The Hamilton/Vettel rivalry heats up with a battle in Spain. Hamilton takes the round, closing the championship gap to leader Vettel.
Taking the top fantasy spot this round is Daniel, just one point in front of Monty. F1 Deede rounds out the podium. Both Daniel and F1 Deede move up 5 positions for their effort. Monty remains in 2nd overall behind leader Nick and ahead of Lisa who slots into 3rd place with the 58 points earned in Spain.
The spectacle that is Monaco is next! Button returns for just this single race, as Alonso will compete in the Indy 500 this year.

Could you not have a preliminary result automated after 6 hours, and have it re-run after 24?
at 7:35 pm, May 13
@Jody, 24 hours was simply the easiest to code.
I can probably shorten it up. The only issue is if there are changes I'd have to be aware of them... manually updating the results is easy, noticing something is off is not always obvious.

Alternatively, I'm on the opposite side of the planet than most of you guys and my time zone means I never ever miss a race. Happy to compile top 10 results-points for you after races when you're busy sperry
at 11:07 pm, May 12
@sperry - any chance you can adjust the automatic results posting so it happens sooner? Like 6 hours after the start of the race instead of, what, 24 hours? It just seems that if there are any issues and you have to change the results you could do so manually. And how likely is that anyway? Waiting a whole day just seems like forever!

BUT is now on the driver's roster for those of you thinking about picking him in Monaco!
at 10:27 am, May 8
Botas wins his first GP in front of many Finish fans in Russia, but Ferrari rounds out the podium in 2nd and 3rd as Hamilton slips to 4th this round.
With a drop now being applied to the results, the standings may appear a bit rearranged. Nabbing top points in the fantasy round, Nick scores 82, just ahead of Monty's 80 points in 2nd. With a points tie at the top of the championship, Monty takes the overall lead on pick quality. Lisa takes 3rd this round, and 4th overall.
We head back to a traditional venue next, racing in Catalunya, Spain! Can Ferrari switch back to the top step, or will Hamilton figure out his Russia issues and get back to his winning ways first?

Vettel responds to Hamilton's win in China by winning in Bahrain. Ferrari now leads the drivers' championship, while Mercedes leads the constructors'.
Daniel takes 84 points in Bahrain, leading the round. F1 Deede and Monty tie for 2nd with identical picks worth 80 points. In 4th, Nick scores enough to move into the overall lead. curley rounds out the top 5, moving up to 5th overall.
Off to Russia in a few weeks at the Sochi track in the Olympic village!
at 7:33 am, Apr 12
So Alonso missing the Monaco GP...will have to keep an eye out for who replaces him. Button is under contract as their reserve.
at 1:01 am, Apr 12
Round 2 shows us that Hamilton is still capable of his old "run away from the pack" game plan, winning in China handily.
With a second win, paramoric extends the fantasy championship lead pulling down 78 points, just ahead of Nick and Lisa. Lisa and indocti discant both leap up the standings by 7 places with their Round 2 results.
Bahrain is this weekend! Try to make your picks ASAP, just in case the server goes down again!
at 1:01 am, Apr 12
We're back! Had to restore the site from a backup, which is why everyone probably got a second email about Round 2 being complete.
Hope no one was too worried... I sure was.

Here's a fun thread with a lot of great videos to literally rev you up for the race:
at 12:59 pm, Mar 30
@delongedoug - well that simply means there's only one way to go from here: up!
at 9:27 am, Mar 30
Ugh top 5 qualifiers finished top 5 in the race. So much for using the "variable" first race of the season for a drop...
at 11:09 am, Mar 28
I posted a bug report to the guy that runs the feed. He's already changed VES->VER. We should be all set for the remainder of the season!
at 11:58 pm, Mar 27
@sperry - you could always code in an exception that converts VES to VER. ;^)
at 9:48 pm, Mar 27
Let me know if you want a hand putting together results. I watch all races live, so happy to help.
at 9:43 pm, Mar 27
And we're off! Round 1, 2017 is in the books, with a surprise win by Vettel and Ferrari over the expected dominance of Mercedes! The new cars look amazing, and there just may be a little parity at the front this season.
Grabbing the round win is paramoric with 82 points (just shy of the new 88 point perfect round), followed by 4 folks all scoring 80 points. There's a long way to go, with 19 more rounds and 2 drops yet to factor in. China is up next in 2 weeks!
at 9:18 pm, Mar 27
I checked our logs... the feed our site pulls results from still reports Verstappen as "VES", which is why we didn't automatically get the results... we refuse to update if a driver acronym is wrong, just to prevent my own manual entry typos.
Looks like it's manual updates until they fix their reporting!
at 9:54 am, Mar 27
@Jody, they're supposed to be! Should have run at 11:00 last night, 24 hours after the race. I'll have to look into it.
at 10:40 pm, Mar 26
Are results still automated?
at 11:39 pm, Mar 25
at 8:34 pm, Mar 25
herp derp I mispelled my username.
at 9:31 pm, Mar 24
Gimme a second, I'll go update the driver list!
at 7:43 pm, Mar 24
Sperry, just heard a rumour that Pascal W wont be racing this weekend. I think giovinazzi will take his spot. Might need to quickly change the driver list before qually.
edit: rumour confirmed hah
at 5:04 pm, Mar 23
back on the wagon
at 7:54 pm, Mar 22
No problem Joe! Glad you signed up for the season!
at 8:27 am, Mar 21
Thanks for getting this set up this year!!!! Should be another great season. This year I'm going to actually read the rules. LOL
at 12:59 pm, Mar 19
Ha! Probably for the best anyway.
at 3:36 am, Mar 19
Well, after figuring out this whole certs thing in apache/ubuntu, now it ONLY works in HTTPS. Take that HTTP redirect!
at 5:23 pm, Mar 17
BTW, the site doesn't appear to work on HTTPS.
at 11:40 pm, Mar 16
Nice to see things set for a new season. I'm looking forward to making one or two more steps up the standings.
at 11:11 pm, Mar 16
Sorry for the long delay setting up the 2017 season... I had a little "oops" upgrading the server OS. Seems like some of the older software we run doesn't like new versions of PHP out of the box!
But all that's fixed and the season should be all set, aside from some stale images. Please let me know if anyone sees anything wrong, like event dates/times or drivers.
at 3:12 am, Mar 16
Welcome back everyone! This year, we're mixing it up a little bit with the rules, just like the pros are with the new car regulations:
We'll be bumping up the per-season cap of 7 picks per-driver to 9.
However, we're also going to expand the number of picks per-round to 6!
So, that's one more opportunity each race to make points by picking 6 drivers for each race, and a few more total available picks on tap by allowing each driver to be picked up to 9 times this year. Two drops remain for this season, so keep that in mind when it comes to driver saving strategy.
For more info on the rules, see the
Let's hope the new rules and the faster cars this season will be great fun. Good luck!
