Australian Grand Prix 2024 results

The Australian Grand Prix looked like it was set for another race of Verstappen domination after he took pole. The practice sessions weren't as comfortable as previous races for the Red Bull driver though and the Ferraris were looking good. In the race Verstappen was passed by Sainz early on but this was because the brakes were failing on the Red Bull and Verstappen was forced to retire. Sainz led home Leclerc to give Ferrari a one-two in Australia.

In RealityF1 it was a tie between jc091275 and JNB in the Reality F1 Australian Grand Prix. Their team was Magnussen, Piastri, Ferrari and McLaren. The best team for this race would've been: Sainz Jnr, Hülkenberg, Ferrari, Haas scoring 166.5 points

Saudi Arabian Grand Prix 2024 results

The Saudi Arabian Grand Prix was another imperious victory for Verstappen. He looked untroubled throughout and led home teammate Pérez and Leclerc was third. Oliver Bearman the youngest British driver in history finished an impressive 7th while he stands in for Sainz at Ferrari. With another one-two finish for Red Bull is it too early to say the season is over and it's just a waiting game until Verstappen and Red Bull are crowned again?

In RealityF1 it was Brendan C who won in the Reality F1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. Their team was Verstappen, Hülkenberg, Aston Martin and Haas. The best team for this race would've been: Piastri, Hülkenberg, Red Bull Racing, Haas scoring 138.5 points

Bahrain Grand Prix 2024 results

Red Bull started the 2024 season in the same way they approached the 2023 season, exert total dominance over the rest of the field. Verstappen started on pole and drove to an untroubled victory. Pérez started fifth and worked his way through the field to finish second and give Red Bull a one-two finish. The perfect way to start the season but an ominous portent for the rest of the season.

In Reality F1 the the season opening race in Bahrain was won by Andy Stod with a team of Magnussen, Zhou, Red Bull Racing and McLaren. Interestingly this was the best team possible within the Reality F1 budget for this race. As it is the first race of the season the Championship leaders are the same as the race winners.

In the league competition it's The Robbins-Flowers Family that take an early lead and United States lead the country championship.

Welcome to Reality F1 2024

Reality F1, the free Fantasy Formula 1 competition, returns for the 2024 season!

After the total dominance by Red Bull in 2022 and 2023 seasons will anyone challenge them in 2024? Ferrari looked strong in pre-season testing and Mercedes looked a little better than they were this time last year but Red Bull still looked like the class of the field. This season is the longest in F1 history with 24 races (and 6 sprint races) and, if Red Bull are as dominant as last year, it really will be a long, long season!

In terms of the RealityF1 competition I've kept the budget for teams at £70M and there are over 5,500 possible team combinations. I've shamelessly priced Verstappen, Pérez and Red Bull high because I want there to be a significant downside to picking them this year. Without doing this I think the Red Bull components will be a default pick for players and that negatively impacts the competition.

The deadline for team entries (or changes to team components for the coming race) is 12 midnight GMT on the FRIDAY before a race weekend. So, in order to be eligible to score points in all rounds of the 2024 season you will need to register a team before 12 midnight GMT on Friday 1st March 2024. You can join after this date but won't score points for missed races.

If you played last season then you just need to log in and you can create your new team. If you've not played before then you'll need to sign up.

Game on!
