The new season is upon us. It is a great and joyous time. (Fingers crossed for Ferrari.) That being said, it’s time to do my yearly thing of betting odds, in my continuing attempts to reach statistical significance.

The values are mangled because I couldn’t get to the William Hill website in time between Saturday practice and qualifying.
As for the race, if Mercedes keep that up, they’ll have won by the middle of the season, and the people they advertise on their cars are going to ask them to slow down because they’re getting no coverage.
