Fantasy Racers reminder - China - Select your F1 driver choices for the upcoming race in Shanghai

Published by Christine

Before the season gets too far underway, if you haven't already signed up to the Sidepodcast Fantasy Racers league, then head here for all the information. If you're setting up a new team, you might be a couple of races down on points but there's still plenty of time for you to beat me. (And by me, I mean Mr C of course, because I'm doing so much better this year.)

With much thought (at least five minutes) put into my selection choices this time round, here's where I went. I immediately ditched Trulli for Glock which is so stupid because it's the opposite of what I did before the last race, and I should have just kept the German. I also decided to get rid of Räikkönen, for many reasons but mostly because they no longer have KERS. And the ice cream thing, as well. In his place, I selected Vettel because... well, Dank has bet on him to win, and it seems like a good way to go. Here's my final China lineup:

Jenson Button13.8
Nico Rosberg8.6
Rubens Barrichello10.3
Sebastian Vettel9.2
Timo Glock9.1

The prices are correct at the time of writing. I was left with 1.4m to spend, and an overal team total of 51, so it's definitely an upward curve. I also just discovered the "View Change History" on the driver selection page, which is fascinating, because I am very forgetful about who I swapped and when. It will tell an interesting story at the end of the season.

The deadline for team changes is 5pm BST (4pm GMT), so don't forget to head over to Fantasy Racers and make your selections. If you're feeling particularly confident, let us know who you've gone for, or whether your lineup remains the same.
