  • Wizzo: Hi Greg, you're better off telling us about your concept in a written post on the forum for all to see. I'm sure you'll get a few opinions.

  • Greg_82: Hello, anyone online to discuss?
    November 06, 2017, 05:51:35 PM
  • Greg_82: the best would be to go on skype to discuss the concept, would that be possible with some of you guys?
    November 06, 2017, 12:31:49 PM
  • Greg_82: I'm new and I would like to know if some of you would have some time to spend with me because I'm launching a new concept about F1 and I would like to have your idea

  • Scott: No hassle, I just thought with all the merry go round, it might be easier to simply use a couple generic slots.  But anyhow, that's great Dare.

  • Dare: Hartley and Gasly have been added to GG
    October 24, 2017, 11:28:40 PM
  • Scott: Paul
    October 24, 2017, 02:36:11 PM
  • Scott: I would say we use Hartly as Jenson Button on the GG and Gasly as Paur Di Resta...any nay's?
    October 24, 2017, 02:36:03 PM
  • Scott: For example we would need to add Gasly and Hartley for Mexico
    October 24, 2017, 02:34:54 PM
  • Scott: We could add in 'Driver 1' and 'Driver 2' and then make announcements in Shoutbox to tell people which driver sub is which (in the off chance that there are two).
    October 22, 2017, 02:15:55 PM
  • Scott: Not that I think he would actually make top 8
    October 22, 2017, 02:07:30 PM
  • Scott: I wonder if we shouldn't have one or two generic driver slots for substitutions, like Hartley
    October 22, 2017, 02:07:02 PM
  • ChrisCurtis: Well that’s an interesting start!
    September 17, 2017, 01:05:06 PM
  • Wizzo: Sorry guys I won't be around for the race chat as I will be watching the race on catch up
    September 17, 2017, 10:58:19 AM
  • Scott: Only around for lap 1-2 and then have to run today, but I'll duck into chat for the first few minutes

  • cosworth151: Does Alonso's 35 place grid penalty mean that he'll be starting from Parabolica?
    September 02, 2017, 10:09:21 PM
  • Jericoke: Wizzo, my strategy was that everyone else would forget so my 9 points would vault me into the mid pack.  Thanks for ruining that!
    September 02, 2017, 06:19:43 PM
  • Wizzo: Don't forget there is another race this weekend. Get your Grid Game predictions in!
    September 01, 2017, 11:24:03 AM
  • ChrisCurtis: Good luck in the Grid Game everyone.

  •   And really...we are talking about one point.  Nobody is suggesting making it retroactive, so really a simple fix.


    Actually it's two points Scott, but whose counting.  ;) :tease:

    By the by, no one actually picked the real pole sitter in the race last Sunday - who also happened to be the fastest in Q3 as well as the driver starting on pole - so isn't all this rule re-writing a tad premature?   :confused:

  • Pole points should be awarded for whoever starts on pole not who is fastest ion Q3.  The grid game rules make sense because consider what happens if the fastest driver in Q3 is disqualified for some reason, such as the Michael Schumacher parking stunt at Monaco in 2006.  Such a breach of the rules should result in that prediction not being valid for pole.  It's the same for all these gearbox and engine penalties.  The penalties are the problem, not the grid game rules.

    I suppose I thought our game could adapt quite a bit quicker than the FIA, and add a dose of common sense for other if's, and's or but's.
