Fantasy F1 2016 *Abu Dhabi GP: Result Posted*

Post by D.J » Tue Feb 02, 2016 8:00 pm

FANTASY F1 2016
Image

Welcome to the seventh season of Fantasy F1, and the first to begin here on SONM.

Here's a recap of the rules and regulations...

Fantasy F1: Rules

Basically, you are the team principal of a Formula 1 team created by you. Your team has been entered to compete in the 2016 Formula 1 World Championship, but there’s a problem, you don’t have any drivers, so obviously you’ll need two of those.

Driver choices are managed by Pools and Budgets. If you want to hire a driver, you have to pay their fee, which can range between being completely free to being worth over £40 million depending on the driver. Your total budget is £50 million, so spend wisely. The pools and budgets are there to stop people creating Super Teams (you know you'd love to have one if given the chance), and each driver can only be chosen once.

Once you’ve chosen your two drivers, you must then (pretend to) travel to the circuits and watch your guys on the track go out and net you constructors points. Special equipment will be provided to watch your drivers, although they won’t display the team’s livery correctly. (In other words, Fantasy F1 race and grid results are based off real life and you watch the television to see how your drivers are getting on, ideally willing them on to do well). Once the season ends, the winner is the person with the most constructor points. The Constructor’s Championship is the only one that matter in Fantasy F1, so choose your team wisely.

Additionally, in Fantasy F1, points are awarded in both qualifying and the race, they are as follows...

Qualifying Points: Q1 - 0pts, Q2 - 1pt, Q3 - 3pts, Pole Position - 5pts.

Race Points: 24-18-15-12-10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1

Still, what you've gone down a fork in the road and doing badly? No worries, as driver lineups are never final and can be changed during the season provided you find another team who is willing to swap drivers with you.

The season itself begins in March, but before then, there are a number of important tests taking place throughout January/February where teams will be able to evaluate their packages while they prepare for the championship ahead.

Important Additional Information

This season, we have 11 spots on the grid, so be sure to get your entry in before all the places are filled.

Car Liveries Information

All teams must design a livery for their 2016 challenger, you can do this using the following template.

Image

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v667/ ... 299002.png

If you are having trouble designing your car however, not to worry, you can commission a designer (moi) to put together a livery for you (please PM me if you require that service).

You are welcome to unveil your 2016 challengers at any time once you have registered, and once revealed, they will be added to the list of competing teams, however, all cars must have their liveries ready in time for the season's start.

How to Register

To compete in Fantasy F1 2016, simply register your team on this here thread by using the following form...

Also, when registering, your team must choose an engine from one of the four available suppliers: Ferrari, Mercedes, Renault, or Honda. All engines are provided free of charge because it's good publicity for the manufacturers, but once you have an engine, you are more than welcome to add their logos to your car design should you so wish.

Engine Rebadge Rule

Once you have chosen the engine you will run this season, you are more than welcome to re-badge it (using the engine badge option on the form), and run it under a different name (for example, in previous F1 seasons, we have seen Sauber-Petronas, Prost-Acer, and Benetton-Playlife among others), however, you may retain the original suppliers name should you wish to.

Numbers

For 2016, you may choose the two numbers that your cars will run during the coming season, the numbers you choose however, must be between 2 and 99 (The defending champs must use No.1). No two teams can share numbers so if your desired choice is already taken, you will need to select something else. Numbers are allocated on a first come first served basis.

Here is the sign up form...

Code: Select all

            [b]Team Name:[/b]
            [b]Team Principal (Username):[/b]
            [b]Main Sponsor:[/b]

            [b]Engine Badge:[/b]
            [b]Drivers[/b]:
            [b]1[/b] -
            [b]2[/b] -
            [b]Car Numbers[/b]
Driver Pools

Choose your drivers here (prices are determined by recent form), remember though, each driver can only be picked once, and you must keep to your £50million budget...

