Okay, Pharvey and BigBoy had the best race, both with 18 points. The top three remain Pharvey, RZR and Pete. Only two races remaining to knock off the Welshman. :mrgreen: RZR is in with the devil for being the only one to pick Vettel for fastest lap. Why would he even think that? SORCERY! :alien:

2 - redzonerocker 261.00
3 - Pete 260.50

:lach:

My sorcery only managed a point less than the dreaded welshman. :( :mrgreen:

The logic behind the fastest lap choice was quite simple.
Vettel had to start from the pit lane, to get up the field and into the points he would have had got his ass in gear, which he did!
A gamble that paid off :wink: . . . . . :twisted:

Hamilton has control of Practice #1, but not over yet. Don't forget your picks.

Lewis Hamilton v Nico Rosberg: how the title can be won

http://www.bbc.com/sport/0/formula1/29982917

Comedy central. :roll:

Only 3 points separate Vettel, Alonso and Bottas. They'll be racing for pride for sure and should be a good spectacle.

EDIT: Also, last chance for Vettel to win a race this year. If anyone reading and happens to see the last time a champion went the entire next season without a win, please let us know.

According to the Interwebby, it was Jacques Villeneuve in 1998 (champion '97).

Bernie Ecclestone doubts double points plan will continue

F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone doubts if the "stupid" scenario of double points being awarded at the final race of the season will continue next year.

Ecclestone had wanted double points at the final three races of the season but the teams, who he called "bloody idiots", did not go for the plan.

"I'm not going to propose the three races again," he told the Independent.

"I'm going to let them get on with it. I don't know what we're going to do next year."

Briton Lewis Hamilton leads the drivers' standings by 17 points from Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg going into the last race of the campaign in Abu Dhabi on 23 November.

If Rosberg wins, Hamilton will need to finish second to take the title. Under the old system, sixth would have been enough.

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff said: "It would put a big shadow over the championship if it was turned by a technical issue."

However, Ecclestone accused the teams of thinking about the "short term" in not agreeing to his original plan of double points for three races.

"One race is stupid but imagine if it was the last three races," he said. "It means that somebody would have to have a 150-point advantage minimum to be sure they will win.

"The teams have not accepted it because they are bloody idiots. They are all mechanics. They think of their team in the short term."
