Date published: 27th June 2019
It’s another Fantasy GP weekend with the Austrian GP on Sunday. You have until 2pm on Saturday to get your team ready and finalise your predictions.
Note the rather topical ‘Bonus Prediction’ for Austria where ask how many penalties will be given out for the race – for clarity we’re only asking about ‘racing penalties’, so things like Seb’s penalty in Canada and Ricciardo’s 2 penalties in France. Grid penalties and anything else that happens before lights out will not count.
Prices have been reviewed following France and the 3 previous races, check the current driver and car market prices to see if you can trade in any of your team.
Good luck for the Austrian GP, in the meantime, catchup on the news and gossip below, remember, if you have any comments, feedback or anything to say about Fantasy GP, join our Facebook group here.
