Attrition Game: Singapore Grand Prix

The season’s flashing by faster than the cars on track. We’re already finished with the European segment of the calendar; all that’s left are the flyaway races scattered throughout various countries and continents. Singapore is the first of this chunk of flyaway events, cars sparkling under the lights as they wind their way through tight corners and chicanes.

PLAYERS:

* Tweeted after formation lap; win does not count as a result. Still gets to play, though. I’m not that mean.

I’m amazed Crashy Maldonado kept things clean in the first turn.

Special thanks to @graemefowler, who got some new players to join in today. Thanks, Graeme!

We have two winners today (technically three but John knows the rules!): congratulations to @rob_pike and @graemefowler!

Attrition Game: Italian Grand Prix

Monza is the last European race. It’s also the big race for Ferrari, as their legions of tifosi cheer ruthlessly for their boys in scarlet while the other teams look on. In three two weeks, we’ll be in Singapore. Until then? MONZA.

Players:

We had two winners today – both @johnneese and @fhchandler correctly guessed five. For a long time, it looked like there would not be any winners, but the closing laps brought three retirements is quick succession.

Good race today. Can’t wait to see what happens in Singapore….

Attrition Game: Belgian Grand Prix

(aka SPA! SPA! SPA!)

It’s been a crazy, busy August. Writing for The Idler, working on several work projects, trying to play chess as much as possible. It’s been a long wait for Spa, which is always a thrilling race. Today’s race didn’t disappoint, for sure.

Players:

The first turn, first lap shunt that took out four cars almost immediately set the tone for the first race segment. Ultimately, six cars didn’t finish, which means we have a winner! @TrillF1, shifting slightly from her usual game tactics, correctly picked six cars out this week. Congratulations, Sara!
