Lewis Hamilton

On this page you find articles on Lewis Hamilton and sports betting in general.

Jules Bianchi

A first-ever Russian Grand Prix at Sochi this weekend would normally be causing much excitement in F1 circles but Jules Bianchi‘s life-threatening injuries are what is dominating everyone’s thoughts at present.

The young Frenchman, in only his second season in F1, spun off the rain-soaked Suzuka circuit in Japan on Sunday, crashing into a tractor that was trying to recover the damaged Sauber of Adrian Sutil. Typhoon Phanfone had already stopped the race once and organisers pulled the plug following Bianchi’s accident, leaving leader Lewis Hamilton as the winner by default. But there was no celebrating on the podium following the presentation ceremony as news reached the track that Bianchi was undergoing brain surgery. Ironically, all talk pre-race had been about the possibility of the Marussia driver joining Sebastian Vettel at Ferrari next season. Vettel was awarded third place at Suzuka, having started ninth on the grid, with Daniel Ricciardo fourth, but the defending world champion is still 54 points behind his Red Bull team-mate in the current standings and is well over 100 points adrift of Nico Rosberg with only four races of the season remaining. Rosberg now trails Hamilton by 10 points after finishing second at Suzuka and is now out to 9/4 (general) to win the World Drivers’ Championship – the Briton is a best 4/9 with BetVictor.

Sochi is, of course, unknown territory for everyone. The Black Sea resort, which hosted the Winter Olympics in February, has beaten Moscow and St Petersburg to stage F1′s first Russian Grand Prix. It’s a street circuit of almost 6km in length with a quarter of that utilising public roads. Most pundits believe that the momentum is now with Hamilton after a hat-trick of victories. He’s only a best 8/11 with BetVictor to make it four in a row in Sochi but this could the race in which Rosberg reminds everyone that the title race is far from won. The German took pole in Japan and Sochi looks similar in lay-out to both Albert Park in Melbourne and the Red Bull Ring in Austria, where Rosberg has already won this year. There is still very little to choose between the two Mercedes so it makes more sense to have a plunge on Rosberg to win in Sochi at Coral‘s 9/4 than back Hamilton at odds-on. Jenson Button is a general 100/1 to win the inaugural Russian Grand Prix and let’s hope the teams have better news of Bianchi when they arrive.

Daniel Ricciardo

The Singapore Grand Prix is probably the most thrilling on the F1 calendar. Ignore the fact that the Marina Bay street circuit is only quicker, in real terms, than Monaco. There is something about racing under lights than captivates the imagination. Drivers and fans alike love it – as do the TV cameras. Singapore’s modern skyline provides a breathtaking backdrop to the action and the circuit itself is one of the toughest of the year on the cars. The road surface is far from smooth and it can be tough to concentrate knowing you are barrelling along at high speed alongside concrete walls. High temperatures, humidity and an extended distance add to the heady mix and the pressure will be telling on Mercedes rivals Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton. Rosberg still holds a 22-point lead over his team-mate in the Drivers’ Championship but Hamilton took advantage of the German’s mistake to win at Monza last time, gaining some measure of revenge for a controversial collision at Spa which many don’t think was entirely accidental. We’re well into the second half of the season now so every point is going to be precious but bookmakers think that momentum is now with the Briton, who is now a best 10/11 to win the Drivers’ Championship. Rosberg is Evens on betfair and with Coral and William Hill. Hamilton is also favourite for this week’s Singapore Grand Prix at 4/5 with BetVictor and Coral with Rosberg available at 21/10 with Paddy Power. But this could be a race in which it pays to look beyond the Mercedes arch-rivals. Fernando Alonso has won twice in Singapore since it was first added to the calendar in 2008 but it’s difficult to place any faith in Ferrari at present and he’s given a 40/1 quote by BetVictor this year. Red Bull have won the last three, all through Sebastian Vettel, but it’s the world champion’s up-and-coming team-mate Daniel Ricciardo who provides the value bet. Vettel is 25/1 with sportingbet to complete a four-timer this weekend, twice the odds of Ricciardo (12/1 with Betfred and Stan James). That doesn’t look right at first glance but, whereas Vettel has shrunk in the face of Mercedes’ domination this year, the Australian has relished the challenge. His last three drives have been outstanding and he’s been on the podium after seven of the last 10 races. Beating Rosberg and Hamilton may be beyond him but the slowness of the circuit will help the Red Bull and another top three finish is 6/5 at William Hill.

The tussle for the 2014 Formula 1 Drivers’ World Championship heads to Italy this weekend, and Lewis Hamilton is running a 8/11 favourite to take the win. The British driver has fallen 29 points behind Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg in the World Championship standings, so needs a bit of a bounce back performance.

8/11 for Hamilton Italian GP win

Hamilton has failed to land a win in any of his last three outings, taking third place finishes in Germany and Hungary, while failing to finish at the Belgian Grand Prix. With Rosberg also managing just the one win in the last four races, the slight dip in performance and reliability from the Mercedes team has started to let Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo into the title race.

The Australian, with back to back wins at Hungary and Belgium has pulled within 35 points of second placed Hamilton. He is the man on the up and should be great value for a podium finish at Monza for a price of 6/4 with Bet365. The other outsider behind the two Mercedes drivers who is going well, is Williams’ Valtteri Bottas, a 6/4 shot to get himself into the top three in Italy.

So suddenly the season is getting a little more interesting after the procession of wins through the first half of the season by Hamilton and Rosberg. The two have been threatened by their team that one will be dropped if they can’t race together cleanly. This was after Rosberg admitted deliberately hitting Hamilton at Spa, which forced the British driver out of the race.

Out of the drivers who are the front of the running for the 2014 Italian Grand Prix betting, it is only Hamilton who has tasted victory at Monza before. He won it back in 2012. Three time winner and defending champion Sebastian Vettel has big history at the track is a a 5/2 shot to muscle his way onto the podium.

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.

Hungary Grand Prix Odds

Lewis Hamilton 8/11, Nico Rosberg 11/8, Valtteri Bottas 18/1, Felipe Massa 22/1, Daniel Ricciardo 28/1, Sebastian Vettel 33/1, bar 50/1

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.

British Grand Prix Odds at Paddy Power
Lewis Hamilton 4/6, Nico Rosberg 7/4, Daniel Ricciardo 20/1, Fernando Alonso 33/1, Sebastian Vettel 33/1, Valtteri Bottas 28/1, Felipe Massa 28/1

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.

Austrian Grand Prix Betting Odds at Bet365
Lewis Hamilton 8/13, Nico Rosberg 7/4, Daniel Ricciardo 20/1, Sebastian Vettel 25/1, Fernando Alonso 40/1, Felipe Massa 40/1, Valtteri Bottas 40/1

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.

2014 F1 Drivers Championship Betting Odds at Bet365
Lewis Hamilton 6/4, Sebastian Vettel 4/1, Nico Rosberg 5/1, Fernando Alonso 8/1, Kimi Raikkonen 14/1, Jenson Button 14/1, Kevin Magnusen 20/1, Felipe Massa 25/1, Daniel Ricciardo 50/1, Valtteri Bottas 50/1
