Team orders meant my tips came undone this week...
Formula 1 wouldn't be the same without a bit of controversy though, so despite my two near misses (otherwise known as failures), I've totally enjoyed the excitement and entertainment provided so far this season.
Despite making an overall loss, a few tips came up, so this is the summary of how things went...
Pre-Qualifying TipsTo Win Outright:
10 points on Mark Webber at 13.0 - LOSS
As Murray Walker used to say 'if is formula 1 spelt backwards' and if Sebastian Vettel had obeyed team orders this would have been a big winning bet. However, as Ron Dennis used to say, 'second place is first of the losers' and unfortunately second place for Mark meant this was a losing bet.
Top Six Finish:
20 points on Nico Rosberg at 2.25 - WIN 45 points
Mercedes had a strong weekend and in the end Nico was very vocal in expressing his disappointment at not being allowed to pass his team-mate Lewis (who was short fuelled and therefore cruising to the end) for a podium finish. Nico still brought his car home in 4th though, to ensure this was a winning bet.
