Season analysis after Korea

Maldonado has partially turned his season around but not where it counts for betting. After a series of avoidable accidents Maldonado seems to have turned a new leaf after Belgium, largely staying out of trouble. However, this has not then yielded much success with only one top 10 finish since Belgium. To be worth a bet Maldonado needs also to see his Williams see some serious upgrades, unlikely this season. He win will almost certainly not be repeated and podiums are also nearly as impossible. Money could be made on a top 6 finish but only if running well in free practise and qualifying well. Generally though even top 10 finishes are not worthwhile as long as Sauber and Force India remain the quicker car.

Season analysis after Hungary

Maldonado is largely having a dreadful season, having only scored points twice this year. However, because one of those occasions was a victory, he usually has too low odds to be value for money. It is very unclear why Maldonando won in Spain so there is little reason to believe a victory will be repeated. Also, Maldonado is too aggressive on track for low odds betting, unable to consistently take top 6 or top 10 positions. Overrated due to his one off win, Maldonado is usually is among the worst value for money.

The only recommended bet is reaching Q3 in qualifying, having started top 10 on five occasions this year. With incidents unlikely prior to the actual race (though not impossible after purposefully crashing into Perez at Monoco), focusing bets on qualifying rather than the race is recommended for Maldonado.
