Lewis Hamilton will turn out at Hungary this weekend with a 14 point deficit to team mate Nico Rosberg in the F1 Drivers Championship. The two Mercedes drivers have pretty much had everything their own way this season. At Hockenheim last weekend, Germany’s Rosberg won his home race for the first time in his career, while Hamilton could only battle his way to third place on the podium. So it was a fantastic week for Rosberg, who watched Germany win the World Cup and got married as well.

So will it be Hamilton’s time in the spotlight again in Hungary? The British driver has won four times in Hungary during his career and back to back in the last two years at a track which he loves and which he excels at. Hamilton has not managed to land a Pole Position since back at Spain though, six races ago, and that could be crucial to his chances here. On all but one occasion that there has been a Mercedes 1-2 finish this season, it has been the one out of Rosberg and Hamilton who has started in front on the grid who has gone on to take the win.

So getting an advantage from Pole is crucial and Hamilton is trading as an 8/11 shot with Bet365 to land it, but it is Rosberg, with four Pole’s in the last five races, who is trending heavily in the race to the front of the grid, and is perhaps a more appealing 5/4 shot to lead the way in Hungary on the weekend.

But unlike Rosberg, Hamilton has big experience of winning in Hungary, including back to back victories there in the last two years. Rosberg failed to get on the podium last season, with Hamilton taking the chequered flag impressive in his Mercedes, and that victory was ran from Pole position as well.

Lewis Hamilton odds of 11/8 to win the Hungarian Grand Prix at Bet365 are going to be eaten up by punters. It is going to be worth looking for a Forecast as well for the two Mercedes drivers, but head over to the Without Mercedes market for some extra value in Hungary Grand Prix betting. The in-form man at the moment is Williams’ Valtteri Bottas who has been on the podium in each of the last three races, including back to back second places at the British and German Grands Prix. Bottas is 2/1 Without Mercedes market. The main challenger to him getting on the podium, excluding the Mercedes duo of course, is going to be Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo, who is a 3/1 shot.

Even though it is his teammate Nico Rosberg’s home Grand Prix, Britain’s Lewis Hamilton is running as 4/7 outright favourite with Bet365 to land the German Grand Prix on the weekend. The Mercedes drivers go head to head again in the next round with momentum swinging back to Hamilton at the start of the month as he took the win at the British Grand Prix, with Rosberg retiring after 28 laps.

That has closed things up at the head of the Formula 1 Drivers’ World Championship, as Rosberg holds just a four point lead now over Hamilton. It is a bit of a banker that it will be a Mercedes winning the race (1/25) as all but one race so far this season has seen either Hamilton or Rosberg take the chequered flag. Who will dominate in Germany?

Can Lewis Hamilton ruin Rosberg’s big week?

It has been a big week for Rosberg, not only with Germany winning the World Cup, but he also got married. It would crown a pretty strong week for him if he can take the win, but Rosberg hasn’t got a great home record in Germany. He has yet to take a win at the race and his best finish was fourth place back in 2009 when he was driving with Williams.

So advantage could be with Hamilton here as he won the German Grand Prix twice before in his career, in 2009 and in 2011. Hamilton ran home in fifth place last year and with five wins in nine races ran this season, then this time around he does make some better value this week to bank on. The lack of results in Germany so far for Rosberg does raise a question mark or two, even though he is running at 2/1, which punters will be tempted to have a crack at. Rosberg is 7/4 in the Pole Position market behind Hamilton at 8/15.

Paddy Power

The British Grand Prix betting roars back into action this weekend and online betting site Paddy Power have a Money Back Special running for the event. Place a bet of up to £50 on the British Grand Prix outright winner market and if your selection fails to finish, then you will get your lost stake refunded as a free bet!

British Grand Prix betting will make up part of a fantastic sporting weekend. Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton is trading as 4/6 favourite to land the win. Between Hamilton and his teammate Nico Rosberg, they have led Mercedes to win seven of the eight races this season, so you probably don’t have to look to far in the betting market.

But can the hometown hero deliver the goods? He is odds-on to win on home turf, which would be his second British Grand Prix title after winning back in 2008. However, the stats don’t particularly lean towards him landing the victory on Sunday, because that victory for Hamilton was the only time in the last 13 editions that a Briton has taken the win at the British Grand Prix.

Hamilton’s second place in 2010 was the only time in the last five years that a Brit has been on the podium. In seven previous races at the British Grand Prix, Hamilton has only been outside of the top ten just the one time, having taken the three podium finished. Overall from 90 British Grands Prix there have only been seven British winners, and only 14 podium appearances by Brits.

