2012 FORZAMINARDI.COM CHALLENGE - ROUND 05 - Monaco (24 - 27 MAY 2012)

2012 FORZAMINARDI.COM CHALLENGE - ROUND 05 - Monaco (24 - 27 MAY 2012)


1.0 Predict the following exactly and gain points each round:
a. Pole getter - 2 points (pole getter is defined as the one who is on pole
when the race is started)
b. Winner of GP - 4 points
c. Second in GP - 3 points
d. Third in GP - 2 points
e. Fourth in GP - 1 point
f. 1st car out after the race has started under the green lights whether
through DNF or DNS (through stalling for eg.) or through DQ (by black flag
for eg.) - 1 point (point given even if DQ is appealed)
g. Name the ex-Minardi driver who finishes in the highest
position in the race amongst all ex-minardi drivers - 2 points

All predictions above must be EXACTLY correct. Should any driver pull out
before the race weekend, his replacement is not automatically substituted in
the bets...the bettors MUST exercise the edit right as provided in clause 6
two days before race day (e.g. if race day is on Sunday, final edit right is
day-stamp of post Friday).

2.0 Prize for the winner with most points at end of season:
a. the glory of being the season's Forzaminardi.com champion...plus whatever additional prize R-J
or the others may want to throw in. :-)

3.0 The organisers are manlio27 and FactyCrab.

4.0 The qualifying and race results FIRST published by formula1.com will be
used to judge the bets placed unless the referees by a majority decision decide to use the amended results following any steward decisions made post race. No appeal to organisers' decision which is

5.0 If the organisers cannot make a decision, they will consult R-J and/or
Neil_s and/or Minardi4eva who shall act as referees.

6.0. All bets must be submitted in the above 1.0 a to g order and must be
submitted before the first quali session starts. Any bets submitted after the
first quali starts will be invalid. All bets MUST be in by before the first
quali but no editing of any bets placed can be done after the end of friday
practices (or in the case of Monaco after Thursday's practices). This is
because when a post is edited, there is no time stated when such edits have
been done, it just says which date the edit was done.

7.0 DQ means disqualification during the race. so any disqualification
resulting from and/or with not starting the race does not fall under this description of

8.0 Any additional rules can be added to aid clarity but not to change the
bets format and the points as and when deemed neccessary.

9.0 The referees of this 2012 ForzaMinardi Challenge are Lease, manlio27,
Forzaminardi, PistonBroke and Telstar (if Lease, R-J, Piston and Telstar agree). A majority decision
from these 5 is required to settle any dispute. If the dispute concerns the
referee's bet, then the other 4 referees must adjudicate and arrive at a majority

    Proposal: guys, shall we consider Maldonado as ex-Minardi as well? So we have 3 instead of 2 drivers to choose from! Let's see if we can reach a majority vote on this, it's just 6 or 7 of us participating the competition!!
  • Well, many of us here from Anglo Saxon heritage don't you know?..................very conservative...............not the done thing what?...................will need to put this to a steering committee.............probably set up a number of sub committees...........put it to a focus group.............toss it around for while...........maybe a poll.............hmmm................should get an answer as early as next year.........year after for certain.

    Well Manlio, the Webber thing is almost a free kick, and when it isn't, the only other choice is Fred, so I'll agree.

  • Seems as though I have given another free pass to everyone this weekend, now for this years unpredictability to save me again. As for adding Maldonado to the ex-Minardi portion I am fine with that.

  • Wow, where did I pull that one from............

    Next race will be a lottery. Probably 10 guys could win it. Maybe its Kimi's turn next?
