The British Grand Prix

After a successful week, I’m ducking out of trading seriously today to watch some sport and do a few other things.

British Grand Prix stats

The British GP is curious in that, for a non-street circuit, the average outcome is quite variable from Grid to Finish. It’s the least certain race outside the street circuits. 71% of poles end up on the podium and it’s 50/50 whether second or third on the grid will end up on the there also. On the retirement front, the British GP is below average. But because it’s a high-speed circuit, it can be pretty demanding on the cars and that means if there is a retirement, it’s likely to be mechanical.

One of my favoured memories from going to Silverstone was watching the Wimbledon final on the track one year. I took a picture to capture that odd feeling of watching Tennis from a Grand Prix circuit. Unlike today, it was raining back then. None in the forecast today.

I left a good job in the consumer technology industry to go a trade on Betfair for a living way back in June 2000. I've been here ever since pushing very boundaries of what's possible on betting exchanges and loved every minute of it.
