Back Schuey to take record win

The question to ponder for Hungary is just quite how helpful Michael's 'help Rubens' approach will be in Budapest. Okay, the championship is done and dusted and Ferrari want Barrichello to finish second, but that didn't stop Michael at Hockenheim three weeks ago. It's unlikely to stop him until he's achieved a record 10th victory either, so Michael at 4-5 with Paddy Power is probably better in Hungary than Rubens at 3-1. Then, once he's achieved number 10, Ferrari pundits can switch to Rubens for the remaining races

Back Schuey to take record win

Hungaroring is a circuit on which McLaren can expect the MP4-17 to go well, so their odds look interesting relative to Williams. While Montoya and Ralf Schumacher are 6-1 and 10-1 respectively for the win, Coulthard and Raikkonen are available at 12-1 and 14-1. Remember the team performance at the high downforce Monte Carlo and then at Magny-Cours? An each-way bet is recommended, or else DC at 13-8 for a podium and Kimi at 7-4. Either McLaren man is 16-1 for pole.

Pole will probably go to a Ferrari but it's worth pointing out that at Hockenheim, now a higher downforce venue, Ralf Schumacher was quickest after three runs. He's offered at 9-1 for Hungary.

The core problems Yas Marina’s long-awaited tweaks won't address

OPINION: Changes to the layout of Abu Dhabi’s circuit aim to reverse the trend of insipid Formula 1 races there - the promoter has even described one of the new corners as “iconic”. And that, argues STUART CODLING, is one of this venue’s abiding failings
