Betting for round eight: Gilles Villeneuve Circuit, Gran Prix of Canada 2005

Read these rules well before posting.
The purpose of the game is to guess the winner of each round, and bet some amount of credits to the winner. (I might add pole position, podiums or something later)
I will give you different odds for drivers in every GP, using odds found from various bookmakers. (some added by me)
Every poster will have 1000 credits to start with (At least if they join before the French GP) , but you can only place 100 credits for each round. If you manage to get your budget to 0 or in minus, you are simply out of the game for the rest of the season.
maximum bet is 100 and the minimum is 10 (try to keep your bets in round tens 10, 20, 30, ..., 100). If someone skips a round or doesn't use all 100 credits in the GP, the credits that are left unused are placed directly to his total credits.
Because it would be beneficial to skip rounds, your credits will be returned if the driver you guessed doesn't win but manages to get a podium.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Example: I placed 40 credits to Kimi in Monaco, with the odd 3 and 60 credits to Webber, i would get 40*3+60=180 credits for that round because Kimi won and Webber got to podium.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Guess example: (no nick needed)


20 msch
40 alon
40 barr


This would mean betting 20 credits for Micheal's victory, 40 to Fernando's and 40 to Rubens' victory.
----------------------------------------------------------------

*I'll change your bets to the other RBR driver if you have guessed the wrong one to race.;)

** In case a driver is unable to race and it is known before friday free practice, i'll try to add the

substitute to the list ASAP and all bets placed on the original driver are refunded. If a driver is unable

to race and it is NOT known before friday free practice, bets are not refunded and the substitute driver is

then in the "Any Other" category.
Deadline for posting and editing is before the start of Friday first free practice!
If something is missing, wrong, or left unclear just post and ask. All comments about the game are welcome, either good or "constructive" :)

Some input:
* Getting 1000 points when entering at any point of the season seems weird. If someone joins the game for the last race of the season, he/she will end up with a net of at least 900 points without actually having done anything useful. I would suggest that you'd get n*100 points available, where n= the number of races left in the season, for n<10.
* I saw that there were preliminary odds here earlier. I think the odds should be fixed and final from the start so one knows what returns to expect whenever you place your bet.

Input noted, hmm.. I might change the amount of credits for those who start late but I'll give this system couple of races (until we have 10 left) and see if there are a lot of people who have under 1000 credits. The game is supposed to be designed so that the return percentage is above 100% and people profit from playing, that's also why the bank also refunds your credits if your driver makes it to the podium. Your budgets should get above 1000 pretty easily.

I guess I can put the final odds straight from the beginning now on, you just don't get the thread so early next time.
