Since Felipe Massa is in a critical condition and probably wont race for the rest of the season we will change the teams with Massa. You can pick another driver going by the value of Massa. New entries need to be in before the European GP otherwise you will have him for the rest of the season therefore losing points.
Since Lewis Hamilton and Mclaren have been disqualified from the Austrailia points i am afraid to say that i will have to deduct points from those with Hamliton or Mclaren. I will also have to award points to Jarno Trulli who has now regained 3rd Place and subsequently Toyota will also recieve extra points. Revised Table will be posted shortly.
To make you all aware that there are currently Legal issues surrounding the Brawn GP, Williams and Toyota teams about their rear diffuser. (A piece of metal at the rear of the car to produce more downforce.) The split level diffuser was given the all clear before the start of the season but Red Bull, Ferrari and Renault have the case in appeal. The result will be on the 14th April on whether or not they can keep this part. According to the rules of F1, points can be deducted since the season has already begun. Since this is the case i will have to adopt the same principle and amend the points of these three teams. This is only if the appeal wins and the diffusers have to be changed. If the appeal fails no points will be deducted.
To enter this competition, email with: Your choice of 2 drivers, Your choice of constructor team, Your team name (be creative it will what you will be known as for the rest of the championship), Your answer to the tiebreaker question and obviously who you are
Rule 1: Each Team buys Two Drivers and a Constructor Team.
Rule 2: There is a limit of £ 250,000,000 in total for the constructor and drivers.It is up to each team who they buy but the £250,000,000 limit can not be exceeded.
Rule 3: In the event of a draw at the end of the season a tiebreaker will be used. On the entry form you are asked to guess the total sum of laps completed in the season by the drivers. We are not looking for the personal total of each driver but the collective total of all the drivers. There are 17 Grand Prix this season and 20 Drivers.
Rule 4: If your driver or constructor has to retire from the formula one championship then you are allowed to select another driver or constructor of similar value as long as your total of £250,000,000 for the two drivers and constructor has not been exceeded. The point total of that driver or constructor will only be taken from the time of change and will be added on to the previous total of your original selection.
