The traditional review to the odds after the Brit GP is a bit late. So aplologies for that.
In the top group of the WDC table Webber and Vettel have now changed positions. In the tier two group Kubica and Rosberg have swapt positions and in the lower ranks Kobayashi has overtaken Liuzzi. Fundamentally nothing has changed except that Alonso now looks firmly to belong to tier two.
In the data table SKYbet UK have dropped Massa and Kubica from the list so that those values do not go any more in their world score. Bwin have dropped Schumacher so that his only odds now come from Ibetips.
The world odds change significantly with Webber now going to P3 from P5 and Alonso going back to P5 with very heavily stacked odds of 13.3 against him. Button looses moderately but does not change position. Vettel is almost unaffected getting only a 0.2 penalty on his odds. It looks like the punters and bookies are recognizing his pole and his strong recovery drive. Webber improves significantly from 8.5 to 5.8 but is still a long way from Vettel at 3.3. His previous mistakes don't seem forgotten.
The graph is also giving us some clues how the changes in personal performance level of the drivers impact on the odds. If you see Webber versus Vettel you see that the betting money massively changed their view after Mark managed two victories in Spain and Monaco. When he screwed up again in Valencia his odds went up significantly and his season graph looks indeed erratic like his performance over the season. Vettel's odds hardly change as he is putting in strings of pole positions when his car is undamaged and when he makes mistakes like the bad start in Silverstone he also makes big efforts like his recovery drive.
The other helpful aspect of the odds is that they put Button's points standing in proper perspective. Although Button is P2 on points he is only on P4 in the odds. I believe that this is his true chance to become WDC again.
In the WCC points table the McLaren dominance continues. They look like having a good advantage from the first half of the season. Red Bull again missed precious points by Vettel's botched start and puncture. Further down the order Mercedes have stabilized their position against Renault by Rosberg's podium. And sensationally Sauber overtake Toro Rosso for P7 in the constructors table.
The car odds of the teams that are ranked for the WCC look even more like a two horse race now. Ferrari is practically out of the game. Relative to the contenders their odds are now 11.5 at which point I usually took the team out of the graph. I'll wait a bit if they recover some ground because they suffered a lot of relatively heavy penalties in the last two races.
In the driver odds corrected by relative car odds Alonso is not in the game any more because his team has exceeded a 10.0 score. It starts to be too distortive at this point. I might just have left out that graph now as both remaining teams are almost equal on odds. So this graph currently mirrors the absolute driber odds.
