Red Bull Return In Qualifying

with 4 comments

Red BullsSaturdays in 2010 have been all about one team. Although Lewis Hamilton may have taken pole position last time out in Canada, Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel still managed second and third on the grid, despite opting to qualify on the harder compound tyre.

Chinese Fastest Lap

Mark Webber and Nico Rosberg are both best priced 12/1 to set the fastest lap in tomorrow’s Chinese Grand Prix. That is a price that is worth a second look. Continue reading…
