Round 4: Montreal, Canada*
Round 5: Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium*
Round 6: Monte Carlo, Monaco*

*Dates will be determined by mutal consent after each Round
Races will take place on pre-agreed Sundays, at 11:00am GMT.
Each race will run for 30% race distance (may be increased in later rounds if deemed necessary).
The grid for each race will be determined by a 15 minute qualifying session, immediately prior to each race.
Tyre and Fuel simulation will apply – drivers will need to run both the Prime and Option tyres at some point during dry races.
Damage will be set to Cosmetic only.
Weather will be set to Dynamic, wet races are a possibility.
All driving aids will be left available.
The Points System:
Points for the Championship will be awarded using the real 2010 FIA points system:
1st) 25 points
2nd) 18 points
3rd) 15 points
4th) 12 points
5th) 10 points
6th) 8 points
7th) 6 points
8th) 4 points
9th) 2 points
10th) 1 point
Points will only be awarded if the driver is successfully running at the completion of the race. DNFs or disconnects will result in no points being earned.
After Round 7, each driver will nominate a race result to ‘drop’, causing them to lose the points they gained for that particular Round. The Championship table will be altered to reflect this before the final Round commences.
After Round 8 is completed, the driver with the highest total points score will be declared the Official F1Fanatic World Champion.
Deliberate unsportsmanlike behaviour such as, but not limited to, excessive weaving, deliberate ramming, driving around the track the wrong way, parking across the track to block other drivers will result in a warning and then a ban from the Championship if warnings are not heeded. That driver’s place in the Championship will then be offered to reserves on a first-come, first-served basis.
Drivers unable to make a Round of the Championship will not be penalised if they notifying the others of their absence prior to that Round taking place. Drivers who don’t turn up to multiple races without notifying in advance may have their place in the Championship offered to a reserve.
Invites will be sent out at 10:55am GMT (5 minutes before event start). Drivers can join at any time between then and the 11:00am GMT start, but if a driver fails to enter the room within that time, without notifying that they will be late, the race will begin and that driver will not be allowed to join the session.
After qualifying, there will be a 2 minute wait to allow drivers to prepare for the race, during which time no one is to select ‘Go to Race’ on the menu screen.
There will only be one attempt at each race, no restarts.
Gentlemen, see you on the grid at Albert Park.
