Sutil Difference In Strategy

with one comment

It was interesting to note that in today’s Q3 Qualifying session, nine out of the ten drivers opted to go for the Super Soft Bridgestone tyre and chase the best possible grid slot. The exception was Adrian Sutil. Force India had been muted in the build up to the weekend as one of the teams that could possibly upset the status quo at the front of the field. This decision to deviate from the norm simply makes that possibility more intriguing. Continue reading…

A Punt On A Podium

leave a comment »

A Sunday Spread

with one comment

The opening race of the 2006 season saw a stunning drive by Kimi Raikkonen from the back of the grid to finish on the Bahrain podium.

Season-Long Spreads

leave a comment »

Sporting Index has finally managed to throw together some spread prices for the Drivers’ World Championships and Constructors’ World Championships markets. Perhaps they read F1Punter? The championship indexes offer a sliding scale of reward depending on where each driver or team finishes (top six for drivers, top three for constructors).
