Righto, lights out on the 2021 season this weekend so it's high time I got off my ass and started the thread I promised to avoid clogging the main F1 thread

F1.com is running a fantasy season with teams and leagues and whatnot which all are welcome to join if you want. It's free and I think there are some actual prizes from the F1 people if you do really super well. I will not be giving prizes

For anyone not already signed up, you register and create teams at https://fantasy.formula1.com ;

We have a TFB league set up. Go here, hit https://fantasy.formula1.com/leagues hit "Join with a code"  (top right corner on desktop, not sure on mobile) and search for cba87c7b21

EDIT:
Latest table after 2nd Austria - 5 July 2021

    Points go as follows. It's quite bloody complicated, but basically rewards positions and race and quali as well as  general consistency.  There's also chunky bonus stuff like gaining positions and beating your teammate, as well as losing places and DNFs.

    Apparently there are also prizes - top scorer in the world gets Paddock Club passes for a race. But not Abu Dhabi, even though it's on my doorstep

    Looking forward to it, cheers for the setup Mike

    Nice one. “Castle Racing” are set up and ready to go go go. 

    Not planning on changing things around during the season, just going with my initial lineup and seeing what happens.

    I may switch it up once I feel like I understand the rules better, but certainly not planning on anything major. I’m basically all in with McLaren...

  • I'm generally hopeless at Fantasy F1/Football/Tiddlywinks etc, always do embarrassingly badly, but I'm in there anywhere.

    Yeah I originally had Alpine as my dark horses, and had them and Ocon. Just swapped them around now for McLaren and Norris.

    Just joined - gone with Mclaren to but with Ricciardo instead of Norris. I did consider adding Norris too but didn't want to put all my eggs in one basket.

    well it's neither accepting my (saved) login or cooperating with the password reset process and I don't care THAT much about it so... enjoy!

    Same thing happened to my eldest lad (we have a family league running) that was via his tablet. Tried it via my work laptop and he managed to get back in.

    33 points after Bahrain quali. My B-team got 39. I don't know if that's good or bad.

    Bah! 

    I did try and focus on drivers who tend to move forward during races, so I still have high hopes...

  • Bah, just logged into my account to have a check and got excited when I saw I was ranked #1 in the league!

    Then realised the league's don't get updated til after the weekend..   :p 

    I have 48 points after qualy. My 'turbo driver' for the week was Sergio Perez, so he's letting the team down so far!

    Ok, so I’m definitely not doing well!

    Edit - checked again and I’m on 54. So entirely possible I’m ok at fantasy F1 but really bad at reading numbers...

    49 points, FFS.  That’ll teach me for having misplaced trust in Perez and Vettel, the overrated twats.

    I had Perez - I’m thinking he’ll gain plenty for going forward today. 

    I have Vettel in my B team. Potentially lots of points to gain for moving up but also too close to Mazepin at the back so will probably get driven into early on....

    Can someone who CAN log in tell me how many points I've got?

    I can't see league scores yet - all are showing zero. I assume they'll go visible after the race including the full results - I'll post a full leaderboard update once it's online
