How Castrol Does The Scoring:
You can change your predictions up to and including 5 minutes before the start of qualifying on the Saturday before each grand prix. Any changes made after this time will not take effect until the following grand prix.
Points will be awarded as follows:
- 10 points - Correctly predicted finishing position.
- 5 points - Prediction one place away from actual finishing position.
- 2 points - Prediction two places away from actual finishing position.
- 0 points - Prediction more than two places away from actual finishing position.
Extra points can be scored under the following criteria:
- 5 points - Correctly selecting the driver on pole position.
- 5 points - Correctly selecting the driver with fastest race lap.
- 5 points - Correctly selecting the driver who gained the most positions.
The bonus points system is simple and based on individual race performance. Bonus points will therefore be awarded for achieving the following landmark sequences or predictions in any race as follows:
- 100 bonus points - Correctly predict the top 10 finishers in position in the same race.
- 60 bonus points - Correctly predict six of the top 10 drivers in position in the same race.
- 30 bonus points - Correctly predict the top three finishers in position in the same race.
- 20 bonus points - Correctly predict the driver on pole position, the driver with the fastest lap and the driver who gained the most positions, all in the same race.
- 10 bonus points - Correctly predict the winner of a race.
These bonus points will be awarded each time you make the corresponding correct prediction during the season.
For 2014 you will also be awarded 20 bonus points the first time you either set-up a private league or join a private league (please note, the points earned for this one-off bonus will only appear in your score after the next race calculation.) For more about private leagues, read further down.
