Betting on F1 is one of the few sports you can actually win at. Bookies just look at figures, they do not understand the Sport.

Brawn/Mercedes may well come back with a winning car in 2011, offering Schumacher at 16 to 1 is an excellent investment IMO, the chances of Mercedes doing it and MS beating Rosberg in a car more suited deserves a far shorter odds than 16 to 1.

Likewise, Hamilton at 4 to 1 has to be good, many have tipped the McLaren to fly, again their superior KERS technology may make a difference.

Richard, yes, I am aware of Team Orders, so I would say that anybody who bets on Massa needs their head examining, but how does it affect a bet on Schumi or Lewis ?

It does not, my point about the daft odds offered on F1 is valid, they are not influenced by people who understand the sport, just numbers. An avid fan can be in possession of far more information than most bookies seem to bother with.

This gives you a chance to win, overall, cant see any other way of being in that position with Bookies..

I won a lot of money on Hakkinen from great odds, at the time only gifted one race win, but the McLaren was clearly very quick in testing. Bookies put him on long odds that did not reflect his real chances. MS at 16 to 1 seems stupidly generous, I am not a fan of the man, it's just about cash.

Marybeth: If Ross seriously wanted to win he would have hired Kimi.

If Kimi seriously wanted to race in F1 then he'd have accepted the offer from Mclaren last year.
