I'm starting to get really excited for the season. No idea what we're gonna see. I'm guessing it'll be closer than last year but not quite as close as 2021.

What I'd really love to see is a 3 or 4 way fight amongst drivers. Having Merc vs RB is fun but when it's really just Ham v Max with the 2nd driver on each team having no real role except act as a blocker, it takes away some of the fun. And I think George could be maturing enough to give Ham a real run for his money this year. Throw in a few Max retirements and a strong showing from Ferrari (lol) and we could get a great championship battle.

Then of course the best of the rest could be interesting. Do Alpine continue to falter with reliability? Are McLaren ever going to take another step? Can AM move back into top 4 status?

I don't get how none of the major race series are giving points for pole when so much effort is spent winning it.
I dont disagree that winning a pole should garner something, but its hard in a F1 pool when you really only have 3-6 drivers with a reasonable shot.

Its why I suggested the most correct picks gets that 3rd prize. Maybe we combine the ideas and say whoever picks the most 10th place slots correctly wins?? With crashes, mechanical failures, penalties, etc. nearly any driver could realistically end up there.

One thing I did forget...Sprint Races. I personally think they're kind of gimmicky, but they do spice up the GP. I have NOT included them, but I can.
