Scrub Era F1: 1990 - A new decade begins

1990 Wiki page - LINK

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

The 1980s were one of the most turbulent eras in the history of Formula One. They saw the rebirth of the World Championship; the emergence of Nelson Piquet, Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna, and most tragically the deaths of four Formula One competitors. After the chapter came to a close with the immediately infamous Senna-Prost collision at Suzuka, the sport will have resolved that the new decade can be different. But will it?

With a record-breaking array of teams to take to the grid for the 1990 season, will McLaren come out on top again? And if they do, will it be with Prost, Senna, or someone entirely new?

Rules

World Championship
- 9 points shall be scored for a win, 6 for 2nd, 4 for 3rd, 3 for 4th, 2 for 5th and 1 for 6th.
- New for 1990, all points scored by a Driver will count towards the World Drivers Championship.
- All points scored by a Constructor will count towards the World Constructors Championship.
- There shall be no more than 16 races held for the World Championship.

Pre-Qualifying
- The top 10 teams (20 cars) from the 1989 World Constructors Championship start the season exempt from Pre-Qualifying.
- If there are more than 30 entries for a Grand Prix, then the remaining entries go into Pre-Qualifying. The top 10 Pre-Qualifying cars progress to Main Qualifying, in which they will compete for the 26 places on the starting grid.
- All one-car teams are automatically entered into Pre-Qualifying.
- From the second race onwards, the top 10 two-car teams in the World Constructors Championship are automatically entered into Main Qualifying. If there are fewer than 10 points-scoring teams, then the remaining automatic places in Main Qualifying are decided based on the previous season's Championship standings.
- The Spreadsheet will be updated with any changes to Main Qualifying and Pre-Qualifying teams before each race.

Drivers
- Drivers are either "Salaried Drivers" or "Pay Drivers"
- Salaried Drivers have a suggested salary listed; teams can offer more or less than this value, but this affects their RNG odds.
- If a Salaried Driver is sacked partway through the season, their team will be expected to pay the remainder of their contract. If they are injured, then their salary will be covered by insurance.
- "Pay Drivers" pay a predetermined amount; you cannot ask them for any more money. If a Pay Driver is offered a salary, they cease to be a pay driver for the rest of their career.
- Pay Drivers pay their money up front for the agreed amount of races; should they be fired before completing their full contract, they will be repaid the difference.
- A maximum of one driver may be offered a two-year contract; one-year extensions can be offered during the pre-season of what would be the driver's final contracted year.
- Teams may not use more than four drivers in a season without specific dispensation from the FIA (me), and cannot fire a driver before they have been entered to a race weekend.

Chassis
- Teams can either build a new chassis for 1990, or update their 1989 chassis for the new season.
- Should a team choose to buy a customer chassis, they will earn World Constructors Championship prize money for that chassis.
- Chassis may be sold and traded from team to team, but may only be used if a team chooses to "Make It Your Own". If in doubt, check with Aislabie.
- If you wish to upgrade your chassis in-season, you can invest in a B-Spec chassis, but only if you have the available funds. (This is in place of a race-by-race upgrade system.)

Engines
- All teams must buy an engine supply for the season.
- Teams which build their engines have control over whether or not they sell their engines to customer teams.
- Should a team choose to change their engine supplier mid-season, they will have to buy a new full-season engine contract on top of the one they already have.

Tyres
- You will need tyres. Please budget for them.

Sponsors
- When signing a sponsor, you must specify which Tier Goal you intend to aim for.
- Sponsor money is paid up-front to help your team as soon as you sign your sponsor.
- Should you fail to achieve your sponsor goal over the course of the season, you will have to repay the sponsor and it will hurt your chances of signing with them again the following season.

Prize Money
- Most prize money will be paid for World Constructors Championship positions at the end of the season.
- Prize money for race wins (£50,000 per race) will be paid out at the end of the race.
- F1 Indoor Trophy prize money is paid out immediately after the Trophy; teams can only enter the Trophy if they have the money available to do so.

