Heading into the 2008 F1 betting season it should come as little surprise than that there is also plenty of new changes for this year’s auto racing betting. F1 betting fans were hardly surprised to learn the news that perhaps the sports biggest star had transferred teams.
Since the Monaco Formula 1 betting event last year in May there had been growing seeds of discontent in the McLaren camp. And as usual when a driver rift breaks out in F1 betting one of the drivers has to leave in. In this case it was two-time F1 betting champ Fernando Alonso. McLaren and the Spaniard parted ways in the off season when the team released the driver who resigned with F1 betting power Renault.
The repairing of the F1 betting champ with Renault seems to be a great fit for both and after a disappointing season in 2007 the team looks set to challenge for the F1 betting title in 2008. Alonso will join Nelsonihno Piquet in what should be one of the top three or four teams in F1 betting. If Renault and Alonso can remake the magic they had in years past the driver should see plenty of podium finishes this year.
Driver changes aren’t the only changes in F1 betting either. This year Force India will wade into the waters of F1 betting by sponsoring a team. The team’s lead driver Adrian Sutil is a native Indian with several seasons of F1 betting experience. The venture marks the first time and Indian company has ventured into auto racing betting. There are not a lot of expectations for the team with Ginacarlo Fischella driving the team’s other car.
Honda is also increasing its presence in F1 betting by supplying engines to a second and closely linked team under the name of Super Aguri. Reubens Barichelo will head up stable of the Honda drivers and with the performance of the cars improving rapidly this team could surprise some F1 betting fans when it comes to the auto racing betting this season.
