So if we were to characterise our SofaF1 Championship you could see a lot of similarities with the real season. You’ve got Nick Heidfeld playing Fourstar, underpowered nobody expected too much but he’s delivered over the course of the season and kept up with the bigger names. Nick is up there as Lewis Hamilton, plucky Brit (although he’s from Ireland – Nick not Lewis), leading from near the beginning of the season finally being caught by Alonso playing Bearded Stew. And then you’ve got Kimi playing me, could still overturn the whole thing, but it’s going to take some misfortune from the others.
Thinking all of this I decided to do us a couple of charts to show how we’re all doing. I think it’s clear to see we’ve been improving all year (or maybe the races are becoming more predictable).
Only! Hold On! We seem to have our very own SofaF1 scandal that’s bringing the reputation of the game crashing to a new low! Little did we realise the danger of putting Alonso (Bearded Stew) in charge of the championship. There seems to be a points discrepancy! According to that second chart Nick should be two points clear at the top of the table, but according to Stew’s last post they are level pegging! WHAT? IS? GOING? ON?
Ahem! I think there’s probably just a typo somewhere in one of Stew’s post (I checked I hadn’t copied it incorrectly about three times). My guess is the total is right but one of results has an incorrect score for the individual races – or something! Anyway – let the repercussions commence.
Here’s my version of the scores for handy reference:
