Re: The 2012 Formula 1 World Championship

I have found a suitable F1 Fantasy game. Not the same place as last year. They changed it to just selecting the top 3 drivers, fastest lap and fastes pitstop. No constuctors, engine.

Anyhoo, I have PapaG and Saint7uk so far. Any more to make it interesting? I'm looking at Porsche and Acen.


I'll need you to PM me your e-mail so that I can add you to the league.

Re: The 2012 Formula 1 World Championship

Where's everyone watching the GP this weekend? Sucks big time that the BBC have done this to us :-(

I have no intention of taking out a Sky subscription just for F1.

Guess I might just have to live with the highlights.

I watched one race on RTL last year and the adverts drove me crazy so don't think that's an option for me, plus is was not in HD.

Anyone interested in another Fantasy F1 league, PM me and I'll set it up once it goes live
How does it work? What do you do?

(I tried googling "Fantasy F*" (there might be one for F2 as well, you know) and while the results were helpful, I'm not sure mimi would want me checkingthose pages once a fortnight)

I was going to do that but it's a tenner to start a team let alone a mini league if they do them.


Here is the up to date info on joining the F1 league.

Go to www.profantasyf1.com, register and set up a team.

Then click "minileague" from the tab at the top.

Then select "join Mini League" and enter "kevin c's F1 league". That will add you to the league

You have a budget and can pick 4 drivers, 1 Engine supplier, 2 Constuctors and a bonus track where all points are doubled.

Points are given for various things, winning, places gained, qualy etc. Details are on the site.

Re: The 2012 Formula 1 World Championship

I basically skinted myself on the drivers as there are a few I just MUST have. That left me with a few pence for the rest.

I know what you mean about RTL (and basically every other channel I've found) and ads. I'm going to try listening to Radio 5 live for the commentary off my tablet, and then channel surf between French/German/Italian stations alternating when ads come on.

I used to do this in a past country where BBC TV was not receivable - the only problem then was that the radio broadcast was on a different time delay to the TV - about 7 or 8 seconds - so you would here about things after seeing them which makes the commentators seem a bit slow!

I have the same problem here. I can watch the BBC and or Sky here but as I have to hide my Id, it slows down the connection somewhat and makes it unwatchable.
I can then watch it on the US channel "Speed" but that has inferior commentary and BLOODY adverts!!
I have watched the US channel, with the BBC commentary running beside it. Not sure what I am going to to now. Download some that are on at an un-Godly time.

Anyway, I am looking forward to watching the free practice, let alone the race.
