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 ?
Pause Switch to Standard View is this a fab bet on vettel ?

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.

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

well the point is it doesnt!

I'll lay you that 2/1 all day long how much would you like ?

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.
Report fkqmz July 5, 2011 3:21 PM BST
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.
Report fkqmz July 5, 2011 3:23 PM BST
i'd consider boosting to 4.0 on small bets but the correct price is 3.60.
Report pug munter July 5, 2011 5:19 PM BST
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

how have you calculated the correct price to be 3.6?

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.

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!

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

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.
Report SamH_123 July 8, 2011 12:20 AM BST
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