So where does all that lead you in your British Grand Prix betting? Probably to Nico Rosberg who is looking more appealing at 7/4 to take the win. Rosberg was beaten by Hamilton in second practice, but is value, having not finished outside of the top two this season, and will be carrying momentum after winning the Australian Grand Prix.

Will it be the Lewis Hamilton show again this season in Austrian Grand Prix betting? Hamilton was dominant in practice on Friday, putting in significantly quicker times than his Mercedes team mate Nico Rosberg at the Red Bull Ring. It has led to Hamilton also dominating the outright winner market for Austrian Grand Prix betting at a price of 8/13. Hamilton, who is second in the Formula 1 Drivers’ World Championship, 22 points adrift of Rosberg, will see his chance to try and close the gap a little bit.

At the last Grand Prix in Canada, for the first time this season, there wasn’t a Mercedes win and only the second time this season that there hasn’t been a Mercedes 1-2. So there is still going to be decent value in taking a Hamilton/Rosberg Dual Forecast wager in this one, because once against they were looking by far the quickest, with Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso doing a good job but still on average looking a second slower than the Mercedes drivers.

This is the first time since since 2003 that the Austrian Grand Prix has been revived, its standing helped by Red Bull in purchasing the A1-Ring. So there is no current history to look at to influence your betting, so just run with hot form at the moment, which all points to the Mercedes drivers. Lewis Hamilton is trading at a price of 1/2 in Pole Position betting at the Austrian Grand Prix, with Rosberg at 7/4.

Lewis Hamilton

The famous Monaco Grand Prix betting runs this weekend, and it is looking like another Lewis Hamilton show. The Mercedes driver has been pretty much immaculate this season, with only really his team mate Nico Rosberg being able to get close to him. Hamilton was running in fine form during practice on Thursday, topping the first practice times and finishing second to Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso in the second practice session.

Hamilton has now won four of the five races this season in F1, the last four on the trot. The running trend has actually been a Hamilton/Rosberg 1/2 in the last four races as well, and a Hamilton/Rosberg dual forecast is offering some decent value at 8/11 with online betting site Paddy Power at Monaco.

With Hamilton now at the top of the Formula 1 Drivers’ World Championship, three points ahead of Rosberg and the rest of the field trailing badly in their wake, it could be another big weekend for Mercedes at the famously cool Monaco track.

Hamilton is ruining as 4/7 favourite to take Pole, with Nico Rosberg at 7/4, and in the Monaco Grand Prix outright winner market, you are looking at the same two against, with Hamilton odds on at 8/1, with Rosberg second favourite at 15/8. Just to put their dominance into context, reigning world champion Sebastian Vettel is third favourite to take the win at 11/1 with Paddy Power.

Online betting site Paddy Power have a F1 betting promotion running for the Monaco Grand Prix. If your backed driver in the outright winner market fails to finish then the bookmaker will refund lost stakes up to £100. Great coverage worth snapping up there and new customers registering an account with Paddy Power can get up a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus.

Online betting site Betfred have a great money back special running for Bahrain Grand Prix betting this weekend. It has been a fantastic start to the new season and the new rule changes for Mercedes, with Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton occupying the top two spots in the Drivers’ World Championship standings after two races. It was Rosberg who took a win in the opening race of the season in Australia, with Hamilton taking the chequered flag ahead of his team mate at the Malaysian Grand Prix.

With the two of them completely in a league of their own during Friday’s practice, it looks as if Hamilton really has the car behind him this season to be the outright favourite to land the title. However, there is a long way to go in the season of course, but Hamilton was fastest in Bahrain’s Friday practice ahead of Rosberg, and online betting site Betfred have a money back special running on him.

Lewis Hamilton is 4/7 favourite in Bahrain Grand Prix betting, with Rosberg at 2/1. The rest of the market then reads Sebastian Vettel at 14/1 and everyone else bar 25/1. For all the hopes that this season was going to be more competitive and less of a procession, it doesn’t look as if any other team has the means to get close to Mercedes at the moment.

However, this could be the week to try and have a longer shot at some value in the rest of the field, because with online bookmaker Betfred, you can back a selection in the outright winner market if your selection finishes 2nd to Lewis Hamilton, then they will refund your lost stake as a free bet up to £200!

Formel 1 Suzuka - Red Bull

The curtain raiser to the new F1 season will once again throw Australian Grand Prix betting the way of punters. It’s always trickier to make calls on race winners for the opening event of the season, simply because there is no form to go by, so you can’t see which cars are running well and who is trending. Because it is more of a crapshoot for your F1 betting off the starting line, it means that there is some fantastic value around, so there is good news.

