Essentially the Red Bull drivers have changed position for P3 in the WDC table.
This gives an impression of the raw data that go into the analysis. I basically gather odds from a UK, German and Spanish site and average them out.
And this is how they are rated by the punters and bookies: Alonso's odds are better than his result and he goes from P5 to P3. He basically switches places with Webber. Webber looses heavily with his shunt in Valencia. Vettel can narrow the gap to Hamilton.
The WCC table is represented slightly different from drivers because we have less teams than drivers. The last result appears on the bottom of each column. The table sees very little change. McLaren and Red Bull increase their lead on Ferrari and Mercedes. Renault, Force India, Williams and Sauber make good progress with the European race. Sauber hauls a very nice load for the Kobayashi drive.
This graph is a bit special. I have not simply used the team odds. I want to create a yardstick to show how the different cars are rated by the punters versus the respective WCC leader. So the team odds are divided by the odds of the leading team. In the relative car odds McLaren still lead the way followed by Red Bull and Ferrari on a distant third place with 5,56. Mercedes is now out of the picture because their odds simply are too bad.
The last graph is showing the personal WDC odds of a driver weighted by the car odds. This race there is little change. Vettel closes down on Hamilton but Alonso still punches above his weight. He may look good because his team mate it not pulling his weight as the Red Bull and McLaren drivers do.
