F1 Prediction Game (Interforum League) 2016

Post by pob » Mon Mar 14, 2016 7:02 am

If you haven't played before, the points system may sound complicated, but it's not that difficult to play, just pick the top ten and pole for each race and have a wild guess at what the pole time will be. :mrgreen:

Zdkf1 has finished moving to its new server; hopefully there won't be any teething problems but if any returning players have problems with logging in please tell me, zdkf1 aren't always great at helping quickly :? so it may be easier to start a new account if you do run into problems.
Here's my usual opening post spiel...


The season is about to start, so it's time for you to make your predictions for this year's interforum league! :D

There's not long until the first prediction deadline :!: , if you are late joining, don't worry, you will get some points for each race you missed (usually 20), and you can still help the forum in the league.

How to play:
  • Register on zdkf1and start your nickname with “f1tec_”. (If you forget, please edit your nickname here.)
  • Add the other entrants whose nicknames start with "f1tec_” as your friends.
  • Predict the pole position, pole time and top 10 finishers for each race.
  • The prediction deadline is 10pm (GMT) on the Thursday before each race (except Monaco).
  • How the scoring works on zdkf1 (although the risk factor boundaries are outdated on that link #-o ; the categories actually are: very safe ≤19, safe 20-22, moderate 23-25; risky 26-28; crazy 29+).
In addition to helping the forum fight against other f1 forums for the (poorly photoshopped) league trophy, you will be competing for individual awards including:
Each season I also do a photo version of the league table: f1technical finished 7th out of 10 last year; 4th out of 11 in 2014; 6th out of 12 in 2013; 5th out of 11 in 2012, and 9th out of 13 in 2011.


If one of your selected drivers doesn't race, then his replacement will be used instead with the same driver class.

Driver classes aren't up for Australia yet :? , but will presumably be added soon.

Slightly late predictions can be emailed to support@zdkf1.com and will be included at zdkf1's discretion but if you post them on here too I will at least include them towards the league.

Good luck everyone! [-o<

A warm welcome to the new players and welcome back to everyone else. Just 5 hours left before the first prediction deadline. =P~
Australia is always a difficult race to predict. Can anyone challenge Mercedes? Will Haas surprise with points in their first race? Will Magnussen repeat his 2014 podium?

Australia Results

First of all I'd like to give a warm welcome to new entrants thefastlane and forumula1 :) . With grandprix not taking part this year (their forum is down and their members have abandoned ship) that makes the number of forums in the league the same as the number of f1 teams.
There were 42 predictions across the 11 forums for this race. If you made a prediction but don't see your name in the top 10 or "also rans" please tell me!
Sardaor takes victory for 2013 champions cliptheapex, with 48 points thanks to 4 spot on and only Grosjean missing from the top 10.
A good start to the season for f1technical: yurrita takes third place \:D/ and vfc_cipher is also in the points in 7th =D> .

Bahrain Results

Welcome back to motorsportforums :) , who are returning after a year out after placing seventh in 2014. This takes the number of forums in the league to twelve, so whichever forum takes the wooden spoon this year will be Caterham on the end of season photo.
Bahrain is a historic race for underdogs f1onboard, as dreggsf1 gets their maiden victory in their third season of taking part.
2013 champions cliptheapex have a 3 point lead in the league over rookies thefastlane.
Vfc-cipher places seventh for f1technical =D> .

Some other folks better get some points. I have a history of being a fast start and then getting WAY too analytical and overthinking my way out of the top of the table.
