The 2013/14 F1F Formula One Playstation Winter World Championship will be the fourth running of the F1 Fanatic Playstation Winter World Championship, one of a series of Championships run by the Federation of F1 Fanatic Gamers (FF1FG). This season will be run using the F1 2013 game created by Codemasters.

The 2013/14 Championship will undergo substantial revisions to the calendar following the inclusion of classic content to the F1 2013 game. As is common with the F1 Fanatic Playstation World Championships Australia and Abu Dhabi will bookend the season with Canada and Monaco also keeping their spots due to being known as 'classic races'. In addition all four tracks included in the F1 2013 classic content will be added to the calendar; Estoril, Jerez, Brands Hatch and Imola.

Jamie Franklin will start the year as the defending Drivers' Champion while Lotus start the season as defending Constructors' Champion.

Team Changes

The list of Teams for the 2013 season are:

  • Caterham
  • Ferrari
  • Lotus
  • Marussia
  • McLaren
  • Mercedes
  • Sauber
  • Williams

Red Bull, Force India and Toro Rosso are left out of the Championship.

Driver changes

  • Reigning Champion Jamie Franklin left Lotus to follow in the footsteps of the Champions before him by joining Ferrari.
  • Shane Butler will join Ferrari to mark his first proper assault on the Winter Championship following two 'one-off' appearances in the 2011/12 campaign for Caterham (then Lotus).
  • With Franklin departing, Lotus were left with a free seat which has been promptly filled by Harry Westwood who, like Butler, will compete in his first full season of the Winter Championship following two 'one-off' appearances.
  • The series first ever Champion, Ed Greenhalgh, will return to the Championship this year racing for Sauber following a sabbatical.
  • Series debutante Dylan Lopez will drive for McLaren as the teams only driver.
  • Joesph Jones will also make his debut in the series taking a seat at Mercedes.
  • Ben Moody returned to the series with his favoured Williams team.

Rules

The agreed rules between the drivers are as follows:

The Championship will use the 2013 game.

Races can only be moved to a different date or time if everyone agrees. If the host cannot make it or is not online at the race time, then a substitute will host the race and it will go ahead as usual. No individual is bigger than the series. The current list of hosts in order is: bradley1314, jamiefranklinf1.

Race incidents will be looked into by the Championship Co-Ordinators Bradley Downton and Jamie Franklin. In the event one of them is involved, the other shall make the decision. If both of them are involved, the rest of the racers shall make a decision. They will both seek opinions from other drivers if deemed necessary. This includes revoking in-game penalties, crash penalties and other misdemeanors (such as using excessive run-offs). The list of penalties is as follows:

  • Reprimand (If three or more reprimands are gained the driver in question will be handed a Qualifying ban.)
  • 10 Second Penalty
  • 20 Second Penalty
  • 30 Second Penalty
  • Qualifying Ban (If three or more Qualifying bans are gained the driver in question will be handed a race ban.)
  • Race Ban
  • Race Disqualification

If three of more Race Disqualifications are gained the driver in question may be excluded from the Championship.

If you complete 90% of the race distance, even with a DNF, you get points. If not, you don’t.

Invites for the Chat room will be sent out at 9:45am (15 minutes before the event starts). Joining the chat room is mandatory as this is used for the two minute break between Qualifying and the Race - therefore if you have not joined the chat room an invite will not be sent. During the two minute break, no one is to select ‘Go to Race’ on the menu screen. I, (or whoever is the nominated host for that particular round) will ask you all to confirm that you are ready to proceed before beginning the countdown to the start of the race.

Invites will then be sent out at 9:50am GMT (10 minutes before event start). Drivers can join at any time between then and the 10:00am 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.

If a driver has notified to be late a vote will take place as to whether we wait and for how long. If this time period expires and the driver in question has still not joined then a final invite will be sent just before the rest of the competitors begin racing.

Disconnections

Qualifying will not be restarted under any circumstances for anyone who disconnects. An invite will be sent out to everyone just before the event starts in the case that anyone disconnects during the first few minutes of Qualifying. These drivers will then (hopefully) be able to re-join. If a driver disconnects and cannot rejoin for any reason they will unfortunately miss the race. If a third or more of the field disconnects at any point during Qualifying the session will continue and the restart procedure will be used. This involves setting up a new lobby that is race only. Racers will use the first lap to get into the Qualifying order and will begin racing exiting the final corner on the first lap, there will be no exceptions. If anyone fails to comply they will be disqualified and given a race ban. Anyone who is given a blocking or any other kind of penalty on this lap must provide video or photographic (a picture of the Race Details page once the race has finished and we are back in the Lobby) evidence to have it overturned. If anyone picks up damage during this lap it is unfortunate but there is nothing that can be done.

If there is a mass disconnection (a third or more of the field) before 75% distance, the race can be restarted as though there was a red flag. We will start another race in a new lobby (with the distance set to roughly how long the race had left to run), and on Lap 1, we all get ourselves into the race order at the red flag point, with the leader acting as the Safety Car – so going at a slow pace. Then, on Lap 2, we continue racing. If anyone can't make it (time-wise or is having trouble connecting), then the race will be ended and points awarded for however far the race has progressed, ie, half points for under 75%, full points for over. If anyone fails to comply to getting into the correct order, they will disqualified and given a race ban.

Absences

Drivers that fail to attend races without giving prior warning will be given a warning that – if not heeded – may result in their seat being offered to a reserve. If it’s not possible to attend a race and you notify the others in advance, you will not be penalised.

Forum Behaviour

The philosophy hasn’t changed since last season: if you have a grievance about something that happens on track involving another competitor, do NOT make angry, accusatory, childish comments in this thread. We do not accept or put up with that sort of thing in this series. That is your one and only warning. If you have an issue with someone else, first of all remember that this is a video game and if you’re really that upset by it, you should maybe reconsider your life priorities. Secondly, if you wish, contact the person with whom you have a grievance in private, either through F1F PM, PSN or another private channel.

With the addition of 'Classic Content' for F1 2013 all four of the classic tracks included in the game will be included on the calendar. These are Brands Hatch, Estoril, Imola and Jerez.

These circuits come at the expense of Brazil, Hungary and Malaysia.

Please Note: The Monaco Grand Prix will begin at 9:30am instead of the usual 10am start time. This is due to a Collantine Cup race on the same day at 11am.
