    GTXFFF1 2018

    Usual team cost: 40 mandatory (no more, no less, duplicate teams not allowed)

    Two rule changes:
    1. You're getting the driver, not this seat (like 2016 and prior)
    2. There's a draft order, reverse of last year's standings. An actual draft is not feasible, just submit your picks and the lower seeds get priority over the top finishers should there be duplicate teams (honor system here, don't scroll down and take dodint/IMOA's picks). Draft will be enforced one week only, picks starting next Monday will be first come first serve.
    Code:
    Cost	Driver	Constructor	Driver full name
    ----	------	-----------	----------------
    26	HAM	Mercedes 	Lewis Hamilton
    22	BOT	Mercedes 	Valtteri Bottas
    18	RIC	Red Bull 	Daniel Ricciardo
    18	VER	Red Bull 	Max Verstappen
    21	VET	Ferrari 	Sebastian Vettel
    14	RAI	Ferrari 	Kimi Räikkönen
    6	HUL	Renault 	Nico Hülkenberg
    5	SAI	Renault 	Carlos Sainz Jr.
    4	PER	Force India 	Sergio Pérez
    4	OCO	Force India 	Esteban Ocon
    3	ALO	McLaren 	Fernando Alonso
    2	VAN	McLaren 	Stoffel Vandoorne
    3	GRO	Haas     	Romain Grosjean
    2	MAG	Haas     	Kevin Magnussen
    2	STR	Williams 	Lance Stroll
    2	SIR	Williams 	Sergey Sirotkin
    2	HAR	Toro Rosso 	Brendon Hartley
    2	GAS	Toro Rosso 	Pierre Gasly
    1	Sauber	Sauber (both)	Marcus Ericsson & Charles Leclerc
    Submit picks here via replies, deadline is first practice of the season (in roughly 10.5 days).

    Everyone can post their picks now, though I suggest the red teams wait a few days or use the spoiler tag (may have to come back to you for revised picks)

    I picked immediately so when I'm forced off I can still be right when the team later wins.

    Ferrari may take half a step back, plus Sainz may be surpassed by the McLarens or Hassess's
    Both Ferrari and Red Bull are a risk, that means team suck may finish on the podium this year

    Here's a recap of how the numbers came about:

    Started with 2017's results as a baseline, only three notable changes:
    Red Bull is predicted to be just ahead of Ferrari so they cost roughly the same (RBR was grossly overpriced last year)
    Renault is the mid-field favorite
    Williams is a dog (was going to make Sirotkin only cost 1 but they still have the Mercedes engine and I don't want a bunch of Vettel + RBR teams separated by only Sauber or Sirotkin)

    I didn't believe in Ferrari last year either (and they almost took me out).

    I had a secondary team in mind but I don't want to root for either of those guys, no fun in it.

    Mercedes is looking just as dominate as the previous four years, but the softer tires don't suit them /crosses fingers for a hot summer
    If Hamilton has another 2017 where he doesn't finish on the podium. every. single. time. we have a chance
