There's still a chance to win big in the Crash.net Fantasy League F1 2013
competition, but you'll have to move fast if you want to enter in time to be in from the very start!
Even if you missed entering before the Malaysian Grand Prix, you're not at a disadvantage if you want to join up ahead of the start of the Chinese Grand Prix at Shanghai on Sunday morning. Although skipping the Melbourne and Sepang events means that you won't have had a chance to take your team out for a 'pre-season test run' in the Warm-Up Championship
, the serious business of the main competition only gets underway this weekend when the field lines up on the starting grid for the third round of the year.
All points accrued so far over the first two warm-up events have been reset to zero ahead of the start of the Main Championship
, which is where the big prizes are on offer. But you'll have to get your extra-fast soft compound qualifying tyres on to make it, since there's only a few hours left before the F1 Grand Prix of China gets started at 8am on Sunday morning on April 14.
After all, you do fancy yourself as a bit of an F1 expert, right? Never miss a Grand Prix? Then the Fantasy F1 challenge will allow you to put all of that formidable well-developed F1 expertise in your head to good use. As well as showing off your formidable team management skills to everyone you know, you could also win yourself some cash in the process, 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 either: 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 available budget of $100 million. You'll have the opportunity to make up to 25 changes to your team line-up over the course of the season.
If making that sort of selection is 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, so that all you have to do is confirm that you are happy with the selections (or make whatever fine-tuning adjustments you want) 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
So what are you waiting for? Don't delay - get your entry in today! Now! This minute! Or you'll spend the rest of the 2013 season regretting what might have been if only you'd signed up in time to start reaping vital fantasy points from the very start...