Also, you need to pick one driver from each pool, not two from a single pool

Pool 1:

Lewis Hamilton - £45million - Rawr
Nico Rosberg - £42million - DFR
Sebastian Vettel - £40million - A-Grade
Daniel Ricciardo - £38million - Pepsi Rob
Valtteri Bottas - £35million - Pangolin

Daniil Kvyat - £30million - SSA Juniors
Kevin Magnussen - £25million - Robbo-92
Sergio Perez - £25million - Maniacal
Max Verstappen - £25million - Midori

Pool 2:

Jenson Button - £20million - Robbo-92
Fernando Alonso - £20million - Midori Racing
Carlos Sainz Jr - £18million - Maniacal
Nico Hulkenberg - £15million - SSA
Jolyon Palmer - £15million - Pangolin
Romain Grosjean - £15million - Toyboata
Marcus Ericsson - £10million - Pepsi Rob
Felipe Nasr - £10million - A-Grade
Esteban Gutierrez - £5million - DFR
Pascal Wehrlein - £5million - SSA Junior

The next post will display the participants and their cars once sign ups have been completed.

Oh and here's a recap of last season's championship standings...

2015 Standings

1st: Pepsi Rob Zoopla! - 551pts
2nd: Rawr Acura - 453pts

2010: Laguz Prescott
2011: A Grade
2012: Aerox Renault
2013: Mother Mercedes

Inactivity

Oh and one last thing, if a team owner becomes inactive for an extended period of time during the season, their team will be sold and taken over by another member, as having inactive team owners is no good for any game let alone this one.

Hope you folks all get the drivers you want, and good luck to everyone.

Main Sponsor: Triangle Interim
Engine Supplier: Honda
Engine Badge: Honda
Drivers:
1 - Sebastian Vettel
2 - Felipe Nasr
Car Numbers 5 & 12

We would like to welcome Sebastian Vettel back to A-Grade after a year away from the team. We are sorry to let Nico Hulkenberg and Daniel Kyvat both go but as one of the few remaining former champions left on the grid we are naturally looking to get back to being that kind of team, and to win the title you need a top driver in my opinion.

Our target is a top three finish.

Yeah, if anyone wants a #pro livery just hit me up. Just give me some colours and sponsors. Might be a bit delayed since if I have to do the Junior team again that'll need a livery too.

[MIDORI Racing Press Release]

Image
__________________________________________________________
Hello everyone. Nice to meet you. We are MIDORI. We are a Tokyo-based team currently operating in Oxfordshire. We are new to Formula 1, but much of our staff and engineers have previous experience in F1 under the short-lived Kamizoroe Racing Team from the 2011 season. We believe that we will bring a fierce competitive spirit to the 2016 Fantasy F1 league. Our philosophy is "SHOGYŌ-MUJŌ", or the "impermanence of worldly things". In spite of the presence of many more experienced and well-funded teams, MIDORI hold the close belief that our dilligence and skillful approach will bring us solid results over the season. Furthermore, we are pleased to announce that two-time world champion Fernando Alonso and the extraordinarily talented Daniil Kvyat will be our drivers this season. We will be revealing our 2016 car, the MR-001A (powered by NISMO) in the coming days.

Quick Announcement

In light of the Pepsi Rob team returning to defend their title (returning champs are a rare event in Fantasy F1), i have decided that they may run the No.1 car this season instead of Lewis Hamilton (the Rawr team). :)

Watch out Robbie, the curse of being a former champion team may strike again...

Btw, already got my car done. Easy for us normally because I've taken to using the same livery every year with minor changes, but this time around I decided to change the colours of the car a bit, simply because there were too many red colour schemes last season and I thought it would be a good idea to move away from that a bit to help things.

As is customary by now, I think I'll launch first.

SSA Aston Martin Press Release
"We're back for a fourth season. As usual, we have a new engine, and we welcome a new supplier to the paddock in the form of Aston Martin. In partnership with AMG, the experience and dedication of the company will be invaluable to us this season.

"We also welcome a new driver to SSA, in the form of Nico Hulkenberg. A proven driver, Nico brings us many years experience and will hopefully augment our points total this season. Returning from last year is Kimi, who performed well for us despite a few mishaps with his compatriot Bottas. We hope the new Pangolin team doesn't bear the brunt of his aggressions too much.

