Race #4 -- Spain

Postby Waldorf » Tue May 15, 2007 9:01 pm

Kimi's untimely exit from the Spanish GP shook things up a bit. Here is the new top 11:

188 - saakey
186 - nickj
185 - he-man
185 - marclee75
184 - scarlet_macaw
184 - smitty
184 - webbaar
183 - back-lit
183 - waldorf
182 - canadave
182 - jeremy813

The standings are very close at the moment. A total of 77 people have averaged at least 40 points per race so far, which is a crazy pace.

Hmmm, never done this well. Better check me for substance abuse.

Last 2 races I have gone to put my bids in just before friday practise had started (like maybe 2 hrs)only to find it say already expired. So I sent my bids by PM to Farz but they're still in my outbox :( meaning he hasn't seen them yet.

Why do a few people do this so often? The deadline for each race is shown on the picks page, and there is a whole page with deadlines for every race, which you can see in your own time zone. The deadline is not always the start of practice -- when Farzad sets the deadlines, he is a bit conservative to make sure that differences in Daylight Savings time never result in a deadline after practice has started.

Maybe make your picks for China now, instead of waiting until the deadline has passed and complaining to Farzad. If something important happens just before free practice to make you want to change your picks, then you can do so. But why set yourself up for a zero?

A) I got used to doing my picks when I got the reminder email - which I haven't received for the last 2 races.
B) I have real life deadlines that tend to occupy my mind more than deadlines for games (I'm not Jeremy :twisted: )

I didn't complain to Farzad I merely submitted my picks. The reason for this post was that he hasn't replied to (or even read) my messages to him.
Can't say I realised the deadline wasn't the start of practise - well I know now I guess.

The 2007 GridBids finale

Postby Waldorf » Fri Oct 19, 2007 8:13 am

http://www.gridbids.com/vennpicks.php?player1=31&player2=714&player3=562&race=17

Going into the last race, todzilla220 has a good lead (for a dry race), with fidel 10 points down and tisoy & bicyclejoe 17 points back.

Image

-- fidel has chosen conservatively, and will need Rosberg to outscore (Webber + Fisichella) by 10 points if he is to catch todzilla.

-- tisoy has gone for broke, with (Kimi + Rosberg + Kubica + Vettel) versus todzilla's (Alonso + Hamilton + Webber + Trulli + Ralf), which is unlikely to net him 17 points unless the two McLarens take each other out.

-- bicyclejoe needs (Heidfeld + Kubica) to outscore Massa by 17, which is also unlikely.
