Formula 1: Against The Odds

Curse of the Pole Position

leave a comment »

Any of you MotoGP fans will probably be aware of this season’s amazing statistic that no pole-sitter has gone on to win the race in 2007.  That is zero from nine attempts.  The same is far from true in F1; Sunday’s French Grand Prix saw just the second time in eight races where the fastest man on Saturday did not see the chequered flag first.

I will be watching out over the next few weeks for circuits where historically the driver in pole position has gone on to win the race and will crunch the numbers to see whether the bookmakers are giving up a bit of value.
