> FAST FORECAST

Fast Forecast

Fast Forecast is an action Losers Teams can take alongside Boost ButtonsPitlane Punts, Ejector Seats and the Lucky Spanner.

With Fast Forecast, you:
  • pick a driver
  • predict an outcome at the next race 
There are five types of forecast to choose from.

Win points for correct AND incorrect predictions. The worst that can happen on each prediction is you lose 5 points.

Predictions must be submitted by the end of Saturday unless stated otherwise. No more than five Forecasts per race.

Here's an explanation of each type of forecast. Scroll down for the submission form.


OPENING LAP FORECAST
  • Predict that your chosen driver drops three places or more on the first lap of the race
  • This means their race position at the end of lap one is at least three positions down on where they started on the grid. This also includes retiring from the race.
  • Guess correctly and win 25 points. 
  • If you are incorrect but they are still down at least one place by the end of the first lap, win 5 points. 
  • Any other outcome costs you 5 points.

PENALTY FORECAST
  • Predict that your chosen driver is penalised during the race
  • This means any stop-and-go, drive-through or time penalties imposed by the FIA, including those applied to the final results.
  • Guess correctly and win 25 points. 
  • If you are incorrect but they get a Backwards Bonus, Earliest Exit or a Beige Flag from the Losers League, win 5 points. 
  • Any other outcome costs you 5 points.
  • No, we're not including grid penalties.

QUALIFYING FORECAST
  • Predict that your chosen driver will qualify 16th, just missing out on Q2. 
  • Guess correctly and win 25 points. 
  • If you are incorrect but they still qualify within two places of 16th, win 5 points. 
  • Any other outcome costs you 5 points.
  • This prediction needs to be submitted before qualifying starts, obviously.

RACE RESULT FORECAST
  • Predict that your chosen driver will finish the race in 11th place, just missing out on championship points. 
  • Guess correctly and win 25 points. 
  • If you are incorrect but they still finish still within two places of 11th, win 5 points. 
  • Any other outcome costs you 5 points.

STOP TIME FORECAST
  • Predict that your chosen driver will have one of the three slowest pitstops of the race
  • This includes all pitlane time lost in a pitstop, including driving through the pitlane and any penalties served. 
  • Guess correctly and win 25 points. 
  • If you are incorrect but their pitstop time is still one of the 25% slowest, win 5 points. 
  • Any other outcome costs you 5 points.

All forecasts are for the next grand prix on the calendar, not for future races after that.