2014 Australian Grand Prix Betting Odds at Bet365
Lewis Hamilton 7/4 (Mer), Nico Rosberg 7/2 (Mer), Fernando Alonso 9/1 (Fer), Felipe Massa 9/1 (Wil), Jenson Button 12/1 (McL), Sebastian Vettel 14/1 (Red), Kimi Raikkonen 16/1 (Fer), Valtteri Bottas 16/1 (Wil), Kevin Magnussen (McL) 16/1

The teams have rigorously been testing their new set ups, and of course new drivers, with the big move of Kimi Raikkonen joining Fernando Alonso at Ferrari this season. There are big chances to the F1 racing season this time around with new turbo hybrid engines, a reduction in the aerodynamic downforce and a fuel limit as well. It has all been designed to try and make the season more competitive, more evenly matched and hopefully keep excitement going to the final wire.

It is Lewis Hamilton in his Mercedes who is trading as outright favourite for Australian Grand Prix betting at a price of 2/1 with Bet365. His Mercedes team has, for many, looked the most impressive car during testing and pundits seem to think that Hamilton is going to really be in the hunt for another World Championship title this year. Hamilton has actually been priced up as 9/4 favourite in 2014 F1 Drivers Championship betting with Bet365.

Hamilton also heads up the Pole Position market for Australian Grand Prix betting at 6/5 ahead of teammate Rosberg at 10/3. Sebastian Vettel is back at 11/1. What perhaps is one of the most exciting prospects of the new season is that the team which has been most dominant over the past few season, Red Bull, struggled through their testing. There was a lack of performance coming from their Renault engine and couldn’t seem to nail down any kind of reliability either. So Vettel’s shot at a fifth Drivers Championship in a row (4/1) doesn’t look immediately strong, and it could leave punters pondering over where to place their bets this term. But write Vettel and Red Bull off at your peril.

The Ferrari team have two world class drivers in their ranks now with Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen and that could either lead to some fantastic competitiveness internally, or it’ll tear the team apart. Still, it is a high quality pairing. Nico Rosberg should benefit from the quality that Mercedes have been showing through testing, while there has been a lot of talk about a big Williams revival as well as McLaren looking in decent shape.

News that Michael Schumacher is showing signs of a recovery is the best possible on the eve of a new F1 season that promises more unknowns than a dinner date with master illusionist Dynamo.

There are some truly bizarre betting markets up and running, including whether Red Bull will actually manage to win a race in 2014. Surely their engineers can get their heads around the concept of eco-friendly engines and a cooling system that works? We’re certainly going to see a different side to Sebastian Vettel‘s temperament if testing is a reliable guide. The German has got used to winning in the best car but early signs are that he’s going to spend much of the next few months hitching a lift back to the pits. Red Bull just haven’t been able to get a handle on new regulations whereas some of their rivals have been positively glowing in the advent of the hybrid era. Sauber’Adrian Sutil and Esteban Gutierrez have been racking up the miles, for example, though probably not as quickly as they would like. Force India have regularly topped the time-sheets in testing and there are high hopes that Nico Hulkenberg and Sergio Perez can make a real impact on the Drivers’ Championship this season at a general 100/1 and 200/1 respectively while their team is 100/1 to spring a surprise in the Constructors’ Championship.

But I would expect Mercedes (10/11 with Ladbrokes and Skybet to win the Constructors’ Championship) to haul back any early advantage as the season progresses as the German constructor should be in their element with technology to the fore. Red Bull’s boss Christian Horner certainly believes that Mercedes could be in a league of their own this year once they’ve sorted out last-minute glitches and, in Lewis Hamilton, they have a driver who is more than capable of taking advantage with the right tools at his disposal. The Briton is a former world champion, of course, and naturally quick. He can also be ruthless and it’s no surprise that he is only a best 5/2 (bwin) to win this year’s Drivers’ Championship with Vettel now 21/5 on betfair in the light of Red Bull’s continuing problems – a fifth successive world title looks a very long way off. Hamilton’s stablemate Nico Rosberg is a general 11/2 with Ferrari‘s Fernando Alonso at 8/1 with BetVictor. McLaren‘s Jenson Button is 14/1 with bet365, BetVictor and William Hill and his rookie Danish team-mate Kevin Magnussen is 20/1 with Boylesports. The season gets underway at Albert Park in Melbourne this weekend.

