Formula One Grand Prix of Europe Betting 2011
The Formula One Grand Prix of Europe is one of the special races for both drivers and spectators on the F1 calendar. The race in 2011 is to be held on the Valencia Street Circuit which makes for some exciting and fast paced racing.
Formula One Grand Prix of Europe betting 2011 will heat up and intensify a little bit because the initial races have come and gone and this is the start of the approach to the business end of the race schedule.
The Formula One Grand Prix of Europe often pulls in some of the biggest crowds of all the F1 races. It will be a mad and hectic few days as the streets of Valencia close down but this is one of the few races across the world where a street is turned into a playground for professional race drivers.
Formula One Grand Prix of Europe Betting
Formula One Grand Prix of Europe betting will be difficult for this race because it is not a circuit that suits the faster cars in a straight line. There are plenty of places around the Valencia streets where overtaking is a possibility and where vital seconds can be lost during qualifying.
The stronger drivers and cars are going to hold all of the top positions but it is impossible to predict what order they will line up. Ferrari could gain back some ground in this race because Fernando Alonso is possibly the best driver in the world when it comes to nailing a narrow and complicated circuit similar to Monaco in its design.
Formula One Grand Prix of Europe Specifications
Formula One Grand Prix of Europe specifications include one of the smallest lap counts of the year. There are only 57 laps of this circuit because the length is much longer at 5.419 kilometres. Timo Glock holds the record lap time at just below 1:39 which is a staggeringly long time compared to a circuit like Canada.
The first sector of the track nearly reaches double figures in terms of corners which will make it very difficult for any driver who holds pole position to pull away as favourite in Formula One Betting. The straights in the second sector are where the time advantages will be built and the third sector is another section of difficult corners.
Formula One Grand Prix of Europe Contenders
Any driver who is able to put in a solid qualifying time has a good chance of doing well in this race. Anyone with a quick car at the front of the grid can make use of the second sector to challenge the dominance of the drivers at the top; Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton, Mark Webber and more.
This is one of the few races where Formula One Grand Prix of Europe contenders could have an impact on the final result of the race. The complicated series of corners at the front and back end of the track means that overtaking is possible regardless of whether a driver has a fast or slower car. Odds on the favourites in Formula One Grand Prix of Europe betting will remain short but there is good value in backing one of the contenders to at least place.
