    I cant see how we will have even tiers unless we remove 1 team.

    Or maybe 1v1 inter team battles?

    1V1 seems more appropriate.
    Or we could remove Marussia.

    thinking about it 1v1 would bring another twist to it.

    If removing Marrussia then Caterham would stick out like a saw thumb. Maybe remove the Top team?

    I like the idea of removing the top team <ok>

    Leaves:

    Ferrari vs McLaren
    Lotus vs Mercedes
    Sauber vs Force India
    Williams vs Toro Rosso
    Caterham vs Marussia
    (At least to start off with)

    Once again thanks for taking over this EB <ok>

    No worries, feel free to copy and paste from my old sweepstakes, just change the dates and names, update the rules slightly, etc. I did that all the time last year, but I don't think anyone ever read them anyway so it was kinda pointless <laugh>


    Lol, just realised that when I first started doing these that you were the one to tell me how to do all this in the first place <laugh>

    Sorry to say, folks, due to intense pressure at work as a result of cutbacks and so on, I'm not sure how much of this season's races I'll get to watch, let alone how often I'll be able to visit the forum. I didn't catch much of pre-season testing other than seeing Mercedes appearing to be strong.

    Obviously I can't commit to being involved in running either the sweepstakes or +/&#8211;. My deepest apologies to the forum for leaving you in the lurch on those fronts and I hope either you find someone willing to do something similar or that I'll be in a better position come 2014.

    Thanks to everyone who got involved in the games.

    Hey Genj,

    Sad to hear. Work sucks doesnt it? If only we took carears in motorsports then all bases would be covered!

    Hope you do get a chance to pop in now and then. And dont worry, The legacy of the sweepstakes lives on!
