Picks & Mix Game 2024 Round 4 Japan [+ RESULTS]

#1

Post by Star »

We are heading to the land of the rising sun, or in other words, Japan for the next round of our game.

Picks need to be in before the start of FP1 as usual and that will begin at 11.30pm local time or 2.30am GMT /3.30 am BST time on Friday.

Here are your usual five main picks

Who will start the race from 13th place on the grid? Guess correctly and you score 10 points, if your pick starts in either 12th or 14th, you score 5 points.

Who will be the last driver on the starting grid? (pit lane starts don't count) 10 points for the correct driver.

Which driver will get the fastest lap? 10 points for the correct driver.

Who will be the first pointless driver? In other words, who will finish the race in 11th place? 10 points for the correct driver, 5 points if your driver finishes 10th or 12th.

How many cars will DNF? 10 points if you are correct.


Bonus Pick

How many points will McLaren score this weekend?
10 points if you get it spot on, 5 points if you get within 2 points of their total.



Copy and Paste for your answers if it helps


1. (start 13th)
2. (last starter)
3. (fastest lap)
4. (finish 11th)
5. (No. of DNFs)

Bonus
(Points scored by McLaren)


Good luck to you all, may the best person win. :cool:

The sun and risen and set on the race in Japan, I've worked out who did well and who needs to try harder next race, here are the result for this weekend.


1. 13th on the grid: Bottas 12th Hulkenberg and 14th Albon No one had Bottas, both Ruslan and Vassago had Hulkenberg for 5 points. Everso Biggyballies and Star had Albon for 5 points.

2. Last starter: Zhou only Matt and Star scored here 10 points

3.Fastest Lap: Verstappen Everso Biggyballies, Matt, Monte Cristo, Picci, Ruslan and Vassago all scored here, 10 points

4. Driver finishing 11th: Hulkenberg Monte Cristo and Ruslan were on the money here for 10 points 10th Tsunoda Everso Biggyballies scored 5 for that, 12th was Stroll Matt, Picci and Star scored 5 points.

5. DNFs: 3 Everso Biggyballies, P. Cornelius Scipio and Vassago all scored 10 points for this one

Bonus points: McLaren Scored 14 points, the only person who got this correct was Ruslan and he scored 20 points, some of us got within 2 points and scored 10 points Monte Cristo, Picci and Star.



The totals for today's race:

1st Ruslan 45
2nd Monte Cristo 40
3rd Everso Biggyballies 30
= Star 30
5th Matt 25
= Picci 25
= Vassago 25
8th P. Cornelius Scipio 10

Congratulations to today's winner Ruslan, nicely done my friend :cool: :bow:


Overall the scores look like this and once again we have had some movement:

1st Matt 110 =
= Picci 110 =
3rd Monte Cristo 100 up 1
4th Star 95 down 1
5th Everso Biggyballies 85 =
6th Ruslan 65 up 2
7th Vassago 65 up 1
8th P. Cornelius Scipio down 2

So the people to catch are Matt and Picci still, but Monte Cristo is closing the gap on them it seems.

Please feel free to check your scores in case of mistakes. Please also look out for the thread for the next race in about a week's time as we head back to China after an extended break there.

Thanks for playing and as always, good luck to you all in the next round :cool:
