W e don't want to tempt you into risky bets. But when Daniel Ricciardo starts a Formula 1 race outside of the top three starting positions, you always have to expect everything. 'Somehow it always gets exciting when I win,' beamed the Shanghai winner on the podium in disbelief. The figures for this statement speak for themselves: In his 6 Grand Prix victories, the Red Bull driver started from positions 6,4,5,4,10 and 6 respectively.
Ricciardo only wins from behind
A few minutes before, no one could have suspected that the Australian raced from 6th place to the top within just 9 laps in the second half of the race. Even before the start, only a few experts trusted the man from Perth to perform the hussar piece. Anyone who bet on a Ricciardo victory in time got back 50 times their stake. For comparison: A successful bet on Pole man Sebastian Vettel would only have brought one and a half times the stake.t-b714ce4b-1158696.jpg ',' copyright ':' sutton-images.com ',' caption ':' Kimi continues to collect trophies - but no winners trophies.

We also cannot recommend a bet on Kimi Raikkonen. The Finn has now expanded his incredible series of winless races into the three-digit range. You can't even say that he always has no chance. After all, the Iceman has collected 23 small trophies for places 2 and 3 since the last success. But in the Ferrari it just doesn't want to jump to the top step of the podium.
