What Happens If I Register a Team After the First GP?:
Do not worry if you did not register a team for the First Grand Prix or for any other GP's that you have already missed.
To make our site more interesting we have added a feature called 'Ranking by Team Start'.
This means that NEW teams that are registered for a GP will form an automatic 'sub-league'.

Editing a Team:
To edit your team, you must first be logged in. When you have logged in to the site, select the 'Edit Team' link on the menu.
Sponsors (Supreme game):
The list of sponsors that are available for you to negotiate with will become more extensive as the season progresses. You may negotiate a contract for a maximum of 6 races, after that you will need to negotiate again. There are 10 places to put sponsors averts on your car, this means that you may have more than 1 sponsor at any 1 time. Use the PLACE menu to select the following: A: Title Advert Place B: Major Advert Place C: Minor Advert Place. Negotiations with sponsors can be difficult. You will receive an answer in 5 minuts. If a sponsor rejects you, you may apply again after 5 minuts. For deals with sponsors for more than 1 race, you will recieve your sponsorship money before each race.
Team Testing (Supreme game):
The Team Testing feature allows you 1 set of tests between each race. Team testing allows you to improve for the next race. Improvement is shown as a % and will be added to your actual Grandprix scores for the next GP. The % improvement shown is then added to the number of points you get during the race i.e. if you get 100 points, with the 18% improvement you will now get 118 points. Testing can be expensive but it may help you increase your team ranking. Use the pull down menu options on the page to select who and what you are going to test. The system will show you the % that you will improve by according to the options that you select.

Driver, Chassis, Engine and Tyre prices will all change according to their performance during each GP weekend. If the performance is good in both Qualification and the GP, then the purchase and re-sale price is likely to increase. If performance is bad, then the purchase and re-sale price is likely to go down. For the 'tactical' manager, this can be an excellant time to pick up a 'bargain' !

How The Leagues Work:
The Leagues system was created to allow players to play in 'Private' leagues against friends, workmates etc. In order for a friend or workmate to join your league, you must send them the 'username' and 'password' that you entered to create the league. Without the league user name and password other people will not be able to join you ! In order to be able to create and / or login to the 'Leagues' area you must first login normally to the site. If you have not yet registered you must do so first. There are 2 possible League games in F1 Grand Prix Manager.
How the Scoring Works:
View the tables below to gain an understanding of how scores are allocated for Drivers, Engines, Chassis and Tyres.
The table below shows the scoring for Driver Number v Qualification (right table entitled 'Qualification') and Qualification v Final Position (left table entitled 'Race'). The scoring works like this:
Coming in to each qualification session, each driver has a ranking number. If the driver is ranked at 5 and qualifies in position 2, the driver will score points. If a driver enters qualification ranked 2 but qualifies in 5th position, the driver will loose points. The same applies for the actual race. This scores calculated ONLY if driver was classified.
The scoring system applied above for Drivers, is also applied to Chassis and Engines. Chassis and Engines are ranked according to their best 'ROW' position coming into qualification. In turn, scores are calculated based on results between qualification and the actual race. This scores calculated ONLY if Shassis/Engine was classified.
