Haven't posted on this forum before,so apologies if this has been asked previously.
How would the Profit or Loss have been if you had backed the driver in pole over say the last 3 years.I accept that the guy on pole is usually odds on,as he is entitled to be with overtaking so limited now.

Pole odds are usually around 1.7. In theory you would have made nothing, as the odds are generally based on stats from previous seasons.

I say pick your races and you can easily make money. For example in Japan, Vettel was trading at 1.7, he was in the fastest car on the grid, and is generally faster than his team mate. On a dry track in sunnny conditions, 1.7 is great value. He also had Webber behind him, who had almost no interest in trying to overtake him and was happy with second.

Compare that to say Hamilton nicking pole with the slower Mclaren, in variable conditions with rain expected during the race, and 1.7 is perhaps not value.
