The F1 Losers League is an upside-down fantasy league celebrating the blunders and backmarkers of Formula One.
No podiums here: only red flags, retirements and regrets.
HERE'S HOW TO CREATE YOUR LOSERS TEAM
Entries to the F1 Losers League are closed for 2021. Read on anyway, if you fancy.
To play, you need to set up the worst Losers Team you can. Your team should comprise:
We've listed the 2021 drivers and constructors here.
Your choice of team members isn't entirely flexible: you must obey the Pit Garage Rule.
Once you're depressingly resigned to your pathetic team formation, enter your team into the F1 Losers League (it's free!).
HERE'S HOW YOU EARN POINTS
Drivers and constructors earn race points for bad performance. Look out for cars finishing outside the top ten or retiring from a race.
Your Losers Team picks up race points earned by your chosen team members. Your team will also gain or lose points from team actions you have taken – or have been forced to take due to Break Assist (see below).
Scores are announced a few days after each grand prix.
PARTICIPATE WITH TEAM ACTIONS
As the season progresses, you can carry out team actions in an attempt to increase your scores.
Here are the team actions you can take in the F1 Losers League.
- Double your scores with Boost Buttons.
- Gamble your points on a Pitlane Punt.
- Predict the fate of a driver with a Fast Forecast.
- Change your team members with an Ejector Seat.
- Detonate your entire team (!) with the Lucky Spanner.
We have a cheeky points tool called Break Assist designed to help struggling Losers Teams – whether they like it or not.
If you're not scoring enough Losers Points, Break Assist is coming for you... Read more about Break Assist.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO KNOW MUCH ABOUT FORMULA ONE
The F1 Losers League is designed to appeal to everyone, even if you don't really follow Formula One.
The site will help you make choices, and will entertain you with the more colourful elements of the sport's loserdom.
With plenty of points information on hand, just follow the numbers.
F1 LOSERS CHAMPION 2021
By the end of the season, one disaster-ridden Losers Team will tower above the rest as F1 Losers Champion.
There are no prizes. Maybe you can celebrate by pouring champagne all over yourself. You'll have to buy the champagne.
Every other team that doesn't become F1 Losers Champion will have failed to become the biggest failure, which is a paradox even we haven't worked out yet.
The F1 Losers League was created and is administered by Fat Roland^, who has never won a grand prix and therefore is the ideal person to run a fantasy league dedicated to F1 flops.
