The most expensive gizmo competition in history starts its 2003 tour this weekend at the Albert Park circuit in Melbourne with the first round of the World Formula One Championship. There's not much we can add to the hype, but we can offer some insights into making the most of the weekend's festivities -

Those people wishing to have a flutter on the Grand prix might wish to look at some of the betting gizmos which are available for comparing odds from all the different bookmakers at www.oddschecker.co.uk and www.betbrain.com. As these sites don't include many Australian bookies, you can see all the Australian bookmakers at www.betting-ring.com/australia.html. Prior betting history on the last two F1 seasons can be had at www.onthepunt.com.au.

Happy punting!
