Mumsnet Fantasy F1 is GO GO GO!

Less than a month to go until the lights go out at Melbourne!

I've set up a fantasy F1 team on this site. It's free to play and I've set up a Mumsnet F1 league so we can play against each other. The league is called Mumsnet F1 and there is a password, so if you want to join then just PM me and I'll send it to you.

There are two different strategies in the game- you can change your mind about which one you want to use up until the start of the season.

I'm still tinkering around with the game at the moment so haven't figured it all out yet. The other site I looked at had a £10 joining fee so I thought people would prefer this one.

I'm going to start putting my team together now, Maldonado looks like a bargain at only 10.5 million wink

If anyone wants to suggest a different website then that's fine, there are so many around that I only clicked on the first couple.

Hmm, looks interesting... I'll mark my place here now and come back to this later. Thanks!

Ok, place marked!

I've picked 4 drivers but I'll probably change my mind several thousand times before the season starts.

Signed up! The somewhat lamely named Team Frettchen is now in the process of picking its drivers.

I'm going to go for the 2nd strategy - picking my drivers up front without the possibility of changing as the season progresses.

Marking my place to do when I have a bit more time.

Thanks EauRouge.

Thanks EauRouge - excellent password wink

I wasn't sure how you would sign up to a league set up by someone else. Apparently the league name isn't enough and you also need the number. It's 451. Sorry, I cannot remember who I've messaged and who I haven't. Someone might have had the same message from me 3 times. Sorry grin

Just registered and waiting for my activation e-mail grin

RegainingUnconsciousness Mon 24-Feb-14 18:21:07

I'm all signed up!

RestingActress Mon 24-Feb-14 20:10:29

My first e-mail didn't come through so I had to register with a different e-mail address, but I'm all signed up now - Team Brixworth's Best - Brixworth being just down the road from me, living in F1 County.

One week to go! Anyone else want to join?

Shall I be really cheeky and post this in chat? I don't think many people know about the sports forum.

Frettchen Mon 10-Mar-14 16:07:22

I say go for it - entice a few more people in!

I've had a look at re-jigging my team, but my current foursome used up my budget perfectly, so I might just have to stick with them. Seems a waste to have change left over at the end on a fixed-team strategy!

Just giving this a bump for this weekend - (have NC)

RegainingUnconsciousness Sat 15-Mar-14 21:11:19

Watched qualifying earlier - it's more fun with a vested interest!

Shame Kimi mashed his car.

How did you all do? I can't really work it out....

I had Raikkonen, Rosberg and Alonso and appear to have gone up 2m in value

EauRouge Sun 16-Mar-14 21:01:31

I have Alonso, Rosberg, Hulkenberg and Button. If you click on the league then it tells you how many points you have. I'm winning <does dance> grin

RegainingUnconsciousness Sun 16-Mar-14 23:42:23

Yes! I'm second! Thanks Nico, and what on earth were you doing Kamui? 5 points? I could have got 5 points!

Frettchen Mon 17-Mar-14 00:16:59

That... was not a good start...

Damn you, Red Bull, and your dodgy fuel flow thingy-whatsit!
