RACE DEBRIEF

    F1 Fantasy returns for 2020 – and to get you raring to go before the Australian Grand Prix, here are six reasons you should get involved this season.

    1. Win exclusive prizes

    It’s not just bragging rights on offer in F1 Fantasy this year but prizes – and a whole host of them – to keep you on your toes throughout the 2020 season, from signed caps to F1 Paddock Passes.

    Here’s what you could win by finishing on the 'podium' in the Overall Leaderboard.

    1st Prize
    Wins 2x Paddock Club Passes to a 2021 Grand Prix

    2nd Prize
    2x Grandstand Tickets and Paddock Passes to a 2021 Grand Prix

    3rd Prize
    F1 TV Pro or Access (depending on territory)

    And that’s not all. The person with the top scoring team each week wins an F1 team T-shirt. The person with the top scoring team in each Official F1 mini-league wins a signed F1 cap. And many more prizes will be offered throughout the season in the Leagues Lobby. Bear in mind, though, that only your Team 1 is entered into the global, constructor and country leagues for the year – and, of course, terms and conditions apply.

    Team merchandise is just one of the smorgasbord of prizes on offer for 2020 F1 Fantasy...

    2 Mega Drivers!

    Think you’re onto a winner? Now you can back your intuition with a Mega Driver bonus, multiplying their score by three. So you have a chance to rake in the winnings – but beware: a negative score will also be tripled.

    There’s no price restriction on Mega Drivers – Mega Lewis Hamilton, anyone? – and you can play your bonus twice per season. Oh, and Turbo Driver bonuses, which double a driver's score, can be played on any driver under $20m. It’s time to walk the walk…

    4. New year, new look

    Whether they're on a hot or cold streak, F1 Fantasy visualises how your drivers have been performing over the last few races, making it easier to pick a winner. There's a new look and feel for 2020, too, to make it even more player-friendly.

    Price changes will be reflected hourly subject to substitutions in/out

    5. Dynamic pricing

    Play the markets this season with pricing for drivers changing depending on how often they're subbed in and out of teams. Buy low, sell high, or just revel in the fact that your chosen driver is making you a healthy profit. Your budget can now increase above $100m.

    This feature will kick in once qualifying for Australia starts, with prices updated on an hourly basis! The F1 Fantasy site will also reflect – with either a green or red arrow – how much the price of your driver has changed, with a ‘sentiment bar’ showing how likely the price is to change.

    6. It’s easier than ever to sign up

    All you have to do is sign up, select a team, invite your friends and play to your heart’s content. See the 2020 F1 season in a whole new light as you scrutinise the drivers’ performances up and down the grid. So sign up now!
