Woo, what a great season. Congrats to DFR for their first ever championship. I had a lot of fun putting liveries together and pretending to be a middle aged Japanese woman. I probably won't ever post on SONM again cause I was only really here for this and I'm moving to Japan in a few weeks, so thank you DJ for giving me something to enjoy over the last few months.

If someone decides to start a new season, someone give me a prod. At least one of you knows where to find me.

Okay, so i guess that is it, before the season finishes however, i would like to take a moment to thank everyone who has participated in Fantasy F1 since i took over the franchise, and of course, the game's original founder, Ape.

Back when Ape first created Fantasy F1, the then ONM Forum was a very different place, and i myself was at that time, running the old ONM F1 Game in Forum Games which simulated races using F1: Championship Edition on the PS3 (that game ended when Codemasters took over the F1 game franchise and ditched the F1 TV option that Studio Liverpool always used).

Anyways, i thought that creating Fantasy F1 was a great idea and so signed up for the very first season with a white/yellow car called a Forti Renault. I then expanded to two teams that season when HRT joined the 2010 F1 season late in the day and the Fantasy series needed a new outfit (which is one reason why i was happy to allow the SSA team more recently to run a junior squad).

My team ultimately finished 2nd (i think) in 2010 thanks to Fernando Alonso, and so i continued to play as it was always fun to see how my team did over each race weekend (something i hope you guys have also felt during my tenure as host), and so was more than happy to step up when the game was facing an uncertain future.

Now however, i am to formally step down as the host of Fantasy F1, but i will return as a team owner should anyone wish to take over the hosting duties for 2017 (much like Ape did when he stood down).

Once again, thank you for playing, it's been fun, and i shall leave you with a little something that sums up this game over the years...

Cheers for hosting DJ. I'm probably going to call it a day in Fantasy F1 too if we find a new host, not as into F1 as I was a few years ago although I still try and watch the races here and there, it's just not with the same level of interest that I once had.

Yeah thanks for hosting it all D.J, I never took part when Ape hosted it. Guess we could always see before the start of next season if the interest is there to do another season and who might like to host it.

Kind of disappointed in my result, was hoping Renault and McLaren would both develop their car a little more than they did potentially allowing me to be a regular top 10 by the end (in McLaren anyway, kind of knew Renault weren't overly keen on developing their car much, which turned out to be next to nothing). Oh well that's how it goes.

I might be up for hosting next year IF there's enough people playing, which I doubt. If there are 10 players ready to go at the beginning of February I'll host it, I'll probably make some sort of interest thread in the new year.

Thanks for hosting D.J, it's been done well over the four seasons I've competed in. I hope they'll be enough players but we'll see.

Long live plus six and Raikonnen's still fired. It was the best season for us, however. Glad to see the "two drivers that score points" strat working for once.
