We rely on results published by the official F1 organization. If this information is not available for some reason, then gppool.com will decide.
Any adjustments to the official results (in connection with doping, etc.) that arise after gppool.com has updated the scoring will have no effect on the updated scoring. In other words: we will not adjust scorings.
You can earn points for each of your predictions (No. 1-8). Points are calculated as follows.
8 minus the absolute difference between the place value in your prediction and outcome.
For example: Driver X in your forecast for the Australian Grand Prix at number 7 ends in this race as third.
8 - | 7-3 | = 4 points
Another example: Rider Y is in your forecast for the Chinese Grand Prix at No. 4 and finishes fourth in the Chinese Grand Prix:
8 - | 4-4 | = 8 points.
Last example: You placed Rider Z in your prediction for the European Grand Prix at No. 2 and he ends as eighth in the European Grand Prix:
8 - | 2-8 | = 2 points.
For each Grand Prix you can earn a maximum of 64 points.
