|The US Grand Prix has been lambasted from many quarters over the Michelin tyre debacle that left many F1 fans disappointed, particularly after the exciting qualifying session that promised a very close race. Ferrari looked ready for a comeback, Toyota was celebrating Trulliís pole position and McLarenís Raikkonen and Montoya looked like they would put up a strong challenge.|
As the parade lap finished and the crowd watched in stunned silence as cars headed to the pits, there were six F1 fans that leapt to their feet and cheered.
Six smart and savvy F1 fans worked out that if teams using Michelin tyres pulled out of the race, there would only be six cars left to race. Whilst the chances of such an event happening looked as likely as a Jordan driver finishing in a podium position, that is exactly what happened.
The six F1 fans also knew where to go to put their knowledge to work. The GrandPrixGame at www.grandprixgame.com allows anyone from almost anywhere in the world an opportunity to use their Grand Prix knowledge to win the Internetís largest Grand Prix Jackpot. The fans shared in nearly £20,000 with an unusual selection comprising two Ferraris, two Jordans and two Minardis. Itís hardly a bookmakerís regular Top 6 pick and not a bad return for a £1 stake.
