MotoGP goes to Catalunya in Spain, which is a very slightly different configuration of the Barcelona track that F1 recently visited. If the weather is fair, then the pecking order of the first three races, before the rain-effected Le Mans, strongly suggests certain choices.
Indycar returns to the Detroit street-circuit for the first time since 2008. Again, I include (above) last year’s results-table with the non-oval and oval results separated out for reference, but the first four races of this season with the new cars obviously provide more up-to-date data (perhaps bearing in mind Alabama was a road-course).
DTM is racing at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, Austria, with the renovated circuit added to the calender just last season. This was previously the A1 Ring, and in a past incarnation was the more flowing and dangerous Österreichring. The three results this year give an idea of how DTM is shaping up. I presume Scheider’s poor luck will not last all season. It is worth with DTM looking back over a couple of years if you wish to gauge drivers’ longer term consistency.
The Dover oval is known as the Monster Mile. It has a concrete surface. It seems to be about middle-predictable by NASCAR standards, so not very.
I think once the stronger contenders have been selected, it will be about who do you trust most to not lose you a bunch of points.

If you want to leave a comment on this page, that is fine, but, as this page is effectively an extension of the weekly post, I suggest that it will be more cohesive if comments are left there instead.
