Roy The Boy previews the Malaysian Grand Prix and the 7/4 offered by Skybet about no safety car being used looks a very good bet.
There’s No Good Reason for a Safety Car in Sepang
Sky Bet are offering a whopping 7/4 about a Safety Car NOT being needed in this Sunday’s Formula 1 race at Sepang, Malaysia. It is nonsensical.
The Safety Car has been required here just three times in the past 12 years. On two of those occasions it was rolled-out purely to ‘slow’ the race due to heavy rain. Only once has it been needed for an accident/incident.
Traditionally this race has been staged at the end of March when rain is more likely and most weather forecasts currently state this weekend’s race will probably be ‘dry’. As a real bonus Sky Bet void Safety Car bets if a race starts behind a the ‘pace car’.
I do concede some run-off areas have been replaced with gravel traps since the last F1 race was staged here. But, at the same time, drainage has been improved, some corners have been banked and all the bumps have been taken out of the circuit. The negativity of gravel traps (from our NO Safety Car viewpoint) has therefore been more than compensated for.
