    Fgp 2021

    Welcome to the 2021 FGP Season!

    In FGP we pick a Formula One team with a budget of $48,000,000 for the 2021 season.

    To complete the team, pick three drivers (two official drivers and a 3rd driver), a chassis and an team engine.
    For the third driver choice, which costs 1m, is any driver that does not appear on the price list.
    Finally, pick a bonus GP which will score double points for your team at that race.

    Once complete please choose a name for the team and then post your entry in this thread.

    You have until the end of the day on March 27th, 2021 to submit your team.

    Good luck and thank you to all who enter!

    Sainz finished higher than LeClerc. That is why he costs more, but I do not rate the drivers simply by where the finished last year.

    Team TrueSpeed makes a radical new lineup

    Name: Truespeed F1
    Driver 1: Vettel 11
    Driver 2: Tsunoda 7
    Driver 3: Albon 1
    Chassis: Mercedes 20
    Engine: Ferrari 9
    Bonus GP: Azerbaijan

    ==Press Release==
    So we decided to further distance ourselves from Team McMafia in 2021, although we wanted a driver lineup of Gasly and Stroll our analysts fear that Stroll might not pull his weight and Vettel, despite a diminished reputation, will probably outshine him (if there are no shenanigans within the team). The loss of Gasly will be slightly offset with the choice of Tsunoda, a rising star, who we feel might produce decent results. Hulkenberg as the 3rd driver seems like an easy decision, given the continued covid crisis as well as being well established as capable of showing up in a moments notice and delivering. But ultimately we decided with Albon for 2 reasons. The odds are in his favor with 4 available seats and only Gasly of those 4 having come down with Covid. The chasis will be continued with Mercedes as between Bottas and Hamilton it is almost a guarantee that 1 will be on a podium more often than not. Our curiosity with the Ferrari engine and our faith that they have actually turned the corner on their decline makes this choice an absolute steal. The Bonus GP will be Azerbaijan. This GP, more than any other seems to through up unpredictable results year in and year out.
