5AF Fantasy F1 2020

Postby Shyster » Tue Mar 03, 2020 5:35 pm

Welcome to the fourth-annual 5AF Fantasy F1 league.

• The competition is open to all posters. Welcome aboard!

• You each have $40 million to spend on your team.

• You may select as many drivers as your budget allows. There is no advantage gained from not spending your entire budget.

• Teams do not have to be unique.

• You are selecting by driver. If a driver switches teams, your points earned will follow that driver to the new team. If a driver is replaced, you will no longer earn points for that driver.

• Each player must choose two Grand Prix weekends. This set must be unique if you have the same driver lineup as someone else. These two weekends will earn double points in the event there is a tie at the end of the season. In the event the inclusion of double points still results in a tie, the tiebreaker will follow the same pattern as the F1 drivers’ championship tiebreaker, which is the number of first-place finishes earned by all your drivers, then the number of second-place finishes, and so on.

• The points earned by your selected drivers are the same as the points earned by the F1 drivers’ championship (1st place - 25 points; 2nd -18; 3rd - 15; 4th -12; 5th - 10; 6th - 8; 7th - 6; 8th - 4; 9th - 2; 10th - 1).

VER, ALB, SAI

Monaco, Mexico

I think the values put too much faith in Ferrari's potential. They're already talking about giving up and focusing on the 2021 regs. Between that and Albon increasing point share over Gasly in the second half last year, I think RBR is undervalued.
I also think that while Stroll Family Motorsports has made gains, I'm still not expecting to them be best of the rest. Stroll got outscored nearly 3:1, it won't get better when they move a couple spots forward and the point spread between positions is larger. Does Perez score more than Sainz? Possibly, but I can't see Stroll in 8th the driver's championship.
I also think somebody was high when they thought George Russell would score more than Kimi and as much as Ocon.

Yeah, I know. I'm just not feeling it this year so I haven't really put a lot of thought into it. Might just duplicate the team I chose for my other league.

I wanted to build a team around Albon but he was too expensive.

All right everyone, I have no idea if or how many of the races might actually take place, but it looks like we're set. Best of luck to everyone.

I think the most recent version I have is '17. Wouldn't be opposed to picking it up now, though. What platform is everyone on? I'm PS4.

I think I misunderstood, anyway. I was thinking you meant we could do like a 5AF network league and race each other.

Sounds fun, tho:
The F1® 2019 Legends Edition celebrates the greatest rivalry in F1® history. Players get to drive as Ayrton Senna in his 1990 McLaren MP4/5B and Alain Prost in the Ferrari F1-90, and face off over 8 race challenges, as well as receiving exclusive Senna and Prost themed multiplayer car liveries.

Nah I meant like,start a season as a driver no one picked then just sim through with transfers off, with points doled out as if the results were the real thing.
