This is an update on the current status of the two bets I placed, before the start of the Formula 1 season.
Bet 1 - Jenson Button to win 5 races this season
Bet 2 - McLaren to win the constructors championship.
I can safely say that the first bet is now over - since there are only 2 races left, and Jenson needs to win another three. It would be ironic if he wins them; but then that will go towards my second bet.
McLaren are currently lying are in second place, 27 points behind Red Bull. With 50 points available, and based on the Red Bulls not finishing this weekend, then there is a good possibility of this bet paying out!! Although the race in South Korea was a washout, quite literally, both the McLaren drivers did the best they could - although Jenson made a slight tactical error, when changing his tyres too soon!
With the race at Interlagos, Brazil in a couple of weeks, followed by the season closer at Abu Dhabi; whatever the outcome, it's been a fascinating and exciting season, with the usual drama that we expect from Formula 1.
