F1 Game 2014 - Australia

Time marches on, and the new season is almost upon us, complete with low-revving turbo engines, ugly/hilarious noses and all. Therefore it's time to start the game, so that nobody does anything stupid like forgetting to post their guess when leading before the last race ...

So what you need to do is guess the top ten finishers, the pole and fastest lappers, and answer the bonus question: how many cars will retire due to engine failure?

Deadline: Friday 14 March 2359 GMT

Are you doing a stupid double points system for the end of the season too?

well they do want F1 to relate to road cars, low revving turbo and ugly front is 99% of cars these days isn't it?!

Hhmmmm - might enter this again this year. Looks like an interesting season is ahead!

However, round about mid-August time, I MAY have to post once for the remaining races in the season....

Big cheer when SebVet failed to make Q3. Not really the idea but these are mainly Australians.  Usual suspects were fast: Mercs, Red Bull, Ferrari and even McLaren. The rain and Kimi's spin threw a curve ball but Q1 showed what form might be like.

The cars sound absolutely shit on TV. I'll wait for Austria to see what they're like trackside.

I thought I would follow my process from last year and skip the first race
