With is first career win in Montreal over the weekend the hard-charging BMW-Sauber driver overtook pre-race favorite Leonard Hamilton and landed him in the top sports gambling spot all by himself. And as if that wasn’t enough good news for BMW, his teammate Nick Heidfeld finished in the number two spot locking up 18 points for the team in the sports gambling competition.
F-1 betting fans certainly didn’t expect to see a one-two BMW sports gambling finish, but what was perhaps even more surprising to virtual gambling fans was the third place finish by Scotsman and perennial fan favorite David Coulthard. Coulthard has struggled all year long in the sports gambling and the six points he picked up from his podium finish were the first all year for the Red Bull driver in the virtual gambling.
The fantastic victory by Kubica, however, has been overshadowed by Hamilton’s race mishap in which he rammed the back end of defending sports gambling champ Kimi Raikonnen’s Ferrari in the pits, knocking himself and the Fin out of the sports gambling competition. Hamilton’s miscue not only cost him possible points in the virtual gambling competition, but also earned him a 10-place grid penalty for his carelessness in Sunday’s sports gambling race.
Hamilton looked to be the odds on favorite in the sports gambling up to that point. After setting a scorching pace in the qualifying and winning the pole, most sports gambling handicappers liked his chances and once the race began he set a fine pace before knocking himself out.
The young Brit now drops to third place in the sports gambling driver standings as the circuit heads to Magny Coors for the next F-1 sports gambling event. With the ten points for the victory Kubica catapulted to the number one spot in the table and with a fifth place finish Ferarri’s Felipe Massa shot up to second in the sports gambling points standing.
With the first half of the F1 season down and no clear leader having emerged in the sports gambling, this could be one very interesting race for the top spot at the end of the season.
