seen this offer , and im no expert on grand prix but i do know that vettel seems to win every race nearly, the bet is vettel to win brit grand prix, to be on pole, and to have the fastest lap, is 5/1 on this happening a great bet ?

Interestingly Vettel has only one fastest lap in the 8 Grand Prix so far this season.

You'd have to fancy him to get the pole/race double with Silverstone being a real Red Bull circuit but rather less confident in him getting the fastest lap - he can often be in such a dominant position that he doesn't need to be pushing hard when the fuel load is lighter

The new rule (part 2) on off throttle diffusers / engine mapping comes in to play this weekend but personally I would be surprised if that were to hurt Red Bull much more than others.

looking at current bookie prices  5/6 race win, some 2/1 fastest lap and 1/2 pole position I think you'd be better off looking at the individual bets if you strongly fancy him.
obviously you can't just do an effective accumulator on those prices as they have some linked dependence but they seem a better route to back Vettel to me.

Its a fair price but hardly a "fab bet", considering he is over 2/1 to just get fastest lap alone, then 5/1 for all 3 isnt anything special. Obviously he is likely to be on pole and also the most likely winner judging on what we have seen so far this season, but bearing in mind the new changes being brought in with the exhausts (which may bring Mclaren and Ferrari closer, and also the weather forecast is mixed for this weekend, then I would advise caution before charging in.

Good luck whatever you decide.

I didnt see brentford's post when I was writing mine.... I am surprised he is only 1 from 8 on fastest laps.... definately worth swerving on those stats...

much better [smiley:crazy]
Its **** in your pants better!!

can only get £5 online and the shop are having none of it Cry

Ignore this garbage about engine mapping, weather forecast is ok so red bull will run riot this weekend. Their superior aero owns Silverstone and Suzuka. engine change will kill mclaren (see pre season testing) so only threat is ferrari which is pretty weak at this type of circuit

one sticking point, anyone like to guess the last driver to win 3 british GPs in a row ? that's what vettels aiming to do this weekend.

Laugh i do apologise i forgot webber won last year didnt he, almost forget webber exists these days
By:

dont see what relevance your 'sticking point' has to anything Confused

barring a significant incident, red bull will be 1-2. Id make it about 2/1 so 5/1 is huge if you can get on  Cool
By:

When: 05 Jul 11 11:55
well the point is it doesnt!

I'll lay you that 2/1 all day long how much would you like ?
By:
Zazu
When: 05 Jul 11 12:21
If i believe something is a 2/1 shot, betting at 2/1 isn't getting any value surely Confused

What price would you make it? High speed corners = red bull domination.
By:
fkqmz
When: 05 Jul 11 14:21
no thats quite correct, unlike most of what ive written today which hasn't exactly been clear!

nothing to confuse about this though. the correct price of a red bull 1-2 is currently 3.60. thats what i'd give you right now.
By:
fkqmz
When: 05 Jul 11 14:23
i'd consider boosting to 4.0 on small bets but the correct price is 3.60.

I agree 5/1 red bulls 1-2 is a big price (Ladcrooks only go 9/4).

I have tried to open an account with Bet Fred, even if I can only get a £5 on, but its saying my email account is already registered with them, so I must already have an account... and I cant remember my log in Cry
By:

When: 05 Jul 11 16:37
how have you calculated the correct price to be 3.6?

PM you might get more on. my account has stupid restrictions and they wont accommodate anything via traders/phone because its a special Devil


Have people missed how stupidly amazing red bulls aero is compared to everyone else? Confused

No, that seems poor value to me.
By:

When: 06 Jul 11 14:56
its not meant to be value, its meant to be correct!

btw its drifted a bit now, the correct price is now 3.75

big brave korals have gone up with 4.0 so they obviously dont think its happening. have betfreds still got the 6.0 up?
By:
Zazu
When: 06 Jul 11 15:02
you've still not said how you've calculate the 'correct price' Confused

corall dont think its happening Confused
you could argue it heads their market so they believe it to be the most likely outcome Cool

betfred are still 5/1 fkqmz.

LaughLaugh and who in their right mind would LaughLaugh

like i say, judge my 'correct price' on where it sits as the weekend developes - its still 3.75 btw. anything over 4 is value.
By:
Zazu
When: 07 Jul 11 11:59
so its not a correct price at all, just your opinion Plain
By:
fkqmz
When: 07 Jul 11 13:32
no it its not opinion, its mathematically derived so its absolutely, indesputably correct. possibly shortening a bit again now. bit more like the 3.60 i said it should be in the first place!
By:
fkqmz
When: 07 Jul 11 13:34
btw this is my last post now till next week so
everyone whos going - enjoy it, see you there
everyone whos not - hope you win lots of money betting in running

3.60 - 3.75 will be the final price pre-practice [;)]

do you know how the new rules are going to affect each team? - no, even the teams dont
do you know how new upgrades are going to affect each team? - no, even the teams dont

you've probably not even seen the simulations!


if you've derived it from other markets. a) you've probably done it wrong and b) that would assume all those prices are correct which isn't true

Not saying the bet won't win but it's terrible value.

When: 07 Jul 11 22:55
5/1 is BAD value, the driver who is on pole and who wins, often does not do the fastest lap. Also Vettel is well overdue to have a bad race, so I wouldn't be surprised if he retires or suffers mechanical problems.
By:
SamH_123
When: 07 Jul 11 23:20
PrinceRob the convo moved on from the opening post a while back, we're talking about 5/1 for Red Bull 1/2.

And are you saying Vettel is more likely to have a bad race because his year has so far been trouble-free?  Not sure that's good maths

my bollyes accounts stupidly limited Cry

screws me for 8 places on the golf and money back if your driver finishes 2nd to vettel. Makes webber at 6/1 look massive then imvho

Cold and damp FP1

i had an small interest on webber at 11/2, but fancy an outsider to now top timesheets. fore india drivers 80/1 and 100/1 but session has just started Cry

Well, Zazu how many times has this happened so far this year?  Add to that the rule changes, weather and the fact that webber goes well at silverstone and I'd sooner be the bookie.
By:
Zazu
When: 09 Jul 11 05:33
are you reffering to webber topping fp1? if so a lot!

webber going well at silverstone is a positive Confused
don't think we've had a 1-2 this year, but we haven't been to silverstone before have we Cool
