  • Scott: Fraid I won't be around for the season final...we have groups at the hotel lunch and dinner and we are moving Monday am, so barely a minute to sit down...perhaps I can pop in for a minute or two at some point.

  • 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

  • Greg_82: Hello
    November 06, 2017, 12:30:40 PM
  • 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.
    October 26, 2017, 06:27:38 PM
  • 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

2018 Grid Game Rules

  • Welcome to the GPWizard 2018 Grid Game

    As always the aim of the Grid Game is to correctly predict each Formula 1 race result, score the most points, see if you can do better than everyone else and become the Grid Game Champion.

    All the F1 driver names are supplied in simple drop down lists so each prediction can be entered in about 30 seconds, it's free and very quick and easy to play. Here is a quick guide:

    Predict the following:
    Pole position (2 points) Driver that starts the race from pole.
    Top 8 finishing drivers (2 points for a driver in the right position.1 point for a driver in the wrong position).
    Fastest race lap (1 point).
    Rain: Yes/No (1 point) decided by members in the race chat room as F1 officials mucked it a few times in the past.
    Safety Car: Yes/No (1 point) Will be counted when the actual safety car is deployed during race, a virtual safety car does not count.
    Did Not Finish (1 point) DNF-numbers of cars not finishing race, again declared in the race chat room.

    Bonus Points:
    Double Up - doubles your points for one race (can only be used once per season, must be declared before qualifying deadline).
    Prediction deadlines:
    Qualifying deadline -1 hour before the start of qualifying. If you fail to place your predictions before the qualifying deadline you will lose the chance to predict the driver in pole position but you can continue to place your race predictions up to the race deadline.
    Race deadline - 1 hour before the start of the race. If you miss the race deadline then you have missed the chance to participate in the current race weekend.
    Qualifying and Race deadlines are clearly shown on the left this sites pages.

    Late Picks - IMPORTANT   If you cannot access GPWizard or you know you will not be able to place your picks then we will accept your predictions via PM to Dare or email to at any time before the relevant deadline.

    The Winner:
    The player with the highest accumulated score from the current F1 season.

    If there is no outright winner:
    If two or more players tie with the highest score then the player with the highest score plus the greatest number of correct pole picks will be the winner. If the players are still tied the player with the highest single (non DU) race score will be winner. If still tied Wizzo will draw a winner from his top hat.

    The Prize:
    As always there will be some generous F1 related prizes and these will be announced later. Please keep a look out for another notification.

    Additional Information:
    -Check your scores after each race. All scores become official after one week - Correct or Incorrect.
    -Race results will be adjusted to match the official race results in the event of a race investigation or disqualification.
    -Players may only use one Username to enter the competition.
    -Moderators decision is final in all aspects of the GPWizard Grid Game.

  • 2points for Pole...good call.  Can we add an adendum that pole position is the car that achieves the first place during the Q sessions, and not (necessarily) the car that starts on pole? the odd case when it isnít the same due to a grid penalty.

    That was brought up last year and we decided to go along with who
    starts on pole.
