With F1 field heading to Malaysia this weekend for the second round of the new season, time is running out if you want to get your entry in for the new Fantasy F1 competition with Crash.net
- with Sepang being the final chance to check you've got the right team in place before the real action gets underway!
If you fancy yourself as a bit of an F1 expert and never miss a Grand Prix, the Fantasy F1 competition will allow you to put all of your formidable well-developed F1 expertise to good use and win yourself some cash in the process. It'll tick all those boxes and scratch all your team manager itches, while keeping you entertained season-long from first lights-out to the last drop of the chequered flag.
For just a tenner per team, you get to cast yourself in the role of the ultimate team manager. That's right, just £10 per fantasy team gives you the opportunity to prove that you can outwit the likes of Christian Horner, Stefano Domenicali, Martin Whitmarsh, Ross Brawn et al. Shouldn't be too hard, now, should it?
Picking your fantasy team couldn't be easier: all you have to do is select six drivers and a constructor from the respective lists, ensuring that the total value of your team does not exceed your budget of $100 million as you go. If that's too much strain for a busy mogul as yourself, you can do what some F1 teams seem to do every year and use our Lucky Dip team selector to do all the hard work for you. That will randomly select a valid team, and all you have to do is confirm that you are happy with the selections - or make some fine-tuning adjustments - before submitting your line-up.
Upon registration, you're automatically entered into all of the competitions, where you will compete for the chance to win £20,000 in prizes - including a first prize of £5,000 and a runners-up trip to the 2014 Monaco Grand Prix, the undoubted 'jewel' in the F1 crown. There are also £100 prizes for the winners of each of the 19 races of the season.
Think you can spot the 2013 success stories? Will it be Sebastian Vettel
once again or is it Fernando Alonso's turn to claim the title? Will Jenson Button
be able to see off a challenge from his brand new young team mate in the shape of Sergio Perez? How will Lewis Hamilton
fare at Mercedes? or will there be a major surprise in 2013 from Lotus, Toro Rosso, Force India, Caterham, Williams
or one of the other teams?
Before you throw yourself headlong into the main competition, you can use Malaysia this weekend for some 'pre-season testing', with the race being part of a two-race Warm-Up Championship
alongside last weekend's Australian GP.
While you might have missed the boat there by not getting your team in before the Albert Park
race, you can still fight for the Main Competition
, which will get underway in China.
After the Malaysian GP, all scores to date will be cleared in preparation for the Main Championship
, starting with the Chinese GP at 08:00 BST on Sunday, 14 April, from which point on you'll have to make do with just 25 team changes to use for the remainder of the season.
