Well done Jackie!
Four people had their 6 F1 drivers finish in the top six. Mav also had 6 of his 7 in the top six (plus Rosberg), and Dylan got all 5 of his in the top five.
I would’ve been up with the higher scores had it not been for Jeff Gordon only scoring a point but at least I am in good company with the two leaders nearby.
Please see the score-by-score results produced by Sebastian.

After losing 1st position last week, Sean’s now closed the gap by six and the lead is down to just 13 points now.
Maverick has closed in on me by 17 points to lead by a scant two points.
Everyone will be looking to make the most of this week’s races as it will be the last opportunity to pick four winners in a single week!
Races This Week
F1 Korean GP – Yeongam
This could be an interesting race, especially if it isn’t rain-affected. Last year’s debut race led to a long delay for heavy rain so the teams don’t have the level of data they would normally have for dry running, and us fans don’t have a good idea of what to expect either. I like racing into the unknown. I hope it is dry because that means we’ll finally get a good read on what this circuit is really like.
IndyCar Las Vegas
Indycars haven’t graced the Las Vegas oval for a few years now and their return is much-anticipated, much more so after Kentucky two weeks ago where Ed Carpenter proved the Ganassi cars can be beaten on an oval and that you don’t need to be driving a Penske to do it!
There is a much-expanded entry list for this race which will be the final race for the venerable Dallara IR04 chassis – if you’ve got a spare car you’ll never use again why not stick a driver in it? These extra cars could be too many though, I’ve never known an open-wheel race on a 1.5 mile oval with 34 cars (more than Indy!), it could be tight, there could be a lot of silly yellows. Whatever else, it should be fun.
MotoGP Phillip Island
The classic Australian venue often serves a good race and despite a depleted field I trust this year will be no exception.
NASCAR Cup Charlotte
The 600 mile race was won by Kevin Harvick in the spring, who will come out on top over 500 miles this weekend?
To aid your planning these are the remaining races this season:
Week 39 – MotoGP Sepang, DTM Hockenheim, NASCAR Cup Talladega
Week 40 – F1 Indian GP, NASCAR Cup Martinsville
Week 41 – MotoGP Valencia, DTM Shanghai, NASCAR Cup Texas
Week 42 – F1 Abu Dhabi GP, ILMC Zhuhai 6 Hrs, NASCAR Cup Phoenix
Week 43 – NASCAR Cup Homestead-Miami
Week 44 – F1 Brazilian GP
