The British Grand Prix

The British Grand Prix

After a successful week, I’m ducking out of trading seriously today to watch some sport and do a few other things.

British Grand Prix stats

The British GP is curious in that, for a non-street circuit, the average outcome is quite variable from Grid to Finish. It’s the least certain race outside the street circuits. 71% of poles end up on the podium and it’s 50/50 whether second or third on the grid will end up on the there also.

Formula one is back this weekend, so we will get to see how the new rule changes shape the sport this season.

The move to speed up the cars and make them more demanding is a welcome one. The drivers will enjoy it and hopefully, the fans will too. I delved into the sport in depth a few years ago and have kept all the records up to date to look at key aspects of it from a trading perspective. …

Testing times? Profit from them

Testing times? Profit from them

Trading on Formula One racing may seem unusual and starting to trade even before the season has even started even more unusual, but it can often present some really good opportunities.

I was going to the Open Golf, because it is in the south this year. But given recent events I think …

Not often you see a formula 1 race like that! I lost count of the number of times Jenson Button pitted, then he goes on to win the race!

Sometimes it’s just nice to watch the sport, especially when it’s this entertaining.
