Formula 1 2021 Season Thread

  • CHB will be closing down as of 31st July 2021. It's been a brilliant experience to run the website for the past 9 years, however it's time for me to move onto different projects. Thanks to every single person involved, from staff, former staff, posters old and current. All support means more than anyone knows. Thanks for your understanding.

Who will win the WDC?

@desertlizard I like your Perez pick for WDC. I've got a bet on him to finish 1st or 2nd, good returns on it and achievable if Red Bull does turn out to be the quickest. Got the same bet on for Max too which is solid I think as he nearly came 2nd last year in the 2nd best car.

What do you lads reckon about a fantasy/prediction game for this season?

My initial idea was that we predict the top 3 each race, plus the pole sitter.

Pole-4

1st-10
2nd-8
3rd-6

Fastest lap-2

For a total of 30 points max per race. Simple and easy to keep track of. Maybe wipe the fastest lap and do 6 points for pole?

Who's interested?
Fastest lap is kind of cool with it rewarding points now. It's a bit of a crapshoot and could be fun to guess

kid's got the will, i give him that for sure, but i wouldn't keep my hopes high as Max is the better driver, for sure anything could happen in the end.

Um. You get a way better idea first race than trying to make any sort of guess out of testing. Cars change with updates and Adelaide is a bit of an outlier as well but you get my drift
that's true. i never mentioned testing and know nothing about testing.

The usual fantasy league will still run over at;

https://fantasygp.com/

Access Code:57196121

Get your teams in before qualifying. Probably best not to run both forms of leagues, but both involve predicting the top 3 per race so could work.

It's late notice but be good if you joined the fantasy league (details in post above). In before the start of qualy on Saturday.
Thanks for the invite mate, but I am a bit to much of a casual fan to go into the depths of choosing a team and working off the stats and all that.

I've defo enjoyed reading your updates and driver ratings etc so will be checking in on the thread.

Yep that it. The code gives access to our league. It's simple and pretty fun once you start.

I had Max for pole, win and fastest lap. I think they are in a league of their own here, 4 tenths over Lewis is huge. Plus their tyre deg in long runs looked better. Anything can happen though, plus Merc have Bottas to split the strategies to put pressure on Max.

Looks like we have a race tomorrow boys.

Hope we get a 2012 like season, or at least a race for the wcc between red bull and merc.
