IFA dazzles on streets of Monaco

IFA Darren Cunliffe emerged victorious in the bid for the seventh race

prize of this season&#39s LeggMason Investors Fantasy Formula One competition

as his team held off the opposition by a solitary point.

The manager from Manchester accumulated 35 points in the world&#39s most

fashionable Grand Prix, with four of his drivers achieving top six finishes.

Michael Schumacher was top points scorer in the race with 11 points,

taking advantage of David Coulthard&#39s inability to start his car on the

parade lap to cruise to his fifth race victory on the streets of Monte


Cunliffe&#39s side also contained Jaguar&#39s Eddie Irvine, who capitalised on

his best qualifying position of the season to finish third.

BAR&#39s Jacques Villeneuve finished fourth followed by sixth-placed Jean

Alesi of the Prost team.

In fact, Alesi is the only driver to have completed all seven races thus

far in the campaign, hence explaining his imp-ressive season total of 34

points, making him the third-highest points scorer overall.

Cunliffe also played a well-timed joker, thus doubling his points for the

race to 70 and in doing so enabled him to rise up to eighth in the overall


Barry Wood, another manager who played his joker at Monaco, saw his side

storm to the top of the leaderboard as a result of his team, Wood Good

Racing, accumulating 66 points in the race.

Roger Dickenson remains as the highest-ranked manager not yet to have

played his joker despite falling slightly to 10th place.

Retirement - thumbnail

(Another) downhill stroll — retirement planning
