Previous Race: Singapore Grand Prix

Sebastian Vettel was commanding in his 9th win of the 2011 season. He is now 1 point from winning the 2011 World Drivers Championship, with five races left in the season. He has 309 points, with Jenson Button sitting in second with 185 points.

Vettel had a lead of 20+ seconds late into the race before a yellow flag brought the cars back together. After the restart, Vettel was pulling ahead again, until late in the race when he slowed down to conserve fuel. With 2 laps to go, Button was closing in on Vettel, closing the gap to under 4 seconds. It appeared that Button might have enough to catch Vettel, but slow traffic kept Button’s lap times down.

Fernando Alonso is currently 1 point behind Button in the points race, but he is now mathematically out of the race for the Drivers Championship.

Previous Race: Italian Grand Prix

The Gran Premio d’Italia is one of the legendary F1 races, held at the equally legendary Autodromo di Monza circuit. In 2010, the podium finished in the exact order it started. Fernando Alonso started on the pole, and won. Jenson Button and Felipe Massa started 2nd & 3rd respectively, and finished in that order as well.

Other notable finishes in recent years include Button who took 2nd in 2009, Vettel winning in 2008, Alonso & Hamilton 1st & 2nd respectively in 2007. These are the only top drivers in 2011 who have finished on the podium in recent years.

In both 2007 and 2010 when Alonso took the wins, he started on the pole. When Vettel won this race in 2008, he started on the pole as well. In fact, in 8 of the last 11 races held here, the winner has come from the pole position. P2 has finished 2nd in 7 of those races as well. P1 has finished on the podium 9 of the last 11, and P2 has finished on the podium in 8 of the last 11. Clearly this is a circuit where starting position is critical. Until we can find a way to predict crashes, we have to look at the very top of the starting grid, and either take the low odds, or find a wager that offers better value. Personally, I prefer to place Podium bets and Top 6 bets for this race, looking for better odds.

For podium bets, I like to find someone with proven results on this circuit that might be starting in P4-P6. For example, if Alonso, Button, Vettel or Hamilton start in P4-P6, I’m likely to place a podium bet on them. However, Top 6 bets generally offer better odds because there is more movement back in the pack than there is at the top. So, it’s more likely to see P9 move into the top 6 than to see P6 move into the top 3.

At the Italian Grand Prix, Podium and Top 6 bets come down to experience at this circuit. This isn’t a time to select a driver who has yet to prove himself here. Michael Schumacher is a great example. While his 2011 F1 season hasn’t been great, this 5-time Italian Grand Prix winner is always capable of carving his way into the top 6. He is currently offered at 8/11 odds at Bet365.com – much better odds than any of the top 4-5 drivers in the 2011 World Drivers Championship standings.

Previous F1 Race Information

Although Silverstone has a lot of tight, hard turns, it’s a very fast circuit. Cars are wide open for a large portion of the circuit, making up for slow speeds on some of the tight turns. This circuit gives an advantage to cars with the best acceleration and top speed, something that is exposed during qualifying. During qualifying, watch acceleration speeds coming out of turns 4, 7, 9, 14, 15, and 18. Watch top speeds heading into turns 1, 6, 9, 10, 15, and 16.

History shows us that winners can come from any of the top 4 starting grid positions. There are plenty of overtaking opportunities, so the polesitter is not a lock to win. Of course we have to consider Vettel the favourite here, but even if he starts on the pole there’s no guarantee he will win. Once testing is well underway, I’ll be looking for the best value within the top 4 starting positions.

Heading into the 2011 British Grand Prix, Sebastian Vettel sits on top of the World Drivers Championship points race with 186 points. He is followed by Jenson Button and teammate Mark Webber, who are tied with 109 points. Lewis Hamilton is in the fourth spot with 97 points, and Fernando Alonso is in fifth with 87 points.

Unless something crazy happens, Vettel has the Drivers Championship locked up. At this point, he doesn’t need to win a lot of races – just finish on the podium. The only way he can lose is if Button or Webber run off a series of wins, and Vettel finishes off the podium several times. Not likely to happen.

I hate to call anything a lock, but even at 1/16 odds at Bet365, Vettel looks like easy money. What’s crazy is that Hamilton is listed at 20/1, but Button is at 28/1 and Webber is at 50/1. This makes no sense considering Hamilton has the fewest points of all these drivers. What makes this even more bizarre is that Webber is driving the same car as Vettel, of course the RBR Renault. If you want to go for a longshot here, Webber at 50/1 is the way to go…just make sure to keep that wager small.
