As season 4 of PSF1 comes to a close, we’re set for an epic title shootout in the highest tier, as four drivers look to put their name on the famous F1 trophy. salvatore033 is looking to become a double world champion, the first in PSF1 history, after an impressive season in F2 last season, he is odds on favourite to take home the title tonight. Meanwhile, gerkenator, who has led most of this season will be looking to get a good result and bring home the title after an unimpressive run of form of late. Meanwhile, Kingpin will fancy his chances to take him his first Drivers title, having to settle for a Constructors title last season. And the last of our title contenders, Leaping_Key, will be hoping for rain, chaos and mayhem to promote his chances of getting max points and bringing home an unlikely looking title.
We break down each drivers season and chances ahead of Germany..
Salvatore started his season strong with two podiums before being halted in his tracks with a DNF in Italy. Since Italy, Salvatore has never really found the form he had last season, but a first place in Belgium propelled him back up the table. Consistency has been key for Salvatore. Whilst he’s only scored 3 podiums in 9 races, he has consistently finished in the points, bar Italy, which is the reason he currently sits on top of the table, with one race to go. Salvatore is odds on favourite to take home the title at 10/11.
Gerkenator has been the exact opposite of consistent this season. His season started with a podium, before finishing 7th and then finishing 1st. Gerkenator could easily win this title, but with such inconsistency, nobody is sure where about he will finish when the chequered flag drops. A first place finish would see Gerkenator crowned champion, but so could a lower result if Salvatore or Kingpin drop points. Gerkenator has been plagued with troubles lately, and talking to Sky Sports earlier said, “I’m not standing for any bulls*it this race”, which shows exactly how he feels about recent races.Gerkenator is currently second favourite at EVENS.
Kingpin, who started this season with a puncture, has gone on to get two races wins and a couple podiums along the way. A couple outside the points have cost kingpin dearly, and he would most likely be leading the current table if he had better results in those races. Kingpin has had his fair share of bad lucky this season, but with a constructors title last season, he will be hoping for better, which may push him to fight for this title, to the wire. Kingpin currently stands third favourite for the title, at 2/1.
Our outsider, and underdog in this title fight, is the famous norwegian, who has been testing lots of new cars for the new season lately. Will all that unfamiliarity, put him off this chance to win a title? The only title contender not to win a race this season, will need to find the strength to get his first win in order to win the title. Three podiums and good point finishes have kept him in the title fight, just. But it’ll be tough for Leaping to win the title from this position. Leaping odds are the highest, but if you fancy your chances, you could get your money worth at 7/1.
