Fantasy F1 2015 - Season Complete!

Post by D.J » Tue Jan 20, 2015 7:19 pm

FANTASY F1 2015

Image

Welcome to the sixth 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 2015 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 only 9 spots on the grid, so be sure to get your entry in before all the places are filled, we will however increase the number of slots should Manor/Caterham be saved before the season kicks off.

Car Liveries Information

All teams must design a livery for their 2015 challenger, you can do this using the following template.

Image

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 2015 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 2014, 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.

NEW RULE REGARDING ENGINES

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).

NEW RULE REGARDING SPONSORS

As of 2015, the Fantasy FIA have decided to relax the rules regarding tobacco sponsorship, many classic F1 liveries existed (such as JPS Lotus, Marlboro McLaren, and Rothmans Williams) because of it, and as such, it will allow more freedom for folk when designing their 2015 challengers.

NEW RULE REGARDING NUMBERS

For 2015, 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 current champions are free to run 1 should they wish). 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.

Code: Select all

        [b]Team Name:[/b]
        [b]Team Principal (Username):[/b]
        [b]Main Sponsor:[/b]
        [b]Engine Supplier:[/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 - Pepsi Rob
Nico Rosberg - £42million - Rawr F1-15
Daniel Ricciardo - £40million - Soaring Icarus
Sebastian Vettel - £35million - Stable
Fernando Alonso - £32million - Toyboata
Valtteri Bottas - £30million - DFR
Felipe Massa - £30million - PB Racing 2015
Jenson Button - £28million - SSA Systems
Daniil Kvyat - £25million - A-Grade

Pool 2:

Kimi Raikkonen - £20million - SSA Systems
Nico Hulkenberg - £18million - A-Grade
Sergio Perez - £18million - DFR
Romain Grosjean - £15million - Stable
Pastor Maldonado - £15million - PB Racing 2015

Felipe Nasr - £10million - Soaring Icarus
Carlos Sainz Jr - £5million - Rawr F1-15
Max Verstappen - £5million - Pepsi Rob
Will Stevens - SSA Juniors

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...

1st: Pseudo Mercedes - 565pts
2nd: DFR Renault - 446pts
3rd: Maniacal Mercedes - 433pts

Fantasy F1 Hall of Fame

2010: Laguz Prescott
2011: A Grade
2012: Aerox Renault
2013: Mother Mercedes
2014: Pseudo 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.

You need to fill out the form before i can accept your entry i'm afraid, as you'll need to register your car numbers and engine choice.

Also, while it's not ideal, the first come first served nature of sign ups has been the case ever since Fantasy F1 started in 2010, and to be honest, i see no other way of allocating race seats without causing a whole heap of trouble.

After seeing who's left, I'm actually surprised that I got a good driver pairing. That said, I wouldn't expect anything more than midtable, but given Kvyat is driving for Red Bull this season that can only be good, unless Red Bull slump down the field and become a midtable team again.

Hopefully more spaces can open up if Caterham manage to make the grid.

EDIT: Signup form changed to include new car numbers and the actual drivers.
