Very true. One year ago at this moment, icy2 was in the lead and Chief was in third.

History to repeat since I'm in third right now?

if you're truly a fan, you'd know you have a pick to make Salami. Singapore is next week.

Are the reminders not routinely sent out on a regular basis (I don't get them, so don't know), or is this a once in a blue moon type of thing? No one's perfect, and people can forget. There's lots of ways you can remind yourself/find out when the races are.

This fantasy league keeps me interested in F1, not the other way around.

I'll set my own reminders from now on

No big changes to the standings after Singapore. The only change was due to uzzmaan forgetting to make a pick.

Disaster with Red Bull at Suzuka has made a big shuffle on the boards. F-C is now within sight of Chief for the lead. With only five races left, who will be victorious?

Watch out for icy2. He's been saving his Mercedes picks.

on top for 9 races, I don't think I'm going to be able to maintain the position given my main competitors' available picks.

West jumps into third place as the season winds down. Only two more races before the champion is crowned. Will Chief repeat? The last time this happened was back in 2009 with Dougler.

I think I could get boned by this rule's inequality:

" At the end of the season you will be awarded bonus points based on the final standing prediction with the following: 10 points if your first pick wins the championship; 15 points if your three constructors finish in the top three regardless of their position; 5 points if your two of your constructors finish in the top three regardless of their position; and 1 point if only one of your constructors finish in the top three regardless of position."

Should be 15 for all 3; 10 for 1st two; 1-catch all.

What a final burst from icy2 as he jumps to a tie with West for third place. It's going to be dramatic finish to the championship in two weeks.

Chief has been leading for eleven straight races. Will it be heartbreak in two weeks for the globetrotting attorney from Buffalo? Or will we get our first repeat champion in six years?

After 19 races, we have Chief still on top of the table. icy2 continues his late season charge and jumps to P2, while F-C drops a spot to P3.

After the lowest scored race is removed, we have one change to the standings. F-C jumps icy2 by 0.5 points to retake P2.

Final standings






There you have it, the final 2015 standings after the bonus points are added.

In a dramatic turn of events, F-C goes past Chief to become world champion.

No matter your allegiance, one must feel bad for Chief, who had led the championship since the Austrian GP on June 21. However, Chief's mistake in predicting that Red Bull would be a top 3 constructor at the end of the year ultimately determined the fate of the universe.

icy2 had a courageous run to finish the season. After being down +100 points and nearly dead last at the midpoint of the season, he makes a brilliant comeback to finish on the podium.

What can be said of F-C that hasn't been said before? Now a two time world champion, the world has never had a more beloved hero.

Just like I said: too big of a jump between getting 3/3 and 2/3 for Constructors. Oh well, congrats FC. Next year that rule gets fixed before just 2 people weigh in.

The change worked as I intended. It's easy to pick Hamilton and Mercedes to finish first, so the wild card is predicting who follows them.

I'm open to changes. Any suggestions? Are the bonus points too much? Maybe average the drivers' and constructors' bonus like we do for the individual races rather than just add them together?
