Portuguese F1 Grand Prix 2020: Guess winner, podium: PRIZES!

Post by joelk »

We are now going South, to warmer weather, for the Portuguese Grand Prix... :D



The official start time of the Portuguese Grand Prix will be Sunday, October 25th, at 1.10 PM local time, which is 12.10 PM in London and 12.10 AM on Monday, October 26th in Sydney. No guesses will be accepted after that time.


So pick up a(nother) glass of, well port I guess (or whatever strikes your fancy), and let's play for another round! :D :D

First here are the rules. They are unchanged from last year's:

You need to be a Stampboards member - joining up is free -

Register here!

To qualify for winning a prize here, all you need to do after you join up is to make sure you contribute at least 5 (on topic) posts to philatelic threads, not including requests to receive freebies, before the start of the GP.

I will check your posts in the event you have a winning guess in order to verify this qualification.

If you did not quality for any reason, the prize will go to the next eligible post.

To participate, you must name five different drivers, in the order you believe they will be officially classified, from the winner, to the fifth finisher.

One guess per Stampboarder, and it cannot be changed once it has been made. Editing in the same post will also no longer be permitted.

You will get one point per driver who finishes in the same position as your guess, so a maximum of 5 points at each race.

- Prize 1: the winner is the person who gets the most points at that race. If there is a tie, the earlier guess wins.

- Prize 2: the winner is the person who gets the most points at the end of a three race sprint. In case of a tie, the earlier guess on the third race of the sprint wins.

The winner of Prize 2 then has a choice: he or she can go for the default Prize 2, which will always be a four margin penny black, or he or she can choose to accumulate more points to ‘purchase’ an alternative Prize 2. Once you have chosen to accumulate, there is no going back until you have 'bought' an alternative Prize 2. The accumulation can only go until the end of Season 2021, as this format will continue for the next two seasons.

The list of Prize 2's along with how many points you need to purchase them, is shown below.

Once you have won a 3 race sprint, if you do not elect to take the Penny Black on offer, you will continue to accumulate points for Prize 2 as long as you wish (but not past the end of Season 2021) in order to ‘purchase’ an alternative Prize 2.

You can do so at any time once you have accumulated enough points to ‘purchase’ the Prize 2 of your choosing.

Once you have chosen a Prize 2, whether the Penny Black or an alternative Prize, your Prize 2 points count will be reset to 0.

If you do not choose the penny black, it will be on offer for the next three race sprint.

This is designed so that anyone who wins a three race sprint will at some point be able to claim a Prize 2, whether a four margin penny black or an alternative Prize.

Everyone else will have their Prize 2 points reset to 0 to restart the three race sprint, except the Prize 2 points 'accumulators'.

There can be several Prize 2 points 'accumulators' at the same time, as long as they have not 'purchased' their Prize 2.

- Prize 3: the points are counted and accumulated in the same way: 1 point per correctly placed pilot at each race, but everyone gets to keep their Prize 3 points until the season's last race, where the highest point accumulator wins.

Prize 3 will be attributed on the occasion of the last Grand Prix of the 2020 season.

If there is a tie, the contest continues only among the Stampboarders with the highest score, until the tie is broken.

Anti-shadowing rule for Prize 3:

- This rule applies to the top three Prize 3 points accumulators at any race: the #1 accumulator will have to post their guess at least three hours before the official start of the race, the #2 accumulator two hours before the official start, and the #3 accumulator one hour. Everyone else has to put in their guess before the official start time of the Grand Prix.

- There will be zero tolerance for any time 'overshoot', even if it is one second, and any editing for all contestants, and no excuses accepted: my computer slowed down, Stampboards loaded too slowly, my cat stepped on my keyboard…so please note this carefully as I want to avoid any unpleasantness or ambiguities.


And here are the Prizes:


- Prize 1 comes from Belgium and consists of the four sets issued by Belgium and engraved by Jean De Bast between 1946 and 1949, showing the portraits of Belgium's rulers since the middle ages that are hanging in the Senate Room. Hence the name for the sets 'Princes of the Senate'. (all sets MH except the first one MNH):

- And here is the list of Prize 2's:



First, the Penny Black that will be attributed on October 25th, on the occasion of the Portuguese Grand Prix, with the check letters SJ:


RussianGP2020_0001p.jpg




The first Alternative Prize 2, costing 10 Prize 2 points, is the iconic 'Pont du Gard', here in MH condition, issued by France in 1930, and engraved by Henri Cheffer:

Image

The second Alternative Prize 2, costing 12 Prize 2 points, consists of two iconic Sinking Fund Stamps issued by France in 1928 and 1931 and engraved by Abel Mignon, both offered here in MH condition:

Image

Image

The third alternative Prize 2, costing 14 points, is a GB classic, the KEVII £1 green:

Image

The fourth alternative Prize 2, costing 16 Prize 2 points, is the Cardinal Mercier set of Belgium, issued in 1932, also MH:

Image

Image

Image

The fifth Alternative Prize 2, costing 18 Prize 2 points, is the Orval set of 1929, reissued in 1929 with a crown overprint, to commemorate the laying of the first stone towards the restoration of the Orval Abbey (offered MH here):

Image

Image

Image

Image


The sixth Alternative Prize 2, costing 18 Prize 2 points, is pretty exceptional: it consists of all the Buzin bird stamps, ie all formats, face values and of course all birds, issued over the past 30 years. There are 113 stamps and one Souvenir Sheet, all MNH of course:

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image


The seventh Alternative Prize 2, costing 22 Prize 2 points, consists of the first 16 stamps of Belgium, including the three variants of the imperforate 'epaulettes' (framed double L watermak, L watermark and unwatermarked). All the imperforate stamps are four margin examples:

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image



And Prize 3 for the 2020 season is an echo of the 2018 season, which offered a virtually complete run of the small format surface printed stamps. It's time therefore to offer the larger format, high values issued in the latter part of the Victorian reign and under Edward VII. All these stamps are sound (no creases, tears, bent perfs, etc...):

And now it's all up to you! :D

Cheers,

Joel.

There was a lot of speculation Bottas would get a grid penalty this race - but it seems NOT -


2020 Portuguese Grand Prix Posted on

22nd October 2020, 9:51 | Written by Keith Collantine

Valtteri Bottas will avoid a grid penalty at this weekend’s Portuguese Grand Prix following the power unit failure he suffered during the last race.

The Mercedes driver retired at the Nurburgring after a problem developed on his power unit. Mercedes has confirmed a new control electronics unit and energy store will be fitted to Bottas’s car this weekend, bringing him up to the maximum number permitted for both parts.

However Bottas will not need to exceed the maximum permitted number of any parts, which would have led to an automatic grid penalty. Other Mercedes-powered drivers will also receive the same new hardware as Bottas.

The team fitted several new components to the cars of Bottas and team mate Lewis Hamilton prior to the Eifel Grand Prix. Team principal Toto Wolff said the decision to stop Bottas’s car when they did avoided more serious damage to the power unit.

“We have identified a failed electrical component in the control electronics as the cause of the problem,” said Wolff, “and the evidence suggests that swift action in retiring the car prevented mechanical damage to his power unit.”
