Ready to race? Fantasy Formula 1 on Fanteam!

Join the Fantasy Formula 1 on Fanteam and start your engines! The king of motorsports is here, with the largest Formula 1 fantasy contests in the world!

10 teams, 20 drivers and thousands of mechanics traveling around the globe in the most intense, cut-throat competition out there.

The Fantasy Formula 1 Format

We had to make this one special… And we did! Starting this weekend, you will be able to draft your team of 5 drivers, set your captains and enjoy the Grand Prix action! 

Qualifying and Race performance both count on a driver’s score, so Saturday noon is the time you want to remember every weekend. 

All drivers score points for their performance on the track, based on their final positions and the performance against their teammates. Bonus points are awarded for Fastest Lap & Driver of the Day!

Formula 1 contests will run in our Pursuit format. In Pursuit, you have enough budget to pick any 5 drivers you want, highlighting a Captain and a Vice-Captain who score more points for you, but at the same time cost more (2x and 1.5x). 

That’s why I love Pursuit! Interview with German DFS-Player Simmmen.

But you need to play smart! The cheapest your roster is, the more Pursuit bonus points you will receive. So don’t focus only on picking the winners, but finding the sleepers that overperform might win you the top prize.

The Fantasy Tournament Schedule

Deadline to enter is the official starting time of the Qualifying session. This is usually at 15:00 CET for European events, but might be later in the evening for the Americas or even Saturday morning for events in Asia or Australia. 

Keep in mind though! After the qualifying starts, all teams will be locked for the rest of the weekend – so pick wisely!

The Fantasy Formula 1 Scoring

Each Grand Prix consists of 2 racing events – Qualifying and Race. Drivers will score points on each one of the events, and their total points is the sum of the points they gathered in both.

You can find all scoring points in the support center.
