2018 Formula One Season

Post by hopeful traveller » 19 Mar 2018, 15:27

As Neil no longer has the time / cares about his excellent side competition he ran between 2012-14, I decided to borrow the idea this year, and put it on a Formula One-related fanbase. So if anyone here is still interested in the same thing, the questions are here: https://goo.gl/forms/mp7W7yA5uuHhKg6B3

Deadline is 00:59 GMT on Friday 23 March - i.e. one minute before FP1.
1 FNC Completion (PB: 17:18:18 with G Bryant, A Chilcraft, I MacNaughton)

11 All Lines (PB: 00:44:03)

Well, I'm afraid lines closed on Friday, but you should have been able to access it before then. Very odd.

Rob - 3
Rhys - 6

Current stat: 1

2 - Who will be the first person to retire from the Australian Grand Prix after the lights go out? (DNSs and DSQs will not count) *

Rob - Lance Stroll
Rhys - Brendon Hartley

Result: Sergey Sirotkin

3 - Who will be the last person to retire from the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix? (DSQs and classified finishers will not count) *

Rob - Fernando Alonso
Rhys - Stoffel Vandoorne
