Welcome to Reality F1 2021
Reality F1, the free Fantasy Formula 1 competition, returns for the 2021 season!
After just three days of pre-season testing it was Red Bull that looked the fastest and arguably had the best test. Mercedes appeared to struggle but rarely go for headline times in testing. McLaren also looked strong. Down the grid there have been a few driver moves with Pérez moving to Red Bull and Vettel to Aston Martin being the most notable changes. There are also some exciting new drivers on the grid such as Yuki Tsunoda and Mick Schumacher (son of seven time World Champion Michael Schumacher).
We also have the prospect of additional sprint races this year. The current proposal is to have sprint races on the Saturday of a normal race weekend at three of the Grand Prix. The sprint races will determine the grid for Sunday's race and, in turn, the starting grid for the sprint race being set during qualifying on the Friday. At the time of writing the exact rules for the sprint races have not been confirmed but, when they are, I will update the RealityF1 rules.
In terms of the RealityF1 competition I've kept the budget for teams at £70M and there are over 6,000 possible team combinations. I've also kept the cost of championship changes (after you've used your three changes) to 20 points.
The deadline for team entries (or changes to team components for the coming race) is 12 midnight GMT on the FRIDAY before a normal race weekend (rules yet to be set for the weekends with sprint races). So, in order to be eligible to score points in all rounds of the 2021 season you will need to register a team before 12 midnight GMT on Friday 26th March 2021. You can join after this date but won't score points for missed races.
