Just joined up with my Silverstone Strugglers. Ricciardo not finishing was a bit of a blow

Picked sainz and ricciardo, doh!

Made up for slightly by picking bottas (not as my star driver though) so 2/3rds of the way down isn’t too bad!

Same, but I had Lewis as my star so I'm near the bottom

Lewis can’t be your star, has to be a driver under 17m

Can’t seem to get the site to load but not expecting greatness tbh

Only 1 race in, don't fret!

It'll be 3 or so races before i work out the scoring system, until then it's all guesswork anyway. Picking all the b team drivers based on value looked great til i saw 3 points per race for beating your teammate. No wonder the value looked good, those 3 points are priced in!

I remember one i did years ago which really rewarded qualifying badly and finishing ok. Perez, hulk, kimi were massively good in thst version. Perez kept doing 1 stop races in the sauber, the other 2 never binned it and always came in 4 th or 5 th having not got past Q2.

From a sample of 1 race, this one seems to be that the team and turbo driver are the keys to the most points. If the rest is defined by overtakes, and totally penalised by DNF's and besting your teammate then i think russell in the williams might be a good shout. Currently have turbo on gasly but teammate thing says that costs me 6 points a race - might have to look again at the "pick the best one under 19mil" guess and revise that! All of a sudden kimi looks enticing...

Bugger, I set up 3 teams, the one I entered to this league scored 116 points, one of the others got 166 and I'd have been in the lead.

I don't like the fact you can see other peoples teams although i'm sure it will come in useful when i decide to use my wildcard hehe.

I think the big question is, does anybody not have Kimi as their turbo driver?

Of course! I currently have Gasly. Without knowing the rules before the season starts, you'd have to assume a red bull driver will outscore a Sauber driver over the season...

I've done the same, is there any way to put my 'A' team into the pistonheads league?

Yes, you can leave the league then rejoin with the other team.

Can't think of a single change I really want to make, still happy with the team selection.

Going to leave well alone for a few races, I think.

I didn't know it explained how the points were worked out. I just picked drivers I thought would have less dnfs and hoped that sauber had a real good car this year with their slightly different design ethos.

Yes, RIC is not performing. Not a very good race for me. MAG had a howler.

I've lucked in so far, I'm sure it'll come crumbling down soon! Feeling brave so having a bit of a swap about!

It looked like a fellow pistonheader was top of the UK League for a while!
