Suggested Bet: Lewis Hamilton win at 15/10

Hamilton failed to deliver for us last week but in running 2nd we got our money back courtesy of the World Sports Betting “Money Back” Promo for 2nd place – see details on the banner below – and I am happy to wade in with him again as he is in great form and prior to last years 3rd place he had won the previous 2 Japanese GP’s.
