    Q: So, What's New in the F1 Dream Team this Year?

    The system & layout will pretty much be the same as 2018.  Of course, it goes without saying that the obvious changes will include Teams/Drivers line-ups, potential changes to car paint jobs and venue dates/locations.

    Other changes include new page backdrops and some minor updates to website elements here and there, essentially a "spruce up" from the 2018 theme.

    Now, one of the significant changes I would like to share with you, is the Team/Driver change during the season.   This year, there will be two opportunities to change 1 Team and 1 Driver.   I am refering to this approach as the "5-7-9 Shuffle" ... as you will be able to make these changes after 5 races in, then after another 7 races in, leaving the final 9 race venues as a battle to the end of the season.

    Keep checking in to this topic, as I will soon be preparing the "Group Picks" website page (with some interesting group selections for you to chew over ahead of the 2019 campaign).

    Best Regards,
    Cal :)

    Q: I am new to the F1 Dream Team, so what do I need to know? ...

    If you are new to the F1 Dream Team in 2019, please visit last season's "Group Picks" from the link below and review the Q&A section at the bottom of the web page. This will give you an outline of the system/rules & approach to the 2019 season - of course, there will be new dates/timelines and a couple of small rule changes, but this will help you learn the ropes before we get things underway in the 2019 campaign.

  • Sneak Peek:  (Shared Info)

    Well, I thought I'd give potential players an early look at the Group Picks for the F1 Dream Team 2019. After careful consideration, this is the Team/Driver group picks for the season ahead. I've updated the teams/drivers as best I can, so hopefully there will be no last minute surprises, other than Racing Point's "final" name change in the days/weeks ahead. As you can see, we wave goodbye to Sauber, as their new branding is now "Alfa Romeo Racing".

    So, other than Team colour schemes and car paint jobs for 2019, I'm hoping everything else is set in stone. The screenshot below will help you start to prepare the selections you make in just over 2 weeks time.



    Best Regards,
    Cal :)

    I hear you Luke! :)

    To be honest, I took part last season (just to make the players list a round 20 entrants) ... and ended up finishing 17th out of 20 ... and that was after making a couple of key changes (1 team & 1 driver) during the summer break.   

    So ... don't concentrate on that "Wooden Spoon" too much, you could win ya know!  :yahoo:

    You say that...   I am normally overly optimistic about the team's chances ahead of a new season.  This time round I see nothing other than plum last once more.  Too much investment elsewhere.

  • Update:

    The numbers of interested players are climbing on the external F1 community website.  If you have an interest and would like to represent GPW, now would be a good time to post your "Count Me In!" prior to the Team/Driver selection process in 2-3 weeks time.

  • Timeline Reminder:   (shared info)

    For any interested players, the deadline to post your "Count Me In!" will be by the end of the day on 11th February, 2019 (GMT).   From there, I will be opening up Team/Driver selections on 18th February, which will run until the end of the day on 8th March (9th to 11th for reserved players).

    Please note, without a "Count Me In!" post, you cannot participate by submitting team/driver selections thereafter.

    Best Regards,
    Cal :)

    Exactly John!  :good:

    If any members are still chewing over joining in, they simply have to post "Count Me In!" on this topic and I will promptly add them to the provisional list on Page 1 of this topic. 

    After the 11th Feb deadline, I will no longer be accepting "Count Me In's" .... and by starting on 18th, players will have access to the "Group Picks" section of the website and begin studying their potential Team/Drivers.  Players can then post their finalised choices between 18th Feb > 8th March.

    Cal :)

  • I meant to add ...

    There are two methods of providing your entry details (18th Feb > 8th March).

    If you are happy to share your choices with everyone involved, you can simply post them on this topic, for example:

    (sample from 2018 data)
    RFM Username - Joe Bloggs
    My Country Flag - United Kingdom

    My Team Name - F1 Top Dogs
    Profile Colour - 12

    Team A - Ferrari
    Team B - Force India
    Team C - McLaren
    Team D - Sauber

    Driver E - Sebastian Vettel
    Driver F - Valterri Bottas
    Driver G - Sergio Perez
    Driver H - Sergey Sirotkin
    Driver I - Fernando Alonso
    Driver J - Stoffel Vandoorne
    Driver K - Charles Leclerc

    Or ... you can submit your choices via email (either in simple text or from the PDF Entry Form, which will be available on the "Group Picks" section of the website.  Details on this approach are outlined on the Q&A on the bottom of the "Group Picks" web page.

    Any questions, please do ask, as I will make things as clear as possible!

    Best Regards,
    Cal :)

  • I am still a bit confused about all of the details, but I assume that if I post:
    "COUNT ME IN"
    that will add me to the list of participants, correct?
