I am in the UK so you're only 1 hour ahead of me. I sent out two reminders, one on Thursday, the other on Friday morning. My reminders would always be early enough in the day as I'm never usually online after around 5.30pm. Sorry you didn't see them in time, I tried.

No problems. It isn't your fault, but mine.

The results for Spain are in, will you be dancing a Flamenco or crying into your Cava? At least if you are crying, you have Cava ;)
@Picci and @Senna4ever don't have any points to consider, since both of them sadly missed the cut off and didn't put in any picks for this round :( :sob:

1. Who will start 10th: Alonso Monte Cristo was on the money here for 10 points, well done 9th Piastri and 11th Perez, none of us scored here.

2. Who will finish 4th: Russell Nope, no one scored, 3rd Hamilton, well done to Everso Biggyballies for getting him for 5 points 5th Leclerc no one picked him here either.

3. First driver to pit: Zhou, we were all wrong again. :dunno:

4. Last classified driver: Sargeant P. Cornelius Scipio and Ruslan picked up 10 points here, well done. :cool:

5. Number of Pitlane starters: 1 Monte Cristo and Star were correct this time for 10 points :smiley:

Bonus points:
How many places will there be between Sainz and Alonso on the starting grid? Everso Biggyballies and Monte Cristo was spot on for 10 points, Matt, Paololanuit, P. Cornelius Scipio, Ruslan, Star and Vassago all got 5 points for being within 2 places.
How many places will there be between Sainz and Alonso at the end of the race? No one was correct on this half of the bonus so no one scores the extra points.


To the totals and leader board then:


1st Monte Cristo 30
2nd Everso Biggyballies 15
= P. Cornelius Scipio 15
= Ruslan 15
= Star 15
6th Matt 5
= Paoloanuit 5
= Vassago 5


Congratulations to today's winner @MonteCristo :bow: A good win there.

Overall the scores look like this:

1st Matt 190 =
2nd Monte Cristo 185 up 1
3rd Star 180 down 1
4th Ruslan 165 =
5th Vassago 155 =
6th Everso Biggyballies 145 up 1
7th Picci 140 down 1
8th P. Cornelius Scipio 100 =
9th Senna4ever 45 =
10th Paoloanuit 10 =

The person to catch is still @Matt but @MonteCristo has taken a big bite out of his lead and he got ahead of @Star too. @Picci dropped a place simply by not getting his picks in sadly, that allowed @Everso Biggyballies to get ahead of him.

Please feel free to check your scores in case of mistakes. Please also go to the thread for the next race, it's up already as Austria is a back to back race with Spain if you haven't already, and I see some of you have, thanks guys :twothumbs: Picks need to be in before FP1 which is on Friday 28th June at 12.30 local time which is (12.30 GMT / 11.30 BST)

A warning, the same thing will happen next weekend too as this is a triple header with the British gp on 7-7.

Thanks as always for playing :cool:

It's my pleasure, I'm having fun doing it to be honest. I just wish we could all score a few more points, we're supposed to know about this stuff :haha: :haha:

Nah, I enjoy the randomness of the game.

There's an informed level of knowing stuff. And then there's just the BS random modern F1 angle (eg: pitlane starters, etc), plus the pure luck element (DNFs, first to pit, etc).

True, if your luck is in, you can score big, if it's not..... well, we all know what happens.
