Welcome to the 2018 Fantasy Formula 1 Season!
at 11:58 pm, Dec 2
Hamilton rounds out the season with one more win, taking Abu Dhabi without breaking much of a sweat. Mercedes cements themselves as the team of the turbo-hybrid era with yet another dominant season, and Hamilton inches his name that much closer to the label of greatest of all time. Of course, eras inevitably come to an end... how much time does Mercedes have at the top? Will 2019 be the inflection point? We'll just have to wait until Melbourne to find out!
Wrapping up an immense 2018 Fantasy F1 Championship, DP (delongedoug) completes the divebomb pass for the win in the last round, coming from 17th place in Round 15 to take the overall championship in Abu Dhabi. Cautious management of his driver pick count, and strategic use of the season's 3 drops, means that without even winning a single individual round, DP never-the-less is the only driver to score over a 50 points-per-round average, and wins the 2018 SECCS Fantasy Championship. For the win, DP will take home $240, congratulations!
In an unprecedented points tie, EAU ROUGE edges out Jodicious for 2nd overall based on picking just one more round winner in the tie break (9 to 8). EAU ROUGE ran an impressive season, staying in the top 8 the entire season while simultaneously peaking late in the season leading the pack for rounds 18-20, getting pipped only in the last round. For 2nd place overall, EAU ROUGE earns $144, nice work!
Taking the final money paying podium position is Jodicious in 3rd overall. Jodicious languished near the bottom of the standing for the middle half of the season, but gathered momentum late on the backs of long-saved big-name drivers. A perfect round in Japan was the jewel in a late drive to the top where the tie-breaker had to be invoked to land in 3rd place. Jodicious will earn $96 for, great job!
A huge thank you to all the participants this season. It was perhaps the craziest season in the 12 years we've been running the league, with a lot position changes and surprises in the standings. Was it was the 3 drops that helped scramble the results throughout the season, or perhaps it was just the nature of the races themselves this year? Either way, I'm looking forward to next season and hope many of you will return to play again in 2019. Plenty of driver/team shakeups appear to be afoot, so who know how next year will shake out!
Thanks again everyone!
