Ok UK goons, are any of the major betting sites doing multipliers on the F1? Maximise that profit and all that, I don't get much of a kick out of a single bet on a single outcome, that's all.

Had a quick nose at betfair and sky bet and neither of those seem to be doing them. Or I'm too thick to work out their stupid godamn interfaces.

edit: multipliers / accumulators, whatever the hell you want to call them

edit edit: ffs, ok sky bet do multipliers... stupid ui

Likewise, but at least it makes me cheer for some different guys.

I've been looking at 2014 noses, and I think Mercedes were the only ones to really get it right. Ferrari came close.

I was watching Ferrari onboard laps and the setup is so different it's hard to believe they're driving the same car. Kimi has massive understeer and Fernando is able to just throw the car right on the apex.

Might be something to do with Kimi's preference for steering feel. They might have a different steering rack/settings in there that make the car less responsive.

Super pumped for the new season. Expecting carnage! I reckon all the Renault teams will have to turn the motors down and the Ferraris will run out of juice 20 laps before the end.

Hamilton to piss it by a lap and everyone say it boring after 5 wins for the merc.

Nah Red Bull will just make some upgrades based on 'cost' or 'reliability' grounds or whatever and then their engines will be magically 10mph faster than everyone else's.

So it's pretty much definitely going to rain today. Really grey and rain is on the radar.

http://www.bom.gov.au/products/IDR022.loop.shtml#skip

At the very least the track will be damp. If the forecast is accurate though, perhaps storms,

quote:

Melbourne area
Partly cloudy. Isolated showers developing in the morning then increasing in the late afternoon and tending to rain over eastern suburbs this evening. Isolated thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. Winds north to northwesterly 30 to 45 km/h turning westerly 20 to 30 km/h in the evening.

Keep in mind that practice is at 5PM here so "Isolated thunderstorms this afternoon and evening" lines up perfectly. Tomorrow is about 10C cooler and showers during the afternoon.

I was about to say the same thing! Although judging by the lack of other tourists, it's a private viewing and the guy can obviously do whatever the gently caress he wants.

Mate and I were walking down the pitlane on Thursday and we stood in front of the Ferrari garage. There were distinct differences in the wings they'd given Kimi and Alonso. We figured that part of the time difference was because they were testing different parts in practice.

Alonso may well be faster than Kimi, but I can't see him being slower than Massa.

Alonso/Kimi setup preferences are like night and day. I have a feeling this won't end well for Kimi
