This is a track that is very fast, with plenty of passing and one that not many of the present F1 odds points leaders have had much success in the F1 betting odds at.
This race like so many in the past decade and a half was dominated by F1 odds legend Michael Schumacher. Although the driver was German by birth, racing anywhere in Italy was like racing having a home track advantage thanks to Ferraris deep F1 betting odds fan base in the county. And that tradition continues today as Ferrari’s top two drivers are tied for the lead in the F1 odds point standings as the race approaches and will no doubt have a huge advantage in the F1 betting odds.
But surprising, for their abundance of F1 odds success elsewhere, neither defending F1 odds champ Kimi Raikkonen nor Felipe Massa has had much luck at this event. Of the current drivers in contention for the F1 odds title only two-time F1 odds champ Fernando Alonso has won here. F1 mainstay David Coulthard has also won here back in 1997. Of the other current drivers the only other to win the F1 odds here is Reubens Barrichello.
In fact, if there is a dark horse favorite in the F1 odds entering this event, it has to be Barrichello. For years, Barrichello played second fiddle to Schumacher and knows what it’s like to taste victory in front of a passionate Italian F1 odds crowd. The Brazilian has won here twice (2002, 2004) and despite being tenth in the F1 odds points standings, he’s shown great improvement over the last few races and could take the F1 odds makers by storm.
The host track for this event is all straights and hairpins with little else. It’s a fact race with plenty of passing opportunities which should translate to an exciting race for the F1 odds fans.
