Pitlane Punt: Oscar the Slouch

Pitlane Punt: Oscar the Slouch

McLaren rookie Oscar Piastri had a rotten debut in Bahrain, running in 16th then becoming the first retiree of the 2023 season.

Will he keep up this incredible pace? Bet that his poor season will continue. Read on to play this Punt.

The bet:

  • Bet that Oscar Piastri will fail to finish in the top 15 in the next race of the season.
The odds:
  • 2:1 odds
The stake:

  • 7 points
  • Or 3 points for cowards


  • By "finish" and "top 15", we mean his position as he crosses the finish line, whether or not he is officially classified
  • Adjustments to the result due to post-race penalties are irrelevant
  • By "next race", we mean the next race on the F1 calendar


  • If you place this bet with a 7-point stake and Piastri trundles over the line 27 laps down in 20th place, instead of paying your stake, you win 14 points


  • This must be played by the scheduled start of the race in question


  • Winnings will be given or stakes taken in the scores of the relevant race
