F1 FANTASY GAME! GET IN YOUR GAME!

Idea for the pitstop bonusses...

 I would like to propose an idea for the game's future pitstop predictions:

Instead of making it basically a huge gamble which can generate an out-of-proportion amount of points, i think it might be more attractive to create something similar to an actual pitstop window...
Keep the 5 points for a correctly predicted pitstop, but add more options to score points by giving one less point for a prediction that is one lap earlier or later.
And then two points less for being 2 rounds off.
And so on, creating an effective scoring window of 9 rounds.
For instance, an actual pitstop in round 14 would create these points:
r10-1p
r11-2p
r12-3p
r13-4p
r14-5p
r15-4p
r16-3p
r17-2p
r18-1p

Of course it could be made into a smaller window with lesser points available, if desired, but what do you guys think?

Re. Idea for the pitstop bonusses...

This seems like a very good idea. Thanks about it.
Lets discuss it to choose the best window size and points about it.
I would suggest something like the table below. Again based on your example where the pit stop was made at lap 14th.
 LapPoints
 11 1
 12 2
 13 3
 14 5
 15 3
 16 2
 17 1
That way if you guess the exact lap you can get at least 2 points more than closest predictions.

That looks good to me! :)
Even better with the little points gap for the exact lap!

Re. Idea for the pitstop bonusses...

 I am all for the change which ever one, think I prefer F1FG choice
So hard this year to get close with the new tyres.

 Good idea, Missing out by 1 lap you feel a bit robbed

Re. Idea for the pitstop bonusses...

 I also like this idea, but feel the +/- 3 window should be a little smaller.

I reckon +/- 2 is a happy medium, as it gives a window of 5 laps.
