    I would have gone for 5, or failing that 11.

    I guess I'll go for 18 - just sounds like a Vettel number.

    The mod with the list is probably laughing.

    Well, without wanting to make things too complicated, it might provoke less ridicule and provide more interest in the race if we split the teams into three tiers and rewarded the highest qualifier and race finisher in each tier:

    Red Bull
    Ferrari
    McLaren
    Mercedes

    Renault
    Sauber
    Force India
    Toro Rosso

    Williams
    Team Lotus
    Virgin Racing
    HRT

    Or possibly move Renault and Williams up a tier.

    Wouldn't be a bad idea, Forza and Jersey stand no chance of winning the race. Those groups would be good. Hopefully we'll get enough people in each tier though, so far we only have Forza and Jersey in tier three.

    So I am not in tier three, I am going to guess that I've got Petrov.

    I wouldn't think that's fair since there's already been some discussion about your choice.

    If all the slots aren't taken by Thursday morning then I guess you could have number 10 as your second choice, if we're going to allow second choices.

    I think the mods should keep shtum until all the numbers have been allocated. :emoticon-0127-lipss

    That's a good idea. I hadn't considered that the mods would join in but we could do it that way.

    Little mini-picking game rules:

    Choose one mod and one unpicked number to give them. First three posts apply.

    On another note, this is a brilliant idea Genji

    Looks like second choices are out, we've got more than 12 taking part, and I'm sure more people will come online tonight and pick a number themselves. And as Forza said, great idea Genji.

    Instead of an ordered system to pick the numbers, would it not be fairer just to use a random number generator and go through the drivers to find out which driver is which number?

    What do you mean? Assign a random number to a forum member that correlates with a driver's car number?

    I just thought this was more like picking numbers out of a hat and it also ensures that, for each race, members have to take part and aren't just rolled over from the previous race.
