Here is something that you should know when it comes to strategizing your motorsport betting; what if the person who won is not the fastest driver on the track? Most of the inexperienced bettors and casual observers too normally make mistakes of thinking that the winner is always the fastest driver on track. This isn’t always the case.
It is not about being the Fastest
The truth is, oftentimes the fastest lap of the day may not generated by the best car or best driver on the track. A pretty common tactic of race leaders is strategically slowing down, both to preserve position, fuel and tires. So long as they can ensure second place, they don’t out maneuver them for first position.
A race further down the field on the other hand will give it everything that they have to catch up the lead. By doing so, they will be able to clock in higher lap times compared to the race leader or even the 2nd and 3rd positions.
This is actually the best time to check at outsiders or the underdogs who are not the common favorites or picks to win the race.
You could even find double chance betting markets which lets you put money on favorites to win. Aside from your main bet, you can choose a driver as well whom you think has the chance of taking the post for the fastest lap.
