Pitlane Punt: The Top of the Crop Stop Punt

Pitlane Punt: The Top of the Crop Stop Punt

We were all shocked when Red Bull suffered a disastrous double retirement at the opening grand prix of the season.

Which raises a question about the reliability of the top F1 teams...

Bet that any of the big three teams will retire a car at the next race. Read on to play this Punt.

The bet:

  • Bet on Leclerc, Sainz, Hamilton, Russell, Perez or Verstappen retiring at the next grand prix in the season.
  • This means any DNF for any of those six drivers, including retirements that are still classified due to the 90% race distance rule.
  • Not qualifying or not starting the race does NOT count as a retirement.
  • If one of the drivers is replaced for a race, the bet will still count.
The odds:
  • 3:1 odds
  • Odds changed 5th Sep 2022
The stake:

  • Up to 8 of your Losers Points.

Example:

  • If your bet was 3:1 odds with a 8-point stake, and Leclerc's car breaks down while battling a Haas, you win the punt. You'll get back your 8-point stake plus winnings of 24 points.

Deadline:

  • This punt applies to the next race of the season, and must be played before the start (lights-out) of that race.

Result: 

  • The result will be announced in the scores for that race, where your stake will be paid or your winnings given.
