hamilton-Rosberg.

Simply put, that means Mo has good chance of winning the main game and even combined annual championship.


Barb, thank you for participating. You'll probably lose, but who knows if something dramatic happens.

Mo, I would say I'm Petal short of "happy". But it was very satisfying to make a rule interpretation.

As you may have guessed K, it doesn't matter to me if I win or loose. You wanted us to pick three drivers from three different teams, I did so. AND, you may just get your butt kicked.

Good luck with that. But it's all the more interesting with you having different drivers than anyone else.
