Interesting to see official results. Pic and Ricciardo surely started their timed laps after the checkered flag was out.

Pic 1st in official times... see the f1 website

I don't understand the rule then, they can set a time from the pits??  I don't blame the market for not believing it!

Maybe F1 didn't want empty results sheet and counted those late laps. Layed some 1.01 for Pic. Not a bad bet, thought there was a good chance to have timed laps erased because they were started after checkered.

I just watched the end of the session again mande on the F1 2012 mobile app.
You're right, it's not even close, Pic crosses the line for his winning lap at least a minute after the chequered flag falls!!  Betfair market still suspended...

Bet 365 paid out my 67p on Pic at 400/1 almost instantly and just after voiding my other losing bets (thinking there were no times set I'm guessing..)  so lucky ha..

"It tells you all you need to know about a washed out second practice session at Spa on Friday afternoon that the first timed lap came three minutes after the chequered flag fell." (http://www.formula1.com/news/)

Best laps were well under 3 minutes and Pic and Ricciardo were among last drivers to finish their timed laps at least half minutes after Maldonado who were first to record timed lap.

some are pretty certain all the times were too late including me.
don't think you're winning your lay though, it's either Pic or void IMO

yeah, probably all timed laps were started late. if there is no time at all then I think the winner is first driver who started any kind of lap, probably rosberg who were at the top of the standings before any timed laps were made.

Anyways I was pretty certain when I laid Pic that he is credited as winner but nearly no-risk at all for high reward.
