OK folks I shall shortly be sending out a pm inviting entries for this year. Following years of badgering from various people I have succumed to a change in rules for 2019 even though it will mean more work. In addition to picking the first 5, FL and PP, choose your driver of the day, and get half a point for every position gained. No minus points for lost places. Gamble of course is if one of the big boys ends up starting from the back after you have chosen.

No assessment involved. As Mike said, you get half a point for every position gained by your selected driver.

I managed to completely lose interest at the back end of last season.Everything wrong with the sport is getting worse rather than improving.Now we're completely on pay TV it's a waste of time.2021 is too long to wait for anything to change.It's become boring,predictable and more difficult to watch.

I might pass this season - even playing last year felt like a chore - I'm not sure I watched a whole race all season. No reflection on the game, just the sport.

Strong possibility that the driver with the fastest lap will gain a point this season (final vote on this change to take place next week I believe) . So the FIA are catching up with us! I guess most improved driver will be worth point in a few seasons too

Question on places gained.

Say a driver qualifies 5th, and has 5 place grid penalty and starts 10th. He finishes 4th. How many places has he gained?

Answer to davech.
Starting position less finishing position so for your example 10-4 = 6, multiplied by 0.5 = 3.
