F1 Australian GP Perez Win Group vs Verstappen, Sainz, Kvyat

Other sports - F1 2016 Australian GP - 20 Mar 05:00

A final tip from me for the Australian Grand Prix and this is for Sergio Perez to win the group bet vs Max Verstappen, Caros Sainz & Daniel Kvyat

From qualifying, Verstappen starts 5th, Sainz 6th, Perez 7th & Kvyat 18th

Perez therefore has Verstappen and Sainz ahead of him to beat but there are a few reasons why i think Perez is value in this market

Perez is the most experienced of the 4 drivers, he has completed 93 races, Verstappen has 19, Sainz 19 and Kvyat 37

He has took part in 5 Australian GP's compared to just 1 for Verstappen & Sainz and 2 races for Kvyat

In those races, Perez has placed 7th, 8th, 11th, 10th and 10th

Last season Verstappen retired after 32 laps, Sainz finished 9th and Kvyat retired on the formation lap before even making it to the grid

So last season, Sainz would have won this bet but started from 7th on the grid compared with 14th for Perez yet they only finished 1 place apart (10th-11th)

The main thing for me with this bet though is tyres-tyres-tyres

A new qualifying format was introduced for this season (it was a disaster but i wont get into that here)

Anyway, this new format seen the 8 quickest cars go through to the final qualifying stage - Verstappen and Sainz being in this group

But cars that were knocked out are able to choose any tyre to start the race on - Verstappen and Sainz must start the race on the tyres they completed their times on

This means cars starting from 9th back can use a harder/more durable tyre and have a good chance of making up positions because of this

F1 pundits and commentators noted that teams that were in or around 9th, 10th and 11th may even opt not to fight for places in the top 8 as the free tyre choice could be more of a benefit

Perez is also noted for being very good with his tyres, in his debut race infact, he completed the race with just 1 tyre change when all others needed at least 2 stops

In terms of pure pace, i think Perez will be better in race conditions, his car has the excellent Mercedes engine compared to a 2015 spec Ferrari engine in the Toro Rosso of Verstappen and Sainz whilst Kvyat is back in 18th with the Renault engine

So the most experienced driver in the group, the best engine in the group and free tyre choice makes me believe there is good value in the 5/1 that is available with BetVictor
