Everybody who watches sport likes to think they could do a better job than the manager of whichever team they support, be it football, Formula 1, rugby, cricket or whatever.

In the past, I’ve had an attempt at fantasy football but never ventured into the fantasy F1 realm before.

Sidepodcast have posted about this subject though which has prompted me to give it a go this year.  They have set up a league on www.fantasyracers.com where anyone can register a team and then join their league (see Sidepodcast’s post here for details of how to join their league) which I’ve duly done.

It’s not too involved unlike some other fantasy sport games - basically you have a set budget of $35million and can choose as many drivers as you can afford with that sum rather than having to also try to choose chassis manufacturers, engine suppliers etc which may feature in other games.

At the moment I’ve gone for Raikkonen, Heidfeld, Glock and Rosberg but as you are allowed to change your mind as often as you like prior to the season starting, I’m sure that lineup will change more than once!

So go on, give it a go - should make the season even more interesting!
