Welcome to the GPWizard 2019 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. You can enter your predictions here.

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).
NEW FOR 2019
Driver Position Bonus: Predict more than two drivers in the correct finishing position in any race to receive the following points bonus:
3 drivers correct = 1
4 drivers correct = 2
5 drivers correct = 3
6 drivers correct = 4
7 drivers correct = 5
8 drivers correct = 6

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.

Could be 1.5 secs says Ferrari's Binotto.

However it remains to be seen who's done the best job in reducing the losses from the front and rear wing changes.

"This Time Next Year Month ... We'll Be"

Okay, so I went for a classic Only Fools & Horses line, but in all seriousness, can you believe that this time next month, we will have just finished enjoying the Australian GP?

It's come around quickly this year ... and I am not complaining one little bit. 

Bring in on.

Best Regards,
Cal :)

This will be my focus in 2019 ... monitoring how well Danny Ric adjustes to sitting in the Renault.  I'm sure there will be stresses along the way, whether it be the car, the team or team mate, but I sincerely hope that Danny Ric & Hulk have a decent relationship and they can really push each other during the season - with a reliable, competitive car.

Best Regards,
Cal :)

I see Alfa have a different front wing design to everybody else....wonder if it is a genius piece of design work or not. I guess only time will tell :DntKnw:

BBC2, tonight at 9pm. (I presume it will be available on iPlayer later).

Williams: Formula 1 in the Blood.

In-depth documentary showing an interesting insight into Sir Frank Williams, his career and family. From nothing other than an obsession with speed, Williams builds one of the world's most enduring Formula One racing teams, but a near fatal car accident in 1986 at the height of this success leaves Frank fighting for his life and the future of the team hanging in the balance.
