Torpedo Challenge

F1C Torpedo Challenge Picks for The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix are due in








Congratulations to our very own Somky for winning the Brazilian Grand Prix edition of the Torpedo Challenge.  That’s two in a row for him.  The top picks for the race were Max for Tier 1, Carlos for Tier 2, Checo for Tier 3, Carlos as the wildcard driver, 4 DNFs, and once again Red Bull for fastest pit stop with a 1.82s stop for Verstappen.  For all the newbies out there, that’s fast AF!

Select the race you wish to make picks for. Your submission closest to the start of qualifying (but before qualifying starts) will be used.
