First, after making some recounts of the Malaysia results I guess it was considered that there was NO accident. However I thought the Glock-Nakajima incident would have been considered an accident. My question is, which is the criteria that makes you decide if a race incident is considered an "accident" for this predictions game? For example, that one or more of the drivers has to retire, that at least a driver has to pit due to the crash, etc.

Then I'd want to ask you if you could post the race results in the same first post where you put the betting results, so that if we wanna check what we guessed and what we didn't, we don't have to go and look for who was (for example) the first to pit, how many teams got to Q3, etc. Thanks in advance :)

Great point. I would like to add one more thing: Do the first pit stop question seek for driver name or team?

So, Busi
An accident is a contact, not necessarily with another car (could be the wall) where at least 1 car cannot continue the race or needs attention. I cannot remember the Glock - Nakajima accident at the moment. I will look into it and get back to you.

Ok, I will post the right answers

Re Xyneid question, it refers to a driver, not a team.
