The F1 betting has finally reached the midpoint and with nine of the 18 F1 odds events in the bag for the 2010 auto racing season there has been one team that has been far away the best team. And unless Team Red Bull or perhaps even Ferrari makes a charge in the second half of the F1 betting season McClaren is going to run away with both the team competition and driver battle.
Through nine F1 odds faces McLaren sits atop the Constructor Cup competition with 248 points. After a getting off to a great start in Bahrain and Australia it had a couple off-races and saw its top spot in the F1 betting team competition slip away to a hard charging Team Red Bull. But over the past three F1 betting events McLaren has been spot on and the Red Bulls have been sup-par.
Team Red Bull now sits a distant second place in the F1 betting competition with 218 points. There is still plenty of time for this team to make a late season push but it’s struggled over the past few events. After finishing 1-2 in Monte Carlo the team grabbed just 15 points in the next F1 betting event in Turkey after driver Sebastian Vettel wrecked teammate and then points leader Mark Webber while leading the Turkish Grand Prix. Since then things haven’t gotten much better. The Red Bulls have been running great in practice and grabbed a couple poles but Webber hasn’t been on a podium since Monte Carlo.
Ferrari is the only other team that has any hope of trying to catch McLaren. But with just 165 points through nine races and only one driver that seems capable of scoring points (former F1 betting champ Fernando Alonso) it seems like little more than wishful thinking.
It’s also little surprise that McLaren is also dominating the driver standings as well. Former F1 betting champ Lewis Hamilton sits atop the point’s standings for with 127 points but the lead is hardly safe. Defending F1 betting champ and teammate Jenson Button is right on his heels with 121 points. Red Bull drivers Vettel (115 points) and Webber (103) are still very much in the hunt and it should make an exciting second half to the F1 betting season.
