Fantasy F1: Monaco – we find gloom amidst the glamour

This never happened to the man who broke the bank in Monte Carlo – we played one of our Fantasy F1 jokers in the Monaco Grand Prix and scored big on Jenson Button, but so did everybody else and it earned us naff all.

In fact, as a result of the bonus points scored by Team BritsOnPole when Our Jense won from pole, we climbed a mighty seven places to the dizzying heights of 175th out of 417. Woo.

Perhaps it was Monaco’s reputation as a circuit where overtaking is difficult, but half of the teams in the Fantasy F1 contest we’re part of chose to play one of their bonuses – either doubling points, scoring for a random driver, or scoring for the polesitter’s results.

Which is why, far from catapulting us up the rankings, it ended up doing little more than help us break even.

Still, could have been a lot worse if we hadn’t played the bonus. And in Turkey it probably will be since there’s one thing you can be sure of – we haven’t picked Ferrari.
