How to play

Choosing your F1 team is easy. Select six drivers from the driver list, ensuring the value of these drivers does not exceed the quota of $50m.

Also, select the one race (starting with the Brazilian Grand Prix on 1 April ) you would like to be your joker race. This race will count double points (both positive and negative points). This race cannot be changed once the entry has been submitted. (If you do not select a joker race, we will automatically select the final race of the season for you). The first two races in Australia (4 March) and Malaysia (18 March) form the warm-up period, which is treated as a separate competition to the main game. This means late-comers still have the chance to win the main prizes. Jokers do not come into effect for the warm-up. You can enter the competition by filling in the entry form above or by going online to and following the links to the Fantasy F1 game.

If you are playing online, you will get a confirmation email once you have registered your team. Please keep this email as it will contain all the information you require for the season.

If you have not got access to the internet,you will get a confirmation letter. This will include details for making offline changes to your team and a personalised PIN and password for internet access.
