Fantasy F1 League 2016
342 Active Teams Competing
Fantasy F1 2016 is now ready for the new season. If you had a team last year you will find it has been reset ready to choose your new driver and constructor line-up. If you haven't played before then you can register now for free. As usual you will be allowed to do as many transfers as you like with no penalty until the start of qualifying for the first race in Australia.
Proposed Rule Changes
There have now been enough votes in the polls regards the new rules and the voting for the current polls means each one of the changes could be implemented. I am concerned about making a load of rule changes in a short space of time however, so there is one final poll, see to the left. Depending on the results of this final poll I will announce the rule changes in the next week or two so please vote.
I will list the proposed rul changes below, in order of popularity:
Bonus points for the driver who sets fastest lap for a race.
83% were in favour of this option so it is most likely to be introduced.
Overtaking Bonus for all Drivers
77% were in favour of this option.
Bonus points for a driver who outqualifies their team mate
73% of voters wanted this new option.
Constructors points should be scored by both drivers
72% of voters favoured this option.
Fantasy F1 League 2016 is a free, Fantasy F1 game now in our fifth season and based on the Formula 1 World Championship - you can register or login if you played before and pick your team for the coming season. Fantasy F1 2015 will allow you to create or join a public or private league for free, as well as picking your drivers, aerodynamic, chassis and engines. Fantasy F1 League can be played in your browser, no need for downloads.
I have given the starting prices for next season much harder consideration for 2016 as 2015 didn't go quite as I planned, it became too easy to simply have the top drivers and the top components too early in the season. Prices will also change depending on performance so the top drivers etc will become quite pricey meaning it will be hard to have the best of everything.
Fantasy F1 League operates a handicap system for late starters - if you miss a race then you gain an additional £3M for your team's budget, for each race missed. So if you don't register until after the Malaysian GP for example, you'd get an extra £6M for your team to spend. This means you can buy a stronger team than those already playing and gives you a chance of catching up. In any case everyone has a chance of winning trophies at every race so you can still get some glory that way, even if you are a late starter or have a bad few races.
The prediction game is now ready for beta testing so if you would like to sign up please visit the Podium Picks website. You can register and make predictions for the podium at the US Grand Prix.
