The inside line on the Japanese GP

Here's one where things might not be too straightforward. Normally, you'd say Suzuka equals Michael Schumacher and Ferrari, no question. And that could still be the way of it, with Michael on offer at a relatively generous 9-4

But, Schumacher needs only a point, remember, and merely finishing anywhere in the top eight will achieve that. Ferrari still wants the constructors crown of course, so Michael won't exactly be dawdling, but perhaps Rubens might get to fight it out at the very sharp end this time.

Bearing that in mind, I'd advise a look at some very attractive special forecast bets featuring Rubens in the first two. How about Rubens and Juan Pablo Montoya for first and second, either way round, at 12-1? Or perhaps you'd prefer Rubens and Ralf at 16-1. Or perhaps Rubens and Kimi at 12-1. All very attractive.

There's also the weather to consider. We know that if it was a totally wet race, Ferrari would be practically sure of a 1-2 given the performance of the Bridgestone wet, so 8-1 for Rubens/Michael is also worth covering. For the same reason, look carefully at Jenson Button's podium odds, or even the Sauber drivers and Giancarlo Fisichella for a very long shot.

On the other hand, if it is dry, there are those who suggest that Michelin will have a much better tyre for Japan than previously, so that Michael's advantage here could be a thing of the past.

It's all very much up in the air and don't forget the Renaults. I like the look of Alonso and Trulli at 20-1 and 33-1 respectively to win the race. Perhaps not outright, but one-fifth of the odds for a podium is worth serious thought.

Joey Mawson made waves in the middle of the last decade, beating future Haas Formula 1 driver Mick Schumacher - among other highly-rated talents - to the 2016 German F4 title. A run in F1's feeder GP3 category only caused his career to stall, but now back in Australia Mawson's S5000 title success has set that to rights