Going Bankrupt
- Your team will go bankrupt if, at the end of the pre-season, you are unable to pay the FIA Entry Fees (which include travel costs). For a one-car team this is £300,000 and for a two-car team this is £500,000.
- Your team will also go bankrupt if they do not manage to build a car, consisting of adequate chassis, engine(s) and tyres.

Modifying the Rules
- I have probably forgotten something; if this is the case, I will edit the rules and make a post to announce whatever it is I am adding or changing.
- From 1990 onwards, I take on the FIA's role of deciding on rule changes and the like.

My full thanks to Pasta, from whom I have taken extensive inspiration, and to both Pasta and Hermann for proof-reading my series spreadsheet.

Given that I am FISA in this universe (for sake of argument, we shall say Balestre was removed for bringing the sport into disrepute), I shall respectfully decline this request.

Yes it is allowed. Tyrrell is confirmed, and I've taken the liberty of appointing myself as manager of Rial, but I am happy to hand them over to somebody else if you are keen to take them off my hands.

Available teams are:
  • Brabham
  • Scuderia Italia
  • Osella
  • Larrousse
  • Coloni
  • EuroBrun
  • Rial
  • FIRST
  • Middlebridge

Sign Your Sponsors!

Greetings all - it is time to sign your sponsors. This will be a huge step for a lot of teams, so let us first go over the rules:

Sponsors
- When signing a sponsor, you must specify which Tier Goal you intend to aim for.
- Sponsor money is paid up-front to help your team as soon as you sign your sponsor.
- Should you fail to achieve your sponsor goal over the course of the season, you will have to repay the sponsor and it will hurt your chances of signing with them again the following season.
In order to specify the choices for your team, please full out the following form to submit up to five choices. Please note that sponsors will pay the same amount for a one-car team as a two-car team, although one-car teams will be obliged to pre-qualify (I will edit this into the rules later tonight as I previously forgot to include it).

Code: Select all
Team:

Sponsor Choice 1: (available sponsors are listed on the spreadsheet)
Sponsorship Amount: (most sponsors will offer more sponsorship for more challenging targets)

Sponsor Choice 2:
Sponsorship Amount:

Sponsor Choice 3:
Sponsorship Amount:

Sponsor Choice 4:
Sponsorship Amount:

Sponsor Choice 5:
Sponsorship Amount:




A note on RNG

In Scrub Era F1, RNGs will work slightly differently.

In Scrub Era, all first choices will be handled first. This doesn’t sound like a huge change, but it could create a very different vibe to a normal RNG. The quickest way to demonstrate is using a worked example.

Coloni sponsor bids:
  1. Lucchini
  2. Fondmetal
  3. Pirelli
EuroBrun sponsor bids:
  1. Fondmetal
  2. Subaru
  3. Pirelli
Larrousse sponsor bids:
  1. Toshiba
  2. Elf
  3. PIAA
Osella sponsor bids:
  1. Lucchini
  2. Fondmetal
  3. Jagermeister
In this situation, Lucchini has two first choice bids. For the sake of example, RNGesus chooses to bless Osella.

Fondmetal has only one first choice bid, so they sponsor EuroBrun.

Toshiba has only one first choice bid, so they sponsor Larrousse.

This leaves us with the following situation:

Coloni sponsor bids:
  1. Lucchini
    Fondmetal
  2. Pirelli
EuroBrun sponsor bids:
  1. Fondmetal
Larrousse sponsor bids:
  1. Toshiba
Osella sponsor bids:
  1. Lucchini

In this hypothetical situation, when we move on to Coloni’s second choice, there is only one choice left from their selections (Pirelli) so they become a Pirelli-sponsored team.

This is a little different to in other RNGs, as there will be no “waiting for a second-choice offer” - it is presumed that the second-choice offers will not be made until after the first-choice offers have been rejected.

This will apply to all RNGs in Scrub Era 1990, and will be reviewed ahead of 1991.

I am going to impose a deadline of midnight tonight for sponsor bids; at that point, I'll autopilot your team's sponsor bids.

That applies to AGS, Ferrari, FIRST and Zakspeed
