Formula 1: Against The Odds

Sebastian at Spa

with one comment

Just a quick post to say that I very much agree with the reasoning in the last few paragraphs of Tom Millard’s preview.

Vettel looks on super form and his confidence is high. The extra horsepower from the Ferrari unit will certainly be an advantage at Spa, whilst Vettel’s performances in Asia at the end of last season underline his ability in the wet.

With the appearance of a safety car always likely, the possibility of an upset has to be on the cards. 200/1 was a headline grabbing price from SportingBet which has already gone, however 125/1 with each way terms (1/5th 1,2,3) remains available with PaddyPower, Stan James and Ladbrokes.

16/1 for a standalone podium is still available and a top three finish can’t be ruled out completely, even without the turmoil caused by weather or the safety car.

The high attrition rate at the Spa-Francochamps circuit and the less-than-perfect reliability of the Ferrari engines makes a points-finish bet at just over Evens seem slightly less appealing.
