So it would seem that my Fantasy Racers effort is following that of Jenson Button’s championship dream at the moment; right down the swanny. I decided to make more of an effort this time and shifted out a lot of driver after Valencia and each of my teams managed to increase their budgets by keeping drivers on the up, but getting rid of drivers on the down. After buying them back at a cheaper rate, I felt quite smug with myself heading into the Belgian Grand Prix. Unfortunately, both Button and Hamilton retired, Webber failed to score, Fisichella got the upper hand on Sutil, Barrichello was pretty much no where and only Kimi Raikkonen really saved the day.

BlogF1 Racing and Inner Pickle Racing had a disastrous weekend, collecting 299 and 370 points respectively. Hoenstly, it couldn’t have any worse even if I had tried. Oh wait, I did try. Hmmph! Conversely though, didn’t Team Finitalia do well, picking up a mighty fine haul of points (526). Much thanks to Kimi Raikkonen, Giancarlo Fisichella and Heikki Kovalainen all scoring, and Jarno Trulli did well in qualifying, although retired from the race.
Interestingly, it was the team made up of the cheaper drivers that did the best, Team Blogger’s Dog collecting 566 points, Giancarlo Fisichella, Robert Kubica and Nick Heidfeld being the big scorers there. It isn’t much of a consolation prize though, as BF1R slip down to 141st in the Sidepodcast League, and rest in 963rd overall.