"Finally, we have a striking new livery. Aston Martin are pleased to announce that their partnership with Gulf has continued into F1, and the iconic livery will be present on our cars this season. We also thank our new sponsors Motorola, CD Projekt Red, H&M, and CERN for joining our team in 2016. And now, without further ado, the car."

A-Grade Press Release
--------------------------

Last season was one of great success despite our drivers being last minute picks, Daniil Kyvat and Nico Hulkenberg were both consistent points scorers for the team and we ended up with our best finish for some time, 5th place.

Unfortunately we were still quite a long way behind the top 4 and with designs on getting back into the top 4 we have decided to offer Sebastian Vettel a contract. The timing couldn't have been any worse for us when he rejoined as he had one of his worst ever seasons back in 2014, but it turned out to be a mistake to let him go to Stable Fiat. We managed to entice Vettel back from Stable with a better contract offer.

We would also like to welcome Felipe Massa to the team... wait, what do you mean we've got Felipe Nasr? I was hoping for Felipe Massa and you guys just sign a contract with a guy who SOUINDS like him? Oh...

Anyway, after several seasons in red and white, we began to notice our cars blended in with a lot of the competition due to the high amounts of Red. From this season onwards we are proud to announce a new partnership with French company Triange Interim who have become our new title sponsors and a new colour scheme of purple and white.

Introducing... the Honda powered A-Grade AG-007

Image

We have decided to stick with Honda as our engine supplier after a noticeable upturn in performance and with a top driver like Vettel back in the team, we believe we are now ready to take the team to the next step and re-establish ourselves as a title contender.

Vettel will have the number 5 on his car while Felipe Nasr will use 12.

This looks all really good and if I knew anything at all about F1 then I would have loved to be a part of it, plus a Union Flag F1 car would look really good!,

DFR Press Release

After a difficult season in 2015 which led to us slipping down to 4th place in the overall standings, we are pleased to announce that our team has entered into a new technical partnership with Mercedes-Benz. Our new car therefore (the FR07), is a radical design which reflects this new direction we have decided to follow.

We are also pleased to welcome two new drivers (Nico Rosberg and Esteban Gutierrez) into our midst, and together, we will be working harder than ever to try and finally secure our first Fantasy F1 title.

Stable Racing F1 Team press release

Good morning everyone, Stable Racing F1 team is delighted to announce today their entry into the 2016 SONM Fantasty F1 championship for the 2016 season.

After a fantastic rookie year for the team where we finished a astounding 3rd place in the constructors we aim to build in this result but we have to keep things realistic, we pushed on with development far too late into the 2015 season and as a result of this our 2016 car took a hit with its progress. Over the course of 2016 we will endeavour to improve the car so our new star drivers can shine come the end of the season. Speaking of drivers I'd like to thank both Sebastian and Romain for taking such a huge risk on our new team, I think it paid off for both drivers as they have both joined (or rejoined in Sebastian's case) great teams, I wish them all of the best in the future. Our drivers for the 2016 season are Kevin Magnussen (after taking a brief hiatus from F1) and Jenson Button. I hope both of our drivers can extract the maximum performance from our car (the LS-AF 02) to deliver a solid constructors position come the end of the season.

I'd also like to welcome our new lead Sponsor in Lego, the world known toy maker. Together we want to lay the foundations of a successful Formula One team that can easily be built upon in future seasons. Alongside Lego we would also like to say we are continuing our partnership with Ferrari, our power unit supplier, whose power units we are running as Alfa Romeos, bringing the historic name back into Formula One. We are also continuing our partnership with Shell and Microsoft. Unfortunately with the loss of Romain we lost the Total sponsorship but I feel we have gained massively with the Lego announcement.

With that we will look to showing off our new car in the near future and look forward to seeing all of our competitors on the grid in Melbourne next month.

(On that note would anyone like to do me a quick livery? Really want to save myself from the blurry mess of my 2015 attempt! Never been my forte designing stuff)
