***  Important  ***

Top | Getting Started | Prizes | Choose Team | About FGP Teams | Driver & Car Prices

Note: Transfers 3 has a new rule since last year! Read below carefully!

  • The Race Team can only have ONE element from each real F1 team where marked *. This rule applies to the start of the season up to and including Race 17. From Race 18 onwards, you may include up to TWO elements from teams marked * in your FGP Team. (Note: Very important when selecting Transfers 2 & 3)
  • Transfers 1 does not allow you to have all elements due to their prices
  • All other F1 Teams, you may select one, two or all three elements at any time for your FGP Race Team.
  • Drivers may not be placed in their real F1 Car at any time throughout the season.
  • Your Transfer Teams may contain several elements from a real F1 team, however When transfers are made, the Race Team must adhere to the rules above.
  • You may only name a Constructor or Driver once
  • When selecting a Driver, you are actually selecting that teams Driver no.1 or no.2 as indicated in the table below (This is only relevant should drivers transfer between F1 teams during the season - See Driver Changes and Replacements opposite)
  • Unique Teams: At the start of the season all Teams must be unique. This will be based on the Race Team plus the highest priced elements in T2 and T3. Drivers that are placed in opposite cars (in Race Team) to another team will be considered unique.
  • Identical teams: Should any teams be identical the FGP Manager will attempt to resolve by switching the named Race Team cars and drivers around as above for one of the teams. If this does not resolve the problem, the player that entered their team first will keep their team, others will be contacted to supply a second choice. (The Fantasy Grand Prix Manager's decision is final).
  • Each team should be given a ‘Team Name’ (Strictly No Offensive Names)
  • A complete list of all teams (‘The Starting Grid’) will be published before the first race. See 'Starting Grid and Statistics' page

Point Scoring / Other Rules

Scoring System | Driver Changes etc | Transfers
Cancelled Races | Results | Management

This column details all the points and other in-season rules.


Note: Points are scored by your Race Team (3 Drivers / 3 Constructors)

Qualifying
Points will be awarded for Qualifying as follows:

Pos: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
Points: 40 30 25 22 20 19 18 17 16 15 13 11
   
Pos: 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20    
Points: 10 9 8 6 5 4 2 1    

These points are scored by all drivers, and the best placed car of each Constructor.

  • The qualifying position will be the position that Drivers/Cars actually qualified at (on the Saturday), not their final Grid position.
  • If a Driver/Constructor is disqualified from qualifying but still races, they will score zero Qualifying points but still start at their Saturday position (as they will  most likely start the race at the back or the from the pits they will not receive race improvement points until passing their original qualified position.
  • Should the disqualified driver/constructor not race, that space on the FGP Grid will not be filled (i.e. Drivers behind do not move forward)

Race Points (End of Race)
Points are awarded to Drivers and Cars at the end of the race depending on what position they finish in. Both cars of a Constructor will score points for their respective positions. If a Driver or Car does not finish the race, they do not receive these points.

Pos: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
Drivers: 100 85 75 70 65 60 55 50 45 40 35 30
Cars: 70 60 50 45 40 35 32 30 28 26 24 22
   
Pos: 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20    
Drivers: 25 20 17 12 10 8 5 3    
Cars: 20 16 14 10 8 6 4 2    

Improvement Points

  • Drivers will get 5 points per place made up in the race - Up to a maximum of 50 points. Therefore if a driver starts from 10th and finishes 4th he will receive 30 improvement.
  • The best finishing car of a Constructor will score 5 points per place made up against that Constructor’s best start position - Up to a maximum of 50 points.
    • For example: if a constructor qualified 5th and 10th on the grid and those cars finished in 3rd and 6th then the best finishing car would score 10 points. (i.e. The highest starter’s position is deducted from the highest finisher’s position and (if the result is positive) multiplied by 5 to a maximum of 50)

Fastest Lap Points
The Driver and the Constructor that achieves the Fastest Lap of the race are each awarded 20 points.

Car and Driver Bonus Points
If one or your teams Driver and Car combinations finishes then 10 points will be scored. If two Driver/Car combinations finish, 20 points will be scored. If all three Driver/Car combinations finish then 35 points will be scored.
Note: Both cars of the F1 Team must finish to score the bonus points. i.e. If you have Hamilton in a Renault and only one Renault car finishes then no points for that combination will be scored.

Driver Changes, Replacements, etc

Top | Scoring System | Driver Changes etc | Transfers
Cancelled Races | Results | Management

  • A Driver/Car that does not finish within the last few laps will often be classified within the official FIA result. Under such circumstances the finish position in FGP will equal that of the FIA Classified Result.
  • The FGP result will be based upon that of the race, together with any amendments that may be imposed up to Thursday Midnight before the next race (Last Race: Midnight after the race).
  • Appeals and any F1 sanctions, point penalties etc, after the above time/date will have no effect on FGP (Subject to below).
  • If a driver is replaced, injured or does not race for any other reason (including a ban imposed by the FIA), then any FGP team that has that driver will automatically get his replacement (Including within Transfer Teams).
  • The replaced driver, if desired and if within the transfer period, may be transferred out (subject to transfer rules).
  • If a Constructor is banned then no points will be scored for that constructor in FGP teams. Obviously the drivers of that constructor will also be affected. FGP players may, if desired and within the transfer period, transfer cars and drivers (subject to transfer rules).
  • In the unlikely circumstance that a Constructor (or Driver) is banned but continues to race, the FGP will not be affected by such a ban and Constructors (and Drivers) will still score all FGP points.
  • If a real team does not compete in any number of races for any reason other than a ban, or withdraws from Formula One then the FGP teams that include that team will not get replacements. However, under such circumstances you may transfer the cars and drivers if the transfer window is open. If not open you must wait.
  •  If a driver transfers mid-season to another F1 team you will get his replacement. This rule also covers when two (or more) drivers switch between teams. This includes within your transfer sections.
    • Example: If you have Hamilton (at Mercedes) and he switches with Norris (at McLaren), you now get Norris at Mercedes as he has filled the Mercedes driver 1 slot.
    • For clarity: You picked 'Driver Slot 1, or Driver Slot 2 or a team; therefore you have the driver who occupies that slot at any given time)
