Formula 1 2017, British Grand Prix, Betting Preview


The Silverstone Circuit in England plays host to the British Formula 1 Grand Prix on Sunday the 16th July.


Valtteri Bottas celebrated his 2nd F1 win last week in Austria. He started from pole position, leading for all but one lap and crossed the line 0.6 seconds ahead of Championship Leader Sebastian Vettel.  Daniel Ricciardo completed the podium with Lewis Hamilton having to settle for 4th place.  Bottas had a lightning start pulling away so quickly that it was investigated by the race control but was found not to be a jump start.
In the Championship Standings Vettel has extended his lead over Hamilton by 20 points and has shortened from 11/10 to 9/10 the same price as Hamilton who is out from 7/10 prior to the Austrian GP.

Race History

Due to rain the 2016 British Grand Prix began behind the safety car.  Hamilton took the victory followed by Rosberg and Verstappen but Rosberg was demoted to 3rd after he received a 10 second penalty which reduced his championship lead to just 1 point over teammate Hamilton at that time.

Suggested Bet: Sebastian Vettel at 22/10

Hamilton is a worthy favourite having won the last 3 GP’s on his home turf but I am not convinced that Vettel should be 3 times the price on current form. I was on him last week and while he failed to win I did get my stake back thanks to the “Money Back” Promo for 2nd place – see banner below – and I am more than happy to get on the German again this week.
