Not such a great race in terms of the Fantasy Racers game, the highest scoring team of mine only managing 618 points from Germany (97 less than Silverstone). The lack of success from the Brawn camp slightly dented the efforts and it is perhaps time to switch allegiance to the better performing Red Bull drivers. Having said that, BlogF1 Racing did still move up in the overall standings, but clearly thee is still a long way to go before the season draws to a close in November.
|Blogger’s Dog Racing||536||1990th||2355th|
|Inner Pickle Racing||565||1631st||1516th|
From the table we can see the damage the lack of Red Bull drivers has had on the teams, although Nico Rosberg was a bit of a life saver, collecting 140 points for his storming drive to P4. BF1R were still the highest scoring team from the five, and Inner Pickle Racing also continue to do well, finishing just behind
In order to get Mark Webber into the BF1R team though would mean sacrificing two lesser drivers – the Australian’s price has rocketed recently – and as it stands at the moment, Webber has 1231 points since Australia, whereas Nico Rosberg and Adrian Sutil have a combined total of 1511. So either I’m not getting something, or I am better off keeping the German duo.
Team Finitalia continue to disappoint, managing a paltry 305 points with the only positive thing being that this was one of Heikki Kovalainen’s best races of the year, scoring 100 points and only bettering that in China with 126. The tail-end team, Blogger’s Dog Racing did quite well, collecting 536 points and improving in the overall rankings ever so slightly.
In the Sidepodcast league, BF1R sits in 141st (up 2 places), while in the overall league they are 957th. Sidepodcast Racers are still doing well in 85th while my second most successful team, IPR, are 207th. At the last race, Kathi challenged BF1R with her second team, Schokoladenkuchen. After Silverstone, Chocolate Cake were 21 places ahead, and as of now, they are still 21 places ahead. I know I forgot to update my teams prior to the German Grand Prix, and I suspect Kathi did too.

I finally beat you once, Ollie!
My stock market team collected 647 points. But what was surprising is that they did it with only three drivers, and had a leftover budget of 12.70 . That’s my highest score yet and the team was 760th for the race.
Nice one, a decent haul of points.
*Must do better in Hungary* 🙂
I was 20 places behind you and am now 20 places in front, so no I didn’t 😉
Oh. Erm. Crap. *throws his toys out of his pram* 😆
hehe. you should pick your challengers more wisely mr. white.
Indeed I should – lesson learned! 🙂
So, you up for a challenge? 😛
Ollie, it could be worse:
141st BlogF1 Racing 618 5610
183rd La Canta Magnifico Dragons 5320 (my best team)