Formula1 Sebastian Vettel

Sebastian Vettel became the youngest-ever driver to rack up four world titles in the Indian Grand Prix on Sunday, beating Michael Schumacher‘s previous record for the milestone by six years. With 36 career wins to his name, the German stands fourth on the all-time list and, still only 26, has so much time on his side that Formula One’s records are surely there for the taking as long as Red Bull continues to dominate the Constructors’ Championship.

Schumacher’s tallies of seven world titles and 91 grand prix wins are formidable targets for Vettel to aim at but the general consensus of opinion is that he is still nowhere near his prime – he has only been racing for seven years at the highest level – and could be regarded as one of the all-time greats by the time he calls it a day.

Vettel’s win on Sunday was his sixth in succession and his 10th overall this season. He has his critics and his antics at the Malaysian Grand Prix earlier this year won’t have gained him many new fans but it just shows how competitive he can be, even against team-mates. He is just 6/4 with Ladbrokes to win the last three grand prix of the year, despite already being out of sight of his rivals, and the same firm make him just 5/1 to overtake Schumacher’s total of seven world titles and 14/1 to beat his fellow German’s 91 career victories. If you think Vettel will continue his domination in 2014, BetVictor will lay you 11/8 that he win’s a fifth World Driver’s Championship (he is only 5/6 at William Hill). Lewis Hamilton is expected to be his biggest rival and is 9/2 with Paddy Power and bwin. Fernando Alonso is 11/2 with the latter.

The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is next up for Formula 1 fans and Vettel is once again a hot favourite (a best 5/11 with 888sport). He’s already won the race twice in the four years since it’s been part of the F1 calendar, though had to settle for third last year at the Yas Marina circuit behind Kimi Raikkonen. The Finn is a general 22/1 to stage an encore in his Lotus.

Bet Victor

The procession that the 2013 F1 Season betting has become heads to Japan on the weekend. Germany’s Sebastian Vettel is within sight of his fourth Drivers’ Title in a row now. Vettel can win the title again on Sunday if he takes a victory at Suzuka while main challenger Fernando Alonso in his Ferrari finishes lower than eighth. Fans of the sport have started to turn on Red Bull’s Vettel because of how easily he racking up the points. It’s gotten predictable, boring to some. But credit is due to the man, who once again has simply been too immense for the rest of the field.

Vettel has now racked up wins in the last four races of the season, five in the last six, to stretch his lead at the top of the standings. He’ll naturally be running as odds on favourite for the 2013 Japanese Grand Prix betting, trading at a price of 4/7 with online betting site Bet Victor. Just to put his dominance into perspective, Lewis Hamilton in his Mercedes, which is nowhere near as fast as the Red Bull, is back at 7/1 with the bookmaker to win. So you can think that only a retirement will stop Vettel from winning at Suzuka on Sunday.

2013 Japanese Grand Prix Betting Odds at online betting site Bet Victor
Sebastian Vettel 4/7, Lewis Hamilton 13/2, Fernando Alonso 7/1, Kimi Raikkonen 10/1, Mark Webber 14/1

So, for your 2013 Japan Grand Prix betting the best way to go may well to go and have a look at the Without Vettel Market where there is much better value around. This is because it is going to boil down to a shot between Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso, both priced at 11/4 with Bet Victor, without Vettel. Naturally the Spaniard Alonso in his Ferrari is going to make the sounder option, with three second place finishes in the last four races of the season. Hamilton has managed one third place in those same races, so lean towards the Ferrari man.

Helping Vettel’s favourites in this race at Suzuka, is the fact that he has won three of the last four races held at the circuit. Wherever you look there is just more and more reason to support Vettel’s favouritism. The only man breaking that run was Jenson Button, but he’s so far out of the competitive picture this season, he’s barely worth a mention. Alonso has won this race twice before, all the way back in 2008 and in 2006, the latter being at Suzuka. Another man in the field who is a previous winner of this race is Kimi Raikkonen, who took the chequered flag first at Suzuka in 2005.

It could be worth looking at Raikkonen for some extra value in the Japanese Grand Prix Without Vettel market for odds of 4/1 with Bet Victor. The Finnish driver took second place in South Korea last weekend. Beyond that it is a little hard to see value anywhere. There has been a big shift back towards Sebastian Vettel in the Pole Position betting market as well, with the German at odds on 4/7 favourite, with the competitive Hamilton back out at 3/1 now.

So it could be another procession for the season in Japan on Sunday. For your F1 betting would lean more heavily towards the outright winner market without Vettel.
