I’m not a better myself, but since I’ve heard of how someone broke the bank putting a tenner on Button in 2009, I always think it’s interesting to check out the bets.
Despite being right up at the top in testing times, Felipe Massa stands at odds of 1:32 (if you bet £1, you win £32). Even Nico Hülkenberg at 1:40 might be an interesting outside bet. What do you guys think: worth a £10 bet, or too unlikely?8th March 2014, 17:37 at 5:37 pm #251267AnonymousInactive
Not a betting man either, but a bookmaker who shall not be named, is giving Massa at 20/1 odds. An each way bet would even be a nice little earner if it came to pass. I’ll have a ponder about that.8th March 2014, 20:29 at 8:29 pm #251286StevenParticipant
Well, it’s better odds than the lottery, so if you have a tenner to spare, why not?
I can’t stand any betting losses so I don’t bother with it in the first place. I’d rather put my tenner towards a couple of good beers for when I sit down to watch a race – money much better spent, in my opinion (unless, of course, the bet would turn out to be a winning bet).8th March 2014, 21:14 at 9:14 pm #251292sbl on tourParticipant
thinking of going for a williams 1/2 in aus, what do you think8th March 2014, 21:23 at 9:23 pm #251294ForzaAlanRabbitParticipant
Massa for championship? Seriously?
As much as I like Felipe and Williams I see little point in betting for him in the championship. He may finish in the top ten but to win Williams would have to have a faster car than Mercedes and that seems unlikely to happen.8th March 2014, 22:17 at 10:17 pm #251298JamieFranklinF1Participant
There is no reason why Massa and Williams can’t win the Championship, especially if they are as reliable as in testing. I still think Bottas may be the better bet, especially at 50/1 if you’re going for a Williams driver.
Why not go the whole hog, pray for extreme unreliability, and Bianch/Chilton/Ericsson/Kobayashi to win the first race at 1000/1 ;)17th March 2014, 15:37 at 3:37 pm #251309ToddParticipant
Williams has the best facilities, one of the largest groups of employees and now has a lot of spare cash… I think they could do some good things. ;)
